Christmas Cards, Gifts and Giveaways Won

Christmas is definitely a time of giving
and just to show you how much bloggers love to give
I'm going to share a few things which have
arrived with the postie in the last little while!

Firstly from Lynne Moncrieff of Adorn at
sent this most elegant card.


I can't tell you how much work has gone into the creation of 
this little sweetheart card!

covered in snowflakes, papers, lace, and a flower
embellished with this beautiful cut out tassel!

Thank you so much  dear Lynne - it's gorgeous!
Lynne makes the most amazing collaged cards and wall hangings
and has the biggest stamp collection that I know of!


From Lynn Stevens (another Lynn)
came this beautiful Christmas decoration

accompanied by this pretty cotton lace.

I was lucky enough to receive this as part of a
most generous Giveaway held recently!
Wasn't that just the sweetest gesture from Lynn!
Thank you again dear friend.


And finally 
I'd like to show you this!
I won one of two prizes given away by Marie at

The contents of 
Fairy Whispers was going to be a surprise for the winner

and it certainly was when I opened the lid of the tin
to discover its contents - including some vintage buttons, a medal,
small assorted trinkets and numbers

as well as beautiful soldered items
all designed and created by Marie herself.

Marie has such a talent for these soldered charms
like no one else I know.  What do you think of
this little Christmas soldered charm ornament

and this little bottle containing a tiny rosebud,
beads and German glitter with
the incredible soldered lid?
Oh Marie I love each one - they are all so beautiful!
and, without having to mention, as Marie knows

that I collect these gorgeous cabinet cards of women,
she has included yet another for me.

Also included were some ephemera pages of
French and German text.
Am I not a lucky girl or what???
Marie I just can't thank you enough for such a gift!

It feels so good to have your luck turned around,
after a pretty hard run this year,
especially by people like Marie, Lynne and Lynn.
I feel so blessed by these women so please go and
pay them a visit by clicking on their links!

Just a little peek at my Christmas vignette which I will
share with you in just a few days time
as Christmas Eve rapidly 
It's a totally candle lit night!

Instead of holly we have gum nuts in our vignettes
because it is a hot dry land here Downunder
at Christmas!

Love and hugs, Suzy

  7. Dear Suzy
    I have to say that I feel the same as earlier this week your most beautiful and serene card arrived. I am sorry I have not managed to contact you sooner (I was struck with another gastric bug) or privately (I don't appear to have your e-mail since I lost all e-mail with my AOL account) but please know your card touched me and your words.
    Lynn and Marie are such lovely, generous ladies who share an abundance of talent, our lives would be less rich without them in our lives.
    I send you a bundle of festive wishes, I surely hope you manage to find peace during such a frantic time of the year and that there are many moments of pure joy.
