Newbies


I love love love the blog of the wonderful Artemis.
I love her style, her wonderful days out and her wedding was amazing!!

I saw a post recently advertising a sale at her vintage shop and was thrilled to see a gorgeous crochet blanket reduced from £75 to £27. I snapped it up as quick as i could, as i have been after one for years, but cannot justify paying over £50 for one. And i know thats what they go for, as i've been looking.

It arrived beautifully packaged. I was so excited!!!








 I also bought this gorgeous, gorgeous cushion that i had asked for Christmas. I didn't recieve it, so i got it myself as i loved it so much. Isn't it so so cute?






 I will be putting the blanket over the bed in the guest bedroom when we get round to decorating and i think the cushion will either go in there too or in my study.




 In other news, you have to try one of these:




 Mine was from this lovely tearoom in Billericay, Essex. Just stir the big wedge of chocolate into a mug of hot milk. Mmmmmm Little pleasures :)




Would you like to win one? If so visit me tommorrow for my 3rd year blogiversary giveaway

Wow the blanket is gorgeous - what an absolute bargain! I do like the full colour squares with white edging, like a painbox.

p.s i just read back through a posting about games and phones at the kitchen table- I totally AGREE...myself and family went out for a meal and i was sitting there shocked when a young family came in with 3 children all on hand game consoles- they didnt even hold a knife and folk cos one hand was just glued to the game- the father kept talking on his mobile and other than they just ate and left- they didnt have any conversations only to the waiter asking them what they'd like off the menu...shocking how some parents have a right to have children when they bring them up with no manners- its not even the childrens fault- they've learnt it from the parents. sorry just needed to rant that too hehe x

Oh wow gorgeous goodies I adore that blanket but I wouldn't turn that cushion down either! It's the best way to get what you want isn't it, buy it yourself!

Hello, just popping by to say pleased to be swapping with you. I have followed your blog for a while but been a rather infrequent reader of late so will be having a catch up read.

Awww! I love the blanket. I was perusing them on ebay only the other day. Cute cushion. She does have a lovely blog and she is so talented. I love her blog posts.
You are right about the consoles, etc. I am worried about the effects of all the technology around at the mo and am trying to make sure Eliska sees less tv. xxx
