REMEMBER Fimo? Remember the kitsch Aussie wildflower and gumnut necklaces made from the stuff? They were an '80s and '90s thing and I'll bet there are still a handful of you who have one tucked away. Get it out again. They're fun. I scored this flannel flower necklace for $4 at an op shop a couple of weekends ago and the great thing about it is the long neck cord. I've been wearing it long, with a purple singlet top and floral skirt. It is fun. Like wearing the supermarket toy aisle beads when you were little. That kind of fun.

I haven't added much to my Pinterest boards this past month but what I have added have been about flashbacks and fun.

THINGS TO MAKE AND DO: Leslie’s dreamcatcher, as seen on A Creative Mint.
THINGS TO COOK AND EAT: Carolina’s breakfasts, as seen on Gatsby & Me. Pity they’re not closer to home. Good thing because I might walk off with the plate.
THINGS TO DROP DOUGH ON: They look easy to wear, cute and quirky. How great is EleyKishimoto’s latest collection?

  1. That is a particularly lovely example! Much nicer than any that I remember. Funnily enough I was just finishing off a little purse while reading this, that looks like it has flannel flowers in the pattern ;-)

  2. Oh my gosh! these are beautiful! I am glad fimo is having a revival. I did have a gumnut necklace but my mother had quite a few pieces.
