Violet Posy is Two!

Who’d have imagined that I could ramble and remember to do this for 2 years…..not me that’s for sure!. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Paul, Miss L and Betty for putting up with me blogging away for hours about ‘pretties’ and forgetting to make dinner every now and again. I love you all so much xx

Also as a thank you for all the support and kind friends I’ve made through my blog over the last couple of years I have bit of a special giveaway.  I’ve contacted all the lovely PR’s and companies I’ve come across in the last couple of years and asked for goodies and look what they came up with!  Amazingly kind, thank you to them all x

Because of the nature of some of the items I’ve had to break up the categories in UK and UK & Worldwide and Worldwide – you’ll see why.
