Lovely Gifts

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday - in the UK we are enjoying a long weekend with no work on Monday - bliss.

Anyway, I've had a bit of luck and kindness come my way recently and I wanted to share it with you. Firstly a couple of weeks ago I answered a trivia question about tea on the lovely peaceful blog called The Ivy Leaf. Lori who has created this lovely blog for the Ivy Leaf Tea Parlor in Florida has a weekly trivia question that where you can win a sample of tea from the tea parlour. Well I was lucky enough to win after answering a question and Lori sent me the French Creme' Brulee tea ... how I wish I could share the smell of it with you all - it smells absolutely delicious, and I can't wait to try it out. Please pop by The Ivy Leaf and join in the Trivia question every week, who knows, you could just be lucky enough to win one of these teas yourself.
And for those of you who are Jane Austen fans, Lori also has a Jane Austen Book club that you can join in on her jewellery blog Ellenay Designs .

If that wasn't lucky enough, I then received a parcel on Thursday from my blog friend Debbie over at Debbie's English Treasures. It's a gift from Debbie who wanted to thank me for doing a double post on chandeliers with her. Debbie is such a generous blogger who always makes time to leave comments on other's blog, and she would love it if you would pop by her blog.

Debbie sent me the most beautiful Sweetheart tin, a very pretty milk jug and bowl, pretty oven gloves and some handmade cards, plus a 'Fresh Linen' fragrance oil. Wow, I am so grateful... what a lovely surprise!

Since I'm still relatively new to blogging this has been such a great welcome to blogging.

Thanks Lori and Debbie!!!

A note on perfection

Many of the posts featured on this blog are about doing household chores the correct, or so to say perfect way. My intention is not to make readers feel that the way they are running their households are wrong. So if making the bed, or ironing shirts in a certain way doesn't fit your lifestyle, do not feel guilty about it. But by learning the correct way of doing things it might just come in handy for those times when special guests are staying, or when you need to iron that shirt perfectly for a job interview. So enjoy the learning, but skip the guilt and LOVE your homes. x
