Thank you thank-you thank-you!!!!!

So many little time....but here goes!!

Firstly, thank-you to everyone who voted for our Macchiato Shoulder Bag in Etsy's Best Eco Finds. Jade and I are over the moon to discover that our bag came in at number 10, which is just amazing!!!! You can read all about the winning item (an awesome recycled steel fire pit!!!) here if you're interested :).

I'm also very happy to add that the bag that was featured is now off to a new home, and will be taking up residence with a fellow blogger Rebekah from Don't Call Me Becky (who by the way makes truly sensational quilts - check out her blog to see what she's up to).

Secondly, a huge thank-you to Cam from Curly Pops blog and shop who also featured one of our coffee bags on the fantastic Cuteable website where she was recently the guest blogger. It was such a thrill just to see our name on the Cuteable site, but to be featured by such a lovely and talented crafter as Cam...well, it just makes me go all mushy. Thanks Cam, and thanks Lynsey (from Cuteable) also!!!

Thirdly, thank-you to Therese from Little Mary Moo blog and shop who featured the Macchiato Shoulder Bag on her blog. Therese has been very busy not only sewing up gorgeous bags and purses for her own shop (all created with gorgeous Australian made hand screen printed fabrics) but has also been teaching her own daughter, and even her friend's daughter, how to sew!! So great to see a whole new generation getting the crafty bug. Way to go Therese :D

Fourthly, another thank-you to Chrisy from Sophism Press blog and Art Decadence who has been featuring my Flickr pics on her sidebar for the last few days. Chrisy finds the most amazing things to showcase on her blog, and covers so many interesting subjects from art history, to poetry, to the meaning of art and beauty. Thank-you Chrisy, I am honored to be featured on your always interesting and beautiful blog.

Fifthly (is this a word? Sorry this is getting ridiculous I know...) Anastasia from Anastasia Drawing and Dreaming blog, and Percival Road Designs, has featured Jade's Creme Brulee Pochette on her gorgeous blog. I have ordered some of Anastasia's gift tags before and I can honestly say they are even more beautiful in real life than in the photos (and this is saying something as the photos are so darn pretty themselves!). Thank-you for featuring a Beckybean bag in your wishlist. We're super chuffed!!

OK, I hear you. Enough of the thank-yous already. How about an ON TIME Watcha Wearing Wednesday pic! Check it out. First time I've been on time in while. And not in my pyjamas. Woo hoo!

The temperature has actually dropped below 25 degrees Celsius today so I'm in a cardy (I know, I'm such a wuss when it comes to the cold). And my little birdy brooch from In My Backyard. The very first thing I ever bought off Etsy. Not a super exciting pic I know. But at least I'm not a slob today. And that makes me happy. Happy Wednesday everyone :)

& a sixthly thankyou for writing such an entertaining blog :)
Congrats on the number 10 - must not look at your etsy store... I love the new bags!

BTW would you have any of those felt hair doobie things you use to sell hanging around, would love to buy a couple - they are the ONLY things that stay in DD's hair.

Little Mary Moo said...

Huge congrats to you both for making it to number 10. (Not surprised though - I do adore that bag). I'm sure the bag will be very well loved by the new owner. That fire pit is amazing.

Thank you for the sweet shout out too. It is lovely to see all of your beautiful creations being shown around the blogging world. Those tags are so cute they remind me of when I was little flipping through the big books of patterns for hours trying to decide what I wanted Mum to make.

Another cardy lover here too. I hear you on feeling the cold.

Why aren't I surprised that you and Jade came in tenth? Because cream always rises to the top. Congratulations to you both - I'm thrilled to bits for you (shhh ... don't tell anyone, but I voted for you).

It is getting a bit chilly in Brizzy - time to get out the heavy artillery - THE CARDIE!

Mary Nanna said...

What a lot of lovely inspiring beautiful things in today's blog post. I really enjoyed looking at all of them, and their lovely photos.

Hey Harriet said...

Wow that's a whole lotta thankyous! Congrats to you and Jade on scoring 10th place in the Etsy's Best Eco Finds! That's awesome! I'm not at all sruprised though...well maybe just a bit surprised that you didn't get 1st place! Your bags are super. Well done beansters! :)
