This is just going to be a quick post because I'm sick in bed this morning with a really nasty cold and I feel as though my throat is on fire. But I also know that if I don't do this now, the Lemsip medication will wear off and I might not have time to post until the weekend again.
We've not had as much snow here in Oxfordshire as the lucky Londoners, but we did have a nice dusting covering the village where we live. It was a bit scary driving!
Banjo enjoyed the snow, and even ate a little snowman that next door made. We thought he was just sniffing the little snowman, but before we knew it he was eating it like an ice cream. Naughty Banjo!
My cold started comming along yesterday, but then I also got a lovely surprise yesterday. Debbie and I decided to do a little kitchen swap. As anyone who has done a swap, or bought anything from Debbie's lovely shop knows, she wraps everything beautifully with ribbons and beautiful handmade tags. I didn't get a chance to take photos of the gifts before they were opened because I was too nosey!
But here you can see the beautiful tags that Debbie makes.
This is what I got for my kitchen...
A Cake Decorating book, perfect for those special occasions!
A beautiful red mug with some hand creams tucked inside, yum, they smell nice!
A gorgeous tin with a cute baking ornament on top! So lovely.
A glass sugar/flour shaker (oops, I didn't add it to my photo because I've already added it to the rest of my collection of shakers, which I love!!!!).
The most beautiful 'tea for me' teapot cup and saucer... I LOVE teapots! And this one is soooo pretty.
And my favourite has to be the beautiful cross-stitch cupcake picture which I assume Debbie made (she is talented that Debbie). It's just so sweet, and even has some lavender tucked inside the frame.
How lucky am I?
Thanks you so much Debbie! It's even made my cold feel better. I promise to take a picture of my glass sugar shaker collection soon and post it on here! I really love my new vintage treasures!
I hope you are all well! I'm off to bed now.
