Wonderful Wednesday - About my Dad

Tomorrow is a special day for someone in my family...

It is my father's birthday. I have fond childhood memories of my father: encouraging me at netball games, his amazing drawings, grease ingrained hands and a faint smell of diesel...I've always admired my father's strength and his ability to strike up a conversation with anyone. Of course, I love heading back home and catching up once again, hence this week's inspiration are items that have something to do with my father... I wonder if you can make some links...

Truck by 'Coast and Outback Images'

A cute toy to enhance imaginative play! A handcrafted and sturdy truck that could carry a load and dump it, painted in bright red and yellow. A lovely gift to give a boy.

Hammer softies by 'Marjorie Handmade'

These hammers would be lovely items for a baby boy. I love the look of gingham and I also like the bonus little ribbon tags for little one to play with. When baby grows to be a toddler (or older) the hammer softie would be a great imaginative toy to 'fix' items around the house.

Vintage Car Magnets by 'Badge Bliss'

A great idea! Put some yesteryear on your fridge with these cute magnets. A lovely set for someone who loves historic items.

Labrador Dog Drawing by 'Scribbles + Colour'

This is adorable! This drawing captures the pleading and obedient look that Labrador dogs give. Such a detailed sketch on wood. I can't resist those eyes!

I hope that this provides you with some inspiration. Enjoy!


  1. The Labrador drawing is spot on. I know that look VERY well! Happy birthday to your Dad :)

    1. Thanks Marly! Dad has a Labrador that dotes on him (and vice versa). They use their eyes very well indeed :)
