I was lucky enough to receive 2 awards from ‘Rosy’ of Rosy Inspirations.
Thank you.
Go check out her blog it is beauiful. Another Aussie girl with a beautiful garden full of roses and an equally gorgeous ‘shabby chic’ home.
I would like to pass these awards onto Mandii of Shabby Vintage Mandii.
Mandii has a lovely blog sharing her life and her gorgeous makeovers with us.


Just a sneak peek at what I mailed off to Jessi of Scrappy Jessi for the Parasol and Paper Swap that was hosted by Shannon of Paint Mine Pink.

This swap I did a couple of different things and didn’t quite follow the guidelines to the letter.

I hope Jessi likes her goodies
