Give-Away Winners, Guest Post & Quatrefoil Mirror On Sale

The host server has been down due to power outage. I know several of you have had problems accessing my blog. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello all. First of all I have to say that I have been very busy (hope to tell you on what soon!) and I feel absolutely terrible that I have not been more supportive of all my blog friends lately. But whatever you do, don’t take it personally, I love each and everyone of you and I will make an extra effort to respond to all of your lovely comments and e-mails and catch up on your beautiful posts. Just give me a tad more time.

Today, you will find me guest posting over at Gaia’s lovely blog Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This is Gaia with Mr. B. (Gaia, I could not resist!).

I met Gaia in my very early blog days and even if we don’t speak all the time, we have fun when we do. I love her Italian style and attitude and hope to meet with her one of these day (and Federica too, whom I met at the same time)!

Hop over and see what things I Go Nuts For right now – here.

Time to announce the winners of my two giveaways. Thank you for all your support!

Drum roll, please..

The Swedish key cabinet goes to Caroline (Absolutely Unique/Patagonia).

And the 6 Swedish crayfish towels go to Suzanne – Privet & Holly.

Congratulations ladies! Please, send me your addresses so that I can have these items shipped off to you. Enjoy!

Yesterday, I was browsing through Ballard Designs catalog (which I must say just keeps getting better and better). This quatrefoil mirror (an ancient symbol of good luck) made me stop in my tracks.

I think it is very pretty and I love the size. It  is now on sale for a mere $119.99! I am so getting it. And doesn’t it look  great hanging on that book shelf!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Fall hugs from Seattle to each and everyone of you!

  • Hey Monika!
    Over the moon to
    have won these
    sweet little crayfish
    towels from Sweden
    and my Swedish-American
    bloggy friend! They
    will have a wonderful
    home and I will think
    of you, Seattle and
    Sweden every time we
    use them! I’m sooo
    loving that mirror,
    too. I’m now going
