I'm Engaged!!!

Well, the lag in blogging this week was because the darling Mr Honi proposed!!!! He was a compelte romantic and proposed on my birthday, down on the water's edge in Sydney overlooking the Opera House and the Bridge. Then he whisked me away to the Blue Mountains for 2 nights together (hired a really nice car and we drove down the same night) and then to the Hunter Valley (above) for 2 nights with 2 of our closest friends.

I am on cloud9 at the moment!!! Must book a venue ASAP though- THEN I can start thinking about all the crafting goodness to come like the invites, bombonerie, flower arrangements........ toooo exciting!!!!

Have promised myself though to not become one of these!!!

spoils of the craft fair

Well. I have been waiting since June last year, and finally the craft, quilting and bead fair finally came around again!!

As you can see, I am now well stocked up on crafty things. I spoilt myself (as it's my birthday tomorrow) and bought myself a swarovski crystal bejeweller. It is very cool. Mr Honi declined my offer to "bejewel" his wallet though...

and I just HAD to buy these badges...toooo awesome!

ooooo.....I wanna house like this!!

One of my FAVE design blogs Design*Sponge has featured freelance script writer Wiz Wharton's home...and OMG I luuurve this furniture!!

I want a house full of funky artistic things. We've got a pretty good lot of furniture in our place, i guess it's just all a bit cluttered at the moment.

We have just been told we have to move though :( but I'm looking forward to setting up a new home and doing a bit of a clean out! We're looking to buy, and I saw this place online today and I simply love it's tackyness!!

I love the mirrored wall, soo seventies! Plus my fave bit is the heading for the property that says "Potential, Potential and more Potential"

Crazy Cat

hahaa before Mr Honi moved in he (and my 2 best friends) used to call me the "crazy cat lady".....this made me laugh a lot

Complete kindnes in the mail, and a return to blogging

Yesterday, I visited Ma and Pa and was very excited to find an intriguing package waiting for me. I ripped it open like a child at chrissie and was completely stoked to find the most wonderful little selection of goodies!!

The darling Kyla over at "Two peas in a pod" had sent me a little gift to "brighten my day" and did it ever. It was such a lovely, random, sweet gesture and I appreciated it sooo much. A million thankyous :)

Made me realise how much I have missed blogging and reading all the other wonderful blogs out there, with all of you kind hearted, thoughful bloggers :)

I have had a completely hectic month - here it is in a few words.....Hens Day, Bridesmaid, work presentation (talking in front of 1200 people)......Sydney>Adelaide>Sydney>Hunter Valley>Sydney>Brisbane>Sydney>Brisbane>Sydney>Melbourne>FINALLY HOME AGAIN!

Kyla, you have inspired me to get back into my blogging no matter how busy I am.
So to start me back into the swing, here is the progress of my quilt....
I am determined to have it finished before the end of Winter.
AND, I am super excited about the quilting and craft fair on next weekend, and Mr Honi has kindly agreed to join me....poor poppet will be frightfully bored, but at least I have someone to hold my shopping ;) He is a darling, who "gets me" and my crafting :)
