No inky fingers today and Blog candy

Today there was no crafting, No inky fingers and sadly no finished projects. Instead we took the day and went to a antique show and craft show in Whetherby , then walked around the shoppes in town. it was a nice afternoon. Hubby and Belle were very nice and bought me a few pressies. First was a wonderful little book over 100 years old. I love collecting old and rare books so this was a perfect gift.

And the title was perfect. Love it!!!!

Next thing they bought me was a lovely Tea set. I have been looking for one now for quite awhile and this caught my eye. I loved the design and the cups are fab. Not too tiny like some.

And he even got me the tea for one set too. Love love love it!!!

Now it is Blog Candy time. This month I am celebrating 2 years since starting my blog. I cannot believe it has been 2 years already. So I thought I would share it with my wonderful blogging friends. Since it is my 2 year bog anniversary, I will be giving away 2 blog candy prizes each week throughout the entire month of July.
And now it is time to show you this weeks blog candy.

First we have a pack of Basic Grey and Chip stickers to match.
And for the other candy we have 2 12x12 Chipboard shape packs by Fancy pants designs.
They have 3 sheets each. That's 6 12 X12 sheets of shapes.
To be in the draw for either of these prizes just leave me a comment on any post. Comments left from July 1 through midnight July 7. 2 winners will be drawn on July 8 and a new set of blog candy will be posted. To receive additional entries you can post about the blog candy with a link back to my blog, Become a follower or mention that you are already one, leave comments .

I am hoping to be getting a bit inky tomorrow with some more projects and maybe a tutorial, we shall see. Until then I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for taking the time to stop in.

GORGEOUS Tea Set!! I can't make out the title of the book, but it looks like it is in awesome shape for being so old.
Sounds like you had an awesome day!
It has been thunder storming on and off for the past 3 days, and only partly sunny in between, so between that and it being tourist season, I am in the house getting inky! LOL (I'm sure you remember what rt #72 can be like and the shopping areas)

Awesome and generous candy! Thanks for the opportunity
