A Big Thank You and a little giveaway

 Hello dear bloggers
Everyone has been so kind with their lovely comments on my boxes etc, my problem is I'm my own worst nightmare, I have so many things I want to try out, my crotchet blanket is having a lovely time lazing in its basket dreaming of the day it will be used finished.   :)

I have a mountain of fabric I would love to use on
1. A scrappy patchwork cushion, ( I blame Helen @ A patchwork Heart for this and the rug :)
2. A fabric scrap rug
3. I want to make beautiful brooches, Annie (The felt fairy) this is some of your lovely felt.                    
    this is work in progress.
4 .Make Christmas decorations for my children to treasure.

5. Paint watercolour miniatures like I used to do years ago

   The list is endless because it lso includes loads of decorating and my biggest ever to do project renovating our old summer house, some of you may remember my blog in the Summer.
I can never seem to get myself organised.  I think being unwell for a long time has rather taken the wind from my sales or maybe it's being a Gemini, I can never make my mind up and always have an excuse :)

Does anyone else have this problem ?
On a different note I try not to look at how many followers I have, but after a recent  blog discussion I did take a peep, low and behold there were 10 more than last time I looked, so my planned giveaway is to say a great big Thank You to all my old bloggy friends and a big Welcome to my new ones.
I often trawl around blogs and have a good read, wonder at some of the beautiful things you all make and enjoy seeing new places, but sometimes I don't comment, I don't always feel I have a lot to contibute, but I do enjoy it and have been so glad I started this blog. I have made some lovely friends ones I may never meet but in blog land it doesen't matter.
This is just a little something to brighten someones day, so post a comment on my blog, both blogs for a double chance :) and I will put your name in the hat .Let me know which you would prefer.

                                  I will close this on 1st October

                     Well must fly I have such a lot to do

Vintage Mums Treasure is now open so help youself to tea  and let me know what you think of my shop. I have tried to charge a fair price which isn't easy as some of the boxes take me ages. I would love to hear from you all good or bad feedback is welcome. 
As a Thank You for taking my button I will be having a givaway very soon.
I am thinking of taking some boxes into work but feel a bit awkward, I never have been good at sales it's my  worst nightmare.

Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with the button thing, I let my daughter take over, what would I do without her :)

Look forward to hearing from you all

A nice cuppa tea

 I have been getting these teabags from our local tiny shop for a few weeks now the first time simply because we had run out of the usual ones. I think the box is great something nostalgic about it, could be the U J   :) Out of curiosity I went on their web page and was suprised to find 50's nostalgia have a look at the saucy postcards :)

I am not one for plugging things but sometimes it's nice to show a bit of appreciation for a good cuppa at a great price and I'm all for saving the pennies.
cheers me dears
