I have moved the content of this blog over to my other blog, Imagine Lovely 
There is now a children's clothing company called Cheeky Little Monsters, so I want to stop using that name.
I will continue to make kids toys, dolls and clothes along with whole bunch of other stuff including my handmade wedding and the upcoming building of our strawbale house and baby number 3.

So come on over there stay in touch!

Time to say goodbye...

It's time for me to say goodbye to Cheeky Little Monsters. It's been swell :)
Actually, it's been a really amazing time. Discovering the world of craft blogging and being to inspired, so amazed by peoples creativity, by their generosity, by their honesty.
I've learned so much! grown so much. So thank lovely blog of mine...
But we've out grown each other. I barely have time for one blog let alone two, so I will concentrate on my adventures over at imagine lovely. So if you wanna come along for the ride, I'll see ya there!

Thank you to every one who has commented, shared and supported this journey. You rock!

Alpaca Wool Scarves

Brrrrrr.... let me tell you, it is COLD in Daylesford! Wowee!
It feels like it's going to snow any minute and I'm actually loving it! I'm loving the toasty fires, the yummy hearty winter food and I'm especially loving this super soft luxurious Alpaca wool. We are so lucky to have this amazing wool mill near by.

I made myself a scarf and so many people have asked about that I've made few for my shop. 

You can see more here :)
Stay warm chickens!

My Creative Space...

In my creative space today is this little birdie I stitched up for Charlies doll, Daisy. It's made from the most beautiful vintage wool I cut from a coat I got at the oppie the other day. It is the most glorious shade of blue. I put on some wool felt wings and stuffed it with the scrappy offcuts of alpaca wool I've been saving. I have grand plans for other wonderful goodies from this coat....hopefully my plans are within my ability, I'm not so sure!

Also in my creative space is my beautiful street... this is what I can see from my front verandah at the moment...

It is absolutely divine :) It's really Autumn here and I am loving it. Sitting out on the couch stitching my birdie and eating Tim Tams whilst sipping rooibos while Charlie naps.... heaven!

Everyone needs on of these for winter, so get in quick people!

Flea Market Finds

I've a had such fantastic week of fabulous finds this week. 
The suitcase pictured above was give to me on Mothers Day upon Adam's return from the Sunday Market. It also came with friends, a beautiful red one and a very old brown number.  The beautiful wool coat I got this morning from the Daylesford Market. I've been searching for so long for a plaid wool coat such as this, but they are always too big and heavy. This one is perfecto so I was very happy!

But not as happy as Adam was when he purchased this awesome 1930's light box for an absolute steal! It was difficult to photograph, but it's for eye testing and is set in the most beautiful dark wood box. It has an amazing adjustable aperture on the bottom right, with a light behind it. We are going to build it into our house plans somehow! 

During the week we went on a driving adventure and hit some great country oppies. We bought way too much to photograph, but I got this sweet shelf and all it's lovely contents. A selection of tins for the wedding, two lovely jugs and some french jars.

I am obsessed with this duck egg blue colour , especially when it's combined with red and I adore the circus vibe of this tin.

Duck egg blue again! I love the shape of the Bessemer jug and the pattern on the little Japanese jug is so lovely. At $1 and $1.50, who could say no?

Some great vintage kids books, which will be used for cards and tags and bunting.


My personal favourite is 'Honey without money' which has the most adorable illustrations. So sweet.

And this set of vintage memory cards, which I almost passed up, but I'm SO glad I didn't! I have all sorts of ideas of these little guys.

I also got an unused Polaroid camera, with a flash and film for just $15-! I'm so thrilled with this because I really want to be able to take some Polaroids at the wedding. All in all it's been a fantastic week of thrifting!! I hope yours was too ;)
