Pom Poms and Plastic Cows make the best gift bags!

I recently stumbled across this picture that I've had stored on my desktop for a few years.

It's such a super simple idea for Christmas gift wrapping!

Time to raid the kids toy box and get your pom pom maker out....

Julia Stone's vintage frocks at Sew & Tell!

Yes! Brace yourself vintage fans...we have just had confirmation that much of Julia Stone's awesome collection of vintage gear will be for sale at Sew & Tell presents A Very Crafty Christmas! 

Here's what Miss Stone had to say about it. "At Sew & Tell I'm selling a handpicked selection of vintage dresses that I collected from my travels across the globe and that I've worn at a bunch of my shows. I'm thrilled to give them a new life and audience."

Julia would, of course, have loved to work the stall herself but she'll be in Sydney playing at Homebake that day, so some of her friends have stepped in to help her out. They'll be operating the stall for her.

Sew, fans of vintage frocks, clear your dairies and mark December 8 with big bold letters HIGH VOLTAGE FROCK N ROLL!

Here's a few pics to give you a taste of Julia's amazing style.

Rum Balls

For me (Gabe), Rum Balls are the taste of Christmas. I love them but I never have them at any other time of year. They are a special Christmas treat. This is my Mum's recipe...

8 Weetbix
1 tin condensed milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup mixed fruit
2 tablespoons of rum (or more if you want)

Crumble the Weetbix and mix all the other ingredients with it. Place in the fridge for about 1/2 an hour. Make into balls and roll in coconut. Keep in the fridge.

C if for Crafty Christmas.....

Gabe and I decided over the weekend (with a belly full of delicious food from Rock and Roll cafe in Mullumbimby) that we would love to blog about all things Christmas in the lead up to Sew and Tell presents A Very Crafty Christmas. Cute ideas, recipes, things to make.....

So here's my first idea to pretty up your Christmas lunch table. I'm pretty obsessed by edible flowers at the moment. Not only do they look divine, they also taste lovely. Freeze them in ice cubes and serve with the drink of your choice (punch or scotch). Yum yum!
