Winners (& wings)

Goodness, thankyou so much for all the lovely encouraging comments about my Country Living feature. It's been such an exciting and busy few weeks that it seems like a bit of a blur. 

Amongst the jewellery-related business there was a much-anticipated visit from a faraway blogging friend. Whilst she was here we visited the Fairyland Fair in Norfolk. It was a very very wet day but once we'd made our carefully planned Important Fairywing Purchase it didn't actually matter too much. 

The rain stopped for a little while and we actually had a picnic, but later we were glad of the fairy post office where we coloured in our enchanted missives and bunged them in the post box. They were sent to who-knows-where.

For days after this trip out there was glitter all over the house. Many thanks to Lynn for the photo above. Yes, I bought wings. I recommend wearing them whilst doing housework on a rainy day. They're very cheering.

There were two other events in the last two weeks. As I say, it's been busy.

There's been so much going on here that it's taken me aaages to get around to the draw for my four year bloggiversary. 

I'm so sorry for the delay - thanks for being so patient. The random number generator chose the following winners this morning:

Menopausal Musing   and

Hugest silvery congratulations! Please email me your addresses and I'll send your respective necklaces through to you.

I'm actually having a bit of a morning off. The pliers and silver clay have been put aside. I am actually reading blogs! (and eating rhubarb polenta cake) .Gasp!

P.S. You may have noticed some new links to new pages up there at the top of my blog, including a page about my studio and garden, a gallery of recent work and one about my silver clay workshops.

Having boys I fear I may never get to a Fairyland Fair but I think I should purchase fairy wings for housework.

Those are four lucky ladies. Love the idea of you wearing your fairy wings around the house - shame you've not got a real fairy wand to wave at the housework! You have had a busy time recently, a wonderful whirlwind of happy times by the sound of it and long may they continue x

Twiggy said...

Congrats to the winners, you do make v.v.v.v.beautiful stuff Emma. I want some fairy wings now, think I'd look great in the school office, but might get mobbed by the little girls in Reception :)

Fairyland looks such fun.
Congratulations to the winners, and enjoy your well earned cake.

Oh a Fairyland Fair sounds so wonderful, I could certainly do with some fairy wings to help me flutter through my days.xx

Kitty said...

I've never worn wings to do housework, but I do remember donning a sparkly silver (plastic) tiara once. It cheered me up :D

Just love that union jack bunting face paint!
