Giveaway winner & presents for me!

Firstly, the lucky winner of my little giveaway is commenter number 2 - Joan. Congratulations Joan, once you let me know your address I'll get your bookmark out in the post to you.

Next I thought I would quickly show off the beautiful presents I got in the recent Valentine swap I had with my sisters.  From my lovely sister Thea I received a very cute mug cosy (which is perfect for me as I always forget to drink my tea before it goes cold) as well as some delicious smelling teabags decorated with hearts which have little heart warming messages on :-)

There was also the most beautiful button decorated notebook cover which I'm so delighted with I want to hug it. Can't decide yet what important job I should dedicate this notebook too - I'm tempted just to carry it about with me so I can show it off to everyone.

My lovely sister Liz also astounded me with her gifts. She has recently been trying her hand at wood burning - and this beautiful photo frame is one of her early attempts - isn't it fantastic!


She has also made a beautiful necklace by hand bending wire around beads - however my son ran off with the necklace which is why I don't have it in this photo to show you. There is also a pretty crochet flower which I shall probably wear on a coat or jumper and I'm sure everyone will be envious of it :-)
