The House of Metti, 1970 visit by Bobo the Clown video and my as yet unidentified Metti Doll as well as my savings tip, see how I only spent $63.00 on hair care products that totalled $270.00. I love a bargain.
For all the Metti doll and toy collectors, there is a real treat towards the bottom of this post. A black and white video from 1970 of Bobo the Clown visiting The House of Metti. First up, I have this sweet all original ...

From 1935 comes this vintage  #Australian  children's book, a new spin on a much loved fairy tale with Goldilocks and some Koala Bears.
I've waited a long time to own this book... Promoting Australian tourism isn't a new concept, have a look at this gorgeous vintage book that was produced in 1935 with a spin on a much loved children's story. ...

I'm a happy camper...Do you have a fairy door, elf door or fairy house in your garden? 
The elf and fairies have finally arrived. Tree Elf House I'm so pleased with how this rustic elf door turned out, all I used to make the door was a picture frame and icy pole sticks. Added a couple of bells from ...

#Freshway  Supplies. #Oats  Cleaning, Kitchen Products.
I'm so pleased with this lot from Freshway Supplies, the 45 M Roll of Dura Clean Wipes will last me for ages. The pastry brush is adorable and all the other items are fantastic, it's nice to have a whole lot of products from the one company.  Love the mop and the dispenser bottle that goes with it. Funny story about the mop, I haven't used it yet because I don't want to get it dirty, I've thrown my old one out and now I'm washing all the floors down on my hands and knees. I know I have to break it in sometime lol!  
I didn't know they had so many products until I checked them out.
They're my new favourite cleaning and kitchen buddies.
