Hi everyone! How are you?
Look who we saw up a tree today near our house today! Isn't she sweet? We don't see that many koala's around Daylesford so this was a special event!
It's all very Christmassy this week, the streets are quieter, and the general vibe is more relaxed, I think we are all starting to wind down. One of my favourite parts of Christmas is the Daylesford Brass Band who play carols for us every year, right outside our house! How fantastic. They travel in a bus all around the area, stopping randomly to spread some Christmas cheer.
Guess what? Today is the day to pick out some winners from my giveaway! Woo hoo!
I just loved reading about everyone's childhood toys, so many gorgeous stories about beloved friends.
Each time I thought I had a favourite then another would come along that stole my heart.
Giraffes, monkey's, teddies, dolls, a red donkey, doll houses, a camel,
so many beautiful memories of childhood. It was lovely to read too, that most people still had their toys. Boy would I love to see some photo's!
Moving right along....lets get ourselves some winners! Thank you all so much for entering and sharing your stories with me, I wish I could give you all a bunny or a doll! First cab off the rank is the lovely Tea Pea, who told us about her doll, Sparkle Eyes. Tea Pea had won the red & blue bunny! Yay! Tea Pea honey you will have to contact me as I can't access your email. Then we have gorgeous Jennie from A Little Vintage who has won the grey bunny, congratulations Jennie! And lastly, I'm excited to say that Jenniejen will be receiving a Susannah doll, well done! I will email you all and send off your new friends asap.
So there you go, another giveaway done & dusted and another year almost gone. I'm looking forward to 2011, I'm sure there will be many new adventures for us all. For me it will mark the start of a new life as Rosie begins school, just as Charlotte finishes. I'm not sure what I will be doing yet but I'm happy to take the summer to think about what direction my life will take. Thank you to everyone for all their comments over this year, I really love to read every one, to me you are all winners. Whether you are celebrating Christmas or not I hope you get to enjoy some happy times with your loved ones, because really that is what it is all about. Much love to you all, see you soon xo
