A little gift

Hello. It's been a long while since a did a little giveaway on my blog. In fact I think the lasts time was actually on my previous blog. So as I recently reached over 100 posts here and over 200 likers over on my facebook page, I decided the time had come to give a little gift back to one of my lovely followers/likers.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning these the brooch, egg cosy and lavender sachet is leave me a comment here. If you'd like another couple of chances then pop over to my facebook page and comment on the giveaway post there too. I'll draw a winner at the beginning of next week.

52 Weeks of Happy (5/52)

I've been pretty bad this week about photo taking. Partly it's been the weather and partly it's been me being a really scatter-brained Mummy forgetting to take my camera. For example we went on the loveliest walk on Sunday along a stretch of the Thames and I didn't take the camera. I was so annoyed with myself as it was a wonderful afternoon. So pretty and lots of memories to capture. It was a new walk to us so we're definitely going to be doing it later in the Summer and I promise to capture it next time. So yesterday afternoon when the sun finally came out I popped into the garden and captured a few images of how it's looking now. Problem is the camera doesn't really do justice to just how much better it's looking now than it did last year, hence all the fairly close up shots. So here in words are my happy things from the last week even though I don't have pictures to go with them all 

:: Making a Fathers Day gift for Lovely S with the boys. Little F painted a card and we also made hand prints of both of them which I put in a frame. ( I will take a photo to show you when it's on the wall as I'm really pleased with it)
:: An idyllic walk along the Thames. Sunshine, flowers, wildlife, fun, laughter and some seriously stunning riverside properties for Mummy to look at!
:: A day spent with my Mum and the boys. Dad was away sailing so we had a slightly more girly day together. Lots and lots of chatting and a lovely trip to the park plus window shopping in a lovely little town not far from here. 
:: Doing a lot of creating and getting my first sale via my Facebook page. I've been working really hard on Linen & Roses in the evenings and I'm loving it.

Hope you all had a good week. See you again soon.

52 Weeks of Happy (4/52)

My happy things this week :

:: Stitching some new brooches which are now available on my Facebook page.

:: A first peaceful cup of tea in the sunshine before the boys awake. 

:: My lovely garden coming into bloom. I am beginning to realise why people become obsessed with their garden. I'm loving mine as it slowly starts to take shape. I promise a full post soon to show you just how much it's changed since my last garden update. 

:: Working on a custom order of lavender filled linen hearts for a very lovely customer of mine. 

So many other things making me happy this last week. Lots of sunshine here in Buckinghamshire has seen us spending lots of time in the garden. Little H learning how to use his balance bike, digging in the soil, finding worms, lots of imaginary games. Little H discovering the garden, rolling and trying so hard to crawl, feeling the grass under his cute little fat feet, seeing the blue sky,  the fluffy clouds and birds for the first time. Lots of cuddles. A barbeque with neighbours. Yummy Sunday lunch with my in-laws. Lots of sewing and working on ideas for Linen & Roses. I love Summer. 

Have a lovely week. See you again soon.

52 Weeks of Happy (3/52)

 :: Doing a bit of a stock take of Linen & Roses Products and loving how everything looks together. 

:: A gorgeous package of 'happy post' won over at The Green Gables . A pack of cute note cards. A Birthday card. A Good Luck Card. A cute notebook. Really lovely stationary. You should definitely check it out.

:: Finding little people in funny places. Little F loves my old Fisherprice toys which I find so heart warming. 

:: Enjoying homemade scotch pancakes and a cup of tea on a rainy afternoon. 

I'm really loving this process joining in with 52 weeks of happy. It's making me focus on looking at the small things that make me happy every day that normally go by without really thinking about them. 

Have a good week and enjoy the sunshine
