Beautiful gifts from both near and far




Earlier in the year I was the very lucky winner
of Barbara's beautiful giveaway
as part of Vicki's Grow Your Blog Party.
Barbara has a lovely blog called
Barbara Lilian in France
please visit her blog to get a taste of living in La Belle France! 

I'm very late with this post
I can't believe where the weeks and months have gone...
Barbara I'm so thrilled I entered your giveaway
and even more thrilled that I was the lucky
winner - thank you!



I was 'over the moon' with everything in your parcel!
everyone knows how I love lace...
Also in the parcel were two pretty note cards
with daisies hand painted by Barbara...
a little bag of lavender she grew
plus more cards, a calendar and heaps of lace!!!


To top it off Barbara lives in a little village
in France just like my family!

 MERCI Barbara xox



Not quite so long ago
I was the lucky winner of Julie's
Peace Angel Giveaway.
 She arrived in a parcel with more surprises!
Two bags of Julie's wonderful lavender,
a special Threadbear Cottage gollywog note pad,
gardener's soap and a fragrant sachet to pop in my drawers!


 Julie has the gorgeous New Zealand blog
My Threadbear Life
She lives on a farm where she has created
a wonderful country garden, open for visits.
 She creates beautiful things to sell in her shop
Threadbear Cottage.
  THANK YOU JULIE xox

Take care and

be kind to one another



  Merci à bientôt

Dearest Shane,
Congrets on winning those great give aways.
Oh I'm very much like you; can't keep it all up with posting things timely! Time is really slipping through our finges isn't it? Almost half the year gone and we seem to have less and less time to do it ALL in a timely manner.
Sending you hugs and blessings,
Mariette

Lovely gifties - and given to a very deserving person! Wee dolls are next 'up' on my agenda so it was a treat (and inspiration) to see these.

I love lace too. Congrats on your winnings.


I made four albums for friends out of lace and one lace and cloth inside.
