>Its a day of Smiles

I have 3 things to be thank full and happy for today.

Now what first, lets say a big massive THANKS to the wonderful super talented queen of blogland Christine of My Bella Colle, she gave me this beautiful award, I feel so humbled.

I am not sure if I can pick just a few people to send onto as you all make my day, but here are 3 I have chosen.

Brandi of This Rocks my Socks (you will see why)
Sophie of Sophie Honeysuckle cause she always makes me smile
Shannon of Paint Mine Pink, that girl knows how to cheer me up
and of course back to Queenie herself.

Now for Brandi, she runs two blogs one CatiesBlue showcasing her fab jewellery and secondly This Rocks my Socks, a fab idea, she basically does great interviews with Artists that inspire her and tickle her fancy and you can guess whats coming next, yep, that’s right I rock her socks, so please among checking out my article check out all the wonderful artists she has spoken too. This was so fun to do and I do really love her blog, its so nice to find out interesting facts about other people in our world.
Thanks Brandi I felt so honoured to be chosen.

And lastly, look at my gorgeous hubby bought me as a surprise, whilst we were at the fair on Sunday getting very bored (lol) I met this fab stall holder that makes the most delicious items as well as selling some shabby chic vintage items, I spied this gorgeous little Teacup and Saucer that would go great when I decorate my bedroom well when I got home guess what my hubby surprised me with, you guessed right, that cute little teacup and I went on to find out that its actually vintage Wedgwood what a find and a bargain at £7.00. So thanks my dear hubby for putting a smile on my face on that sad Sunday.

Anywho back to work cause I am super busy this week, love to all.
