80 dresses ready to go

Another 4 dresses arrived yesterday which takes the total now to 80 dresses!!

The first was from the lovely Ceri who has a gorgeous blog called Inspired by Felix. A lovely dress in browns and oranges.

With pretty orange ties and beads. Ceri like me was inspired to use beads by the dresses from Leanne at Leanne Woods Designs. Its such a great idea.

and three dresses from the lovely Kayomi who has a lovely folksy shop here selling goregous bags and purses. The first dress is made from a pretty spotty fabric with gorgeous handmade bias binding and ties.

and a very pretty butterfly detail.

I love the fabric on the second dress with its leaves, birds and seed heads.

This one has spotty ties and is finished off with a cute little bow and button detail.

The third is a very pretty delicate blue floral fabric with co-ordinating spotty blue binding and and ties

  and another pretty butterfly.

Gorgeous! Thanks ladies.

Talking of butterflies....we discovered a gorgeous Butterfly House called The Butterfly Effect last week not far from where we live. Izzy had an inset day so we went to have a look round. It was lovely. Very quiet and full of pretty butterflies.

They give you a sheet so you can spot and identify what you see.

We saw lots!

This is the giant Atlas moth!

These are all cocoons waiting to be hatched

They even had terrapins too which we were allowed to feed.

Izzy has now decided to have her birthday party here. You are only allowed small groups so as there will be a maximum of about 9 children (all girls) I have decided to make some party bags myself this year with some gorgeous fabric I have just found on the Fabric Addict website.

So should I do little bags with handles or a little drawstring bag? Can't quite decide? What do you think?


  1. The butterfly house looks great, and to have a birthday party there is a fab idea. I would go with drawstring to stop the bits and bobs falling out.

  2. Can't believe you're at 80 already! Amazing! Well done! x

  3. oooh!

    A butterfly party sounds lovely !
