The Winner is...

Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway of a years subscription to the new Pretty Nostalgic magazine, donated by Sarah. (Due to be launched on May 1st.)
Using a random number generator...
The winner is...
Congratulations Donna - I shall pass on your details to Sarah - I hope you will enjoy the magazine!
Whilst I'm here, I thought I'd quickly share a simple project that I've just completed. I was inspired by an item in this book...
I love the interiors featured in it, particularly in the chapter entitled Nostalgia - There's a surprise!
It was the little stack of vintage boxes piled on a bedside table that caught my eye.

So, taking the two old round boxes that I bought a few weeks ago, I set about making something similar to those in the book.
I used some lovely antique fabrics and luckily had some of the gathered braid in my stash...
A few daubs of glue later...
And they were done!
Auriculars flowering in my garden at the moment.
Have a lovely day,
