Yesterday was a fun day. A magazine came to photograph all around our house. I don't want to reveal too much yet - but I can tell you it's going to be one very colourful and home-made issue if our place is anything to go by!

I made these cushions the night before the shoot to jolly up the sofa, I call them '5-minute cushions' because they literally are!

In the afternoon my package from the Handmade Swap arrived. Yippee - it was full of crafty goodness including a knitted dishcloth, pretty bags, a wallet, brooches, owlie soft toy, an ace apron with cherries and ric rac (and a Cherry Ripe in the pocket!), patchwork scarf and a sweet winter hat. Thank you so much to everyone who was in my swap group, I totally love everything I received!!

Cass has done the best job organising this and I felt quite overwhelmed - I hope my humble little soaps were well-received, I made a special run of them with a cute swap card girl on and wrapped in pretty paper and folksy ribbons.

Rita had a lovely day too, getting lots of attention from the magazine people. She was caught out trying to snaffle the icing from one of the cakes I baked and, when it all became too much, she retired to the bedroom for a long snooze!

You have such a lovely home. I don't think a house is a home without a cat.

I am so thick!!! I've following your blog and going on Lark (shop) and it wasn't until you said those were your soaps that I connected the two. DURR! I LOVE your soaps - I keep meaning to buy some (and will will will) for my girls (i say them I mean me) for xmas.

OOhh - I "know" the soap maker!!!!

Your home looks gorgeous :)
And the swap package is lovely too - i have the red toadstool fabric, and am totally in love with it. :) I'm sure the soaps are well received - they are just too cute!

Your home is lovely! I'm trying to guess which magazine must have come over to take pictures... I'll certainly be buying it if the rest of the issue is half as nice as your house! I found your blog via the Meet Me at Mikes book and really enjoy it :o)
