Home etsy Lucky Me

In the past couple of weeks I have been very fortunate in receiving many lovely things including gifts from family and friends, giveaway wins and little gifts to myself!


I received some beautiful gifts from my husband, son and daughter for Mother’s Day and I’d like to thank all three of them very much for being so kind! There were some sweets too but they didn’t make it to the photographs!!!

Recently the postman delivered this gorgeous covered notebook to me, it was a gift from my lovely friend Pam. Pam covered the notebook in a beautiful rabbit print fabric in a colour that is very dear to my heart! Check out Pam’s lovely creations here and here.
Thank you so much Pam, I love it! πŸ™‚

One day when reading my bloggy friend Jane’s blog, I found she had just listed this beautiful bag charm in her shop and I immediately had to have it. In fact I bought it so quickly Jane actually wondered where it had disappeared to in her listings, I think that maybe she thought she had deleted it when listing it! πŸ™‚

I enter many blog giveaways and there are so many beautiful items offered by lots of lovely blogs, usually though I’m not lucky enough to win. However when another of my lovely blog friends Mia had a recent giveaway, I was one of the lucky winners and was very fortunate to win this beautiful felted pouch. Isn’t it gorgeous, go have a look here to see Mia’s other lovely creations!
Thank you so much Mia! πŸ™‚

Mia recently created a sweet little treasury over on Etsy called Run Rabbit Run Rabbit. Now everyone knows my love for these little creatures and when I spotted this pretty little brooch I couldn’t resist and it had to be mine! It was from Silk Purse, Sow’s Ear and they have other rabbity items too (oh dear!!!).

I came by this absolutley gorgeous little block via a giveaway too over on Annie’s blog. Unfortunately though I didn’t win this giveaway but I had to have my block anyway. The prize was to design your own block (colour and word) and then the very, very clever Fee from Chipper Nelly would make it for you. I had chosen a green block with ‘rabbit’ on it for obvious reasons and I contacted Fee and arranged for her to make it for me.

It arrived beautifully wrapped with it’s own pretty little bunny tag! You can find more of Fee’s lovely blocks in her ‘Not on the High Street’ shop and check out her Flickr photosteam for more beauties!

Finally I have to warn you I am now in full Easter mode, I just couldn’t not buy this pretty green glass egg on Saturday, I do love this time of year! ‘C’ seems to go on for about 4 months a year but Easter just goes by in a flash, I want it to go slowly so I can enjoy it all the more!

So as you can see I have been a very lucky girl of late. I have given you lots of links today so why don’t you have a look, maybe spoil yourselves, you know you deserve it! πŸ™‚

It really is like summertime here today, hope you all are enjoying this sunny springtime Monday.

Have a good week, thanks for stopping by and if you haven’t done so already don’t forget to put your name in the hat for my giveaway! πŸ™‚

I suspect you totally deserve to get spoiled Vivienne. I’ll admit though that your gifts are making me a little green with envy πŸ˜‰

Jane March 26, 2012 - 12:37 pm

Oh yes lucky lucky you Vivienne but I really do think you deserve them all. What a gorgeous roll call there and you are so very sweet in giving me a shout, thank you. It was so funny when I listed the bag charm, it did take me a while to figure out that it was sold..I looked in deleted, deactivated, drafts etc-LOL. This is such a special time of the year…yipee for Spring and Easter (can I also do my little shout for “C” too though please ;0) I have a day off from work today (the last of my 2011/12 annual leave) and I am delighting in the sunshine in my garden with Billy. Have a lovely day my friend,

hey…thanks for sharing the chipper nelly love! (I liked your block too!)
Lovely things to look at in this post…I’m trying hard to resist looking at the brooch shop…fear it might be right up my street.
How lovely is this sunshine? so much nicer when unexpected.
happy days

Hello dear Vivienne,

I know you love Easter, but these wonderful things have c-feel to them too πŸ™‚ SO MANY wonderful things, you’ve been a good girl! And so many defferent little rabbits and bunnies, all so you! I’m so happy you liked the little pouch too.

Have a wonderful week, dear friend, and it’s never too early to start Easter-decorations and celebrations, I’ll put mine on this weekend!

Yours,
Mia

What lovely gifts from family, friends and just from yourself to yourself πŸ™‚
Everything is gorgeous and so perfect for the time of year.
I can see why you just had to have the dear little rabbit block. It is so beautifully presented with the little bunny tag.
Enjoy all your goodies and enjoy bunny season too!

Ooooh lovely goodies Vivienne. I love your little Chipper Nelly block, I could have guessed it was for you if I’d have seen it without knowing! Enjoy all of your well deserved treasures x

Patty March 28, 2012 - 10:00 am

Hi Vivienne, what a lovely run of gifts and things you’ve had, I just love the rabbity things too, the block is wonderful. I’ll look forward to clicking on the links when I can, we’re having really slow internet again this week for some reason.
It feels like summer has arrived this week, skipping spring! Really looking forward to Easter and all those rabbity, chocolatey things!
Have a good week x

Louise March 28, 2012 - 8:28 pm
