It’s been a while…

Far too long since my last post…sorry about that. I have been pretty busy with various things which has kept me away from here but I will try harder!

In the meantime, hope you enjoy the picture of the birthday cupcakes seeing as it’s my birthday today and all that. Wish I was getting those cupcakes but I’ll be happy with any kind of cake really!

Lots of Love,

Wedding Bells

Hello you 🙂 So lovely to see you again.

I have some excellent news…my lovely sister, Miss S, has got engaged! So, in honour of her planning the wedding I thought I’d show you all some lovely wedding stuff that makes me smile.

This indian wedding cake is amazing!

I love this shot of the lace dress.

Dresses from 1861

Dont forget flowers! I like bright ones 🙂

Some great ideas for homemade wedding favours.

And of course, a gorgeous knitted shawl…I could make that, I’m sure.

Congratulations to you both!

Lots of Love,

The Lovely Fair

Hello you 🙂

I’m sorry it’s been a while…but here I am, and I’ll make up for it now I promise!

My very lovely sister has organised a craft fair!

It will be taking place on Saturday 15th October 2011 at St Francis church hall in south Bristol.

Please have a look at her website for more detail about the fair and how to book a stall if you are interested.

Lovely! Craft Fair

The fair will have free entry so you can go and have a look around at all the loveliness for no charge.

My sister also has a website to sell her cute and lovely jewellery…please take a look at that too!

Lovely Online

Another reason to go to the fair is that I’ll be there! Yes, I’ll have my own stall selling handmade cards and knitted loveliness…would you like a sneak peek?

Aren’t knitted cupcakes so cute!

So, I have my work cut out for me…lots of things to knit, I hope people like them and that I manage to sell some of them! I know not all of you can get to the fair…how would you feel about me setting up a shop on my blog so that you can buy some of my lovely things?

Do let me know if you will be coming to the fair, it would be brilliant to meet some of you.

Lots of Love,

This Week’s Loveliness

Well there has certainly been some loveliness this week.

First of all, my daddy wrote me a letter! He never usually writes letters but I got one 😀 It was so lovely and came at a perfect time cos I needed cheering up.

Secondly, did I tell you I won a prize on a blog giveaway? Well, it arrived! It’s a skein of Tilli Tomas yarn that is 100% silk, lime green and is threaded with cute little turquoise sequins…wanna see?

I know, the photo is awful (took it on my phone and had shaky hands!) but you get the idea 🙂

The next bit of loveliness is the great response I had from my previous post on M.E. awareness day, thank you to all those who read it and sent me wonderful feedback about it 🙂

Also, today my lovely boy brought me back a cupcake…it was chocolate cake with mint frosting, yum! I should have taken a picture but I was in a hurry to eat it! (It was delicious).

Next we have…ta da!

Cupcake-printed doilies! And guess what? They are going to be added tot he prize fund of the competition as I have had over 15 comments now. Get more people to comment and enter the competition so that even more goodies will be added!

Lots of Love,

Cute bits and pieces

A few bits of loveliness to brighten your day (and mine too!)

 

First of all…a cupcake apron! I have decided that I really really need an apron and I want a fabulously cute one.

Another apron! Still cute though.

Cupcake ribbon…how awesome is that?! I can never have enough ribbon…and cupcake ribbon is fantastic.

Oh…this bear hood/scarf thing with pockets…I have it but in black. It is so warm and snuggly…and cute…it makes me look like a bear! yay!
