So how amazed was I when I logged in & saw that the lovely Rebecca had left me a comment to tell me that she had picked me for a Beautiful Cherry On Top Blogger Award! (She has amalgamated the Beautiful Blogger Award with the Cherry On Top Award)! I would like to pass it on to the following 3 as I think that they are all beautiful blogs… 1. Kisses and Cross Stitches…. 2. Holy Comfort! & 3. Postcards from Dreamland. Thank you Rebecca it is so nice to get these! Speaking of other bloggers, todays photo colourfest is for Chelsea (favourite colour = purple on lime green) & Alex (favourite colour = yellow) hope you enjoy it girls! My second proudest moment this week (after getting theses awards of course!) was on Thursday evening when I cooked dinner for Mr J. He loves meatballs & I found a great recipe for Moroccan meatballs so I had a go & they turned out yummy! I served them with cous-cous stuffed peppers & a salad of Rocket, Watercress, Parsley & Coriander. The meatballs themselves were simply minced lamb, garlic & parsley but I simmered them in tinned tomatoes, ground cumin, ground coriander & cayenne pepper with more garlic (I love garlic!) & fresh coriander & they tasted great. So so simple & Mr J was over the moon! I could almost be a Domestic Goddess 😉 PS. To celebrate my surprise award I’m going to have a surprise giveaway! I shall pick a winner from those of you that leave a comment on this post to receive a surprise bundle through the post… Good Luck! xox

Today I need a little bit of Sunday Sweetness…. It was grey, cold & rainy when I set off to work, disaster struck when the gas turned off at work & then I got home to discover that I have lost 3 hours worth of work that I did Friday night… GGgggggggrrrrr!!!! It’s all OK though because I only have 2 days left before I’m on holiday & now I’m home in the warm with Mr J who is cooking roast Lamb 🙂
No. 1 is another piece by the very talented Anarkitty
(can you tell I’m a huge fan?!) I just adore her big eyed, brightly coloured, pierced girls who all have fabulous hair! They are so beautifully done & captivating.
2. Love this picture… Mr J thinks she looks like an elf! I saved this from a blog post I read recently
but I confess to not remembering which one ( i read over 70 blogs!) so if it was yours I’m sorry… drop me a comment & I’ll link up! here
!!!! Thank you Lulu!
3. Button bouquet. I found this one day when googling ‘bouquets’ on Google Images. It’s gorgeous! I’d quite like to have a go at making one myself one day. Does anybody recognise the work? I’d love to know who made it.
4. Blythe dollhouse… how cute?! Another one I have saved on the pc so not sure where I found it. Whoever the lucky owner is they also have a Jasmine Becket-Griffith
print on the wall & I love her work too. I’m not sure what it is about big-eyed art but it has definitely stolen my heart.
5. Gorgeous Michi Girl page. Michi Girl is the work of an Aussie collaberation but the artwork is by Kat
McLeod who I am a huge fan of! I love that she uses fabric to make the dresses for her artwork. I did a collage last summer inspired by her work & it turned out really well. I’m planning on doing some more this year when my work schedule settles down.
6. I love this piece by Natasha Law
. Her work is so simple yet intimate.
7. I love these shoes! Source unknown.
8. Gorgeous owl, source unknown. Why do we all like owls so much? Is it because they seem so wise & mysterious?
Happy Sunday xoxox
