I won again!

I can't believe it. I have won again!! If only the luck had stayed through to last night's Euromillions...

As part of House of Pinheiro's International Craft Swap, Rachel is doing a few nautical inspired giveaways. The first of these was a chance to win one of 3 nautical inspired badges/brooches made by Jo at Adventures and Tea Parties:

I thought they were all lovely, but went for the boat, as I had to pick one! I then completely forgot all about it, till catching up with Rachels' blog the other day, spotted this little photo:

Yay! I won the boat brooch!

The brooch duly arrived on Thursday, and conveniently interrupted a Small Boy tantrum, his nosiness curiosity greater than his annoyance at not getting his own way.

It came in a lovely little ring box, tied up with some pretty two-tone string. Don't little touches like this make all the difference?

I wore it all day yesterday, suitably matched with a nautical striped top. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic, as last night I was helping prepare for today's nursery Easter Fair, and then was baking for said Fair until 10.30 last night! Damn, should have taken some photos of my lovely Little Lemon Drizzles and my Raisin and Oat Cookies, to show you!

Anyway, here is the brooch in the flesh, modelled on me today. Less relevant to the outfit, but you can see my  new"I don't care it keeps snowing, I'm wearing my Spring wardrobe anyway" sweater, bought at a recent Boden party!

Cute isn't it?

  1. Such a cute little badge. Congrats on winning! I've had a wee nosy at Jo's wares and I'm in love with her typewriter badges.
    And I really like the colour of your spring sweater. Maybe if we all start wearing our spring wardrobes it'll stop snowing :)

    1. Thank you. Yes, the typewriter ones are gorgeous. And looking at her Not on the high street page, I'm guessing she also came up with the Craft Swap button!

    2. PS. Let's hope so re the snow! I have never craved spring so much in my life!

  2. Congratulations on your win - I was also a winner of the anchor badge! Can't wait till I see it - your one looks beautiful on your sweater.
    Off to have a little peek around your blog...J

    1. Oh cool! I'm guessing from your profile pic above that you are based in Oz, so I guess it'll take a little longer to reach you. Can't wait to see yours too! The anchor badge was a really close second for me.

      Off to have a little peek around *your* blog now too! :)

  4. I thought that might have been you when I read Rachel's post - congrats! I agree with you on the spring part. We're supposed to have snow again tomorrow. Someday spring will actually get here.....

  5. Oh they are totally darling! Congrats on winning xx

  6. That's such a sweet little brooch - congratulations on winning!


I love to hear from you!
