I keep alluding to these "wins" I've had... finally I'm going to show you one of them!
I received this a week ago, but was waiting until the weekend to take a picture so I could have a vague bit of light for the photo! During the week it's dark before I leave work, so difficult to take photos in the evenings. So on Saturday I got snapping...
I entered a giveaway on Mary Poppins' lovely blog, and I can't believe I won!! It was such an amazing giveaway - a Jan Constantine 'LOVE' cushion from John Lewis!
Isn't it lovely?! It is really heavy too - no Wilkinsons cushion pad in this baby! - you can really feel the quality! Even the back is gorgeous... I have to keep turning it over to look at it...
As I said to Mary, I am hoping this cushion will bring some love into my home and life!! Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will know that I broke up with my boyfriend, and he moved out, six months ago. So it is definitely time for things to turn around in the love department - I have decided that this cushion is a good luck love charm! (Fingers crossed! I need all the luck I can get!!) :o)
Thank you so much Mary - I honestly can't believe I won such an amazing giveaway!! I really appreciate it!
Oh, and it came with a lovely card - which I am going to frame and put up in the kitchen because it's so pretty!
Thanks again Mary!
In other news, I whipped up some cupcakes yesterday!
Before you start thinking I'm really talented - I didn't make the toppers!! I made the cupcakes, and iced them (rather haphazardly - I mean, look at the one in the bottom left corner - what happened there?! As you can tell, cake decorating is not my forte - I'm more of a cake eater!!) but the toppers were from a giveaway I won back in July, from Sue at The Krafty Cupcake. As you can tell, cake decorating definitely IS her forte! You can see the post showing my winnings here. That was an extremely generous giveaway!
I especially like these two...
Thanks again Sue for these toppers (and everything else!)
I also won another giveaway a couple of weeks ago - but it is a kit, and I want to make it up before I do the post for it... which is why I've been delaying telling you about it! Wow, it seems like a win a lot of things!!! I'm not usually lucky like that at all - most strange!
I also need to post about my blog award, but I've gone on long enough in this post - so next time! I've got the day off today, yay! - although I woke up at 7am which is very annoying!! I'm off to see my lovely friend Anna later, which I'm looking forward to! I'm going to bring some of my cupcakes for us to partake in!
Until next time...
