I have met some lovely people - as I am sure you all have too - through my blog, and I have to say a big thank you to the following people for the special gifts that I have received in the mail.
Sorry this is a super long post as I have been super slack!
When we went to England last year (I can't believe the last year has gone so fast) we stayed at an amazing place called Farleigh Wood, Tellisford, Somerset. Here we met Bella in person in a fleeting moment as we turned down the wrong path to the cottage that we were staying in. Bella and her family own the accommodation, which is just across the way from one of the white horse chalk carvings and near the Farleigh Hungerford Castle. After we arrived home, I discovered that Bella is a amazing artist and has a blog also. Bella kindly sent me some of her artwork and some yummy parma violets. You can find updated on Bella artworks here. Thanks Bella!

|The prefect addition to my owl collection|
|Bella painted this weather vane in Bradford on Avon (the loveliest place on earth). I remarked that we have the same one on our garden shed|

|Bella's attention to detail is just amazing|
I also received some gorgeous stamps from another lovely Somerset blogger, Vintage Jane. She always find that most amazing pieces and travels to the local markets to sell her wares. I purchased some special gifts last year from her for a friends wedding, they were just lovely. Thank you M, x
I am sure that many of you know Kylie, Lucy Violet Vintage, if you don't then you had better scoot on over and say hello! Kylie is the opposite to me, she like mid century modern, clean lines and little clutter. My favourite period is Victorian with lots of clutter..haha. Kylie knows that I also like shell figures and this little parcel arrives a few weeks back. Thank you Kylie :)
|One of Kylies handmade cards!|
|This guy made me laugh out loud..haha|
|The creepy shell doll Kylie posted about, actually she is smaller and nicer in person.|
|A card organiser to add to the collection|
|Yay! my own notebook..have to keep it hidden from India, the queen of paper! and a gorgeous table cloth|
Another big thank you to Vintage Bird Girl, we share a love of birds and vintage finds. She wears the most amazing vintage dresses ever! You may even know that her favourite colour is green. Its also nice to receive a message or two on my facebook page, thanks Leisa :)
|The sweetest card|
|Don't you just love the recycled book illustration wrapping paper|
|These are so cute! I even managed to find a home for these in my kitchen!|
|India just loves this fox. She is desperate to have her own room and is collecting pictures to decorate the walls.|
Blog land can be a really nice place with lots of nice people. Thank you!!!
