Sydney Sand Storm

Hey guys, as many of you may have already heard, Australia's weather recently has been a bit out of the norm, and just to prove how crazy its actually been this is what Sydney looked like this morning! We woke up on MARS! hubby and i looked outside the bedroom window 5 in the morning and we couldn't even see our neighbors! it was completely red outside! apparently there hadn't been a case like this since the 40's! The red dust was apparently carried from the outback of NSW, due to strong winds traveling up to 100mph, pushed the dust along the state and up the Queensland!
The storm cleared up around mid afternoon, everything was covered in a film of dust! thank god is over now!

Market Day

Market days are always a fun and exciting experience for us and today was no exception! This week was much better than the other week we were at the markets, sale and company wise! we met so many new faces and had some great conversations with a few of the stall holders! 
Here are some images of our store this week.
As our day progressed, sales increased and so did the surprises! One of the other stall holders Bec, who also sell plushies came over and sent me one of her gorgeous dolls!!!! oh i LOVE it so MUCH!! its the most adorable doll i own now! you can find her toys here at her blog Blinking Flights and also make online purchases! 
When she gave me her doll, i suggested we should do a swap and she chose a coon she liked. 
I'm STILL excited about my new toy!! 
Check it out!

Here are some more pics of Blinking Flights market store!

Softies for Mirabel

while browsing Meet me at Mikes i came across this charity event 'Softies for Mirabel' hosted by the Mirabel Foundation. The Mirabel Foundation is an Australian group which helps children get back on their feet, children from broken families, who have lost their parents, and those who are struggling. The idea of 'Softies for Mirabel' is this: We try and get as many people as we can to make a soft toy and send them to Mikes Shop where they will be displayed in the window for a month and then the Mirabel Foundation reps pick them up and take them to the kids. Each soft toy with be allocated to a very special child, to keep them comfort and company. If you would like to join this incredible worthy cause, or want to find out more info about it, go to Meet me at Mikes blog, there you would find more in depth info.
