My recent string of good luck continued this week when I was on twitter late on Tuesday evening. I was about to go to bed when I noticed a retweet saying that the 300th follower of the Janet Bell Gallery page would receive a surprise bag of goodies. I recognised Janet's beautiful work right away as I had been given one of her beach hut cards by a friend a while back (as it was so nice I've kept it and was planning on framing it at some point, just not got around to it yet). Anyway, as luck would have it, when I clicked on to her page, it was on 299 followers. It seemed like fate so I clicked 'follow' and yippee, I was the 300th follower!
So earlier today the postman comes knocking and he has brought me my parcel! Inside were so many gorgeous things all wrapped up in turquoise tissue paper, including...
...four lovely coasters featuring Janet's paintings
...and a selection of cards featuring Janet's gorgeous seaside designs
There were also lots of other little treats in the package too including...
...this sweet little badge by Stockwell Ceramics
...this little cutie from The Black Rabbit (love the stripes!)
as well as two gorgeous seaside-y teatowels...
...the lighthouse one is by Charlotte Fleming and the beach huts one is by The English Seaside company
... and last but not least was this pretty candle in a blue and white spotty cupcake case, so sweet!!
As you may expect, I am delighted with all my goodies and am thanking my lucky stars that I did not go to bed early that night;)
If you would like to see more of Janet's lovely work, pop across to her website. I'm sure you will recognise her bright and cheery seaside style and like it as much as I do. You can also follow her on twitter.
Janet's designs have been turned into many different products including cards, prints, coasters, place mats and also these rather wonderful cross stitch kits...
The Janet Bell Gallery is located in Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey, and also stocks the work of lots of other talented artists too including Andy Povey and Hannah Nunn, so if you are in the area, definitely pop in for a visit.
Well that's about it from me today, but I hope you are all having a nice weekend despite the super soggy weather! It has been raining here ALL day so I'm looking forward to having a nice cosy evening in (may even get some grannies done!)
