I'm lucky in love. Not lucky in winning things. So when i won a giveaway from one of my favorite bloggers
Ted and Bunny i was thrilled. So yesterday  i opened my mail box and found this.

A pink package from the British Royal mail.Sent by Elaine.

Beautifully wrapped with attention for detail. I guess she rememered my new found  love for Yellow.

Inside were two vintage monogrammed damast napkins.I know i am an emotional fool sometimes but this brought tears to my eyes. To receive something so beautiful, packed with so much love and attention from someone you've never met, how great is that :) I know Elaine sells  the most beautiful vintage and antique things  from her website and on E bay

Wouldn't you love to watch Wimbledon now  in this vintage Tennis dress !

But seriously,  please check out her two blogs Ted and Bunny and Sunniestsideup ( about two chickens) and read about her life with " a horse, a cat, two chickens and us"  in the most beautiful part of the Dorset Countryside. It's British humor at it's best.
Thanks again Elaine, you made my day!



  1. Hooray for winning things and receiving lovely packages in the mail! Good for you ~ congratulations!

    You have a terrific Wednesday friend!
