Just like Alice...

.... I fell down a rabbit hole yesterday, a pinterest shaped one.

I have been obsessively planning and pinning party ideas for my two smallest smalls - parties that are actually not happening till October and December!  But since I follow (toooooo) many blogs I keep seeing ideas pop up and it is the perfect spot to put all those ideas for future reference. 

So, while I know that they are not original ideas, the soon to be 5 year old is having a lego party (thanks to Donna Hay's most recent kids edition for including the most excellent lego blocks cake for me to copy!) and we are going with rainbows for the small girl because, well, have you seen those many layered cakes???!!!  To pretty for words.

It's also the perfect place for me to go troppo with my babushka obsession!

And get all inspired with other people's beautiful crochet!

Do you pin?  What are your most popular catergories?

I feel a bit blonde mentioning this, but I only worked out yesterday how to take a screen shot from my computer!!!  Did you know how to do this?  Mr Google was kind enough to send me simple instructions but basically hold down the 'Alt' key and the 'PrtScn' key (normally found up near the top left of your keyboard somewhere) then head on over to the paint function found in Accessories and paste your image in there.  You can now edit and save it like a normal image and use it obsessively in your blog 3 times in one post!  (see above!)


  1. *puts up hand and hangs head in shame* ... "I'm a pinterest addict" :)

  2. I love Pintrest!!I think Crochet ideas is one of my favorite things to pin, and anything that is made from chocolate! =D

  3. Loving your ideas for the parties, those themes sound amazing. Rainbow cakes are the best! Now, I just have to pluck up the courage to try and bake one! :o/
    I haven't dabbled in the pinterest thing yet... though I read lots about it and like what I see. I think I have too many distractions for now! xo

  4. I LOVE pinterest! (this is me -
    I don't think its too early to start getting ideas together for October and December parties - I don't even have kids yet and I see so many cool things on pinterest that I am already planning their parties hehe =)


Welcome poppets! I'd love to hear what you have to say so please dont go without saying it!
