Thank You!

A friend of mine dropped by for a cuppa yesterday afternoon and surprised me with this stunningly perfect bouquet of roses, all picked from her beautiful cottage garden. They are heavenly and just make me want to sigh - too gorgeous for words.....

I had an amazing response to my website update yesterday and so wanted to thank you all for stopping by and for all of your kind and supportive emails. It is always humbling to sell a handmade item, to think that someone appreciates what you have worked on and that you have put a piece of your heart into (not literally of course! hehe) Such a confidence boost too, when sometimes doubt creeps in or life throws up things to test you.
I have been wrapping, packing and taking your parcels to the Post Office today - I do hope that you will be pleased with your purchases and thank you once again.
Enjoy the roses,
Niki x

  4. Amazing roses! If that's a bunch the whole garden must be enough to make a girl swoon! xx

  5. Those roses are stunning!!!

  6. The roses are beautiful. I have lots in my garden in those colours at the moment but so far I haven't been able to bring myself to cut them. Perhaps a small posy for the weekend? As usual I was too late looking at your website and the things I loved were already taken! Perhaps one day I'll be lucky. I know we all have doubts about our work from time to time, but really, yours is always so beautiful you should never lose confidence.
