One afternoon while the kids were down sleeping i got into a very craftie mood, so after a short time of thinking and putting together a small idea in my head, i came up with these iceblock stick coasters! Simply material and iceblock sticks. They're super as gifts!!
...and this is my new teapot! I was in a desperate need of a teapot, and so i went looking. I found this cute one for 40 shekles ($10) at one of the stores in town. I just Love it! And also featured beside my teapot is my newly painted lamp (which was a terrible red colour previously) (yes a cheap makeover) and my bargain tea chest (teapot is sitting on it) which i brought home and painted up! Because i spend so much time in the kitchen i SO enjoy the fun of making it beautiful and practical.
(and i LOVE re-purposing and cheap make-overs!!)My boys and the tea party! Spring Israeli wild flowers!
This week i felt a little sewie.. if that makes sense... so i put on my craft hat and began with a bit of material and the sewing machine...and within a few hours (yes it certainly was my first time) i had my very own handbag. (made from part of an old skirt i had bought at the Christchurch market 5 years ago.)
Although we now live in Israel and will be raising our kids here, I will NEVER let go of Cricket! and i'm determined that ALL my kiddies will know how to play it! When we were last in NZ we brought back with us a few cricket bats, wickets and balls. So now that Shalev is able to hold the bat and throw the ball, we've begun the training! hehe...
