May I Design

Yesterday Mr Postman delivered a HUGE box to my door and I couldn't wiat to get it open because I knew these pretties were inside.
They are hand painted by a very talented lady called Meg. You can find her on Facebook, just search for May I Design and she also has a website ... www.mayidesign.co.uk but it's not up and running yet.
Meg is happy to paint any design for you on either wine glasses, champagne flutes or tumblers.
Here is a close up of the button & cupcake designs ...

The button tumblers are all mine and the cupcake wine glasses are for my mom because she fell in love with them when she saw them but she will have to wait for santa to deliver them before she can use them.

Please visit Meg, you won't be disappointed.
She is closed for christmas orders but she does have some buy it now items available.

Snow And Ice

I had a very eventfull morning. 1st off my ice scraper broke half way through clearing my car windscreen so I had to sit there for 5 minuets waiting for the ice on the outside and INSIDE to melt. When I was finally able to see through the windscreen I was unable to get up the drive. My driveway is a little slope, not very steep and I've never had a problem getting up it in the snow but this morning I got stuck half way up. So after 10 minuets of wheel spinning, rolling backwards and getting very irritated I gave up and abandoned my car at the bottom of the drive and jump in my moms car. Thinking that a Vauxhall Zafera would handle the snow and ice better than a Renault Megane I set off for school, at this point the kids were already 10 minuets late. Got the kids to school 20 minuets late but got there in 1 piece. On the way back I was approaching a junction and breaked very slowly to avoid skidding but instead of stopping I carried on sliding across the road. All I can say is I'm so glade no cars were coming.
What a morning. Usually I love the snow but this morning I hated it and can't wait for it to melt.
Take care out there every-one.

Nail Polish Stash

Yesterday was the day for nail polish deliveries.
First to be opened was my mom's order from Beautyzone2007 from ebay. Even though this seller is in America the longest I have waited for an order to arrive is 5 working days and you have to agree that it's fantastic service. Her polishes are a fraction of the price of hight street stores and postage costs are usually around $12. Just make sure you request an invoice total before paying other wise postage will be very expensive.
So here's what arrived ...
Left to right ..

O.P.I ~ Simmer & Shimmer
O.P.I. ~ A Rose A Dawn, Broken By Noon
O.P.I ~ Tease-y Does It
O.P.I ~Show It & Glow It
Also showing on the pic is another George (asda) polish which I will review very soon.

The 2nd package opened contained an order from http://www.feeluniqe.com/ and contained 3 Nubar polishes. Again a received fantastic service. They arrived within 5 working days and best of all postage is free.

Thank You Mr Postman

Yesterdays post consisted of these gorgeous flower cabochons. These blooming flowers are the best seller in my Folksy shop and as soon as I list anything to do with these flowers they fly straight back out. Usually I only have the colours purple, teal or pink in stock but I managed to find some new colours from America and here they are ...
Lilac, Red & Yellow and I have to say the red are stunning.
Here they are made into hair clips and earrings.


More goodies can be found in my folksy shop, please stop by.
