Housework nightmares argh!

Wednesday mornings in the Mollycupcakes home is housework time, so out came the duster, hoover, other cleaning items and apron. Down cam the laundry basket and on went the washing.
But what is this I see? it's everywhere from the hallway door right across the living room floor....
... these little monsters. Just like Hansel & Gretel they'd left a trail of muesli lol not bread crumbs.
Oh the joys of having two toddlers hehe! what will they get up to next? Watch this space I'm sure they're planing something as we speak.
It was fun listening to the muesli get sucked up the hoover pipe and the room looks extra clean now, just like the fairies have been in and waved magic wands everywhere (oh hang on that's me! lol).

I've been seeing more and more of these lovely things on blogs, popping up all over the place. So I though I'd have ago at making one.
And here it is. My very own pink toad stall with button and bead polka dots. I love it and it was great fun sewing it together. The only thing I forgot to do is pop a little piece of cardboard in the bottom, so it's falls over a lot lol (a little like me in my younger years out drinking with my girlfriend's lol).
I'm keeping this one all for myself but might make some more for the craft fair in July. Watch this space.....
Many hugs.

Sounds like Wednesdays in my house too (only it's dog hairs not muesli that go up the hoover - not such a good sound!). Cute toadstool - it looks very at home in your lawn!

Its lovely!!- I love the buttons especially. The muesli story really made me laugh-and am also in awe of your patience!! I guess the muesli cupboard will be moving now...?
Thanks for your good wishes on the job front-still work in progress at the mo, but getting there!xx

I love the sound of the hoover sucking up all the dirt, if only I didn't have to be at the other end holding it! Love the little toadstool, very pretty

Love the button polka dots really effective.

A muesli trail ah bless. Don't know if I would have been as accepting but saying that if Wednesday is Housework day they chose just the right time for it.

I will avoid hoovering at all costs, it only comes out about once a month, probably something to do with the 40+ stairs in this house! I did a mammoth clean in our kitchen yesterday, 3 1/2 hours in total, boy was it mucky!
Love the cutsie toadstool, they're popping up everywhere.
Thanks for your lovely comment, your support is very much appreciated.
