A heartfelt thank you to Claire at Serendipity Loves Newyork for her lovely goodies. I ordered some lovely cookie cutters and a pink crochet heart from her lovely website Patsi Bea. How surprised I was not only to receive the beautiful heart, of which hopefully I am going back for more of, and the delightful cookie cutters, but also a beautiful array of other scrummy goodies that I had not ordered.
The kindly and generous Claire also sent me some delicious Soap & Glory hand cream, some yummy chocolates, a beautiful East Of India pink wooden heart and a gorgeous card which has on it a pretty sparkly butterfly.
Thank you very much Claire, you have been very kind :) Please do go and say hello to her, and visit Patsi Bea, I am sure there is many a goodie there waiting for you to buy.
My Home Sweet Home is now in around its 14th week, " Ohooo be no more than 8 weeks love " words that seem to have been spoken so long ago now, and struggling to find any creativity in my mess of a home, I have found it hard to find any prettiness here.
Yet, slowly, slowly I am getting my creative side back, the electricians are talking about second fixing, I am choosing beautiful paint colours, my lovely CK Antique Rose, Paris Rose and Boats wallpapers are itching to get on those walls, some of my pretties that have been hibernating can now come out for some air, flooring has been chosen,I have a new front door and french windows, I have a lovely new shiny range, and can't wait to bake my daughter a beautiful Barbie Cake for her birthday on Bonfire Night, thanks Caroline :) So we are getting there, and in reality the journey of my new Home sweet Home is only right at the begining, and do you know what, actually for once I am enjoying the ride :)
I bought two inexpensive bedside lights, and wanting to be re-united with my creative side, decided to make them, well, less boring
And I prettied them up a little
So hopefully you'll agree, my creativity and I are friends once more and I am sure we shall get together again very soon.
Welcome to Mary Poppins! A world where you shall be made very welcome. I like to blog about my family, home, craft, fashion, and all things pretty. I am a keen shopaholic and I enjoy turning something old and unused into something beautiful and inspiring. Since I was a teenager I have always loved a bargain and I am not afraid of climbing into a skip or two in search of hidden treasure. In my spare time I enjoy sewing, and have become somewhat of a fabric addict. I like building relationships with many brands and I offer product reviews and giveaway's on this blog. I am married with two children and please feel free to get in touch via the contact tab at the top of my home page. Thank you for visiting. x
