Spending spree

I was a very lucky girl and won this fabulous giveaway.

I wanted to say a huge thankyou to all the people involved and especially Clara for organising all my lovely shopping.

With recent events this has come as a lovely distraction and I am touched by peoples generosity.  The parcels started arriving yesterday and not only are the itmes I chose fabulous but they have also come beautifully wrapped,  with lovely notes of congratulations and with some little extras like chocolates ( very well received).  As those who know me with testify, I love nice wrapping and I love recycling,  so I also get a lovely box full of recyclable,  envelopes, tissue and ribbons etc and it is almost as much fun a getting the items.
I would love to show you what I have got but I am being a bit canny and a lot of the items I have chosen especially as presents for family and friends, birthdays and even Christmas presents and as I know a lot of them see this blog then I don't want to spoil the surprise.  But I can tell you I got a stunning Art deco pin from Sue at Butterfly Sue ( which I will keep myself. She was kind enough to meet me as I travelled yet again down the M5, to visit my d
Dad in hospital and give me not only the pin but some beautiful photographs. We had a quick catch up and a cup of tea,  before I headed on down to Exeter.  You can also find her on Facebook
and I know she would appreciate any new followers so pop over and say hi.

Also I will be keeping the lovely felted bowl by and the blink earrings by

You can check out all the shops who offered the £10 here   each and every shop is well worth a visit.  but below are those poor unfortunate people who have had to give me a free item for which I am very very grateful and am touched by your generosity.
