Five Friday Faves + other blog business

*Beautiful packaging
*Gorgeous violets
*Love these windswept coastal photos
*Just ordered this print (via Decor8.)
*Teas for good causes: buy Lifeboat Tea or organise a Twinings/Save the Children tea party.

Other blog business:
*I am reducing the no. of submissions in the straw styling challenge to 2 photos per entrant, as there's been a good response. I'm going to announce the judging panel soon (you can interpret that to mean I haven't asked anyone yet.)

*Last night I went to the Etsy meet-up. Penny Dreadful asked me to pass on any feedback. Well, it was more of a networking event, but there was a stand with Heidi Adnum giving advice on product photography for those of us who can't advance beyond the Auto setting... If anyone would like Heidi's handout, please email me as there are some very useful tips on it.

Events coming soon:
*A 1920's inspired Sunday afternoon musical event hosted by the Golden Afternoon Tea Company (tickets £5, which goes to charity.) There is also a chance to win two tickets here.

So, I'm sure that's too much information for a sunny Friday afternoon - I hope you can make the most of it, and have a great weekend!

Reading this makes me wish I was there in the UK...

Wish I could have been at the Etsy meet up.
Off to have a browse, have a happy Friday. Kx

I was going to go to the Etsy meet up, but couldn't get away from boring chores in time. I would be very interested in Heidi's trips and any other information about the event.
