So glad that you found me! My blog is about everything I love like gardening, decorating my home & garden and crafting.

I've got mail!

Oh dear bloggers and readers I just have to share with you my latest marvellous swap parcel. It is a private rose and magazine swap which I'm doing with Niki of the delightsome blog http://nostalgiaatthestonehouse.blogspot.com/

Click on the pictures to enlarge:

All was beautifully packed with gorgeous fabric fibers and little fabric rose heart tags and beautiful rose postcards:

Niki has made me one of her wonderful vintage rose fabric bags with an old postcard in the center and a pretty pin cushion also from vintage rose fabric:

If you are intrigued now, go have a look, because Niki is selling her wonderful bags from vintage fabrics and other charming vintage goodies here: http://www.nostalgia-stonehouse.co.uk/

This is the backside of the bag:

And it is also beautiful from the inside:

Thank you so much dear Niki it was a real pleasure to swap with you! Your rose collage is finished and I'm just waiting for some new magazines to come out to put them in your parcel and then I'll send it to you! xox

I'm now planning on having a cosy afternoon at home tomorrow with a cuppa of the delicious chocolate and cinnamon tea which I've got from Nature Girl in my chocolate swap parcel while reading my lovely new English magazines :D

Aren't you a lucky girl. I particularly love your last shot. It looks so feminine, soft and romantic. Are those roses from your garden? I love the idea of the roses tucked in with the candle. I've never seen that before. Are they real roses with the candle? TWT

oh what lovely things - the bag is gorgeous! Aren't British home and lifestyle magazines the best? I buy them here even though they have no relevance to our weather or lifestyle, but the pictures are so darn pretty. I totally dream of a stone cottage with a hedgerow out front and a field of wildflowers out back, with a stream and a forest behind. I don't want much really do I?
