I received Diana's giveaway prize today, which was a visual feast from the moment I opened the outer envelope. I love her pared down, simplistic style; the fact she used all recyclable materials to present and pack her lovely handmade cards and notebook that lay therein. The cardboard the goodies were attached to will doubtless be taken by the children for their crafting, as will the thread that was used for wrapping. And the contents, of course, will be treasured by me! Her work is so beautiful, she really should get some up for sale so everyone can experience this. Thank you so much Diana - and Walter of course, for taking the trouble to go to the Post Office too!
And more goodness came recently from Jo, in the form of her liebster blog award, which celebrates blogs with fewer than 300 followers. Do you remember when you first started your blog? How you got really excited when someone came to comment and then even more so when they came back a second time? Jo's just starting out with her lovely flowering cherries blog, so do go and say hello. Thank you Jo.
I've been tagged already quite recently, so wasn't particularly keen to do another this soon but the liebster involves no work, other than to introduce who it came from and then to pass it on to a further 3-5 bloggers. I'm going to send all my nominations across the various seas, to -
I really enjoy popping over to see what craftiness and dressmaking they've been up to and really, what strikes me is that no matter where in the globe we belong, we all like pretty much the same things.
Happy Thursday x
