Keeping Hold Of Those Butterflies! xx

The flowers are for all of you!
As well as anouncing the winner of the chic Topshop scarf/snood giveaway, I wanted to share with you, how fortunate I feel, since I entered this new phase in my life and became part of the blogging community.I have met so many great gals and blog's, I love reading about your hopes and dreams, your lives and your Style.I have even arranged to meet up with some bloggers in the UK, which is really exciting!My only sadness is I don't have the fianancial freedom at present to hop on a plane and visit you, my blogging friend's in Canada, America, Japan, Sweden and Russia and France!
 Yesterday I introduced a sweet small(of 10yrs) friend of mine, who came to visit me, Anna, (she was my flower girl at my wedding) to the world of blogging. As she sat at my computer swinging her legs, eyes like saucer's, delighting at this interactive scrapbook that is blogging (my explanation to her) nodding wisely, as I explained about following and how blogger's comment and post about their lives, she and I went on a whistle stop tour around the world, to some of my favourite blogging destinations, what fun we had!!!

 She left vowing to learn to decorate cupcakes beautifully, makeover an old cardigan, write a poem everyday and perhaps not feel that she can have only one best friend in her life!SOUND FAMILIAR?!! As silly as it may sound, I still get butterflies of excitement in my stomach just before I put a new post up, I think if that feeling of excitement and joy, leaves you, you have to ask yourself why your doing it, whatever your motives


A road to a friends house is never long (Danish proverb)

So I hope you won't be too cross with me, when I anounce the winner of the Topshop scarf giveaway and my first giveaway ever here (many more to come, I promise!) is the lovely Mimi from Bonjour Romance, who chose the blush soft snood, congratulations Mimi, you are a dreamTo me the greatest gift is when someone takes the time to write me a comment, or when I find a blogger, who shares my passions or whose blog captures my imagination and transports me to a new place, another world and of course, new Style!


The winner was selected at randon by my trusted hubby, who does not blog, so has no former knowledge of you lovely bloggers.


Hold onto those butterflies!!

Bonjour Sharon,

Well Sharon - happy to hear from you - my friend Julie lives in Cornwall and she's lived here and sad for me to say ... I haven't seen her in ages. She sends me stamps for my card designs. Perhaps I'll pop in on both of you one day! Congrats to the winner, love the scarf and bonnet, Jennifer

Salutations, I am popping over from the Duchess, who I adore and I often look in on her followers to see if we share sentiments, and I'm glad I've come by you. I enjoyed reading your post it filled me with some inspirtion to continue posting myself, as recently I seem to have dried up a little. Have a super weekend x
