Spring Giveaway Day 3 and....

Sorry for not posting yesterday's goodies but I came down with what the children had at the beginning of the week and decided that the best place for me was bed. Luckily it was only one of those 24 hour achy tiredy things so I'm feeling much better today.
So day 3's goodies are three reels of these fabulous grosgrain spotty printed ribbons, one blue with yellow spots, one green with pink spots and one yellow with white spots. They are 15mm wide and have 4ft on each so plenty for all your easter/spring crafts

I've also given you a sneaky glimpse at yesterday's handmade surprise - Do you know what it is yet???

I know it's already day 4 but the light had already gone this evening so I hope you don't mind but I will use this weekend to catch up......

There's still plenty of time to enter and I forgot to say in my rush to post about my giveaway goodies that if you put my spring giveaway button on your blog then you get another chance to win, so come on ladies spread the word......

Now onto the and.... part of this post, as you know we had the kitchen refitted (and yes I do promise to post some pictures soon!!!)well all the cabinets are made from lovely solid maple wood and Paul was keen to bring some red into the kitchen (whereas I love green) to add to the warmth of the cabinets. Well luckily enough we seem to be able to marry the two together so here's a glimpse of some of our ebay and charity shop buys for the new kitchen....

Red and Cream Spotty mug and toast rack £5 from the charity shop

This gorgeous 1940's ceramic thermos flask jug which I just love, from ebay £10.74 inc p&P
a cute strawberries and cream retro sign from ebay £8.50

and when I was in the market today the fabric stall had the most beautiful 100% cottons in the mini polka dots and shabby chic patterns, many of them were in reds and greens so I shall be returning soon are with some cash to make some pretty bunting for the kitchen.....

watch this space.......
