try again post

Two posts in two days , whatever has got into me

My post on 27,02 was a tad hurried and I gave no real explaination and gratification for the photos I put on there, so I thought , while I am in a blogging mood , I would do just that

Steph over  at   show and tell    started at 50 book challenge blog and its good fun and going along really great ( much better than this blog ) so if you want to hop over and  take a look  , heres the link, or you can even join in, its not too late

50 book challange

Being so generous , Steph sent us all a surprise package which included a book token , that I have still to spend, a piece of bookish material ,a hand knitted book mark (picture somewhere ) a packet of garden seeds,  and   days later I received another parcel , as we are taking part in the Tea Swap which Lucy at    inthesky      orgainised and yet more super goodies,  Hand crocheted star coasters, a hand embroidered card, tea pot and tea bag charms ( which I loved so much I had to buy some ) , everything stops for tea ribbon , a teeny crocheted cup of tea with biscuit , chocolate tea ( i'm going to have a cup as a reward for doing this extra post ) a camomile tea candle,, so that is a better explaination of the photos , I was truly overwhelmed with all of Steph goodies

Just look at this cross stitched card and the Tea is Ready biscornu, I missed off my list, I've wanted to own a biscornu for ages and now i've got one

Oh just remembered Steph gave me an award , which I have talked about it my last post, when the pesky photo wouldn't upload,

Also , and again a much delayed post (which I am ashamed to say )  I won a giveaway from Catherine  over here   at a time to create .  Catherine has a beautifull family and takes some wonderfull photos  ,

This is what was waiting for me when i came home from work , such a lovely surprise,,a little book of Positivity,, washi tape, a hand made necklace  and a beautifull note book ,  thankyou so much Catherine,, the notebook cover is of wallpaper which was designed for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London back in 1896, and to say this came all the way from Australia , what a delightfull present .

At the moment I have a fancy for crocheting dishcloths , not that I'll ever use them

Look at my Mothers day gifts, and a treat out for a meal, aren't I lucky

Had to share this, These two photos have been cropped , not by me , better over on my facebook page

 More from my favourite site


I am going to delete this one forever, so it won't find its way on here again (hang on .I think I 've already done that )
Just when I was doing so well
April is looming up fast
