bed time shenanigans

So the boys share a room which usually works really well.  Harvey always goes to bed at 730 with Charlie trailing behind him by at least half an hour. Tonight Harv decided he'd secretly wait up, he was in a very happy mood and did not want to go to sleep without his big brother.  By 930 the chatting and giggling got louder and louder and the threats of the hall light being turned off went through one ear and out the other. When I decided to stomp up the hall and growl at them both I discovered this........

I had to hide the smirk on my somewhat cranky face and go grab the camera. 

I shared a room as a kid and mostly loved it, we hummed songs and played guessing games, played music quietly and did all we could to not go to sleep but we were never THIS crafty......

What do your kids do to fight the sleep?

Here's to two tired and cranky boys tomorrow!

Flea Market Finds

Op shopping has been really slow once again, it's not that I haven't been trying but just not finding anything of much interest. I'm sure my luck will turn soon.

This is an oldie but my absolute favourite colour, Vinnies $5

Some pretty peachy, pink plates for $1 each.

My mum found these amazing buttons from the 30-40's, they are glass beads and wire. I'm thinking of making some yoyo's and putting them on a top for Rosa. They would also make lovely ear rings.

She also found some cute vintage fabric, I really must start using some of this childish fabric, I've got quite a stash now.

Have you checked out Sophie's yet? there are lots of great finds over there.
