I’m singing the praises of BUYING HANDMADE today and hoping somebody might look at my shop! I had a lovely parcel this morning from Lisa of Zibagz…I’d ordered a little embroidered bag from her ( I’m not a handbag person and its hard to find a small,pretty but practical thing to carry essentials…my last one came from Fat Face kids department!) Anyway, the point being , that half the joy of shopping “Handmade” is the little extra touches the maker puts in…a handwritten note, interesting wrapping and so on. Also I found her shop because she had “hearted” mine…it makes the planet seem small and friendly!
Whilst I’m on the subject I thought I’d show you this brooch again…not because I’m a money grabbing ,self -publicist but because 100% of the sale price will go to disaster relief in Haiti ( remember? life and world events roll on so quickly but not, I suppose for those still suffering in that country).Trouble is I looked yesterday but it took me ages to find the listing, so here is a link.
Its foggy as can be up here today and snowy too; I think I need to do something with reds and oranges before I lose the ability to see in colour! Thank you SO much to every one who’s been reading lately ( the busiest day ever last week) ,it really does make a difference to what can often be a pretty solitary day ( beats chatting to the chickens..ok, I do that too, but don’t tell…)x
