BOTTLES AND BAGS ..


WHAT A BUSY TIME OF YEAR THIS IS..ALMOST LIKE GROUND HOG DAY FOR US..WE HAD A WEDING THIS TIME LAST YEAR AND COMING UP IN A FEW WEEKS ANOTHER SON STEPS OFF INTO MARRIED LIFE..

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE IT IS ALL SYSTEMS GO..I HAVE YET TO GET AN OUTFIT..SINCE I HARDLY GO ANYWHERE THAT DOESN’T REQUIRE MY BLUNDSTONE BOOTS YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW MUCH FUN I HAVE SHOPPING FOR CLOTHES… I LOVE SHOPPING FOR KITCHEN TOYS..COOKBOOKS..HARDWARE STORES REALLY GET ME EXCITED..NURSERIES..LOVE IT..CLOTHES SHOPPING..YETCH!! I REALLY DON’T LIKE IT..THE STORE SALES PEOPLE DRIVE ME BONKERS..NO OFFENCE BUT I THINK I KNOW I LOOK LIKE GARBAGE IN SOME THINGS AND REALLY DON’T LIKE BEING TOLD IT LOOKS GREAT…I KNOW I AM NOT ALONE HERE ..

ANYWHO..WHEN I DID MY BIG TRIP THE OTHER DAY I PICKED UP THESE LITTLE BOTTLES FROM MY FUTURE DAUGHTER -IN -LAW..IRONICALLY I GOT THEM FOR HER TO BEGIN WITH SHE PICKED THEM UP AND NOW THEY HAVE BOOMERANGED BACK!

THESE LITTLE BOTTLES ARE FOR GUESTS ON THE TABLES..AMBER WANTED ME TO MAKE HOME MADE JAMS (JELLIES) ..I SUGGESTED WE DO JAMS FOR THE GIRLS AND RED ONION MARMALADE FOR THE BOYS..SO I HAVE THE BOTTLES AND SOON WILL GET MY WITCHES POTS OUT AND START BREWING…

I WILL DO A MIXED BERRY JAM..IT’S ONE OF MY FAVES..

ALSO ON MY BIG TRIP I POPPED IN TO MY LITTLE SISTERS…I MADE SANTA SACKS FOR MY NIECE AND NEPHEW WHEN THEY WERE BORN AND  EACH YEAR I GET THEM BACK AND ADD SOMETHING THAT IS APPROPRIATE TO THEIR YEAR..

FOR EXAMPLE ONE YEAR MY NIECE WAS CRAZY FOR GINGERBREAD MEN LOVED THEM AS A SNACK..SO I FOUND A GINGERBREAD MAN AND SEWED IT ON THE SACK..THIS YEAR SHE IS CRAZY FOR DINOSAURS AND I FOUND A CUTE ONE WHEN HUBBY AND I WENT TO A MARKET IN BRISBANE..

I THINK THAT IT IS A GREAT REMINDER NOT ONLY TO THE KIDS WHEN THEY GROW UP BUT TO THE MUMS AND DADS..A REMINDER OF WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT AT THAT TIME IN THEIR LIFE..

  1. Sweet sack idea! I need a vacation just reading what you have planned. A friend made a quilt of her daughter’s old clothes over the years. The center of the quilt was all pink and yellow and gingham, the next section was plaid and red and white when she started school, then there’s a section of denim and rock t-shirts from her teen years and then college colors on the edges. Cool idea.

    • That’s a brilliant idea with the quilt..i lament that I was so busy when the kids were little that I didn’t have the time or the money to indulge and make these things for them….but at least I imparted instead a love of art ,music literature and creativity…so maybe they can whip me up one!

  2. If you will get this fabulous sacks, you need no other gift. They are wonderful!!! I agree with you. To shop for clothes can be pesky. Really. We rather shop clothes online, then you can try it at home without someone who opens the curtain of the fitting room 87 times when you are in with nothing than your underwear. (Once my mom was inside of such a thingy and said my dad should bring her a pant in a different size… she was waiting there for 87 hours, because the dad forgot her and the pants. He went outside, smoked a cigarette and visited a coffee shop on the other side of the street)
