Last week I had a very nice surprise in the post from the lovely Ladies at SPELL. A beautiful dream catcher and a feather ring. I have been a big fan of their products and their stunning photography for a while now and even posted Lizzy's house a while back so to receive such a gift was such a luxury.

I was going to upload some pictures of my dream catcher but cant find my camera - computer cable so have posted a couple of Spells images instead (mine is the Prism dream catcher in the first photo).

So to Lizzy and Spell a big thank you xxxxxx

The Long Road

The thing I love about blogging is finding so many like minded souls. I get comments and emails from so many people with wonderfully inspiring blogs and I think it is about time I highlight a few.  So I would like to start by drawing your attention to two such blogs, run by my favourite male bloggers Keith and Lloyd.

The first is the lovely Keith with his blog the flying tortoise, I thoroughly recommend putting some time aside to brew a coffee, sit back and scroll through his blog. The post above is inspired by Keiths post on the same book Rolling homes by Jane lidz (1979).

The second is a blog owed by Lloyd Kahn (the editor-in-chief of Shelter publications). Lloyds blog is marvellous and has always got some interesting handmade houses/boats/caravans etc... and again is well worth investing some time to have a good scroll.

I have named the post after one of my all time favourite songs, see below.

On the approach to Christmas the what would you like question is one that always stumps me. Well this year I know exactly what I want, I want this book, Woodstock handmade houses or I want one of the houses, either would be good.

p.s. Lizzy this post is a hint :)

Edit..... How weird I have just noticed the linkwithin link suggests i have posted about this book before and forgotten all about it.
