Coffee and Cockys

Whilst out and about for coffee with Cat a few weeks ago I found this gorgeous Hot pink tea towel by Bonnie and Neil. 

So cute in fact that unknown to me Cat had already bought herself one too.

I brought it home, washed it and ever since have been admiring it from afar.

I just couldn't bring myself to dry any dishes with it and couldn't cut into it either - so have made it into one ginormous 'Hello Cocky' cushion using some very groovy (I know...I have officially become old on soooo many levels) pink rippled velvet upholstery fabric that I've had stashed for a few years.

We definitely have major 'screen print envy' over these tea towels so watch this space.

.....all we need now is a little inspiration and a lot of wine.....

:: loving my latest Etsy purchase ::

Much excitement around these parts, with our Etsy shop being alive and kicking, oh yes (AND a purchase has already been made (thank you)).

Speaking of Etsy love, check out my latest purchase, from the fabulous Penny Candy:

It's a 2012 calendar teatowel, look at how great it is!:

Love, it, thanks so much Amy!  We've got some of Amy's fabulous mix-tape fabric from Spoonflower winging its way to Brisbane - can't wait to get sewing with it. 

We are so happy to have joined the Etsy gang at last, I've been a bit of an Etsy addict for a couple of years - there is just so much great stuff to find, and it's all handmade, woo hoooo.

So - go check out Penny Candy, then click on over to us, then click some more, 'cos it's a bit addictive. 

Happy nearly-weekend to you all.      xoxo cat

a taste of things to come

Certainly no one could accuse cat and I of being 'a tease' BUT we are finally launching our etsy store next week and will be adding our handiwork weekly.  

Here's a teeny tiny sampler of things to come.   

We are currently working on some awesome cushions, quirky pot mats 
and cute chair bags so watch this space.

Whatever happened to Barbie....she used to be such a nice girl

Well....doesn't this give a whole new meaning to Barbie...the classic 'good time girl'.

Apparently this is 'Pool Barbie'....without my glasses I could have sworn this was 'lap dance Barbie'.

A birthday present for our daughter, all with very good intentions.  

This is the position I found her in this morning once our son had finished with her.  

'What is she doing?' I ask.  'Mum, she is playing with her dog of course' my son replies.

Of course she is!!  (lucky she is not holding a cat!!)

What the hell happened to Barbie? that's what I want to know.

Happy weekend all xoxo vee
