It was so lovely to wake up to Spring here in Brisbane this morning. Sun pouring through the glass doors, and casting its rays on the morning dew settling on the grass outside. Sipping coffee and munching on toast with my little girl snuggling up to me on the couch.
A couple of days ago, things were a little different, dark skies, and a thunderstorm threatening, so we escaped for some shopping, denying it's looming presence. It didn't take much to restore my hope for Spring when this lovely set of drawer liners caught my eye. They smell devine, just perfect for my daughters set of drawers (which have that musty smell that seems to come along with anything second hand).
Hmmm, what to do with the sweet smelling off-cuts, definately not throwing them away..
so with scissors in hand I came up with..
Some pretty hearts to hang up in the wardrobe, and the perfect way to use up those little ribbons that come sewed into the shoulders of tops (I cut them out and keep them in a box for a rainy day, which it was this day).
Hmm, sitting there looking out through the glass doors, scissors in hand, the misty rain was telling me to stay indoors, and with the little one sleeping soundly, I didn't need to be told twice. So with a little rummage through my crafty stash, and a flip through an old Handmade magazine, I came up with these...
Peg magnets! (in my favourite colour of course).
Nothing like the weather, rainy or sunny for a little inspiration to create!
