fairytales & happy dancing

Hello my lovelies
I hope you had a lovely weekend

On Sunday my two kiddos and I went to the cinema to see
lovely G needed heavy persuasion 
but the promise of a large bucket of popcorn easily did the trick!
he couldn't believe his luck
(we are normally very stingy and sneak in our own snacks and drinks)

The film was FaBuLoUs
I have decided that I will one day have in a little cottage in
'The Sanctury'
and live happily ever after

I really seem to have the 'fairy tale' bug at the moment
just can't get enough
Have you been watching 'Once upon a time'?
I LOVE it....just brilliant
I long for Sunday evenings

I am also reading the
The snow child by Eowyn Ivey
It has completely captured my imagination

See what I mean?

I have some exciting news to share...
I have been published
* happy dance *
 My Sweet Pea bunting was featured in 

I am so excited about it and a little proud too
I think it may only be available to buy in the States though

(sorry my picture quality is not very good)

here it is in 'real life'

We actually had a sunshine day yesterday!
not looking so promising for today though

Happy Tuesday
more soon
BIG love

  22. Wow! Well done you, how exciting to be published, the bunting is gorgeous, I'm not surprised you were picked, may this be the first of many!

    SWATH was filmed (only a tiny bit of it) on a beach literally around the corner from where I live. My FIL got to go on set and see how they did the horses racing across the beach etc.... When they were here the weather was just perfect and I remember saying at the time that those well travelled actors couldn't possibly have been anywhere more beautiful, I wonder if any will ever come back on hols?

    Have a great end of week!x

    1. Oh my...that is so amazing Faith, how fantastic! and that scene was breathtaking, i really want to watch it again now and i shall be thinking of you and seeing where you live.
      thank you for telling me
      love jooles x

  23. Congrats on being published! That is SO exciting! That bunting is really cute . . . sweet pea is what I called my oldest while he was still being carted around ala belly.

  24. Oh yes...I am doing my happy dance for you my friend. Congratulations. xoxo

  25. Congrats on being published! That is wonderfully exciting :-) Your work is beyond beautiful!

    I, too, have the fairy tale bug and LOVE the series Once Upon a Time! I have been dying to see Snow White & the Huntsman, but haven't yet. Am really excited to see Angeline Jolie in Maleficent. Sleeping Beauty has always been my fave Disney princess so this will be an interesting take on it all.

    Happy day to you, my dear!

  26. Congratulations on the super exciting news! Well done you.

    I am also a "Once upon a time" addict! I can't wait to sit down to watch it on Sunday evenings! What is that August chap doing there?! - he seems a bit sneaky to me!

    Love Katie xxx
