Two weeks ago I was the lucky winner of Sylvia's giveaway. She sent me this wonderful hand crocheted shawl/ bedcover. As I don't crochet myself, it is doubly wonderful to receive a gift like this. You can see in the photos below how finely it is made and how beautifully it drapes! Sylvia ( lotjes dollshouse ) sure is a multi talented woman!

Yesterday I came back from a week's holiday in London (more on that in another post soon) and found out I had won another giveaway. How lucky is that?! I won Hanna's giveaway (Miniature Chef), a rustic board with handmade delicacies. Again something I don't do myself, so a wonderful gift to receive. Of course I will show photos as soon as it comes in the mail.

Thank you Sylvia and Hanna!

  23. Hallo Josje,

    Wat een prachtige pioenrozen. Heb je die ook zelf gemaakt? Ik wil ze ook zo graag maken, maar de moed ontbreekt me nog. Dat scheerapparaat is super.
    groetjes, Annemieke

  24. Dank je wel Annemieke. Sorry voor mijn late reactie, ik was met vakantie.
    De pioenrozen heb ik gemaakt met een kitje van Variaatjes http://www.variaatjes.eu/
    Ik heb de bloemen nog wel met verf bewerkt en de blaadjes heb ik zelf gemaakt, want die in het kitje zitten kloppen niet met de werkelijkheid.
    Groet, Josje
