felt ball garland


Colourful, sweet & so easy!

All you need is 2 cm sized felt balls in allsorted colours, a needle (which is nice and fat to allow enough rooms for the thread) & some thread (any colour you choose).
To make a 1.5 metre garland you need about 30 balls.

Pictures & how to from here

PS: Its 10 DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! EEK! The excitement!!

spoilty


I got VERY spoilt by my husband this past weekend. Dinner date at my most favourite restaurant Sat night & treated to a homemade brekki on Sunday. He filled the house with balloons & white Daisey's (my fav) and there were hearts everywhere, even the fruit was cut in heart shapes! Such a gorgeous man!

The silver angel heart necklace has always been on my wish list. Hubby surprised me with it ordering it from CPT. LOVE it & love everything that angel-heart.co.za stand for. They have a whole range of necklaces & bracelets to choose from, all with their own special meanings. They also contribute 10% of their profits to SA charities. Click here for more info.

happy anniversary to us

On Sunday my hubby & I celebrate our first year anniversary. On the 11 December last year I said "I do" to the man of my dreams, my soulmate & best friend, the man I have grown up with, shared so many experiences with, loved, laughed & cried with. Happy anniversary my bear. I love you more every single day!

Thought I would share with you some pics of our special day





Not sure what my hubby has planned for our day ... Its all a secret. How exciting! Can't wait to find out what he has been sneakily planning for the last few weeks :) 

Happy weekend all!*
