Friday flower and chooky winner.

It's been a big week this week.
I thought it might be nice.

To enjoy the simple beauty
of white flowers.

And old glass bottles.

We bought our house from it's original owners about 18 years ago.

It has some very old trees and old garden beds.
Each time we do a little digging we uncover more and more little bottles.

I soak and wash them and bring them inside.

I play with them,
take photos of them.

It's all good fun really.

Now to announce the winner of the 
Let's go Moerkabout
Chooky giveaway.

I am pleased to announce


is the winner.

Please email me with your postal details and the t towel and cards will be winging there was to you soon.

Thank you to everyone else who entered and a special thank you to those lovely people who regularly comment and make this blog worthwhile.

  2. Congrats to Rebecca! And those bottles have come up a treat, Deb. You've inspired me to hunt some down myself. J x

  3. Oh Wow - how exciting!!! I won. The tea towel will look great in my kitchen as red is my feature/accessory color in the room. Thank you for the generous giveaway, I look forward to receiving my gorgeous gifts. Love the jars - I have found a large box of old agee/fowler/mason jars on the farm this week used for preserving. Currently polishing up to use in the house - will post on these soon. Love your jars, and the white flowers are gorgeous. Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Congrats to Rebecca! Love the bottles Deb and how funny that you are still digging them up. I wonder why the previous owners buried them in the first place? Have a lovely weekend. ;-)
