I'd like to say a big thank you to the lovely filthypawsandsilkydrawers for awarding me the Kreativ Blogger award! I'm sorry I don't update more, I will try to do better in future! If you've stumbled here go and check out her blog for the most stunning photos of food, her gorgeous pup, fashion & much more.

Here are 7 other blogs I read (I would give them all awards but they've probably received it 100 times before anyway!):

#1 angry chicken

#2 desire to inspire

#3 poppytalk

#4 My Paper Crane

#5 design is mine : isn't it lovely?

#6 decor8

#7 bread and honey : a food blog

All are centred around my favourite things: crafting, homewares, food and inspiring photographs. I highly recommend them all :) Of course there are lots more blogs which deserve a mention, I'm sure one day I will sit down & write them all out.

Things have been so busy recently I haven't been keeping on top of everything. My own Etsy shop has become somewhat of a graveyard, but don't fear, for I've been helping my mother set up her own! She has been doing the hard work: brainstorming, quilting & sewing; I have just been setting up the shop, making logos & being a nuisance with my camera. It will be open very soon, announcement to follow.

The weather has been good here recently and I have been making the most of every nice day in the garden. I haven't quite finished digging my vegetable plot yet, but hopefully it will be ready in time for the seedlings to go out. The rest of the garden finally exploded into bloom, making me very happy.

We visited a family friend for lunch the other day. She has a wonderful little cottage & garden. Every time I go there I'm inspired to do 100 different things when I am home.

This weekend is set to be busy, first we are going to a Festival of Quilting, then for some lunch, onto an Arts & Crafts Event and then finishing with a jumble sale (I am addicted to jumble sales, bazaars and charity shops at the moment!). I will remember to come and post about it next week :)
