Give-away Winner!

Handbag Winner!

Thank you to everyone who managed to enter the competition and for all your lovely comments.
I know some people had difficulty leaving a comment, seems like there were some blogger technical hic-ups!

After playing with some imaginative ideas for choosing a winning name, which included writing names on paper and popping in the bath, pulling the plug and seeing which name got sucked into the plug hole vortex first, LOL and then trying to decipher names on on soggy bits of paper, the winning entry is from the lovely Faith of Abyjem.

As soon as Faith has chosen her handbag, I'll leave a picture of it for you all to see.

Thank you again!

I'm having a Handbag Give-away Comp.

I am so exited to have reached 500 facebook likers for my business page, that I have decided to have a give-away to celebrate!

The comp will close on Saturday 18th February at 7pm, so lots of time to get your comments in. The winning comment will be chosen in some imaginative way decided by one of my children and the winning comment and follower will be emailed and featured on the blog!

Folksy Friday! Feeling Blue!

Feeling Blue!

With all the snow and ice today here in Berkshire, the thought of going outside not only has me feeling blue, but I am pretty sure I would come back in looking a bit like a Smurf, as long as it is not Papa Smurf, I suppose that could be okay, not sure if I long white beard would suit me, although it might keep my face a bit warmer, so I'll keep my options open on that one!

So in keeping with the blue theme, here is a mega feature gallery of some gorgeous blue finds from Folksy friends and fellow fruitcakes!

Please just click on the picture to be taken to the item in question for a more in depth look at these gorgeous blues.

A Little blue gallery of my own.

Thank you!

Winter is Coming!

Snow and Ice!

Winter appears to have us in her icy grip once more, with the threat of heavy snow and minus temperatures for the weekend, I felt a snow and ice inspired Folksy Friday was called for, if nothing else to prepare us for the event and show us how beautiful it can be.

Of course, these wonderful creations will not cause widespread disruption and panic, but will cause a flutter of admiration that will not dissipate with the first touch.

If you have been touched as I have by the beauty of these items, feel free to sledge, trudge or frolic your way to the shops, by simply sliding your curser over the picture and click to reveal even more glorious pictures!

Fruity Beginnings

February Fruitcakes!

February is going to be a fun and fruity month, the February Fruitcakes daily listing challenge club is well under way and we all ready have sales on the collective tally, how cool is that!

I have also been accepted onto Pinterest and am finding it very addictive, pinning wonderful creations from fabulous crafters and artisans all over my boards, and have already noticed that it has been rewarded with additional views to my shop, so hopefully is working for the other sellers too, if so this is defo the way to go to drum up interest and give support to fellow Fruitcakes!

If anyone wants to see my Pinterest boards, I can be found here:

Fruitcake Plate full of Goodies!

So do you fancy some fruitcake?  Well here is a selection to whet your appetite, please just remember that these are just fruitcake slices, the rest of the cake can be found by clicking on the picture.

I hope you have enjoyed your slice of fruitcake, but that it has left you hungry for more!

Good Bye Nutters, Hello Fruitcakes!

Good Bye Nutter's, Hello Fruitcake's!

Just saying good bye to the New Year Nutter' Folksy Daily Listing Club and a big Hello to the February club, which had a landslide vote for the name, February Fruitcakes!
