The Winner Is... And I'm Sick!

Hello everyone... I'm sick! :( I'm struggling with a bad tonsillitis and pharyngo-laringytis with fever, horrible (and I mean that!) sore throat and no voice at all!! You bet I feel so bad :((( but I know that a smile can brighten my (and my dear ones') day! Boy it's hard, but I try.

As for my giveaway, I wish to thank all those who entered. I won't decorate at all this year (and this is a bit sad for one who loves Christmas!) but will live vicariously through you! Thanks for taking the time to share your colors and decorations with me!
Now back to the winner, I know you are waiting anxiously!;)
... Drumrolls please...
... the winner is...
 # 24, Dyche Designs!

To spread more cheer, Kim and I decided to pick other two winners, that will receive a pink tartan heart made especially for them! (I actually have to make the hearts, and as I'm sick and with the Christmas deadlines approaching very fastly, I will ship these after the festivities, just in time for Valentine's Day!).

#1 Claudia
#20 It's Me

Hope this will make you smile!:)
Please let me have your snail mail addresses, ladies! 
Will be back when I'm a little better with more about England and my finds and treats, and after that a few of my creations (old and new) for the festivities. Oh I meant to say all is covered with a white blanket today... the first snow of the Season has arrived!
Have a happy day!

  1. Congrats to the winners! I do hope that you will recover from your tonsillitis etc. soon. But I alas am trained in these deceases too, once with Christmas :-( The good thing is that you will probably all right then, just look it at the bright side.) I'm having a cold and a soar throat as well, hope this is just one or 2 days and not the beginning of something like you have, just keeping my fingers crossed and taking some oranges in a moment.
    I'm wishing you all the best!
