A bit late coming. . .

I am sorry to say I have been a bit lax. Back in May I was the winner of a rather lovely giveaway held by Buttons and Beads Gifts. (View her blog here).
I won a bookmark customised to my specification. I choose green and the letter C and it is going to be a present from my son to his god mother on her 30th birthday later this month.
I also won a £10 voucher. I had actually been eyeing up a couple of things from the Buttons and Beads website as gifts for upcoming birthdays and so this voucher came in very handy.
I choose two items from the site as you can see below.
The first is a very pretty pair of pink and white bead and button earrings which I am saving for my neice who had her ears pierced last summer and loves new earrings.
The other item I choose were these gorgeous wine glass charms. They were for my neighbours birthday though I must admit she nearly didn't get them. They are absolutely stunning and make a fabulous gift for any wine lover.
Needless to say my neighbour loved them and even asked me 'How do you find these things?'
Ahh the secrets us crafters have up our sleeves!
Buttons and Beads Gifts have many many more fabulous items up for grabs and are also on Folksy.
And with free postage on their website for June it really is worth popping in and having a browse.


  1. Thankyou for blogging about your win. I'm glad you're happy with them x

  2. Love the wine glass charms, very classy!
    You should definetly pinch the sewing machine from your mums, you will be surprised how easy it is once you get the hang, and it is sooooooooo much fun making clothes for your own children.
