my Febuary Collage
some of these aren't just from Febuary, I've downloaded a new app to my phone .
Its called PicsArt, and it does some amazing things

I say so myself

crafty queen

I had a nice surprise in the post yesterday
although I was expecting it , it a was very nice surprise

Crafty Queen from Steph over on folksy  go here
She is so cute ,as soon as I saw her in Stephs Folksy shop I had to buy her
This picture doesn't do her justice, shes so much more cuter in real life
Thanks Steph,

As well as the Crafty Queen Brooch, Steph also included a goody bag filled with charms and stars,
the charms spell out Thanx
Steph's shop is full of unique crafty goodness, not to be missed


My tea swap parcels have arrived at their destination , and I'm so glad to say I sent one to (who else but) Steph
Heres what I included

I'm not ashamed to say my picture is not as good as Stephs on her blog so if you want to see more detail please visit    show and tell

My second parcel went to Lesley over at   calmlycreative
And this is it

I forwarded the copy of Birmingham Rose which came from Lucy , I loved reading this and I hope Lesley will also, and maybe pass it on as part of The Great Tea Swap,

Thats it again from me, a second post in Febuary wow and we are not even half way through the month,

guilty pleasure

I,ve won a giveaway,  so shocked to see that my name had been drawn out of the pot

Many thanks to Catherine (also my youngest daughters name )  over here for holding this brilliant giveaway, I feel guilty because Catherine lives in Australia and postage is so expensive but its such a great pleasure to be a winner,
Go and visit Catherine she does some beautifull photography and has a great blog and tell her how jealous you are that you didn't win,

Of course as soon as I receive my parcel I'll be showing off the photos

My next two parcels for the The Grand Tea Swap hosted by Lucy will be posted tomorrow, and here they are but where are they going to ??

Will the two recipients please let me know when they have been received , this time I remembered to take photos and i'll be posting them here when they have been opened,
Thanks again to Lucy for arranging this fun tea swap, there is no time limit on it , so theres no pressure and its your choice who to send it to,

More photos from my favorite site

Isn't this cottage so cute ? I wish there was some way of getting the pattern , I need a pattern to work off , I'm not that clever enough to crochet just off a picture,
