A Day on the Farm

We had a lovely afternoon at the farm park, feeding goats, being harrassed by peacocks, sliding down large and scary helter-skelters and eating too much ice cream! The sun shone and most importantly, I had a day off work!!

Spending quality time with my boys and lovely husband was wonderful. I felt I just had to let you know how lovely the simple pleasures in life can be! My boys love feeding the 'licky goats' who gently lick the grain (well a mix of grain that looks a bit like alpen but I wouldn't be tempted to add the milk)

All of todays experiences have drawn me to write a late blog about farms and to feature some of your gorgeous creations.

(Sorry the links don't work well/at all - I kept getting the 500 internal server error thing comming up whilst writing this!)

My first listing is from my own shop,
Nothing to do with farms, but I love the Labradorite gemstone featured in this necklace!

My second is this Pig Pendant by Kettle of Fish - stunning and unusual items in her shop - just gorgeous.

My Third is by Konnie Kapow - well drawn by her husband - a very tallented sketch artist by the looks of these fantastic sheep pen and ink note cards. Do take the time to have a look in her shop - it is great!

My fourth choice are these gorgeous hen earrings by Fairly Girly - her shop is full of wonderful jewellery - something for everyone.

Last but not least is this ultra cute brooch by Lynwood Crafts. Her shop boasts a gorgeous display of felted, knitted and embroidered items, including jewellery, purses, stoles and much more. Her work is stunning, so please take a look.

I hope you will take the time to have a look at the work of these very talented folk - sorry about the lack of links here. They all have stunning, individual items, perfect as gifts to very special people or as treats to yourself!
