yay........


...I won a give away............. a signed copy of the very lovely 'Homespun Style' by Selina Lake

now I know there is such a  buzz about this book already and I'm thinking most of you will have read the other blog reviews or already have the book, but I couldn't resist doing my own little post about this very  beautiful book :)


 here are some of my favourite pics








.....so lovely and it gives off a vibe that's not stuffy or designer or hard to achieve..just really lovely homely inspiration for the crafty and not so crafty among us... it's had me heading for the paint store with my little swatches of blue (again!)  reaching for my yarn bag to start another crochet project and trawling ebay for a little wire cotton reel rack...



Selina is holding a book signing and homespun market in London on the 13th April 
see   here    for details ... looks fab :)

have a lovely weekend ...bring on the spring x

  15. Well done you lucky lady. It was one of those books that I just thought sod it and bought, then cut back on the food shop that week. It's a real happy feeling book isn't it. My only problem is that I badly want to own so much of the fabric in it.

    Happy weekend to you Jane.

  16. Congratulations on your win. I had this gorgeous book delivered to my door earlier this week from the Book Depository (I live in Australia). It is probably my favourite book on the bookshelf now. Enjoy.
