Yee Haa look at these cute tees from Brunswick buddies 'Sunday Morning Designs'. Starting in sizes for those closer to toddling this time round (yes thats Charlie now!). In super fine cotton, made, designed and printed locally, just lovely.

One day a sweet girl came into our store and told us she was designing some stationary and would we be interested in seeing it...some time later she popped back in and in that time she had created 'Ask Alice'. Designed, printed, made in Melbourne which is quite an effort. We have just had a delivery from her in the past couple of weeks and if you've got some notes to jot or a memoir to scribe this is it. Beautiful fabric, hard covered books are just one of her off springs. Pop in to see other designs.

Country swap meet this weekend, and these were added to the family. I was working in the shop when an email came through quoting that there had been car purchases made, I was wondering how much more could possibly fit in the garage, and now I can happily try fit these in the toy box....also over flowing!

Happy weekends everyone.
