Home Sweet Home


This week by coincidence two of my work colleagues became home owners for the first time.  I saw some nice mugs with 'Home Sweet Home' written on them at the weekend - to jazz them up a bit I cut out some flower shapes and stuck lollipops through them to make a 'bouquet' of flowers to put in them.






And in a further burst of creativity I made some 'New Home' postcards for each of them.  I don't have much novelty fabric but I am a sucker for anything with houses on - which came in handy. 

I must apologise because I think I've been coming up as 'no-reply' on comments on other blogs.  I don't know why this is - I haven't changed my profile for years, anyway, I've put it right now.  And another thing ... am I the only one who has to put their Google password in twice when they are commenting on blogs?  Seems like blogger doesn't recognise it when I put it in the first time and I always have to enter it again.

Gorgeous postcards!

I occasionally have to enter my password more than once...not sure why, just one of those blogger hick-ups

Your lollipop bouquets are fantastic! Do you mind if I borrow the idea? The postacrds are marvellous. Not sure why Google is giving you grief I'm afraid. Have you tried their Help section? Happy Mothers Day, Ann :-)

What wonderful, thoughtful gifts! I love the pretty house cards.

Blogger has been driving me crazy. On some blogs I have to enter the password twice. On others, I can't comment at all if I'm on a certain computer. I'm wondering if it has to do with the version of blogger that they're on or something??? Anyway, you're not the only one with problems -- I'm heard lots of other bloggers saying the same things. I think everyone should move to wordpress. ;-)

Love those cards you made. I think the mugs with the lollipop flowers are very clever.
