Spring Delights and the Winner!

Many thanks to all the lovely people who entered my giveaway- you brightened my weekend with your kind, sweet words! I wish I could give something to each and everyone of you... drawing a single name from the hat is the sad part of giveaways for me.

But it has to be done! So...
The winner of my original watercolor is...
Meredith of Mereknits!
You'll receive also one of these cotton hearts I made with love.

And I decided to have a second winner...
Jane of Blondie's Journal!
You'll receive one of my lilac hearts as well.
Ladies, please email me with your mailing details and I will send your prizes along to you asap!
And speaking of things I recently made (in my spare minutes!), apart from hearts, this fabric with stunning lavender flowers was so pretty that I had to make something for my furbaby too! So Kim has now a new bed cover and stuffed bone :)

It looks like the number of "lilac"things is steadfastly increasing in my home. For my birthday, I received this bunch of stunning tulips!

... and treated myself to this beautiful scarf (80%off)! I love love love it!

Peeks of my worktable over the past two weeks, lilac first, yellow now! I always have fresh flowers on my desk, they inspire me! They don't have to be expensive, even a posy of violets or wildflower can brighten my day!

And finally, daffodils are blooming everywhere! These are my Mom's.

Have a happy week ahead!
