Today is the last day of our holidays together before Heath goes back to work. We had one thing left on our "to do" list. We always drive past this little antique shop and say we should pop in there one day. Today we did. And it's not little, it was huge inside. It's called Southern Antique Centre, 243 Princes Hwy, Kogarah NSW. The first thing we saw was this little guy. It just so happens that my beautiful Mumma had one of these and all of the grandkids would always love putting money in his hand and watch him swallow it. I reckon Mumma is sending me little signs to let me know she is watching me. Ahhh.. nice.

After the antique shop we stopped in at Carrs Park for a play, paddle pop and a paddle.

makes it even more fun..

we told her to wee in the water and no one will see...
she didn't think to squat, she stood instead!

I was checking out a friends blog this afternoon and found that she had made these cute little owls. I also had the recipe (pattern) from an old Notebook mag. I just had to make a few tonight cause they were just too cute. FREE PATTERN to download here. Patterns says to hand stitch all parts together, but due to my "need it now" problem, I machine sewed the whole thing. Hand stitching does look nice, but I am quite happy with my little fellas.
