A Party, Decor and Christmas

Ok I've been slack since my last post, ok well not really everything has been going out of control with so much on family, shop, my birthday well we wont go there with that one...etc.....ok I know I shouldn't be on facebook playing farmville, fishville ok, ok and cafeworld when I should be doing a quick post I said slack!!!!
So now I though I'd share my Maddi's 9th birthday with you that was in October, which has also lead me to have these Vintage Craft Work Parties at my shop now I have alot more room, will let you all know when it up and going....just getting the craft workshop area stocked with all the fine now to let you into the world of Maddi's Day!
This a collage Maddi created herself a week before her special day to sit on the craft table, I gave her all that she needed to create her master piece, when Maddi finish and came to show me I could not believe what she had created, and her sister Sta had created one too, but in blues and greens, but I must let you know I did glitter the letters before they started.
So this is the morning of the party, all dressed ready for fun to be had,

all the flower millinery hats where used as the party hat.

teacup trio candle lite ready for Maddi's guest's to arrive, oops don't for get the old style music mummy....yes Maddi!!!! no I haven't brain washed my girls I

one of my favorite hats above, I just love the colourway and the Lilly-of-the-valley

Maddi opening her gifts, the girls look so beautiful, they all where asked to wear of course blue, pink, green, white or floral.

Millinery hats look so cute on them, and they loved wearing them, didn't take them off for the whole party.....hum, hum.....ohhhh so sweet!!!

All dressed for the craft room

So what girl wouldn't want to come and play here, I took this while opening gifts, soooo many different things for them to create there master piece, from vintage wallpaper, to music paper, buttons, millinery flowers, feathers, lace, buckles, glitter...etc

So my thought was pink, green, blue noodle boxes for them to decorate, so when there all finished and all dry, this then becomes the lollies I also had set up a little lollies shop for them to choose what they want and me being shop lady filled their decorated noodle boxes full of lollies.

Girls having creative fun, I also used vintage bowls, cake stands, plates silver ware jugs...etc to put all the supplies in. let me just say glitter everywhere and I'm still cleaning it from places what can I say to see the smile and the fun they all had makes me happy

Ohhhhhh isn't Maddi just having the craft time of her life

while the noodle boxes, oops sorry...vintage noodle boxes now are drying time for tea, triangle sandwiches little hot dogs, little cakes, teapot full of cordial.....and all talking like they have plums(posh talk) in there mouths, I could not believe how much they fell into character and played the part of little ladies, hee, hee, ha, ha one of them said to me while pouring a cup of cordial in her teacup...You can call me Lotta-Vagina.....I was floored and nearly dropped the teapot and the video recorder and not to mention laugh as I was trying to film at the same

A group shot of the fun they all had, from left to right, Sta, Maddy, My Maddi, Alecia, Courtney

I'm so glad you all had fun girls, And I must say they are still talking about Maddi's birthday today, and mothers at the school have been asking me about the party, which has lead me to start the Vintage Craft Work Shop Parties at my shop.

Now below some beautiful washing up to do!!! just had to take a photo at something so dirty after dinner, that looks so beautiful!!!

A beautiful rose box I came across at a vintage shop, hummm a must have...filled with my beautifully dyed curtains for my shop....

Hello Sweetheart,
Thank you for stoping by with your sweet cooments on my village.I think I can help you.I use all brands of village houses and pieces.,but the main ones i do use the most are from Lemax.They are very pretty and are the cheapest to buy.They have all kinds of villages. Although they prefur to ship in the USA,they do ship all over.unless they changed .Here is the addy
This is the shop I use.The best way is to but thoughout the yr to avoild the Christmas rush.It took me over 20 yrs to get the pieces I have.It just depends on what kind and size village you want.
