25 April

today, in Australia and New Zealand, it is ANZAC day.

so we made some (a LOT) of anzac biscuits:
it is also my mum's birthday.
and because she shares her day with the ANZACs, she loves poppies. and so, i made her a dee*luxe doll with the PERFECT purple and red poppy fabric Clare sent me last week:

she has been wanting one of my dolls for awhile. i hope she likes it.

and in the spirit of ANZAC day, i wanted introduce you to some of my fave Aussie bloggers and friends:

Tania: a gorgeous mama of 3 stunning children, her blog is subtle and has a beautiful easy pace. so refreshing and inspiring!
Jodi has such a peaceful and nurturing space, i want to crawl up and hang out there. a genuine and generous lady.
Bec: this lady knows what's what with sewing pretty dresses. such a fun and talented lady. 
Rachel: another beautiful mama with a subtle, peaceful blog. i always enjoy visiting her space.
Allana: the sweetest lady, living in Tasmania, who warmly extended friendship to me when i first began blogging. 

very grateful for all those who have fought for our freedom.
~lest we forget~


  1. Oh Dee - I love how you did the doll's hair and the liberty skirt is gorgeous! Props to you for hand stitching the hem of the skirt too!!

  2. She's gorgeous! I remembered you saying that your ma would love that fabric when I posted it on my blog ~ that's why I popped it in for you. I'm glad you found a use for it!

  3. Love the doll and thanks for the blog links too I will enjoy looking through them

  4. Oh that doll is so sweet Dee! LOVE!! Looking forward to checking out those links too.

  5. lots of lovely links! thank you for sharing your blog friends - it's the equivalent of a party! We all get to meet new people and find out a little bit about their life and loves! Thank you.

  6. Beautiful post Dee. I thought you would probably do an anzac day post and that you could show us something awesome that you'd made for your mum. And thank you as you did. And I heart the hair and her eyes.

  7. feeling the love across the ditch ... and in such good company too!

    happy birthday dee's mum.
