Dear Lola,

So just what does mama get up to after I snuggle you to death, read a billion books, sing a bunch of songs, & then lay your little angel head down for a midday nap. 

Well here is a sneak peek from the other day...

We picked this up from our local Salvos store for $5, and although I love the natural wood look, I thought I would like to get a little more creative with this one.

Enter these cool test tube paints from Bunnings. You were a very willing, little helper, & picked the reddish colour suitably titled  'energetic'.

To my surprise & delight, there was no need for a paintbrush as there is a built in applicator, (as clearly stated on the front of the packet!)

In the end, I did decide to keep some of that nice, natural wood after all. Now to think of all the treasures I can hide in those drawers, safely tucked away from prying hands. Well that's my hope anyway.

And with freshly made spinach & cheese scones still warm and ready to be eaten when you awoke, I felt like quite the over achiever! Anyway, better enjoy it sweet pea, because tomorrow may see me on the couch with the telly on, just as yesterday did! 

Your mama

  1. Oooh! Pretty! You are such a handy girl. My creativity is limited to Ikea flat packs I'm afraid! Lola is lucky to have a creative mama like you :)
