Life is Full of Wonderful Pieces...

Making up an exciting puzzle!

My Toby is one of the most interesting pieces in my life and I dearly love him..
And he pulls of wearing a Daisy Chain rather well :3

At the moment I am ripping through 'Home' and was in bliss when I saw this in Jackie's 'Happy 101' makes me so happy that I am inclined to print it out and pin it up some where in the house as a reminder, if any-thing, that it would be rather fun to go see 'Tangled' in our PJ's!

And lastly, not a very god photo, but still cute...

She was not impressed.

I want this in my house...

I urge every-one I know to buy this for me as either a late Christmas present or a very
early Birthday gift; is it not the most wonderful and creative way to re-use old packing cases? Much better than staking them all length ways! I am trying to find bookcases for the house since we seem to be short all of a sudden... When I became all googly eyed over this lovely item, my loyal husband reminded me that we can not afford the price. Boo ;op

You will be in my dreams lovely item!

Tiny Houses

I found my-self entranced by these Tiny Houses on wheels, being from Australia and needing a larger abode I had not seen any of them until recently when looking into some-thing for my parents; now that my mother has retired. They complain about the house they are in, that it is too large and hard to keep clean by them-selves (in fact they have a cleaner come in fort-nightly due to my fathers illness) and the fact that their neighbours, who are younger than them thus still working, keep them awake Friday - Sunday doing work from home in the garage. I have experienced what my mother refers to, it has been going on since I was a small child.
It is just too much now.

Now my brother and I are all grown up, I have a husband and a child...
So of course we all moved into a giant house together ;op
We have been given the option of buying the property once our lease is up and conveniently the house has a decent sized backyard, the house being on the fore front of the property :o) And it has us thinking, maybe we should keep up this facades of being grown up and build our parents a small cottage to match our massive one so we are only a foot path away and they can sleep soundly on the week ends...?

I found Tumbleweed: A Small House Company while blogging and to my utter joy found the house above (with plans below) that looks, in my mind, just like Madame's from Babar! Though it is absolutely gorgeous I worry that it would not work quite right where we would be putting our parents theoretical abode ;_; But still lovely!

Then I saw this little dream. It works for the area, the placement of the old footpath that the Historical Society people probably wouldn't let us touch even if we wanted to and I think my mother would have (very happy) kittens. ^_^

Have a lovely day/evening every-one!

The In in Shinobu is the In in Ninja!

Weary - woke up around 9:30 from a nightmare, my brain started buzzing and I was unable to get in an extra hour. Dropped off a friend that had stayed over at her Uni and went home via Officeworks where I bought envelopes, cute sticky tape, an A3 sketch pad, a drawing book, bubble wrap and clear push pins! :3
