Flat out fabulous!

These flat out bears are just too irresistable for words.. Made from 100% Australian sheepskin they are unbelievably soft and cute as a button. Their soft wool and flat shape make them perfect for newborns or busy toddlers and have found their way into the arms of many famous bubs with TomKat, Brangelina, and Princess Mary all big fans of these tiny teddies.

These little cuties are available in honey, latte, chocolate, black and milk, and in both a large ($49.95) and small size ($35.95).

A pocket full of posies...

The warmer weather this week tricked us into thinking it was summer again. The sunny days and balmy nights forced us to retire our woolly scarves and comfy winter wardrobe prematurely and dust off our t-shirts and shorts for another innings.

It also inspired us to fill our latest lust-after vase with beautiful flowers from the garden.

How gorgeous do these silver bud vases look snaked across our table with fragrant fresh flowers. (Apologies for the dark photo!)

It's huntin' season..

Pop on your boots, slide on your gloves, and straighten your beanie.. we're going duck hunting!

But don't go judging us just yet, the duck's we're hunting are of the robotic variety and our weapon of choice is an infra-red light gun.

Today's Hit Liftout featured Duck Hunter (item 3) in their 'Toy Story' feature giving it three and a half stars out of five.

A fun game to play both inside and out, Duck Hunter is a game of skill allowing the players just 30 seconds to successfully shoot the duck three times, each hit causing it to stutter and flutter around.

Duck Hunter is $59.95 and is available in store.
