Shadow Shot Sunday #45

Wow! I can't believe this is our 45th Shadow that's amazing...

I will keep it short this week, but will hopefully find 5mins to post again tomorrow as I have lots to share as its been a busy week

My shadow this week is of a little friend that has been visiting us for the past few weeks and is obsessed with our windows (much to Sax's delight) he isn't even scared of our Staffy Kosta who is normally laying around on the back deck he just hops over him to come tapping on our sliding door ;) I am not sure what type of bird he actually is although my father in-law said he was a pee wee, but if you know another name I'd love to know
Don't forget to check out all the other cool shadows over at Hey Harriets

Take care, Bel x

And the Winner is...

Just like Martha said...
Hi there, these are going to be great!! What about simply "HI" and "HELLO" and cute stuff like "PICK ME" and the latest saying "I HEART U" ....you could do a take on the whole 'blogging' 'sms' stuff and do words like "LOL" and "BFF" and "BFN"...just a few ideas I am sure whatever you come up with will be brilliant as usual!Lee x

Shadow Shot Sunday # 44

Hi Everyone,

Well it isnt official yet, but it sure feels like Spring has Sprung in our part of the world!!

The trees are starting to blosom, the days are getting warmer and the birds are busy building their nests getting ready for the arrival of their young.

This morning, my 3 boys and I decided to check out Witches Chase Cheese Factory for a spot of breaky, their new premises are very cool. I also like this little guy who is this weeks shadow shot.

Made from old iron he is certainly a individual character, Master L just couldnt stop trying to pat him and then commenting that he was a bit sharp and he needed a bath! :-)

For other cool shadow shots visit Hey Harriet.

Check out the post below from Bel and help her out with some ideas for keyboard "words".

Hope you all have a great weekend and that the weather is beautiful where you are too.

Help Needed... + Giveaway Details

Hi All
Well Em and I have been working on some new products to be showcased at the Racecourse Road Street Party on Sept 20th and I need some help :)

One of the things I am looking at creating are some keyboard key magnets and push pin sets in cute little metal gift tins, although I am stuck on what to write? I was thinking sets of 6 and I have about 15 keyboards to pull apart (so no shortage of letters for now) but the best I can come up with is 'I LOVE ?'

So I am asking for your help. Please leave a comment with your ideas here (up to 8 letters) and next Saturday I will select a winner by the random number generator and the lucky winner will receive either a magnet or push pin set (make sure you include your email address)

Stay tuned to watch some new items appear in our ETSY store too ;)

Take care, Bel x

Sunday Shadow Shot #43

Well I got up a little bit early this morning just to enjoy some peace and quiet, to listen to the noises of my boys sleeping and actually enjoy a cup of tea while it was still hot without a baby in my arms and a little man trying to see whats in my cup. But as always happens I turned on my computer and got side tracked... The 2 year is now awake and has gone in to wake up his dad but I am still going to attempt to get this post finished before the baby starts stirring to the morning noises ;)

This week our shadow shot is of our 2 oldest boys playing in the park, Em and I had a really lovely time this week taking the boys to a new park and letting them explore. Even though we still didn't really get a chance to have a proper chat (our husbands can't understand why even if we see each other during the day we can still spend an hour on the phone in the afternoon) between chasing little boys, explaining proper playground ettiquette, handing out snacks and settling the little ones it was still great watching the older boys interact and play nice (most of the time). To see more amazing shadows or the join in the fun go to HeyHarriets Blog!
I also had to share this one, they had such a great time...
Not forgetting the little ones, they too got to 'catch up' a few weeks ago. This isn't the best of pics but I promise we will take some more while they are still little and this time I will remember to take Xav out of his wrap (it's hard to believe Xavier is 8 weeks old already!)
Don't forget to check out the BrisStyle blog for all full list of shops participating in the ETSY EKKA Extravaganza! and also make sure you check out the latest giveaways from Elvenhair and SharlzndDollz
Take care and hope you are all having a lovely weekend, we are off to the bowling alley today (should provide some interesting entertainment)
