Yippee......!

Hurrah!!!!.... I can hardly contain my excitement... I arrive home from being taken out for a very lovely lunch to see a parcel waiting for me on the doorstep... Yay!! Good old postie left it sat on top of a pair of wellies that were sitting outside the front door... I love my postie, he signs for deliveries for me which is brilliant as it means I don't have to trek into town to pick parcels up, which can be very annoying as I don't head that way too often and am not good at waiting until I need to make the journey as the thought of having a parcel waiting is too much to bear.. I just can't wait!! Anyway, I am rambling yet again.... this is what was waiting for me..
(I had to be very controlled and not rip the paper off and reveal my gorgeous pressie, but stop and take photos of every stage!!! :o)

The anticipation.. look how gorgeous it looks already, so tempting....
Out of the box and two beautiful postcards are revealed.... these have scrummy pictures of Teena's work....
Ta Dah!!!! And here it is... it is so beautiful and the work that has gone into it is stunning... THANK YOU so so much Teena, I feel really overwhelmed by your generosity. xxx
As I collected the girls this afternoon, I was wearing my ice cream brooch... a small cone full of yummy beading.... and was met with exclamations of..."Oh Wow!!.. that's amazing! Where did you get that? It's so gorgeous.. it's so cool, I really love it..." Well... it is isn't it?
Knowing where to put the brooch was easy... wear it, but what about the heart??? On the big pine cupboard...
On my dressing table?
On the bed....
In the kitchen.....
Hanging from my beautiful artificial blossom branches.....
It has been a hard decision, but after much deliberation and discussion, the pine cupboard has won out... watch this space though as I may yet change my mind.... again!!
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
I had a very productive evening last night... which also means I made a huge mess!!! Once I got started I couldn't stop... out came all the buttons, wire, pliers, ring stick and glue and I was off... Firstly a button garden began to appear before my eyes.. what beautiful buttony blooms....
Followed by brash buttony brooches....

Round ripply rings....
... and krazy, klinky keyrings!!!...

Just time to mention that, If you are in the area on Sunday, I will be at the Craft fair at Palace Avenue, Paignton... I would LOVE to see you. Come and say hello and have a go at making a button bracelet, or something beady!!
Am off now to have a stroll in the lanes, listen to the birds, watch the sun go down and have some space from the madness and noise of the house.....!
Have a lovely evening xxxx
