Hello lovely readers
Firstly thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my last post
You are the best
Well I seem to be on a lucky streak
I have won, not one, but two beautiful giveaways recently
How lucky am I???
maybe I should try my luck on the lottery before it runs out!
Want to see my beauties?
I won the sweetest little crochet bag stuffed with chocolates
from the lovely Katie over at Booty-full things blog
Isn't it gorgeous, made especially for me in pale violet
It has found it's new home hanging beside my sewing table
I have snaffled most of the chocs to be honest
(as you might have noticed!)
I am on a bit of a diet at the moment
so one little choccy a day will be my treat
keep me going so to speak.
Katie also sent me a beautiful handmade card
some button soaps
I have never seen soap this cute before
not sure I will be able to use them
and this fabulous sewing tin
stuffed to the brim with notions
you see the little basket of roses?
well it brought back a wonderful memory from my childhood
as my mum had one exactly the same
I am so very touched by your thoughtfulness Katie
thank you thank you thank you
I also won a fabulous giveaway from the very kind and sweet Alessandra
all the way from Indonesia
So beautifully wrapped
I am in love with gingham at the moment
Look what was inside...
A garland laden with beautiful knitted hearts
all attached to the tape with little wooden beads
It is so beautifully made
This is my favourite colour heart...isn't it pretty?
Alessandra even sent me the hooks
Also in my parcel was this colourful collection of
sugar sticks and tea
I keep looking at those sugar sticks, they are like works of art
They all came stashed in this sweet bag
The tea is beautiful Alessandra...I added a little honey to it...YUM
Thank you so very very much
I really love blogging
I am so glad that I took the plunge last year
it has opened up a new world to me
I have 'met' such lovely people
so kind and generous with their time and love
giveaways are such fun
and it is the thoughtfulness that people put into them
that is so very touching
So thank you lovely ladies
I feel honoured
Now for something completely different
I have been busy filling my shop shelves with decorations
ready for all the 2012 celebrations
the Queens golden jubilee and the olympics
so get ready for a dose of
Red white and blue
coming your way...
and this here!
They may even be some special celebration birdies underway too
I'll fill you in on that soon!
I hope you are having a lovely week
two days till the weekend
lots of love
