Awards, tags, mosaics and mentions
Recently I've been enjoying spending a bit more time away from the computer, getting things done at home, spending nice time with hubby and catching up with my own projects and experiments
I've got lots of new things to share with you, the trouble is knowing where to start and what to show you first. So, I think I will start with some general blog stuff and lots of blog buddies to thank and by the time you get to the bottom of this post you may feel like you have been attending an awards ceremony, but here goes .....
THANK YOU to Brandy from Brandywine Boutique for the wonderful gifts I received in her giveaway. There were so many lovely treasures in my package - vintage lace, ribbons, papers, tags, embroidered flowers, buttons, charms and threads - all gorgeous!
THANK YOU to Lynda from Diva Designs for tagging me for "A Bit of Summer Silliness"
Here are my Six Summer Sillies:
1. Beachcombing - collecting pebbles, shells and seaweed
2. Walking barefoot - sand between my toes
3. Paddling in sea water so cold it makes me scream!
4. White chocolate Magnum ice cream
5. Birdsong - the song of the blackbirds in my garden
6. Knitting seaweed
For playing along I'm supposed to nominate six of my blog buddies for their "Six Summer Sillies" so I'm nominating:
1. Karen - Missy K
2. Gez - Gez's Crafty Bits
3. Jo - Knit Weave Felt
4. Lesley - Sea Blue Sky & Abstracts
5. Cathie - Clevelandgirlie
6. Michala - Kayla Coo
Please only play along if you want to (no obligation!)
