99 Posts, Sunshine, lollipops and Holidays on the Hill

One more post and I've hit the hundred mark, who would've thought you could publish one hundred posts about tea, brooches, general nonsense and a bit more crap? On the weekend I found out that I'm pretty crappy at squash and driving a manual car ... I am however good at making brooches and regularly blogging. I shall put that on my resume. And continue blogging and brooch making ...

So the winner of the 'Giants Plate' heart is ... Darjeeling Dreams ! ever so pretty.

This week it's a birdie ... to win just leave me a comment on this post

WIN me ...


Next week I am off to the Far North to see my favorite person, my Poppy. He's the coolest old dude I know. He's smart, he's a skeptic, he's lived through a war in a POW camp, he likes tractors and wine with dinner, and he taught me 'pull my finger' at the age of 5. He is the most wonderful, wonderful person I know.

Here are some Finnish inspired Etsy finds ... the pull my finger master hails from Finland

Herring ... pickled herring yum from Syko ...

Elk in the woods, from Karuski ...

Finnish bird out my window ... from Finnfactor ...

Welcome to Finland! I hope the weather gets warmer until you arrive, it's been darn cold lately! Thanks for featuring my pillow!

Oh hey, how cool to find Karuski's elk on Aussie blog, thanks for the feature! I just checked your brooches and already have a favorite: a white wolf.

I'm about to spend the midsummer (this weekend) by a lake in Eastern Finland. I wish you a good trip to North!

cute birdie brooch :)
I'm off to visit my grandad this weekend too - no wine or fart jokes for him, but he did do a pretty good job at changing my napppies (a long time ago) and also taught me how to file metal (not that long ago)
Enjoy your trip!

oh I adore this brooch...
and it would look so nice on the other side of my "crossly" brooch...
I get comments all the time on how gorgeous it is...

I'm really bad at squash too and I'm not even good at making brooches alas. I rock at wearing them if that counts for a positive?
