Thank you/ Marvelous makes madness challenge


Over at the SSC they was a summer swap. My partner was Claire. (She also has a lovely shop)
I was so excited to pick up a massive box this morning from the post office. Like an excited child i hurried home!!




Look at these lovely goodies:




A beautiful cushion which i was going to put in our playroom/comservatory, but the littlest came home and said ' I love it' and kissed it. Its now sitting on his bed. My eldest boy said it reminded him of the boat he has hanging in his window (He was surprised when i told him that the boat was also from Claire from a giveaway i won ages ago!!
Beautiful bunting and a lovely coffee pot warmer. Lovely smelling ice cream bubbles that were used as soon as the boys came home from school, 2 lovely candles, ice lolly moulds and a summer lantern. Plus a can of Pimms that i have chilled and am enjoying now with scones!!


Thank you Claire, you are so generous and talented. xx





Last night i made a yummy dinner for me and the hubby.
Spinach and rocket salad, with cooked beetroot, goats cheese and pine nuts. Delicious!!! Just watch the red wee the next day!!!




As you all know i love Audrey Hepburn. What would Audrey do? is one of my favourite books. So i was delighted to find this magnet the other day :)

It is always good to keep in your mind 'What would Audrey do?'
