It's a Halloween Treat... no tricks... honest!!

Because it's a spooky day today, I have got together with one of my bestest buddies, Lottie, to bring you this special edition mini- Tote bag and yarn collaboration :)

The set will consist of one skein of sock yarn, in either the "Yoda" or the "Goblin" colourway, and a lovely little project bag in an orange skull fabric, and there's only one of each available.
The bag measures approx, 11 inches by 13 inches, and is fully lined in black cotton.

The set will cost £20 ... and will have free UK P&P...

Every Fridge tells a story

This Blog post has been inspired by an AWESOME lady called Jen Arnall - Culliford , who completely blew me away at the weekend when I recieved a totally unexpected gift, these awesome Skull and Polkadot fridge magnets :)

She said she saw them, and thought of me... *GRiN*

So, I thought I'd take a picture of my fridge and blog about it, maybe a little random and strange, but there you go... hehehe :)
I have picked out a few details... of things that mean a lot to me and make me smile every time I go to open the fridge door.

This is a very sweet and angelic picture of Thing One and Thing two... sometimes I need to be reminded of how they can be *sometimes*...

One of my favourite postcards, amongst the sheep and more sheep and the odd picture of a monkey or two (see picture above :-P)
I think we all know who I got it from :)

And lastly, the favourite picture of all, a bit faded now as it's been up there so long. I may have to reprint it and get it framed, now my Grandpa has passed on...
There was always a special spark between him and Thing Two, or 'Tyke' as Grandpa called him, so I liked to keep the picture there so I had a really nice picture of Grandpa to look at occasionally, and also to remind the children of him, as we didn't get to see him very often.
