I hope your week has got off to a good start.
A special post today to show you something that arrived through the post a few days ago from the lovely people at Josy Rose
How fabby are all of those sequins? .. .. .. and so many of them. Lots of great shapes too .. .. stars, multi-sized circles and squares, snowflakes, stars, crescent shapes and even .. .. yes, you guessed it .. .. lovely little hearts LOL!!!
The bag even includes little glittery bits that fall from the sequins when they are punched. Might have to order some of that as I think it would look lovely on my tables at the wedding fayres! I always steer clear of adding gems and glass bits at the fayres in case a child comes and does something daft with them .. .. but little bits of sequin glitter can't do any harm can it? . .. .. and it will sparkle beautifully.
I don't know about you but I love seeing how things are made and this little YouTube video
here shows you how Josy Rose manufacture their lovely British sequins here in London. The last surviving makers in the UK. That makes my bag of loveliness feel even more special.
So would you like a lovely big bag all of your own? One lucky person can have just that.
You don't need to guess how many are in my bag .. .. because that would mean I would have to count them and I don't think I can count that high!
Simply leave me a comment before midnight on Sunday 22nd June with the words "Yes please, can I go into the draw" somewhere in it and I will put your name into a lucky dip draw. If those words are not in your comment I will assume you do not wish to win the prize .. .. which is fine. I do understand that not everyone loves the same things as I do. Any comments received to this post after midnight British Summer Time on Sunday 22nd June won't be included in the draw which will take place on Monday 23rd June by making good use of the unique Mr Heart!!.
It doesn't matter where you live in the world .. .. Josy Rose will post the prize to anywhere so my overseas blog visitors can join in too. You don't need to make anything or follow any rules .. .. if you love pretty sparkly things then that is enough. Though it would be nice to share the love and let your blog pals know so they can have the chance to win too.
Here is a card I made using a few of my sequins .. .. the centre of the flower looks like a button sequin but I actually used a die to cut one of the larger circles into a button shape .. .. cute or what?!?!?

If you want to see more clearly some of the lovely sequins that could be in your bag then here
is a good place to look at all the different shapes and colours. Good luck if you decide to enter. You certainly won't be disappointed if you are the winner.
Beware though, they are a bit addictive to use and I am finding them all over the House of Hearts. There were four left in the bottom of the bath last night after I let all the water go LOL!!!
Enjoy your day everyone.
