Oh! Goodies!

This year I took part in the 
 for the first tine.

I met all kinds of wonderful people 
and saw all kinds of wonderful things
and entered all kinds of giveaways.

Like this one
at Spiritdog Studios
which was for Chrislyn's blogoversary.

Here are the cutest pictures
of Miss Tiki
choosing the winners.
A job she clearly took very seriously.

I was thrilled to bits to win
a box of craft goodies!

No! Under the paper!

Beautifully wrapped with a blue bow.

And inside?

I was offered a choice
of Chrislyn's lovely photographs
and I chose this one.
It's so elegant and beautifully mounted.

Under the photograph,
more goodies!

And still more.

 Lovely crafty stuff!
I was really taken with the pressed flowers,
the little labels and the apricot lace daises.

Dear Chrislyn,
 thank you so much for your wonderful,

I was thrilled to win!.

Ella was very taken with the blue bow.

In fact, she was so delighted with the bow
 that she insisted on getting some proper clothes,

with panniers and lace.

We're not quite finished yet,
but at least she's not wandering around
in her drawers any more.
