Oooh, what a day!!
It is so sunny and lovely here in Manchester (no it really is).
I have been inspired this week by many things and I thought I would share an idea, and my happy feeling, with a Springy Thingy Giveaway.
I did this post last year when my blog was a wee fledgling. I enjoyed hearing other peoples favourite things about this time of year. I know it is not officially spring, but there are lambs on the field in front of my house so to me it is damn well near enough.
Whilst searching T'Ebay for 'vintage plastic things', which just so happens to be one of my most bestest pastimes, I stumbled upon this.
I love pretty much everything about it.
I thought to myself....I could make that if I put my mind to it.
Of course, it would be more simple, much like myself. It would also be made of things that I had, or that I could find whilst pottling.
Last night, during a heavy TV viewing session I had a little fiddle (not of the rude kind).
It is but a pilot run, but I think with a bit more fiddling (still not rude), I could make it even better.
What do you think?
So, I feel I should let someone else have a go which brings me neatly to the first part of the giveaway.

I bet you can do a better job than me.
The second part of my giveaway is a pin cushion that I made out of a perfectly nice vintage pot towel.
read about my crime here.
.....and the third part ties in rather nicely as it is actually an un-butchered pot towel.
This is ace!!
......and lastly, but certainly not leastly, are some traditional Oooh Betty goodies

I hope this gets you in a Springy mood :)
The rules are as follows: tell me what you love about Spring,
follow me here or on Facebook, and if you share the link, anywhere, let me know and you will get double dibs.
I hope that is not asking too much. I am trying to be a bit more business like and I won't lie....I want to reach 200 followers. 200 is a good number and it just so happens to be the exact number of random boys socks I have in my random boys socks basket (yes, I do have one).
Thanks for reading, it was a bit of a long-un. x
