Pressies and other bit and bobs



I am trying to get up to date with my blog posts and all that i wanted to show and tell you.

Today i am going to let you have a look at some of the lovely Christmas pressies i recieved:



















This has to be the loveliest Audrey coffee table book i have seen.
You can get it now from Amazon at this amazing price.





Some of my pressies were bought whilst we were in America. I bought myself this lovely magnet:



On Christmas day i wore this gorgeous brooch from here:





'Its the little things'

My lovely Brother in Law and his partner cut off the buttons of old shirts and saved them for me :)



Blooms - brightening these dull days we are having:



I recently bought this gorgeous book - oh my goodness, it is so lovely - it is like a little story with recipes.  If you love old childrens book like Enid Blyton then you will love this. It basically takes the scrummy recipes from old childrens books and makes them real.


You can by it here:





I am hoping to show you soon all the lovely gifts i recieved in my Advent swap. I had taken a picture of each one but they are all on my laptop that is currently being fixed. In the mean time stop over at my swap partners website and buy up a batch of coconut bath scrub and rose bath truffles - 2 gorgeous products that i recieved in the swap that i will certainly be purchasing in the future.

Hi! How have you been? I know it's been a while since I've said "hello". I hope all is well. It sounds like you can to the States!! I'll have to look for a post on that and see where you went. How exciting! Looks like you had a nice Christmas. Take care. Hope to be stopping by again soon.
