Well that Leibster Award led to quite a long post and I didn't want to stick this news on the end of it as I may have lost some of you along the way and it's so cool that it deserves its own post.
The marvellously funny Katie from Hook, Line & Sink Her made me her Blog of The Week! I didn't see the email she sent me until after I'd already seen the post and run shrieking into my husbands office with it. Luckily he works from home or that could have been embarrassing.

And I finally got two matching plants for my painted crates!
Yay! Symmetry. And a splash of colour! Not. That's okay. I actually want to live in a White Company catalogue...
