I've been doing some more Etsy shopping at the weekend and bought this beautiful brooch from Monda. It is lovely, it goes with so many things and I have worn it twice already. Thank you Monda!
My other lovely Etsy purchase was from Lesley - one of her gorgeous baskets. (I've just noticed a bit of a flowery thing going on here)
Which is the perfect size for keeping my latest sock knitting which has been neglected of late. At least it looks nice sitting in its basket while it waits to be finished.
And there was also this little surprise in my parcel. A beautiful hand painted bird plaque. Thamk you Lesley!
A little while ago I mentioned I had been the recipient of a few blog awards but I've been a bit slow at mentioning them. First of all I got a "You Make My Day Award" from Kitty... thank you Kitty!
And "I love you this Much" from Lesley... thank you again Lesley (Love you too!)
And this "One in a Million Friend" award from Jane... thank you Jane!
I'm going to break the rules for these awards and not pass them on to individuals because I think I would find it too hard to single anyone out so if you read this and leave me comments or if you read this and don't leave me comments... then consider these awards yours too! And that especially goes for the three of you who gave them to me in the first place!
This post is getting seriously like an Oscar acceptance speech. But I think I've mentioned everyone who deserved a thank you... and so I leave you with news and pictures of Joe. These were taken in Fiji, although he is now in Australia. Aussie readers beware... he tells me he has a job selling door to door!
