The lovely Helen was a little naughty this week and before our Tuesday get together we were all informed that we were heading out somewhere for morning tea - no clues were given, no hints, just that we should be prepared for a little outing. Even in the car we were taking turns in guessing about our destination. Well it turns out we were being kidnapped for a Devonshire Tea at Devon Pixies Teahouse. It was such a delightful surprise - pretty tables, pink glasses, pink marshmellows and gorgeous friends.
Helen had made each of us a beautiful needle case using teapot material. You may remember last year for Helen's 70th we came up with a theme to celebrate her milestone. This theme was 'teapots' and the needle case was her way of saying Thank you to us and also gave us a special keepsake of the occasion.
Inside our gorgeous needle cases we found a tag with a beautiful button on it, a pair of scissors and an
unpicker.. There was even a pretty teapot button on the flap of the pocket..
How lucky are we.
To make our needle cases, Helen had to fussy cut some fabric...mmm words fail me...lol
love you just the way you are.. naughtiness and all, ya big old softie....xxxx
On the week end, hubby and myself went down to the Gold Coast, the weather was a bit overcast but that didn't bother me one bit. The water was a beautiful temperature and we went for a lovely walk along the beach. Our favourite spot is Nobby's Beach and it's usually busy but today we have lucked it and there were not to many brave souls around. A little further up was the flagged area and so that's where people congregated. After our walk we had some yummy battered hot chips (I can justify this as I had just done a walk - that's my theory anyway and I'm sticking to it)..
We love the beach and hope one day to be living a little closer to it, but for now we will just have to make do with popping down as often as we can..
