I must just say thankyou….


I must just say a BIG thankyou to my lovely friend Jacqui in New Zealand! She made me this wonderful bag…isn’t it just divine…!  Do you remember a while back, I created her blog Magpie Chic!  well I really got to know her well, even though she lives all the way over on the other side of the world!

 Amazing isnt it! how we can have friends in other countries, to talk and share things with!…Jacqui is a DIAMOND! a wonderful lady indeed…

….and she liked her blog so much that she sent me this lovely bespoke handmade ‘Big up Blighty’ bag to say thank you to me for creating it!  I was so excited when I opened it…it is sooooo me! She has lovingly embroidered ‘Big up Blighty’ ‘happylovesrosie.co.uk’ and ‘English Rose’ with an actual rose appliqued on it too! there is also lace and buttons and a lovely New Zealand Flag….oh I am soooo thrilled to bits!


Please do go and pay her a visit to find out what a super lady she is 🙂


Love Happy x
