It's official, I am a winner!

Of a giveaway, that is!
I have been blogging, now, for 9 months and have entered many giveaways but this is the FIRST one that I have won! You can imagine my excitement can't you!Heleen from Dutch Colours had a pretty giveaway on her blog recently. The gift was a beautiful pink "Valentine Sweetheart" embroidered with little flowers. It arrived this morning and I was thrilled to open this little package.
Not only did she send the heart but all the supplies I would need to make my own heart, some pretty fabric and a lovely card.
Thank you so much Heleen, I love it all!
Some new Shabby Union Jack cushions...after the disaster the other day! They are in my shop now.
And finally, an award passed on to me by "Happy Loves Rosie". I had not come across Happy's blog before but I was delighted at what I saw - lovers of Cath Kidston and vintage delights start swooning!

Upon receiving the Lemonade Award, you also pass it on to other bloggers who you think show great attitude and gratitude.
