This Weeks Finds....

Phew! The party's over for another year.....16 kids - what was I thinking! Actually, it all went pretty smoothly as there was tons of food, well behaved children and a sunny (if cold) day. Next year I think it'll be a couple of kids for a sleepover.....

Here's what I found this week....

  1. Ha! In Wellington I saw those milk bottles for $10 each - I didn't buy them. I'm pretty sure we had that Snap game as kids and I live the second Crown Lynn photos.

  2. Wow you have found lots of fun stuff. The Crown Lynn blue crockery is AMAZING! The pattern reminds me of the work of an Aussie artist but I can't think who! Prolly come to me at 2am!
