I've been sorting out a few boxes this morning getting ready for a move to the garden (more of that exciting news soon!) and I came across these wool felt phone cases that I stopped making a while ago. I now use a softer felt which I line to make my phone cases. The design for the lolly case came from our love of 'FAB' lollies which my mum would buy for my children when they were young. She'd have a stack of them in her freezer!

These two cases are redundant so I thought i'd offer you a chance to win them.
So, leave me comment and I'll pick two winners next week and as it'll be Easter by then I'll throw in a creme egg for good measure!

Good Luck!

Location, Location, Location

Firstly I must apologise for the amount of photos in this post, but I felt the need to show them to you!

We have just spent a few amazing days at Kirstie Allsopp's beautiful house in Devon where we celebrated my niece's 30th birthday!

We arrived on Tuesday afternoon taking the glorious weather with us.

I have taken many, many photos and some of you may recognise some from the tv series.
It was so welcoming and felt more like a home than a holiday home.
There was mis-matched crockery amongst some more expensive pieces. Nothing was hidden away, it was all there for us to enjoy.

'Ay Ay Captain!'

There were lots of her handmade goodies around the house for all to admire including this beauty.

The famous 'WOW"

The gorgeous kitchen.

                                                                         The sitting room.

The master bedroom with the bath that overlooks the garden and the view to the beach.

Beautiful oilcloth bunting that will be re-created here in the next few days!

And the secluded beach a mere ten minute walk away.

All booked and ready to go again next year!

Are you a Lucy, Lynn or Rosie?

I have recently changed the fabric of the glasses on my glasses cases and have a few ex sample cases that I have no use for. 
So......if you or someone you know is a Rosie, Lucy or Lynn and would like somewhere to keep your glasses, then please speak up now!
The first to comment will receive one.

Good Luck!

Thank you, that was fun!
All done and on their way to new owners!
