Op shop trawling and finding bargains

What was the most interesting thing you did today?

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
New Zealand – that’s why we came back!!! Exactly where? Not quite sure – maybe Otago Peninsula or maybe Coromandel or maybe Motueka …..

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
A desert island – somewhere with no other people and just the sound of the waves lapping on the shore with lovely clear warm blue waters to swim in

Strawberries in summer and pears in winter

What inspires you?
People coping with adversirty; people standing up for what they believe in; lots and lots of crafty/green mothers who I’m finding in blogland

Your favourite books?
Too, too many to list. Two books that are really inspiring me at the moment are Recycled Home by Mark and Sally Bailey and Off-grid by Nick Rosen.

Oh so many things!!!! Retro suitcases; aprons; embroidered linens; fabric; baskets; children's chairs – just to name a few

What makes you follow a blog?
Great pictures; interesting and innovative crafts, especially using recycled materials; sustainable/eco living; seeing what other families living the way that I dream off

What do you love most about where you currently live?
The country – my little family is much, much happier being here – we all have smiles, the space and cleanliness, the freedom the girls can have here, the people. The town – we can walk everywhere. The house – an awesome woodburner, space to get a veggie patch going

I'm now supposed to tag eight more people:

Lien (Lovely Living); Steph (Lovestitches); Becks (Different Choices); Gina (Clutterpunk); everyone else has been tagged already! If anyone's reading this who wants to play along then consider yourself tagged!
