Two Winners

85 reactions (one double), wow! A big thank you to all of you!!! So nice to read all your comments and to visit so many blogs that I haven't seen before, a little treat for me as well.
And two winners of course:
Number 45, which is Needle work (no blog) and number 14 Christel, congratulations to the both of you! Needle work, could you please send me your address?
By the way, the picture was taken last summer in Sweden.

Poor Blog (+give away)

I've been ignoring you too much these days! Too busy and (as a result from being busy) little inspiration.... Sorry. Nevertheless, I still enjoy reading other blogs and hope for a bit more inspiration soon. Sigh.....
On the other hand, business is doing pretty well and that is a good reason to share a bit of my happiness with you.
Time for a new give-away!!

These ribbons arrived for the shop last week, so very pretty. I love the wooden spools that they are wrapped around as much as I love the ribbons themselves (and the best thing is that I can have them when the ribbons are sold ;).
I will give away one metre of each of these 4 ribbons to one of you (or if there are more than 50 comments to two of you and more than 100 comments, to 3 of you etc.). Just leave a message on this blog before or on thursday, 20th of May and I will draw the lucky winner(s) on friday.

Another Swap

I am starting to be a real Swap-Bot addict and especially the Dutch Swappers group is what I like a lot. I wrote about it before and I really have to show you what I received for the "Kringloop Goudmijntjes" swap. Mission was to buy something from the thriftstore for a maximum of 1,50 euros. Afterwards you could upcycle it if neccesary. And I got this very cute (and eco cotton!) bag, decorated with lovely flowers, made from recycled sweaters and blankets. I am going to put it in my bag and use it when I am in the city to put in my purchases. A good way to avoid ending up with tons of plastic bags.
