A nation of shopkeepers & a little giveaway

Good afternoon

Just a little post for today - I had wanted to show you some crochet progress but I'm not quite there so shall save that till next time.

However there are two pieces of good news from the VV household today;

1) My little folksy shop is up and running - first 3 items added yesterday with more to follow, once I've taken more photos and written some descriptions ;


I've gone with using this picture as my shop logo and have also ordered some little cards from the lovely people at Moo - thanks Kandi for the code :)


2) I've subscribed like so many people to the lovely Molliemakes magazine - due a mix up in their mailing department I've received a 2nd copy in the post today. So I thought I'd offer it as a little giveaway to another blogger who maybe hasn't been able to find it or who would just like to see what all the fuss is about. Leave a comment on this post and I'll draw names on Sunday night (I know I'll have a quiet hour - Top Gear is back!!).


Right back to housework - least if I'm hoovering I can't hear the thunder - I really don't like it :(

See you Sunday

You are so kind, I would love to see what all the fuss is about. I have been very strict with myself as I already subscribe to 2 magazines and then buy another magazine each month xxx

I would really love the molly makes magazine! I'm new to crafting and haven't been able to find it anywhere in the shops, but don't want to subscribe in case it's too difficult for me!

Thanks so much for leaving a comment about the phone - I always feel as if I'm ten years behind the rest of the world! I've comment back to you after your comment on my blog as well. Brilliant you've opened a Folksy shop - I'll come find you and fave you... I'm SewHappyShop on there. I'd love love love to enter your giveaway - I was so upset to find all the copies had sold out by the time I looked for it (having picked up the first one). Would love the chance to see it. x

Lace hearts said...

Pretty at Heart said...

All the best with your new shop.
I really wanted to buy the mag when I heard about it, but having to watch the pennies a bit at the mo until we find out about hubbys job - so I couldnt really justify £4.99 when I already subscribe to quite a few house mags!
Ooh will pass on the message re Top Gear to hubby and son!!

August Paddock said...
