A week of great inspiration and getting stuff

I am having such a wonderful week getting surprises in the mail, finding things on the street and still getting some lovely things for Audrey for her birthday. Above is an image of the cake I attempted to make from the Very Hungary Catapillar by Eric Carle. I ate half of the leftovers on the way over to work! Here is my inspirational adventure:
I found this typewriter on the side of the road and it works! Am going to use it to type the nameplace cards for the wedding.

Which then leads onto this - I received my stamps in the mail designed and made by Dudley Redhead yesterday. Hoorah! and they look great - can't wait to get stamping and decorate the nameplace cards with these! (Thanks Dudley!).

Then I received this beautiful painting in the mail done by my sister Aunty Em of Glitter Glow Beading for Aud's birthday.

Then Aunty Milly (one of my best mates - no blog yet but she should start one!) bought over this beautiful book from Adelaide for another present for Audrey. It's a beautiful pop up book about Snow White, illustrated in a Naive Art style (which i love!).

Then I also received in the mail 2 Mixtape zines - woohoo - they look great - can't wait to sit down and read them.
Lastly please also check this out - it's fantastic. Made by White have designed a shop front based around Alice in Wonderland - they are very talented ladies and have a great blog too!
