Hello my dears! I hope you are all having a great week so far and that you have splendid plans for the weekend ahead. Just two days away now and I can't wait as we have some great things brewing!
This past week has been sunny & bright, and generally lovely. Now that Isabella is so much better I can breathe, laugh and smile again! :) And apart from a fab marathon visit to to the amazing Tarronga Zoo, it also involved a really fun dress-up book-parade with the kids, a climb to one of my favourite light houses, solo dinner out with Marshall (at the Victoria Rooms) and a lot of productive work on my final three paintings before we go to Sweden. Yay!
As you know I have also had the great pleasure to run yet another exciting give-away of a US$60 gift card, thanks to the generous and awesome CSN stores. Yesterday saw the close of the entries and I am thrilled so many of you entered. Thank you CSN and thank you all who entered!
Out of the 45 that entered 39 were US/Canadian qualifiers and without further ado I am so excited to announce that one of my longest and most loyal followers & commenters, Monika of 'Splendid Willow' has won this time! I am extra thrilled as this gorgeous Swedish lady is one of the kindest, most generous people you will come across! If anyone deserves to win, it's her! xx
Sorry I haven't got the source for this one other than that I found it on Tumblr. If you know the source, please let me know. Thanks. x
CONGRATULATIONS Mon, I am so very happy you won and I will email you all the details for how to claim your gift credit over at CSN. You will have so much fun shopping over there and I hope you tell us all what you got!! xx
Before I hop off to bed, I thought I'd share a lovely little house tour from Sweden. This apartment has everything you'd expect from my beloved motherland - it's light, bright and white, with gorgeous bones, the roof top views and lots of sunny character. (Having said that, I have no idea what is going on with all the different floor treatments..) Enjoy!
