I thought you may like to see some pretties :0)

From the car booty....

Second hand shops....

Tesco.... I loved these star mugs and a bargain at 2 for £3.50

Hmmmm looking at how many I have here one may think I don't need anymore crush mugs. Well a girl like me can never have enough mugs....

adore adore adore these kissing birds....

Somewhere pretty to keep my keys....

I can't wait to set the table with the pretty pink polka dot cutlery....

And place our glasses on these Parisian coasters....remind me of my honeymoon in Paris

The children can have their little drinks out of these cute little Ikea plastic mini glasses and tumblers....

I can't wait to pop my salt and pepper out of these little numbers....

Place all my lovingly baked cupcakes on this.... Thank you for the pretty cake stand mum :0)

Actually you could help me here, if any of you have bought anything similar to this pretty cardboard cake stand, I would so love to know how to put it up. I mean the instructions are easy enough....

I thought....I have been doing my best to slot all inplace, but alas am getting nowhere.

I had to have this sign to go in my our shabby chic influenced bedroom when it gets decorated....

How about handmade pretties, here is some of what I have been making....

I really enjoyed making this custom bag for a customer, who wanted a two way design bag with the initals of her twin babies on either side of the bag.

Her baby girls side....

Her baby boys side....

I love the pink and blue gingham mix lining too.

I have taken part in a swap with this lovely lady, and couldn't wait to use some of the crocheted flowers she sent me.

Using some of my favorite fabrics for this patchwork cushion....

Gotta have some retro cowboys for the boys....

Pretty necklace....

Funky initialed boy's cushion....

Americana personalised cushion....

And a sweet polka dot tote bag....

So, there you are, hope you enjoyed my *pretty* post :0)
