Its been a big week for me personally and for Bec and I -I am not really sure where to start.... Monday was a big week for my oldest son, when he was awarded student of the week in his prep class. We had been given the word on sly by his teacher so we all gathered at his school Monday afternoon and couldn't have been prouder when he was called up on stage at assembly! And  being the good mum that I am I took a very blurry photo for the album and we headed to a local cafe and there was milkshakes all round.

Then on Tuesday my husband had a mini milestone in his career...He has been working with racehorses for a long time- mainly as an assitant trainer, in February this year he made the decision to go out on his own and is now a fully licenced trainer. On Tuesday after many months of preparation he took his first horse to the Woodonga races and Quick Key ran a very respectable third. Bec and I are hoping he may name a horse ' Vintage Girl' in the future and we may become vintage merchants slash professional punters.

On Wednesday I had a birthday and was spoiled by my family with flowers and a course at Harvest textiles learning how to design and screen print my own fabric.And of course those who know me won't be surprised to hear that I also gifted myself with a little retail therapy.

Then today Bec and I headed to the Ashburton scout hall to the Shabby Vintage Junk fair, we picked up some great things for our little stall and lots of inspiration.Which led me this evening to a little bit of craftiness- at the moment we are working on a range of cushions made from Vintage blankets,and it took me ages I whipped the little cross cushion below. Its made from a recycled wool blanket and even a recyled feather cushion insert found on our travels today.

this little cushion is headed for the vintage shed tomorrow

Pretty birthday flowers.

My little student of the week- definite re shoot in order I think

O.K this has turned into a marathon post- I had better run, remember to tell all your friends about our competition and pray that the follow button doesn't go wandering again!
