it was a lovely day in Greendale...

the sun was shining, the birds were singing, but where was Postman Pat?

Ahh here she is... busy writing letters and making envelopes.
She got herself dressed in her posties uniform...

then went delivering her letters to all our neighbours.
I think in total about 14 people will have come home to odd little pictures and letters posted through their doors...still I'd say it's better than junk mail :-)

While she was doing this Benny was busy doing the button snake.
I made this about a year ago. It's a very simple idea; a button at each end of a length of ribbon and then shapes with a large button hole to thread and make into a snake.
Benny is really enjoying his new found buttoning skill and spends a lot of time each day at the moment taking the buttons on and off.
We're going to a 3rd Birthday this weekend so I'm hoping to find the time to make the birthday boy a snake too.


  1. Oh, I would just love to come over to your house and play with Rebe, she is so full of wonderful ideas and imagination! You've got a smart girl there, Laura!
    And I love the button snake- what a great idea! Hmmm, wonder where Rebe gets her creativity from. . .? :)

  2. You're welcome anytime! Wouldn't that just be so nice?! She is a smart little cookie and I find her so inspirational. Sometimes her levels of needing to create and play can be a little intense, but it is so wonderful. Thanks Melanie x
