GIVE AWAY winner and....rain!!

Do you love rain?  I do.  In fact I love rainy days more than sunny ones.  Is that because we are spoilt for sunny days in Queensland and when we do get rain (which actually happens to be a lot lately) it appears to be somewhat of a novelty (what? you don't like cleaning up muddy footprints for the third time that day??).  Maybe I kinda like muddy footprints.  The sort that you leave at the back door after you pull off your gumboots because you had to dash out to the garden and grab some herbs for dinner.  And it's cool enough to finally enjoy pumpkin soup made by the boys as you luxuriate in a warm, no a hot bath.  And very shortly I'm going to pull the bed covers up and snuggle after months of restless nights in our humid Summer (no air con here my friends!!).

Before that though I just want to congratulate Katherine from The Old Boathouse (who by the way sells fabulous vintage finds also) for being the winner of my last give away for the French Provincial inspired bottles.  Thanks for all those who took part and there will be a new give away shortly.

  1. Oh, I love that photo! Though up here in the Northern Hemisphere I am utterly tired of cloudy skies and snow, and wouldn't mind a bit if you sent some of your sunshine up our way! Summer can't come soon enough for me...
