Hello Cute Little look like you need some Homemade Lemon Cordial...

I found these cute little bottles in the Op shop today, 50 cents each, I managed to get about 12 in my arms. JJ has been looking out for old looking bottles to make his Traditional Lemon Cordial and call it "Oscar's Lemon Cordial", with his own personally designed label by our amazing friend Leroy. Stay tuned for a taste!
A Squeeze of Lemon perhaps?

What a lovely little Chair

This has to be my favourite. This restored Eames style Chair I found in hard rubbish in our neighborhood, it stood out instantly with it sunflower plastic upholstry, torns and worn out, a very unloved chair waiting to be scooped up and revamped. I recovered this little treat with a unisex cotton fabric, sanded back the frame, gave it a quick polish and came up beautifully and basically cost me nothing. Oscar just loves it.
What a treasure!

It's nearly as good as the real thing...just not so messy

Firstly, this gorgeous cage was picked up at a 2nd hand market for $3 (Bargain!)..I sprayed it white to give it a vintage feel, I was pretty happy with how it turned out...a little bit of TLC goes a long way. I picked up my pretty red bird for $6 at Mozi in Hampton Street. They had 70% off all there Chrissie stock, to me it didn't look to Christmassy, so i think I'll hang it all year round.

Mmm...what to do with these?

Today my girlfriend gave me lots of beautiful old boxes which I now know were used at Schools for building purposes and to put rods through the middle of them and make things. They were hanging around her daughters childcare centre so she instantly thought of me..(she thinks I'm creative). So, I now have my thinking cap on as to what to do with many ideas!

The Beginning...

The beginning of(I'm not quite sure), but usually it comes together half way I'm just going with that for now and hope that I get something worth while out of it in the end!..
