Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was busy but Sunday was by necessity low key, due to having had a bit too much fun at a friends 40th birthday party on Saturday night - I'm so glad I've got the hang of alternating boozy drinks with glasses of water, as I only felt mildly delicate rather than the day long vileness of my youth - Hurrah for growing up!
A favourite blog find of the last week or so is the beautiful dandelion and olive, and true to form there is a giveaway going on at the mo, with a chance to win one of these lovely necklaces, which can be seen along with other gorgeous handmade silver jewellery in their Etsy shop here....
Although I don't feel particularly in need of extra luck at the moment (see previous posts regarding winning giveaways - 3 last week!) I would have to choose the horseshoe, partly because I love the texture of the silver, and partly because my older boy is slightly pirate obsessed, and would snaffle the anchor away at the first opportunity!
I was a bit worried that people might think I was being cheeky entering more giveaways after my winning streak, but several lovely bloggers have sent very encouraging messages, and Col at hello olive thinks I should enter every giveaway and competition going and see how much I can win in a year! So I shall carry on, and will probably find that last week was just a freaky cluster of lucky moments, never to be repeated, which is fine - although if I win the horseshoe necklace it will be a great wearable reminder of just how lucky I feel right now, in many ways.
I don't really know what I expected to find out here in the blogosphere, but I have definitely been pleasantly surprised at what a truly friendly place it is! I am really enjoying discovering so many wonderful creative people, doing their own thing and sharing their creations and the challenges and joys that make up their lives. I hope you enjoy my own little contribution to the blogging universe, if you do and you're not following me already please join me, and when I get to 50 followers I will do a giveaway of my own and you will get the chance to choose a special piece of fabric or two from a selection of colourful mid-century textile treasure.
I hope you have a lovely day, thanks for stopping by!
