lovely things #1

It goes without saying that Betsy is the most lovely thing in this house (sorry Tilly).

However, over the past few weeks she has been inundated with the most beautiful, thoughtful gifts imaginable from our family and friends.  She sure is a loved and lucky girl and all her gifts, absolutely all of them are wonderful, we love them.

Of course, me being a self-confessed crochet addict, the handmade gifts are the ones that make me swoon - this may be because I know how long it takes and how much effort is required to make stuff!!

Take this blanket for instance, aka lovely thing #1, sent to us from my beautiful friend Lucy. She told me that she started making it when I told her that I was pregnant and I have to say that it is stand out amazing, what a treat to get this in the post.

Such a classic design with gorgeous bright colours and pretty edging... we love it.

Thank you to everyone for all your love and best wishes.  Thank you especially to Lucy, who isn't an actual blog friend but does blog here, we love Betsy's stylish blanket and will treasure it forever.

Hey there

Got something on your mind?

Did I make you laugh, cry or even spit feathers?

Tell me, tell me, I appreciate all feedback and love a good chat. I even turned that stupid word verification off to make it easier for you to do so.
