Ooh Laa Laa!

There's a lot of grot in the world ...

but there's also a hooooootling amount of loveliness.

Look, look, look what Lynda from Hookin With Laa Laa sent me ...

The most exquisitely handmade little purse in CK fabrics (see the inset photo of the back too) complete with beautiful stitchiness on the front.

Embroidered roses (definitely destined for denim), a CK mug (no kidding, I so nearly popped one of these in my trolley when I last went to Waitrose), perfectly peachy ribbon and Lush lotion (my favourite).

Wait, it doesn't stop there, Lynda also included these pretty iron-on letters ...

Oh.  How rude.

Oops ...

Tee hee!

Thank you so much Lynda.  You have completely got me sussed.  Everything is perfectly perfect and I am tickled pink.

I have yet more loveliness to share with you.  Tomorrow, D and I, sans blondies, are going here for a whole day and a whole night ...

It's Byfords, the posh Bed and Breakfast, in Holt, Norfolk.  Yay!!!

Of Holt, "this pretty Georgian market town, nestled in the north Norfolk countryside, is brimming over with many interesting antique, arts and crafts and gift shops. There are also plenty of lovely places to eat and with the North Norfolk coast within easy reach you can walk off some of those extra calories while breathing the refreshing sea air."

This little trip sort of ties in with D and I 'being together for 18 years' and I'm soooo excited.

Can you believe that our stay is a 'thank you gift' from our dear friends, Peter and Jane *waves to Jane as she is known to stop by from time to time!*

I shall have my trusty Canon Ixus clutched in my mitt so will share all (well, select highlights) on my return!

Before I go, I should like to say a big "THANK YOU" to the lovely Helen of Moonstruck Creations and the gorgeous Gem of Treasures From The Cherry Tree for these awards respectively ...

Do go and have a peek at these girls' blogs, you'll love them.

With regard to fulfilling the rules of the awards, I think you know enough about me already but I'll rack my brains for some interesting facts.

I don't know if you're the same, but it boggles my mind sometimes to know that there are creative, articulate like-minded souls out there (yes, you) who browse my pictures, read what I write and then come back for more.

As I say, such loveliness in the world ...
