Winners!!!

It's been more than a little hectic here this last couple of weeks...I totally underestimated how busy my little shop would be this year!

I did find half an hour to decorate the front door though. Earlier this year I was thrilled to find a pair of vintage ice skates at the local church jumble sale for £2.00. As I skipped away the lady behind the table said 'we nearly didn't put those out, we couldn't imagine who would want them'. 
WHAT??
 Anyway - they've been mod podged with a hint of glitter and stuffed with whatever I could find lying around. The only problem is that, as wreaths go, it's v v heavy. Door slamming not allowed 
(even by the moody pre-teen!)
Here are the results of my recent carry it forward/giveaway. The magic numbers were chosen at random by Cleggy - and they correspond to Ellie whose blog is Jelly Jam and Jooles from Sew Sweet Violet.
 Thanks to everyone who joined in - I'm off to let the winners know and will be back with a nice Christmas round up soon!

  1. Oh my oh my! Me? A winner?
    Thank you Cleggy! I would love Topsy and Tim please - they take me back to my childhood.
    How funny, whilst you were posting this I was tying those same white bells round some old toys necks. The skate looks fantastic and will surely make all your visitors smile.
    I'll email you my address.

  12. That is an amazing wreath/frame. I have been on the hunt for an old gesso oval one to redo the front door in...still working on the find. Glad to see such lovely ladies won...by the way I have a house full of three moody teens and this Santa's watching thing doesn't work any longer...thinking of you...smiles..Renee
