New ribbon - happy little faces

Nature collection pansy header 2

Hello everyone, I am back from my hols.

We had a delivery of NEW ribbons while we were away.

These little pansies come with a story……

Nature collection sq
I love going to garden centres, very often on a Sunday.
Where they serve afternoon tea!

My favourite place to go, is what I call the “sick bay”……..
…..where all the plants look so sad and are crying out for a home.

Back in the spring I found this massive tray of pansies, they were really sick,
Tony said they were dead, they looked that bad.
But they were only 50p reduced from £10 – I also love bargains!

I got the sad pansies home and planted them out in my tubs,
I gave them plenty of water and lots of TLC.

They have been absolutely wonderful all summer,
their little faces greet me every time I open the back door.
Big smiles on their faces, dancing in the breeze.

I produced this ribbon for me………… makes me feel happy and puts a smile on my face.

If you would like to share in the delight of these Pansies you can find the ribbon here

Thanks for stopping by and reading the rambles of a self confessed ribbonholic……..

Thank you letters

say helo to wednesday 405

It is that time of year again, saying thank you to the teachers.
Sure you can go out and buy all sorts of things with “Thank you Teacher”……
….BUT I may be wrong………surely that is not what it is all about.
The gift should come from the child. But what do I know I am not a mum.

Here is an idea that came from Mollie,
Made by Mollie, for her two teachers.

hello wednesday mollie letters

Mollie and I had a wonderful hour together, we sorted through the buttons. 
Mollie picked the buttons she liked. I did tie the bows for her.
Mollie is only 5, it is amazing what a year at school has done for her.

Buttons can be found here and the Thank you ribbon is from our NEW Wedding Owl collection here.
Have a great day

It was a joint family effort.

Rachie said Mollie had so much fun with the sprinkles!
