A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to receive a surprise in the post from Max as part of the Blog Candy giveaway - the rules of which are simple - you have to send something to 3 people who leave a comment on your post. I received some lovely card making goodies, I can't show you as they have already been put to good use! - So thank you Max. So simply, leave your comment and on Sunday I will get each of my 3 children to pick a name out of the hat, the lucky winners will be sent a surprise gift in the post.
I thought I would share with you some of the other lovely things I have received in the post. On the left is a gorgeous doorstop and pincushion which I swapped with Debbie for one of my bunnies - Debbie has just started her own 'shabby chic' online shop - you must take a look, she makes some lovely things. On the right is the lovely skincare I received from Marie Marie makes all her own skincare goodies which all smell lovely - the rose lotion she sent me is already nearly half empty!
Finally, since my blog name is 'Summer by the Sea' I thought it was about time I showed you the lovely beach which is just a 5 minute walk from my house - We were lucky enough to get to the beach twice this week, on Monday and Thursday - both days were really warm and sunny and we had a lovely walk while the boys and Georgia played in rockpools. Filey beach is about 5 miles long and I think it is one of the nicest beaches 'up North'
I have been really crafty this last week and have loads of things to show you, which I will save for my next post, and I'm really excited because Georgia's room finally gets a carpet tomorrow - It may take a week or two to get the room looking exactly how I want it - but I will post some piccies soon. Take care everyone - Natalie x
