Remember Me

Well you might wonder where in the world I have been lately. .

This mug definitely prompted this post ~

Thank you to Lidy of The French garden house for stocking such pretty stuff oh and the sweet little bird nest is just in time for Easter thank you for including it!!

Well everything is happening all at once here and as the saying goes ~ you can wait for a bus all day and then 2 turn up at once or 3 or 4 LOL. I have 2 weddings imminent, a house upside down with decorating (that has been on going since September :0((( family visiting, new school for the kids to sort out for September. Oh and browsing websites and Etsy ~ that all takes time you know LOL.
I asked my sweet round robin friend Holly of Holly Doodle Designs to recreate one of her fabulous 'love lives here' nesting boxes.


She creates such magic and the colours are just beautiful, well she even included some extra millinery for me as I find it so difficult to get hold of. I know this stuff is as precious to you Holly so thank you so much for sharing ~ you have a wonderful heart!
Rhea from Miss Rhea creates some beautiful little creations too, I bought a little ballerina in a tea cup and this little box below, not to mention some cute little domes that will be put with my whimsical Easter display.

In fact I had to check what I had ordered as I could not believe all the extras, just look at it all. I think she must be physic as I have been looking for paper bells all over the place and the cards and ruffle are just gorgeous. LOOK at the little tag too!Thank you so much, you have a huge generous heart.
The Easter Bunny has arrived!!


Oooooo Sadie Lou where would I be without yooooooou!
see all Sadie's lovely creations HERE

This package arrived the other day, it seems a shame to open it.
Heather at Pretty Petals Boutique has some great hats for sale ~ well just in time for the Easter Bonnet parade I choose this beautiful pale blue creation ~ I love the ruffle round the edge.You might be wondering if I have been creating of late ~ well a sweet lady on the blog asked me to create a framed collage of Marie Antoinette in a paper doll style for her.


More detail here on FLICKR

Lets hope I don't leave it too long for the next post ;0)
