Bags Drink Babysitter!!!!

Not really! I don't think a bag can drink a babysitter.
Maybe in a horror movie.

Just the other day I got to drink this yummy pink drink.

It was Pink Hot Chocolate.
In the Vintage Heart Swap hosted by Dolly my partner Missy sent me this delicious drink.


When is a bag not a bag???
When it is a notebook
The lovely Adla from Vintage Delights by Adla asked me to send her my postal address as she had a little something she wanted to send me.
It was a gorgeous little notebook bag. Way too pretty to write in.
I hung it on the mirror of the dressing table in my bedroom with one of my other little bags.
Such a sweet little bag with its pink and grey pattern.
Thank you so much Adla.


Today I looked after Lachlan my 5 year old grandson.

Being in Prep (his first year at school) he only goes to school for 4 days a week
for the month of February.
He loves to draw and play with Lego.

LOL I must admit I did wonder if I was seeing things when I read the title!
That pink drink looks amazing! I've heard of white hot chocolate (if you like white choc, Jarrah make a great white hot choc) but never heard of a pink one, how utterly perfect!

Tara said...


Love the notebook, what a great idea! Wonder how the pink drink tasted, and of course, it looked all the better in that beautiful cup and saucer!

Your grandson? Such a cutie and I love his name!

Enjoy your day!

Pink drink....very interesting and yummy looking!
That little purse notebook is Lovely!!
Your grandson looks like he's have a fine time at Grandma's house.
p.s. That is really something that you are now heading into the Fall season. I do hope to visit Australia someday. I've heard that it is a very beautiful place.

Hi, Alison,

It's so true what you said about getting the garden ready for a special ocassion and it doesn't bloom till a week after(or a week too early), it happens all the time. You lucky girl, you've been blessed. Wow! You are a grandmother, you are really blessed!
