neighbourly


Recently we had new neighbours move into the house opposite ours. Previously rented by students thankfully it was sold and a lovely couple moved in. They spent some time renovating the house and then had a party! We were kindly invited though I let my husband babysit and I went over for some Pimm's. Obviously I took a gift, a monogrammed tea towel - really everyone should have one - and a little pinchy oven glove (that I must have forgotton to take a picture of). 


'G' enjoys baking so I thought he would appreciate the gifts! Having already been in the house and seen glimpses before the party I knew they have modern, sophisticated taste and I thought cool graphic prints would look good. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and so glad to have such a sweet and fun couple living on my street!



Just to let you know the Fat Quarter Shop currently has a great special offer this week of 25% off all Moda fabrics, make sure you enter the code MODA at checkout.


Have a great weekend!

  7. Wow- so much better than a plant or casserole. I've got new neighbours due any week now. I'm afraid they'll get a cake at best!

  10. It makes a big difference having neighbors you like, doesn't it? I really should have made some cute towels like that when my neighbors moved in...

  12. Great gift! And yes, I made that discovery on the FQS website! Dangerous business 'window shopping' on that site! Luckily the NZ dollar is high against the US$ at the moment!
