This post is full of randomness as I'm a bit lapsa-daisy with my posting at the moment, I am hoping to come out of my winter hibernation soon.....
First we have the goodies that I sent to Lucey over at Lemonade Kitty as part of the "Spread the Bloggy Love Swap" you can see what Lucey had to say here.
Then there are the goodies the I won over at Emma's blog Bagladee.
A lovely felt brooch
and a flaming fabric brush roll
Most of you seasoned CS shoppers will know that if you are after buttons you sometimes have to ask for the button box which they either keep under the counter or out the back, these gorgeous sparkly flower buttons should have been 20p, which I think was a number that the lady just plucked out the air, so rather than just 20p I gave her all the loose change from my purse instead....
Talking about Jackie reminds me to mention that I was lucky enough to be chosen by her daughter to receive a copy of this book
I'm halfway through it and it's proving to be a lovely light hearted read, especially after my last book, a fantasy fiction novel entitled the Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb which isn't my usual reading material but was fascinating all the same and I am a little tempted to read the next one in the trilogy...but back to A Winter's Wedding once I have finished it I would like to continue what Jackie started and pass this book on to another reader, so if you think you would like to read it or know someone else who might enjoy it then please leave a comment and I will draw a name out of the hat on Friday 25th February and pop it in the post to the winner on the Monday.
It's giveaway time again over at Hookin with LaaLaa, Lynda is giving away some of her favourite things in celebration of reaching 200 followers and her up coming birthday, all the gifts look fabulous and I especially like the retro fabric which would look great in my new kitchen.......to enter just pop over to Lynda's blog here and leave a comment.
Finally this is the most random thing on my post today but I think I finally have worked out where Tompom gets his bright red (ginger) hair from......
No it's not from me or his Dad, although we are gingers too,
it's from drinking IRN-BRU
We had some with our tea yesterday and I'm sure his hair is more orange today!!!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and a terrific half term......
