Friday I'm in Love... 5 things

After reading Hey Harriet's blog this week, I starting thinking what 5 things make me happy.
1. My family and friends. If I didn't have them around to support me I don't know where I'd be right now. To everyone that hasn't seen me much lately, I apologise - I will be available soon !! And my husband is incredible - he puts up with my weekend marketeering, and never complains when I'm up till midnight sewing (though he really should).
2. BrisStyle makes me happy. I've been with the Brisbane craft group for almost a year now, and am very proud to be amongst such talented folk. We even have a website now, www.bris-style.com
3. Buttons. I confess - I have a button fetish. I love collecting the old vintage sort, and sifting through them like Amelie. It's a shame you can't get this same experience when buying them online, but they still look cute when they turn up. I also love wearing button earrings from Helen's shop Ruby 2 GoGo, and get the funniest comments (how on earth do you sew buttons on your ears...?). Buttons and sewing crazy little people is one of those things that keeps me happy all hours of the night.
4. Sneakers. Yes I'm a tomboy through and through. I'm not a high heels lass, no. You'd find me wearing my converse sneakers, jeans and arm warmers any day. Especially this Winter, how can anyone wear a dress right now?

5. Chocolate. I think that's pretty universal really. But I've just discovered the really nice 'organic' style chocolate. Unfortunately so has my husband...
Before I go, please head over to Bettsy Kingston's blog and enter her gorgeous fabric giveaway. Ends very very soon so get cracking. And don't forget to come to the Young Designer's Market at Southbank this Sunday 2 August. Wicked Child Designs will be making a first-time ever appearance !

They're lovely happy things. I particularly love your buttons. I too have a fetish...

I can relate to those five things Teneale, especially the buttons and chocolate. Best of luck at the YDM!

I love your list Teneale! I totally live in jeans and sneakers also, and eat far too much chocolate. Oh you've just reminded me about the secret choc stash I have in my cupboard! Yay! I can also relate to how imporant friends and family are. And BrisStyle rocks too! As for buttons, as cute as they are, I'd have no idea what to do with them. I'm not very clever and crafty... :)
