Weekend Wonderland

The weekends have been nothing short of magic 'round here. The weather has been beautiful, company exceptional and treasures abundant.

Dave and I couch slouched on Friday night, watching Our Idiot Brother and drinking Bulmers (a little bit cider-y a little bit beer-y and not a lot great. Join the debate on instagram). But i'll be honest, any excuse to use my crocheted cider holder made by this saucy broad will not be passed up.










Some time was spent sewing and drinking hot chocolate like a nanna, dressing in Kmart threads, eating impromptu pizza with friends  and making terrariums to scatter about the house (but more on that later).


Was the sun shining where you are?

Also, it's a new month- so if you'd like to be a sponsor of The Beetle Shack or know someone that would, please head over here and lock it in. We've had a really positive response so far.

  3. Sounds awesome.. I donned some new Kmart threads myself..welcomed a new little nephew into the world, had a city afternight (afternoon/night) out with my hubby and 2 kiddlywinks and ate fresh flathead (caught by hubby today, which makes up for him spending the whole Sunday away), gorgeous weather we're having up here in brizzy at the moment, can't complain at all!:)
