Give away result...

Sorry this post is a bit late, I have had a really hectic weekend and have spent today in bed feeling as though I have been run over by a bus.!! So there is quite a bit to catch up on.

Firstly, it was one of my boys birthdays last Friday. Our Tom was the grand old age of 27 yrs. Yup this is the one no one sees. He is in fact Doting Daddy to the most beautiful grand daughter in the world.

Before we get on to the tag give away, I just want to show you the following 2 tags by Anne Marie's hubby, the lovely Chris. He was bullied into coming on a class on our birthday weekend, and really enjoyed it. So much, in fact, that here's his versions of the tags

Cool aren;t they, well done Chris, I shall expect you in class more often, lol.

So to the winner.

Oooooooh, I need to try that! I just took delivery of the new distress stains from Art from the Heart yesterday but haven't played with them yet. I phoned your Ben to thank him as I only ordered them on Thursday afternoon and they were here at 9am on Friday - how good is that?!

Well done Lynn, if you can email me at I will mail the tag off to you.
 And thank you for your lovely comment about our mail order. Ben works really hard ensuring that all the orders are processed as quick as possible and it is much appreciated when we get a thank you.

Saturday saw us trolling down the M1 to Judy's affordable Vintage fair, which was being held in Sheffield.

We had a fabby time, that is the Royal we of course.!! Him indoors escaped upstairs asap with a pot of tea and some blueberry muffins.!!!

I had a right old mooch around and found quite a few bargains.

Just couldn't resist these and can foresee a new collection starting...ooops

And this little Kewpie doll was an absolute bargain. He deserved to be brought home and loved, lol.

I was hoping to bump into the lovely Karen whilst I was there but we seemed to miss each other. Shame but I did see the back of her head on facebook later, sporting a new hairdo...!!!

Oooh nice one babe.xx

Here was my daily outfit

I couldn't resist adding to my already bulging Vintage attire....

Well it was the BEST Beaver in show..snigger, snigger, and so I just had to have it. AND according to the label it is a Royal Cast Off, tee hee,

vintage brooch and clip on ear rings, completed my purchases to make me a very happy bunny.

And then it was home to a good old hearty meal of home made stew and dumplings. Life is frikkin good eh ??

Well it was before I started feeling rough, lol. Last night we watched films 2 and 3 of the Stieg Larsson trilogy, which btw, if you haven't seen, you need to frikkin hotfoot it to and get them ordered...NOW. I was art journaling at the same time, and was just starting to feel a bit head achey. This is the result, which I love.

Enjoy xx

that page is lush and I have watched all 3 of the films just recently whilst crafting, which means I can watch them again as Im bound to have missed loads of the film . . LOL

Watched the first two of those great films at the weekend, need to order the third.
I had a vintage clothes stall at Camden Market in the 1980's, so love your daily outfit thang.
Wish I had kept some of the clothes now.x
