Amazing Buttons From My friend Claudia
Gorgeous Fabric Art from Picciolo
I won a Freebie from Pink-Petal-designs!!!
Right, I still haven't got the link thing down (despite having a tutorial from my friend Sarah!). I'll get there eventually. I promise that by next week I'll be linking all day long, but I am (at the moment) still a complete idiot, ha ha ha! I am over 30 - I shouldn't be expected to know how to use a computer let along do fancy links! :D
Sooooooo, yesterday the lovely posty came to visit me (as he does most days) and he brought me 2 little parcels, one was a present for my friend for Christmas that I got from;
(I'm starting early with the present buying so I don't get a huge bill in January from Mr Visa!). It is even more gorgeous in the flesh and my photography doesn't do it justice at all! The other one was some hand embroidered buttons from a friend of mine in Holland. She has a shop on etsy too -
She sells some really lovely things. My fave are her buttons though, I have a thing about buttons.
Last night I went out for dinner for Grace's best friend's 8th birthday. Grace stayed over at her house last night, and then went bowling for the day with her and her dad, so the rest of us have had a lovely peaceful day (sorry Gracie - we love you really!!!!). We went for lunch and I had a gorgeous lamb stew pie (yes, it does sound strange - it was a bowl of stew with a pastry lid on basically!). I wish winter would hurry up and I could eat things like that all the time, I'm bored of the fake Summer we have had and trying to have BBQs in the drizzle!
Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you about today's offering from the postman. Not only did he bring Grace's winter wardrobe from the Mini Boden catalogue (in 2 boxes and I am still waiting for a load more - did I over order as usual???!!!) he also brought me a fab felt covered diary from;
I won it in a giveaway. It's really lovely and I have a sneaky suspicion Grace will try and steal it when she comes home (so I have hidden it safely in my bag). I am hoping it will make me more organised and remember to write things down. I have a diary i use at home but it's no good for me when I am out and about (when I need it!) This little purple one is perfect and may well save my life (it really is THAT good!!!!) Sarah has a shop on ebay as well as etsy (check out her blog and follow the links). It is full of things for Grace and her friends for Christmas.
And for the rest of today I have been listing new cats and horses on etsy. I am rather fond of Samantha and Amanda the cat twins ('Samanda' - did anyone watch Big Brother?). They have brooches on them that can be worn by you (if you buy one, not if you don't!!!!). I am also very keen on Rufus the Ladykiller stallion, I hope he goes to a loving home! There are quite a few new friends in my shop, go and have a little peek and read all about them.
I've really gone on today, haven't I?! Oops - sorry! I hope you all have a lovely weekend whatever you do. And I shall practise my links for next time!
