Don't know if I atually want to see this doc or not......... *insert horrified scream here*

If you know me, you will have been ear bashed... listening to me ranting over eating local/organic and not using personal products that contain petrochemicals etc, so on and so forth, blah blah blah.
But what about all the plastic in our lives..... what about electricity and running water and plasma screens? And cars!
How far do you go and what is the price that you will pay either way? This looks like a great doc!

Today's math lesson

x ( a + b ) = GIANTmess

x = a full container of Johnson's baby power
a = toddler in bedroom for nap time
b =  uncanny climbing ability

Please note that the amount of mess is proportionate to the creative ability of the toddler and the amount of fluids remaining in their drinking receptacle.

Mother's happiness is said to be inversly related to such an incident.

Oh, the humanity!

Oh, The Temptation from Steve V on Vimeo.

I love this video - kind of reminds me of myself when there is cake.....

In other news, I managed to pass my driver's license test today.  Watch out folks!

Bitty booties

Couldn't decide which photo to use - flash or no flash?

I made these booties for my niece using this pattern from Heather Bailey's website. I made them out of thick polar fleece instead of felt which turns out quite well if I don't say so myself. I hope my SIL likes them.....

Op shop find

I have had a lot of luck op shopping lately. Mostly clothes for Moo which haven't really been blog worthy. A pair of brand new with tags Thai fisher pants for moi. Hurra!

However, this is my pièce de résistance and I just had to share.

I found something very similar here which leads me to believe that it is possibly circa 1940-ish. I wonder how it ended up in the op shop? Somebody lovingly kept it for all these years.... it's in such good condition. *sigh*

Now all I need is a sweet little baby to wear it........
