Love Will Find a Way - Oh and the Button-y Giveaway!

Well Folks - its been a wild and windy weekend here on Anglesey! Well all of North Wales i think - we ventured off the island for a little browse around Porthmadog. A lovely little town, always a favorite with Hubby P - lots of Charity shops!
Here we are - the gruesome twosome - just well - getting blown away, sat watchin the world go by! We had our son and his partner with us - Robert was playing with his new camera, we're normally very camera shy!
And as for the 'Love will find a way' bit - just look what we have! Baby rabbits again!
I thought I was most careful preventing any kind of romance between Billy and Mo, but hey! like they say - love certainly did find its way!

They are just starting to peep out of the nest - I think there are three of them.

So cute! I will keep you posted.

Here's a couple of random carrots that caused gales of laughter from the men of the house! -Honestly! - so juvenile!!
I buy them from a local farmer who himself was apologising to me for the shape of the carrots! You don't get that in Tesco's! Apparently its because they are grown in very stony ground. I don't mind - they are grown organically and they taste darn good!

Weekend-y Treasure!
A couple more bowls of the Better Maid ware, to add to my collection.
Plus another old 'interesting chair' possibly destined for the garden as an 'Artistic; feature! Unless I can find room for it in the house!

The little old Vintage bottle of Cussons Aftershave will sit nicely with the others in the bathroom.

I know its terrible! I have so many collections of all sorts of random things - why I can't stick with one or two I don't know!

But I also bought this!!
When I was a girl I always wanted a musical box - the ones that has a fairy or ballerina that twirled around when you opened the lid.

So - as they say 'Its never too late' - when I espied this I gladly handed over my £2.
I know it looks a bit mucky - I haven't given it a wash yet - but it still woks perfectly, she twirls like a dream to the tune of 'Love Story' - remember the film? Ohhh how we cried!!

She is so cute! Must get on and give her a wash!
And not to be forgotton - The Big Draw, Names in a Hat an all that!
Well I pulled out three ;-
** Funkymonkey
** Serenta
** Sharie - View to a Hill
So well done, If you let me have your details I will get your little Button-y parcels off to you!
xx That's all for now folks xx Take care xx

  6. Bless you and hubby P and your little baby buns. I used to have a music box with a dancing ballerina like that until her head got snapped off, then she looked quite macabre twirling around, hmmm.... the carrots are fab!!

  9. Bunnies will do that, won't they? So nice to get a glimpse into your life in Wales, x-rated carrots and all.
