Hi everyone, thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes!
I hope you are all well, I am enjoying the sunshine today, its still sunny outside even though its now gone 6!
I wanted to share some of the rather lovely things that have been dropping through my letterbox this last week or so, as there seems to be a rather feathery theme!
With some of my birthday money I treated myself to this pastel pink love birds brooch from this gorgeous shop on Folksy. It looks really lovely on, and is the same design as the ones from Acorn and Will which I was much admiring on the Vintage Pretty and Shabby blog! But I had some paypal pennies so I went through Folksy.
Another birdy related thing...I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous gorgeous handmade necklace from Ali at Magic Beans. Ali's blog is relatively new, so if you haven't checked it out yet please do go over and say Hi! I put it on as soon as it arrived and have had lots of lovely compliments on it, so thank you Ali for a lovely giveaway.
While browsing Folksy, as you do, I spotted this ring (bought here) which was an absolute bargain and popped one in my virtual shopping trolley! Strangely enough it is almost exactly the same duck egg blue as the stones on the necklace and looks rather lovely when worn together. I do love Folksy, especially the handmade jewellery, in fact I am so pleased to be buying handmade jewellery as it is lovely to support a crafter.
It is rather pretty don't you think?
And lastly, I was also lucky enough to win the 'red' giveaway over at Handmade by Mia, which arrived all the way from Finland! Mia's swap included three gorgeous handmade items packaged up with a very sweet label as you can see.
Its another bird!
So inside was this little pile of gorgeous handmade loveliness!
A birdy keyring made with felted wool. Which is now hanging on my keys!
A red and white lace coaster, finished with a little heart tag.
And this gadget holder, which I have popped my camera in for now as I don't have an iPhone :(!
Oops for some reason these photos have come out the wrong way round, but at least you get the idea! I love how all 4 parts of this gadget holder are made with different red and white heart material, and the attention to detail is wonderful.
Perfectly co-ordinated Handmade by Mia label.
Mia has a fab Etsy shop if you would like to visit here!
So there we have my little birdy giveaway round up! I hope you check out some of the links, and happy blogging! X
