almost a year old!

When you live on an island as small as this one, sometimes it's very hard to find gifts for specific occasions.

And when those gifts need to be sent by mail, then the possibilities are even less because you just can't mail everything- well you pretty much can depending on your budget for both the gift and the shipping!

My Godson Julian is turning 1 at the end of May, so in order to get ahead of the mail time, I need to find him a present and mail it asap.

Been looking for a few days now but it looks like I finally found something that I think is special, useful and that would last him for a few years...

I bought him this... a Bunnykins Set of bowl and matching spoon.

Isn't it cute? I figure that at age 1 you don't really mind exactly what people get you for your birthday, but having something like this set, could last him for a long time and be his own special serving plate for years to come.

Now I just need to find a nice, cute card to go with it [although it's not like he'll read it] and then is off to the post office to send it, hoping he will get it on time!

stop that door...

Meet the newest addition to our clan, this is Cyrano.

He is a brave little mouse that as of this weekend guards the front door of our room.

Isn't he cute?

But why the name Cyrano, you might ask?

Well, he is named after the famous "Cyrano de Bergerac", mainly because when I was crocheting the nose [quite late in the night] working with black yarn is hard when it's not full light, so the end result was a larger than expected nose, LOL!

This was a fun, easy weekend project and now that I told my Mom about him, she wants two for her house...

I think I will make them but mail them to her "empty", so once she gets them, she can stuff each one with rocks or even beans to make it heavy enough to hold the door.

By the way, this is a free crochet pattern via Lion Brand website, but the only requirement to access the pattern is by signing up and be a member of the site... To see the pattern and get all the details click here.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

spring WINNER giveaway

After 4 wonderful days off, I am once again convinced that someone, somehow and somewhere messed up the set up of the week.

I think the week should be; instead of 5 working days and 2 weekend days, at least 4 business days and 3 weekend days. Doesn't that sounds better?

But, don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, but simply stating the fact that my body and mind feel much better after this short hiatus of 4 days!

Now today, it's off to better things (besides work), which is reveling the winner of my latest and biggest attended blog giveaway, yet.

But, before I get to the actual winner, I would like to thank everybody that sign up and those who shared the information with others, thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

And one last thing before I announce the winner, is that over the weekend I decided to add a little extra to the bag, so the winner will get the handmade crochet hand bag plus a matching ladybug key ring!

And now... [insert drum roll here].

Chosen by RANDOM.ORG "True Random Number Generator", the winner is:


Desiree is one my new followers (thanks to the giveaway), so I hope she and everybody else sticks around for the next one...

Thanks again to all those that participated!

Have a great Tuesday : )
