Today i went to Barleylands and bought a massive load of fabric scraps and fat quarters. I'm getting quite a stash!!

I'm feeling alot better this week, thanks for all your good wishes. I went and got my flu jab today and i've been offered the jab for swine flu too. What are your opinions on that? I'm not sure whether to have it or not.

Ages ago i ordered this book on Amazon - it finally arrived and i am enjoying reading through it.

This lovely lady is Jane from Snap dragon - she has appeared in this months Red magazine. Jane sells gorgeous wreaths and lovely goodies such as the christmas pudding notebooks below - i am a proud owner of one.

Also in Red this month:

I really really want this beautiful necklace!!! £36 from Red Direct.

And just look at these great christmas decorations:

Butterfly:£12 for 6, Paperchase.

Felt heart: £34.95, Liberty.

Ballerina: £2.60, Debenhams.

Dragonfly: £3, Debenhams.

Union Jack: £18,

Pom poms: £2 each, Paperchase.

Gorgeous doggie: £14.95, Liberty.

The lovely Wintery inspired Emma Bridgewater catalogue dropped through my door. Lovely pretties to feast your eyes on.

So excited about the Country Living fair on Saturday - can't wait to meet some fellow bloggers!
I know there are a few of you going tommorrow and on other days, so have fun! And to the ladies selling and shopping at the Vintage and Handmade show on Saturday in Bristol - enjoy yourselves!! I'll be visiting the one in May!!

Oooh! I didn't know Bridegwater did a catalogue?! Fabulous news!

I love their things... don't have as much as I'd like, just a few bits, but really love them.

Humphrey bunny has their bunny bowl.. such a spoilt rabbit!!

And I have just received some lovely Snapdragon things from Jane to sell at Cottontails, going to put them on the website this weekend along with some other treats :-)

Love Charlotte
