red gingham, hearts, flowers and gingerbread men ...

Just wanted to show you the contents of a parcel which made a speedy delivery through the post during last week. I must admit to having had one of those senior moments not remembering what I had ordered to be receiving a parcel, so you can imagine my surprise when I opened up and saw all these sweet items. I discovered
Ruby Red Crafts after seeing the little gingerbread men on Rachel's blog Ruby Red and I instantly knew I wanted some, then I discover lots of other makes with red gingham, well then you couldn't stop me, I ordered three of the little men, a set of gingham coasters, a heart gingham pincushion and a hearts & flowers gingham hanger, the little aqua heart came as a gift, great because my colour scheme in the lounge includes aqua white, so this was perfect.

I am not a crafts person, although I would love to have a go one day, especially after seeing what all you gifted ladies are up to, but I do appreciate quality workmanship and these items from Ruby Red are really well made.

They are lovely - so bright & jolly. I'm just going to pop over to Ruby's blog and website now. Stuff 'Strictly Come Dancing'- these look more fun.

I have a bit of a soft spot for gingerbread men.. edible or not .. they are very appealing!
These look good enough to eat.. very sweet!
Yes Louise.. I think you would have enjoyed the fair I went to on Saturday.. maybe I could persuade you and others to come to fair that they hold in April next year.. a bloggers outing!
Arundel is one of those places on my list of 'Must visit"... I know you have plenty of antique shops and equally scrummy curiosity shops!

They are all lovely. I get those moments too and I always glad to hear that others do too!
The trouble is I order too many things from Amazon and Ebay and can easily loose track, unless I think really hard!!
You should have go, they do not have to perfect specimens and you will get a real buzz.
