I was so lucky to win this Giveaway
over at Linda's blog 'HeARTfully Inspired'

I just love this beautiful piece of art
in the form of a house.
It has so many different elements.
Linda also gave me two
blank houses to play with!

I adore this little piece of
French toile - chickens are so appealing!

and this piece which will be a lovely
addition to my French journal
maybe I'll use it on the cover!

Thank you so much Linda
I love everything in your parcel!!

Look at this LACE!!!!
March must have been my lucky month
as I won another Giveaway
over at Riitta's lovely blog here

You all know how much I adore
lace right?  I was thrilled to find
these pieces in Riitta's parcel

PLUS this gorgeous DOILY
(I'm a doily collector too - specially
lace ones)!!! 
Riitta's stash included buttons too!!
Sorry it was a grey day when
I took these photos.

These sweet cards are
Riitta's own design,
they are perfect for my
darling granddaughters!

Thank you RIITTA for making
my day!!!
