I still can't believe it: my first entrance to a give-away
and I was among the winners!

Thank you so much Princess Threeways
and Ingrid from Ingthings

May be when I reach 100 followers
although it seems to be cliché
I might organise a give away myself...

 a wonderful package, a great book and lots and lots of buttons, ribbons, yarn and 2 origami folded birds!

 some of my favorite buttons ~ although hard to select ~ and an example of how to embroider drawings

more lovely bottons and ribbons, pearl buttons ~ pearls are among my favorites! ~ and these great reds

I am so lucky ~ smile ~ .....


  1. Ik dank jou! voor je aardige woorden en mooie foto's. Zo ziet het er wel heel gezellig uit!

  2. I know just how you feel...recently I won my first entered drawing and won. Congratulations to you....Isn't it fun! I don't think I will ever reach 100 followers, but like you if so I will have a drawing...I will watch for yours!

  3. wat een prachtige collage met allemaal van die schatten lijkt wel een prachtig rovershol, groetjes Irma en een heerlijk weekend

  10. Lucky lucky you! What a great surprise! Enjoy all your ribbons, buttons, threads and other bits and pieces. By the way, got some porcelain pens. I will get to work with them any day now, trying it on some old cups I have from IKEA. Exciting.
