Monday Moodboard

Feeling Fruity! My little boy Vincent has been loving his fruit lately, and it has got me eating lots of it too! The perfect accompaniment to this bright summery weather :)
Eat healthily and beat those nasty colds with a healthy dose of Etsy Vitamin C! ;-)

I love to trade!!

I have been so very lucky lately to be involved in three wonderful trades :-D

First, I swapped with Ingermaaike for these fabulous goodies...

A Floral Canvas Belt, made for the EST weekly challenge hosted by BHBKidstyle
which looks fabulous with jeans or a skirt, and has the most amazing textures!
A beautifully soft felted deep red/purple scarf which I ADORE...

...and a lovely Baltic seaglass felted candle holder, which currently lives in pride of place on my mantelpiece :)
I also traded with the lovely "Flori" of florigamigirl who very kindly agreed to make me my very own custom bag from upcycled felt and other materials. I was just thrilled with the result, and I use my fabulous handbag all the time! She even threw in one of her super sweet felt flower brooches in colours that perfectly match my bag :D
Flori has since started making loads of gorgeous bags in some lovely materials, you can find them in her Etsy shop here. Thanks Flori my sweet new friend!
And my final little parcel of delightful swap goodies came from Sebnem of Shebbodesign who turned out to be my surprise spring swap partner! She sent me this fabulous "traditional Turkish Iznik pottery galleon motif hand painted plate" !!
AND a beautiful cardigan for my little rascal, Vincent. Here he is looking very angellic in it! (Don't let that fool you! Hehehe)
Am I lucky or what?! :-))))))) Thank you so much, my lovely friends! xxxx

I've been away too long!

Well, Our trip to France was a great success and we had lots of fun at my mum's house! Vincent met all of her friends over there for the first time and had lots of cuddles, what a lucky boy ;)

A few photos from our trip...

(Trust me, Vince is much more photogenic than the rest of us!!!)

And so now on to the task of getting my Etsy shop up and running once again. I am making lots of exciting new items and will start to list them in my shop now. I've reopened and am looking forward to lots of wonderful sales! I've missed the Etsy community, especialy the lovely EST guys, so I look forward to getting back in the "loop" :)
