I went for a run this afternoon while the husband took the kids to the pool for a swim. I love that time to myself (with my trusty companion, Rueben the dog) to reflect on the day or more importantly to just chill out. As I walked through the front gate on my return I noticed something on the front doorstep.......... I knew immediately what it was and was so excited. It was this beautiful birdhouse made by the lovely Tony who lives down the road. I have never met anyone that is able to recycle so much stuff, he throws out virtually nothing! We walk past his house on the way to school and the kids admire the 5 or so birdhouses in the trees in his front yard. He also has the most awesome letterbox. When we last saw him I told him how much the kids loved his creations and the rest is history..........thankyou Tony.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
