Lucky me...

There is something so exciting about a parcel don't you think? Are you like me and get those butterflies in the stomach? Even when you know it is on the way you still can't quite believe it really is for you...yes I know I live a quiet life...ha. I was so lucky to win these beautiful photos from the lovely Julie at Being Ruby. Julie is such a sweetie that it was meant to be only one photo. She can't count and I got an extra one...ha. I love this image so much. It is called "Fly Boys" and to me it is so Australian in a romantic, last century way. I am on the hunt now for just the right frame. It is so special to have a little piece of "Ruby" in my home to treasure.

I was also the lucky winner of this fabulous iittala candlestick which was generously given away by the super stylish Brismod at Fun and VJ's. Perfect for my Christmas table don't you think? Here he is greeting his Swedish friend that lives in my hall,

and also his new friends who hale from Germany. He is settling into his new home and is very happy brismod and it was also lovely to have an excuse for a catch up. Thank -you so much again xx.
