Happy New Year everyone....and welcome to another brand New Year. We went over to my parents for a meal last night to say goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012. I raised my glass to you all!
2012 will be such a special year for our family as in just over 7 months time our darling daughter will be getting married. I plan to show several sneak peeks of some the plans but obviously without giving too much away. My first sneak peak was in this post here
The dress is obviously TOP SECRET but what I will say is that the word "devine" comes to mind!
My Hb and I decided to go off to Wimbledon Village for lunch on Friday. I also suggested this as I had some insider knowledge that Cath Kidston had a sale on. We enjoyed lunch in Paul's and then wandered down the village to the shop. I was then in heaven as there were SO many yummy things in the 50% off sale.
I bagged all this lot for Christmas, it's never too early to start shopping in my books ;0)
I bought Christmas oven gloves, tea towels, serviettes, tin of tags, Christmas stickers and a cute tin candle stick. I shall put these away in my drawer and get them out in December.
Here is the pattern in close up.
and this is the tin candle stick. It's like a real old fashioned "Wee Willie Winkie" nursery rhyme one.
I also got this great 2012 Calender tea towel which I showed in full in my first photo.
Whilst I was standing at the till to pay I also spotted something very special
I was not sure whether I should buy it as I had already got a basket brimming over with goodies but my dear Hb bought it for me.....take a look at this beauty..............
.....the most glorious CK special edition charm bracelet! The details of the charms are just wonderful.They also have enamelled elements to them which pardon the pun make them charming.
Amongst an owl and an anchor there is an old London Route Master bus with Cath Kidston enamelled on the side!
The clasp has a heart attached as well as lucky shamrock and a Scottie dog.
There is even a ship with CK enamelled on the sails and a sewing machine with Cath K embossed underneath.
I am in love!
So I have welcomed in the New Year with some special gifts. What a very lucky girl I am. Wishing you all a special 2012, there is the Olympics to look forward to here as well. Sadly we were not successful in the ticket ballot but I think most people weren't either. Anyway the opening ceremony is the weekend of THE Wedding so our family will be fully occupied.
I hope that all your dreams come true and that you have a happy and healthy 2012. Thank you for being such great blogging friends and I truly look forward to sharing all your news and creations during the year to come.
Bye for now,
