A simple word to describe how our house hold is at the moment.

We are off on our summer holidays on Saturday. We cant wait but I have not yet done the packing. Not a good idea when it's a camping holiday! I have sorted half of my 'to do' list so have given myself a little pat on the back, hence sneaking in a little post which should of been done weeks ago.

A Princess picnic

My scrummy new Greengate melamine which Ella loves!

Gorgeous new Joules picnic bag.

Our first crop of home grown vegetables... delicious!

I am also very pleased as another of our products has been featured in a magazine.

The August edition of The Ideal Home magazine wanted to feature our cupcake drawstring bag. They requested the bag so they could photograph it themselves so the picture is different to ours.

Thank you for all of your lovely comments. I was planning on showing some of the stuff I will be adding to the give away but as you have probably guessed, I have run out of time. I will leave the give away open and will do it once I return from my hols. So if you have yet to add a comment please do so :) Sadly I have not had a chance to check up on every ones blogs yet so a huge sorry for that. I will have a long relaxing look when I'm back.

Warm wishes to you all and fingers crossed for some sunny weather!
