Lovely Laura, from Amongst The Oaks, recently held a contest, and I won the door prize. If you do not already know Laura, you must go and visit her immediately. She is a wonderful writer, and takes the most gorgeous photographs, and she's an Anglophile, like me! Scroll down through her past posts to take a wonderful virtual trip to Great Britain. Or just spend some time drooling over her beautiful home and lovely neighborhood in California. Look at this beautiful red transferware dish! Laura obviously knows me well. :)
She also sent me this gorgeous red tassel (her home is filled with tassels), and the sweet little ticking heart, stuffed with fragrant lavender. What wonderful prizes! I love them so much, Laura. Thank you!
Edited to add: OK, I'm not sure about the new header and background color. They're looking a little odd to me. Tell me what you think. Honestly. I may change it back soon, just so I can feel comfortable again. :)
