Slow down! Half term is going by far too quickly - its been a manic week here and I've only just got round to sitting down to write about something rather lovely that's happened!
Last Thursday when the rest of the country was getting excited about roses & chocolates I was feeling a bit sorry for myself when I stumbled upon an email in my inbox. Not one of those claim non-existent PPI or buy dodgy pharmacy items but something that was rather lovely and made me smile.
It was an email from the Dotcomgiftshop telling me that they had listed my little blog on their blog in the section - Gorgeous Vintage Blogs We Love - well if you look here and scroll down, you'll see lots of familiar names and then if you scroll down, you'll find my blog and the most lovely write up about me :)
Now the lovely Dotcomgiftshop people asked if this was ok to use my blog and my photo - of course I said yes, I was feeling rather flattered and chuffed that I was on a list with some lovely bloggers I know and others I am getting round to reading & following. Then then also asked if there was something that I would like from their range to use and review.
My goodness like a child in a sweetshop I spent time clicking on everything and coming up with a list of things that I liked and needed to whittle it down to one for now.
I love fairy lights and feel that these are definitely not just for Christmas - however where I want to put them doesn't always work as sockets are not available or close enough. However I spotted these and knew that I could have some fun.
10 Little spotty & rosy lampshades on a string - all powered by 3 AA batteries.
Out of their box - aren't they just cute :)
Just a matter of where I was going to put them. Sadly its been dull here again and not ideal for pictures but these give you some idea;
Round the picture above my bed
Across the desk in a my sewing room
Or across the fireplace along with some bunting!
I think across the piano would have worked well or best of all I think these would be fab on a camping/caravanning trip when electricity isn't always an option!
Thank you Dotcomgiftshop for my lovely mention on your blog and for these lovely lights. I look forward to working more closely with you in the future :)
