Lots of lovely bears

I love bears! And always have. I do have quite a few. There is Golden Bear and Flora Dora for a start..

So I was very happy to see a new seller on etsy

Clare’s bears are lovely. They are soft, warm, and full of character. And come in lots of different colours.
Have a look here and then pop over to her shop for a closer look.

Clare will be adding more pieces to her shop so mark it as a favourite and keep visiting, that is what I intend to do.

A bit of a yellow day..

I made some new button brooches last night and managed to get some good photos today due to the lovely sunshine.
I have listed some in my etsy shop and thought I would put a colour scheme in the featured bit at the top.
My shop is looking nice and colourful. Although I think I might work on my banner some more.

The winner is...

Well, I put each entry on a bit of paper, threw them down and tried to get the cat to pick one. She ignored me. So I then threw them at her and the one that landed on her won!! (No cats were harmed in the drawing of this giveaway!).
So congratulations marieisabella. A pair of blue hair snaps will be on their way to you.

Marie has an etsy shop here. Her blog is here.

I really enjoyed doing this giveaway. Thank you to everyone who entered. It was really fun and interesting reading your comments. I will have to do another giveaway soon.

Snapdragon Beads

Isn’t it lovely when you receive something through the post? Better still when it is something you won in a blog giveaway, and best of all when it is from the talented Alice of Snapdragon Beads.
I entered her blog giveaway and won a pair of gorgeous earring. They are so lovely and intricate.
Do have a look at her work, she does the most amazing bead woven pieces.
In her etsy shop you will find these simply divine pendants.

And I think my favourite at the moment is theseVery Berry Octahedra Earrings

One of the reasons I love them so much is that they remind me of the blackberries we pick in the Autumn on Portsdown hill. I see these earrings and I am transported back there with berry juice on my clothes and the taste in my mouth.

And the other reason I love them is that they are fantastic! They look good, are wonderfully crafted and will look stunning in your ears.
So have a look at her shops, you will be sure to find beauty there.
