Bits and Pieces.........

Hello folks, I haven't been on here as much for a few days, so I haven't had time to comment on as many of your blogs as I would have liked. I was on a course all day yesterday, but managed to pop into Cheselpeake Mill on the way back. Its been all re-done and looks fab. got a few bits and pieces. I fell in love with these storage boxes, aren't they cute. Not sure what I'll put in them yet, but I'm bound to find something.
I also found some love cotton tape by Caroline Zoob and a couple of East of India ribbons.


And I just loved this vintage fridge magnet. The little mini teapot above I found in the whittards outlet shop today for £3, thought it was like the new Emma Bridgewater design.

Thanks to everyone who had a look for some fabric for me, much appreciated.
Having one of those days today, where you look at the house and know that lots needs doing, but you can't do a particular job until you've done another one.....phew.....and it goes on. It doesn't help that I've got so many ideas of things to make racing through my mind, and I have a couple of swaps and pressies to complete. All this and no wine or chocolate, cos I'm trying to be good too :O(.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. (((((hugs))))) Pixie. xxxx

That Caroline Zoob tape looks great, I've seen it on her site and thought about getting some but I think the P&P from there is silly! By the way I think I missed your post with the bunting but it looks gorgeous! Love the little tiny mouse you got too :)

Love the boxes, you're yclearly being organised and buying storage BEFORE the lack of it becomes a serious problem! Lol! "Be prepared" and all that, you'd get a girl guide badge for that i'm sure! xXx
