Getting ready to (tea) party....



I'm preparing for Little Eco's third birthday party next weekend. Last year I found myself buying disposable cups and plates at the last minute. This year i'm will be a disposable-free tea-party. I've been collecting second hand teeny glasses and cute little floral vintage plates. I started paying around $1 per cup and $2 per plate, but during a recent trip up the valley I discovered an opp shop where glasses are only 10c and plates 50c. I love country town opp shops!!! And I love even more that we'll be using these glasses and plates year after year.


And of course it wouldn't be a party without punch. I was  pretty happy when I found these two punch sets.


I also found this as-new vintage linen apron. I decided it was a perfect canvas for me to try thread sketching. I bought it to use as a gift...but i've decided to keep it for myself.


Here's todays outdoor photo. It's raining here at the moment and Little Eco headed off this morning in search of puddles with her Grandad. Around 30 mins later it started absolutely bucketing down. Daddy Eco went out to rescue them and found them sheltering under an eve... very wet, but very happy.

Enjoy your weekend. Head on over to Sophie's if you feel like more Flea Market Finds.
