What I like...

I'm always coming across new things I want to share with you all - books. products, bargains, homewares and just about everything really. I have been meaning to do this for a while, but I have just moved house...ugh moving is so exhausting! Don't want to be doing that again time soon.

I went to Big W (department store in Australia) last week and found the best Halloween wreath! I actually didn't know Halloween wreaths were a thing but I am loving their Day of the Dead wreath. My Instagram followers loved the look of it too. Retails for $25.00.

Nice change from all the pumpkin Halloween themed decorations that seem to saturate the shelves this time of year. I think Frida Kahlo would approve :)

Yarn Bombing and The Whimsical Tree

I recently donated a shopping bag full of knitting yarn to my local school. The school's art club requested the yarn so they could 'yarn bomb' one of their beautiful old trees.

The tree is now known as the Whimsical Tree. It's adorned with teapots, gems, buttons and crochet butterflies. The students have been very creative.

I have seen yarn bombs in different parts of Inner Western Sydney.  Telegraph poles wrapped in brightly coloured knitted yarn are always something pleasant to see.
