  1. Racing our home made billy carts down the hills near our home, I look at those hills now and wonder how mum ever let us haha!

  2. I like that Lovestar have created a watermelon version of their beloved heart vase. I find it funny how these things gain so much momentum... Like flamingos even cacti... But I'm quite partial to the pink grapefruit... I've got a pineapple & pink grapefruit DIY designs-thingy I've been meaning to do and get up on the blog for few weeks now... Need to get my butt into gear I think, lol.

  3. Oh sounds like something we could share in a newsletter :)

  4. Thanks for the vote of confidence Hun... Let's see how it turns out! Hahaha. x

  5. Playing home or school. I was a teacher.

  6. Dressing up in mum's old clothes. I think I spent half my childhood in her old taffeta, puffy sleeve bridesmaid dress!

  7. Handball. I was so good at it but I wouldn't have a clue how to play now!

  8. I like strawberries and bananas together. So weird but so good. I'm loving all the watermelon stuff sick, especially the vases. "swoon"

  9. To eat? ooh I have both.. I am off to try!! :)

  10. Yes... to eat! And strawberry and banana juice is the BEST!

  11. I used to love playing horses! My sister and friends would all pretend we were wild horses! How gorgeous! I hope my baby girl does this too!

  12. Kiss chasey with the boys next door

  13. A trip down memory lane is always exciting.
    MARBLES was our favourite game.
    Flicking the shooter across the line then picking up the beautifully coloured marbles and taking them anywhere we went. We played for keeps so I still have a bag full for nostalgic purposes.

  14. "Isn't she pretty?". Make the ugliest face possible and try to make my twin sister laugh. Then it was her turn.

  15. I always loved playing hide and seek with my brothers, we had a huge yard and so many hiding spots to choose from, however our beloved pooch would often give it away as she'd follow us when we were trying to hide :)

  16. My favourite games as a child was elastics. Singing songs, jumping around being creative and active. I can't wait to play with my daughters.

  17. We used to wrap my cousin head to toe in towels and then he became 'Robie' the robot from outer space. He was very mysterious and intriguing!


Leave me a love note why don't you.. it makes me feel oh so spesh ...
