Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

With silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row...

I've managed to drag myself away from Merlin the puppy and get on with some blogging.  He's sleeping next to my feet so I haven't had to drag myself very far.  As there's not much going on in my life this week (watching Olympics, training puppy, mummy duties...) I thought I'd go a bit random with today's blog, so no story to accompany this one.  Just lots of pretty handmade goodies.
