I'm such a lucky duck

I've had an embarrassment of riches since I started blogging. Mostly the lovely friendships made and inspirations gathered out of the blogosphere...but I've also scored a few give-aways as well...which makes me feel very lucky.
I've already shown you these fabulous coasters from A-M won at the launch of her wonderful new Cape Cod Designs blog. 
And then yesterday in the mail came these beautiful cards from Nellie at McCarthy Designs...who's off on a wonderful holiday in New Zealand as I type. I can't wait to see the photos from that trip if these cards are anything to go by.
And blow me down with the proverbial feather, last night I won this gorgeous Buyster Rovan ball lamp from Charlotta at Space for Inspiration...which is going off to live with the first born...who I know will love she has a thing for lamps. Have no idea where she might have got that from!!

I feel really lucky and very blessed, so thank you so much to these wonderful women, who all have something in common...they're super nice (and I'm one of those people who think 'nice' is a compliment not an insult!); they are very stylish, and like all the best people in this bloggy world...they share. Not just design, but themselves as well...and that I really like.  So...if you haven't been to their sites, scoot over there right now and introduce yourself...I'm sure they'd love it. And so would I.
Now...I'm off to do some more on silver leafing that chair of mine...I should have just stuck to listening to a Silverchair CD quite frankly! Is this a tedious project? Oh yes...I'm afraid it is!
p.s. Ben had a lovely birthday yesterday and wanted me to say thank you to everyone for their kindness. His words "wow mum, those people are really nice aren't they?"...oh yes, you are :)


  1. You are indeed a lucky thing! Could you please send some of that good luck my way!

    Have a fabulous weekend and best wishes,

  2. As I have been told Kerry, lovely things happen to lovely people! You my dear have loveliness in abundance. Congrats on all of your gorgeous giveaway gifts, they are all fantastic!! Good luck with the silver leafing, it is looking amazing so keep going and as my hubby always says to me 'Just get 'er done!':) Enjoy and I am so looking forward to seeing the big reveal:) ~ Tina xx

  3. You are now officially banned from entering any competitions for the next 6 months! Seriously, I second Tina's comment, it couldn't have happened to a nicer person. The chair is looking good, can't wait to see it all finished. Silver leafing is fun huh? It can be temperemental at the best of times. Oh, and you'll be finding little silver sprinkles all over the place for months! K xx

  4. Chair is looking great Kerry. Can't wait to see the fabric you put on it. Most people would start silver leafing on a small project but you go all out! Will be lovely to see the finished project. Have a great weekend.

  5. How deserve it for having such a beautiful blog and sharing so much of yourself with others...that chair looks like hard work..can't wait for the will be stunning. Have a lovely weekend..I'm off to do some thrifting :) My favourite pastime. Kym X

  6. Wow I can't wait to see how your chair turns out. What an amazing project to take on Kerry. Looks fun! And how lucky you are indeed winning all those lovely goodies. Have a lovely weekend. Amanda xx

    P.S Place on rug anytime - and even a glass of wine too if you're a good girl.

  7. wow how lucky you are you deserve it...looking forward to see how your chair turns out...

  8. Well done Kerry. The lamp is great, your firstborn is a lucky one to have that coming her way. Enjoy your spoils. And keep up the good work on the chair, it looks excellent so far!

  9. That is going to be one sparkly chair!! I know those sort of projects ...the 'what have I got myself into ones.' congratulations on reaching 100 followers and even bigger congratulations to adorable son for his birthday. Never say 'pigs fly' then, hey?
    Love your world


  10. You've really scored lately!! All very well deserved :)
    Looking forward to seeing the chair and I must say, I often think that about my bloggy friends - you ARE all so friendly and sweet!

  11. Silverchair, is that right? You dark horse..I was just showing my un-lameness to my youngest stepdaughter the other night when I pulled out a few of my old rock/punk/goth/indi CDs - music that she currently thinks is cool! Which makes me cool...ha ha..Rxx

  12. Oh look at all your lovely goodies... well done you... your shot of the coasters is better than the one I originally had in my shop. Are you interested in doing some stock photography?!! Can't wait to see your chair creation! A-M xx

  13. Oh WOW, Kerry,
    What brilliant giveaways you've won. You are obviously having a lucky streak. I'm coming with you when you buy a lottery ticket and hope some of it rubs off on me !! Mind you, I've won uite a few myself.
    Blogging gives such wonderful rewards. Giveaways, friendship's and some fantastic inspiration. I'm going to have to try a bit of silver leafing !! XXXX

  14. Belated birthday wishes! And I totally agree with you. This community of blogging women (and some men) have bowled me over with their generosity and sweetness. You're on a roll with the gorgeous wins!

  19. Wow! You are lucky! I have found everyone in blog land to be incredibly kind and generous too! It gives me even more faith in the goodness of humanity.

    Congrats on your recent prizes!

  20. I am so happy you won the lamp Kerry, and I think it is so sweet of you to pass it onto Jess. Can't wait to see how it looks at her place!

    That is great that Ben had a fab birthday and that he got all our wishes. He's a good boy and I hope he proves that in excess on Sunday next week!! :)

    Lots of love,
    Charlotta xx
