Yes, we got back to our little cottage on the hill on Thursday and I am so happy. I brought one suitcase full of crafty stuff with me, but I haven't even unpacked it yet, the first few days are always so busy with major shopping, organising, cleaning etc.
What I did unpack though were some beautiful gifts I received from dear blogging friends, which had arrived shortly before left the UK for France. Of course I'll be showing you the gorgeous things over the next few days. I'll start today with something which arrived from Germany, from my wonderful friend Alexandra. She is an expert seamstress, I am always bowled over by her sewing prowess. She has made beautiful clothes for herself and others and she also makes the most amazing bags. And she sent me one of her bags, woohoo! Take a look at these pics and you'll understand why I am so delighted with it -
I can't get over all the amazing details, it really is a fabulous bag and I love it!
You know that over the winter, while we were in the UK, I didn't get to any flea markets or antique fairs, and I was having severe withdrawal symptoms, lol. But what do you know, there was a little brocante on Sunday about 50mins drive from our cottage and it was sheer bliss being able to womble along stalls with lovely old things and haggle over a little treasure or two :-). I didn't get much, but I'll take pics of what I did get and show you later in the week.
Thats all for now, its great to have you visiting, thank you and toodlepip xxx
