With apologies to Rogers and Hammerstein

I'm just a girl who cain't say no
I'm in a terrible fix
I always say "come on, let's go!"
Jist when I orta say nix...

Now where do we add the lyric about visiting the Amitie sale?

How could I resist; I just had to pop in (do you think you can say you were just popping in, if the visit involved a map of Greater Melbourne and four trains?). I had a lovely time. Amitie is the proverbial candy store and I had the pleasure of meeting the delightful Jenny, Gina and Lululollylegs. I can't wait to visit again.

Anyway, pictured is just a selection from the loot (being as the remainder is destined for secret crafty stuff). Can you guess which one 3 year-old Argy chose?


  1. I had a little spree at the sale too!

  2. A little birdie told me you were there!!!!!!

    glad you like the store! Lollyshop indeed!

  3. I don't blame you - if I lived in Melbourne I'd practically live at Amitie I think!

  4. Fantastic to put such a lovely face to the name, Miss Hoppo Bumpo! I am very impressed and pleased that you made such a long journey, I look forward to seeing some of your creations!

  5. Four trains and a map?? You mean I'm not the only nut who will do that for fabric?? :p

  6. well worth the visit it seems

  7. You sound so excited ! :)

    I can't believe the effort you made to get there - next time let me know and the boys can have a playdate while you shop :p


Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing what people have to say. Leave a comment if you like.
