Rustic Country Giveaway Win

A few weeks ago I was the lucky winner of a Giveaway by Suzy at Rustic Vintage Country blog but have only just had a chance to say "Thankyou Suzy!" and to show you all the beautiful and diverse handmade goodies she made.

Can you see that wonderful paper butterfly perched on the lavender bags?

Suzy is very talented at making unusual decorative items from paper, so do check out her blog and on-line shops.


There were some wonderful chunky painted wood tags stamped with Christmas messages and perfect for adding to presents under the tree...........

......a beautiful fluffy ice blue and white crochet brooch.......

....some gorgeous lavender scented sachets printed with lavender.....

....the cutest little birdy ........

.....and a beautifully made crochet bag - the flowers are amazing!



Thankyou Suzy!

There is something so special about handmade gifts and items that far outweigh mass produced and poor quality, carelessly made goods. Give me "handmade" any day!

On the subject of which there is another post coming up very shortly about the Xmas Fair I attended at the weekend, so stay tuned!

I also have several weeks worth of your posts to catch up on, so apologies for not having visited for an age - I'm looking forward to enjoying an evening or two of blog-hopping around the world!

Just off to pour a glass of cold wine first though  ;)
