OK, so I haven't forgotten the giveaway, and will get to that soon, I promise. Soon. Trying to play catchup today and its so not fun, and I have a headache. And I'm not winning the game....
I have done all of my Christmas Shopping - one has to be organised when the shops are so far away, and I have to say that I adore mail order and ebay for this sort of thing - avoiding large masses of people and queues is always a good thing in my book. Though it is fun to touch and feel and see things in the shops....
So, here comes the bit where I need to make a decision and a choice. The biggest girl has written a letter to Santa (we don't normally, but she wanted something to do, and a little writing practise never goes astray!) and she wants a tea set. Which is so NOT in amongst the gifts I have for her...
So Santa is going to write back to her about the tea set (with an apology and some story as to why there isn't one under the tree) ...and seeing as its her birthday at the end of January, I have been shopping (online of course!) for a tea set.
Do I go for the red spots (Adorable)
Or the pretty flowers (sigh, oh so CUTE!)
Or the plain red, which is about $25 cheaper (none of these are what I call cheap, but are tin or enamel, and I think could be something to look after and keep for HER children!) and doesn't have a tray, but does have napkins and cutlery, and looks more vintagey...but isn't as gorgeous as either one above.
I just happen to have some gorgeous floral frilly aprons put away for little girl gifts, one of which I will put with which ever one of these WE choose. That should please her girly little heart!
So, my friends, which one should I choose? Should I save some $$ and go with the last one....or hang it all and go for one of the patterned ones (both being the same price!) Oh, but which one?? the decisions!!! Please help!
I await your choices with bated breath (truly, with bated breath at the moment because some reason I have just caught a whiff of our septic tank....or else a truck load of farting cows has gone past - I really hope its the latter....!)
And an internet goodness post coming soon, I'm seen some wonderful things bouncing around the net lately! So inspiring!
