Eye Spy ... My secret (Food) Shame

I think Jade's theme for this week is super cute, but I have to admit that my many and varied food loves are not so secret. I am not a big drinker, I don't smoke, drug aren't my thing but sugar and fat ohhhh they are my homies. Some of you may know already, thanks to the Mouth Mama, but yesterday was my Birthday so you know calories don't count on that day and I managed to squeeze in as much of my favourite stuff as possible, including eating the cake at midnight. Lamingtons, one of my all time loves.

Dinner was Thai takeaway (the joys of children) I have a serious addiction to entrees and end up never even ordering from the main menu. Golden bags/money bags I could live on them and yummy curry puffs with potatoes and snow peas.
Thanks to Just Add Salt for her suggestion, and her great bag that she donated to handmade help that sold super quick, it was really cute I am not surprised. Next week I think a great one may be Eye Spy ... Love. It could be your current person or thing or your dream.
My pirate pants for Handmade Help is still available for $35 including postage with 100% going to the Red Cross. You can choose size 1,2,3 or 4 just let me know, all you have to do is email me or leave a comment below and the first person I hear from will be the proud new owner. I am super proud, I think we may break the $1000 mark today and it hasn't even been running a week and that is not even mentioning all the great donations and other initiatives.
The pant-a-thon is continuing too, these are the latest girl pants that I have finished in pink cord with brown flower front pleats finished with a button. I likee a lot, hope you do too. I am hoping to update the shop by next week-end, if I get a chance, so if you have seen anything you like you can have the chance to snap it up before Mathilda's Market in March.
PS. THANKS SO MUCH TO EVERYONE THAT STOPPED BY TO WISH ME A HAPPY BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY. I was really touched, like really really appreciative.

Glad to hear you did some indulging on your birthday! I love thai food entrees too. So yummy. Haven't had much Thai these past 7 years or so as my husband doesn't really get into it. What a shame.

Happy Birthday to you. Looks like you had a delicious day. Just wanted to say "onya" for all the great work you are doing with Handmade Help. I am in the process of making something to sell but alas I am very slow... so in the meantime I am bidding away on a couple of items.
