friday favourites

If you noticed my new cushion a few posts back,
then you'll want to know where it came from right?
 Well I struck it lucky when I won Annettes giveaway
over at My Rose Valley one of my favourite bloggers.
 There really is nothing like a blog parcel!
Thankyou Annette I love everything!
Annette knows my penchant for fabric and threw in these lovely florals...
and a cute tin heart which is hanging next to my new santa decoration.
He came from Finland via the Winchester Christmas market.
So it seems I am developing quite the taste for Scandinavian homestyle
as Annette is from Sweden, although she lives in Swizerland.
Hopefully then my little home made swedish gift will 
get a gallop on and arrive with Annette for Christmas.

I have had a wonderful year of giving and receiving gifts from around the world.
It really has been a great experience, did you know that a parcel from the UK
takes roughly 1 week to arrive in the US and a couple more for Australia!
My word for this year was to connect with people, 
my word for 2013?

ps.
I have opened a facebook page 
please take a look if you fancy a chat!
