Flower swap goodies Etc....

Morning, it's raining here.
But Lorraine's flower swap has certainly brighten up my day.

I received a lovely fat quarter of fabric with little flowers on it that looked like Forget-me-not's. I had a packet of Sweet peas seeds which I shall pot up very soon.
A lovely Lavender bag, a nice flowery cup in one of my favourite colour's duck egg blue.
Lastly but definitely not least, some of Lorraine's handmade jewellery.
Both the earring's and necklace have little flowers on them which look just like the flowers on the fabric. A well thought out gift that is very appreciated. Thank you Lorraine x

I really wanted to show you this.
It is a little peek of a fellow blogger's house I have fallen in love with...
Her style is so up my street.
Linda has loving restored her house in Holland in to a stunning, white, calm and beautifully stylish home.
No wonder her blog is called ilovemyhouse Oh so do I Linda x

Well best go now to do the daily chores whilst dreaming of clean white walls, floors and beautiful spaces, did anyone hear that BIG sigh....... Have a lovely day.
