My First Award

My first award!!

Look what I have got my very first award, I am pleased to bits with it.
To receive this award there are 3 things I have to do, so here goes, I hope I get this right.

  1. Say a big thank you to the person who sent you the award, so thank you very much Pink Fluffy Warrior you made my day.

  2. Reveal 7 interesting facts about yourself, this could prove tricky as I'm not that interesting.

  •   I have a very sweet  tooth, chocolate is my all time favourite, especially Green and Blacks dark chocolate with cherry's.

  • My occupation before I left work to raise Isla-Rose was as a pharmacy dispenser, very far removed from anything crafty I know.

  • I get very excited about visiting coffee and tea shops.

  • I love books and have been known to take 6 on a fortnight  holiday and read them all, this was prechildren though.

  • I played the drums as a teenager and had my own kit in my bedroom.

  • I'm 5"1 and 3 quarters and that last bit makes all the difference.

  • I love pigs and would love one as a pet.

3. I now have to pass this award on to 15 more beautiful blogs.

I have had lots of lovely comments about my little blue and white jug that featured in my previous posts, it is beautiful isn't it?  It was a lucky find from a charity shop and cost just a £1.
I thought I would share with you some of my favourite charity shop finds from this year so far, here goes..

My favourite find  (£2.50)

To Pretty to chop on.

I love hunting around charity shops, looking for that little gem.

I have also found the time for a little crochet this week, we have had a new baby born into the family, so had to whip up something cute. Inspired by the Birdie pattern on the lovely Attic 24  I have made a birdie mobile, what do you think??

Speak again soon..... Jacey x
