bits & pieces

Little snippets of the past few days...

I participated in the GeorgieLove 2009 Swap-A-Palooza, and I just received the most amazing parcel from lovely Marianne of Applehead. I got a gorgeous CD, some art prints, and, and, so excited, a pincushion! Marianne had checked my blog and saw that I really wanted a new pincushion and sent me this: so gorgeous. She made it all herself, and it's even got some embroidery by her! It's like my dream pincushion.

Marianne also sent me some of these super cute prints of her original artwork. So awesome! See more at Applehead.

Got a big yummy box of organic vegies home delivered from The Green Line. Nice! Not sure about the plastic bag bizzo though, will see if they will go bag free for me. I love that I can get organic vegies and delivery is actually a more environmentally sustainable way to purchase than buying at a supermarket, however I don't love the plastic & new cardboard boxes. Will let you know the progress!

Chillaxing with my new issue of Frankie! Yeah!

Making clutches, yeah! Blue Wrens on Vintage wool, available in my Etsy shop!

I called up the greenline and organized for myself a delivery. I told them about the packaging problem, and i also told them that you recommended them to me through your blog, so I think you're getting a gift package soon! :)
I love the blue wren clutch, btw, it's beautiful!
