  2. hi torie
    i have been looking at your pins and wonder where you bought the lovely thread holder (wirework sewing machine top)? i have never left a comment on your blog before but always read it as it is so informative and pretty. i always look at your pinterest boards too. i often wonder how you have the time and the energy to do all that you do - for example all your home made gifts at christmas time and they look so professional - i liked the lip glosses. you are obviosly a woman of many talents from crafting to cooking and with such an eye for colour - fabulous.

  3. Que bonitas y que ricas. Preciosa la decoraciĆ³n. Un saludo
