Things Which Have Made Today Brilliant

Before I start- I'd like to say Thank You! to everyone who has made a nice comment or taken the time to blog (Craftsville and ILike) or tweet about my new Caramel Wafer cushions. It was really great to get such positive feedback and so many sales in their first week- so for that- Cheers very much!

So- today I found myself in the Scotland's fair city of Perth. I didn't have much time to myself but I did get a look in a few of the many charity shops in the centre. I resisted a lot- however did get a huge selection of embroidery threads which I'd been on the look out for this week after seeing this nostalgic tutorial for Freindship Bracelets via Fashimi's twitter. I also found little packets of vintage postage stamps from all over the world. I got about 40 for £1.00. The ones in the photo are from 1958 Hungary. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them- but the artwork on some of them is so beautiful I couldn't resist.

And then- I arrived home to find my hand-printed Crystal Forms tote bag by Cuppateaandcake - had arrived. It is really beautiful in "real life" and I absolutely can't wait to tote around my wares in it. I suggest you order one today!

As an unrelated treat- here's a photo of my mum's stripy cat, Alfie with his new Caramel wafer cushion. It's stripes-city!
