springlike & a winner

by greenrabbitdesigns


Oh my it has become very springlike and I’m loving it! I walked into town to do a bit of shopping this afternoon and it was warm in the sunshine.


The garden is slowly coming to life again and it was 22 degrees in the greenhouse today, my sweet peas are now sown.


I’m beginning to collect my Easter decorations, have I told you how much I love this time of year!!! 😉


I’m collecting bits and pieces of spring coloured haberdashery too for making my spring bunnies, I’ve even started one of the springtime girls!


All this spring talk leads me on to the real purpose of my post today, to announce the winner of the Country Living Magazine Spring Fair tickets.

The names of those wishing to take part were written out and put into my little bowl and the name drawn out was Jane.

I’m sorry there could only be one winner but you can still get discount on your tickets by calling 0844 848 0150 or online at www.countrylivingfair.com/Spring/book using the code Blog12


Please excuse my photos today as I have had to post using my iPad as I have a sick laptop which is at the ‘doctors’ at the moment. As much as I love my little iPad, I do prefer to edit my photos on the laptop, hopefully it will be fixed for the next post.

In the meantime thanks for dropping by, have a good rest of the week and Happy Pancake Tuesday, enjoy those pancakes! 🙂

Hello dear Vivienne,

Congratulations to Jane! I didn’t comment on the giveaway-post as I was sure I would somehow mess the counting system 😉 (as much as I would loved to get the tickets, unfortunately here wasn’t a plane-ticket included I think) but oh my there were MANY pretty bunnies there! And I love the idea you getting the Easter things out soon – and this year there’s greatly days to have them around, Easter is so late this year! Happy news for bunny-lovers I would say!

Have a wonderful day, dear friend!

Lovely post Vivienne! The embroidery threads are gorgeous colours. Congratulations to Jane on winning the tickets. It is only a train ride away from me so I could still make the fair. Enjoy your pancakes. My son is making them tonight so I don’t know what they will be like! x
