May Day winners and a little vintage show and tell…

Thank you to everyone who participated in my little May Day giveaway…
As always, you've been incredibly kind with your generous comments. So I'm very glad to be able to give a little back to you… in a "broochy kind of way".

CONGRATULATIONS TINA and CHRISTINE!!! You will both receive a completed Waterlily Dreaming ~ brooch, as pictured above. I will message or email you shortly for your address.

Don't despair, if you didn't win this time around. I still have a giveaway up and running over HERE… for 2 "As Roses Bloom" patterns. Pop on over if you'd like to enter.

Recently, we took a little trip into the city to one of my favourite places, l'uccello. I adore browsing through the vintage haberdashery and other treasures. As my husband had taken me to l'uccello especially for my birthday, I was in the very fortunate position of choosing some gorgeous vintage gifts. My haberdashery collecting is quite a new venture, so I was pretty excited, I can tell you!!

I'm planning on framing this pretty card of French press-studs… L'uccello finds2

Except for the 2 on the bottom left… all of the above buttons are glass! Some from the 1930's. The 2 sets at the top are actually a soft pink in reality… I wish you could see just how gorgeous they truly are! I plan on using a few for an upcoming design.

And how I love this little set of needles! I'm feeling very spoilt indeed. Lovely birthday treats for a stitcher.

Until next time,
