CAFÉ DE FLORA and Two Giveaways!!!!

Café de Flore
on the corner of
Boulevard Saint Germain

When I was there I bought this
lovely sepia postcard
and printed it on to muslin
for the cover of my book.

I made it for my cousin's
special birthday

French ticking on the back

Detail of the front cover.

I want to tell you about two
wonderful giveaways
The first is this beautiful
hand embroidered heart
for mother's day
at "Just Lilla" blog

everything that Lilla creates
is exquisite and "to die for"
so don't miss out and
hurry as it will be
drawn this Sunday 8th

The second is a special kit
of wonderful vintage
bits to create with
at 'Early Morning Thoughts'
Nellie Wortman's blog

I'm in awe of the
 extremely beautiful books 
and wall hangings
made by Nellie.
This one will be drawn on
31st May.

I wish you all 'good luck'
but I'm letting you know
I've got all my
fingers and toes crossed
for these two giveaways!!!

Take care
be kind to one another
love life
