Today I'm loving...

..the beautiful illustrated fabrics on these bargains I picked up in TK Maxx for the kids!

 Isak rockin the Polar Bear top - €4!!

Ruby's pretty new dress - might take the sleeves off it though - a bit puffy:)

And this pretty skirt - €10! Loving the Parisian Style Illustration

 And a puppy coat for little man! It's a lovely matt rainproof coat. Very cosy too.
Got to love puppy illustration!

Try Something new - Maps

Recovered a lamp I've had with Cavallini vintage-style map paper. 
I've been meaning to do this for AGES!

Cavallini Papers & co make beautiful classic papers. 

I bought mine in Avoca - but I think you can get them all over.

Try Something New

My lovely Brother and Sista-in-law were having a
'Try Something New' week
with their kids.
Their one was to do with food -
the kids had to try a new food every day and got a treat at the end of the week.

Such a good idea.

I was thinking about us grown ups -
we often get into patterns of behaviour
which means there are
HUGE chunks of life
we don't get to experience.

So.. my plan is -
every Friday I hope to post on
Something New that I've tried.

This week - Painting on black backgrounds.

Must do more! I like the outcome:)
