Boys and Bargains!! :)

Ive been playing with Bo Bunny goodies to make the boys door signs for the bedrooms! They share 2 in one room 2 in another so these signs were just the right size to fit both names etc on - 12x4.5 inches. Backed onto thick chipboard and embellished with Roughin' It papers for Jake and Ethans and Paradise for Ben and Scotts. J & E love the fact theirs has a NO GIRLS sign on theirs and are delighting in telling me im not supposed to be in there! LOL
Ben and Scotts is a little more grown up with the Paradise papers and embellishments I used twine to hang them both to carry on the boy theme - didnt think they would really appreciate dotty ribbon!! LOL

I just took delivery of some fab Tesco bargains too, its worthwhile checking out the sales on the Direct site as these pedestal mats were reduced to £1.47 each!! The single patchwork bedding was £3.50 - i am going to make some cushion covers for our bed.

Its worthwhile calling in too to see what bargains they have - look at these fab little coats i got for Evie.... The white all in one was £5 and the pink coat was £4!! They were both £15 originally before the sale! BARGAINS!! :D


  1. Love those signs! My son would love something like that...hhmmmm (creative wheel is a turnin)

    Thanks so much for sharing!
