With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I’ve been wracking my (cheapbastard) brain for a final sweet n’ simple prezzie to make for the hubs…cheers to Mr. Internet for showing me this so I could create this:
a kissin’ couple clothespin that’s the mirror image of us!
it’s a cinch to make your own in minutes with stuff you already have on hand…
Huzzah! The new Ikea brochure has arrived! Packed full of funky furnishings we don’t need but will hopefully find in the As-is section when we next pop in to waste a day browsing. The clever Ikea flyer designers included a delightful Tipp:

We’ve been on the look-out for a play kitchen for our pots & pans banging girlie – a fabulous first birthday present, right?

How absolutely fabulous is this?
