I've won a prize!

I'm a runner up in Jane @ Applique's recent giveaway. It's my first blog giveaway prize and I'm delighted!

It arrived this afternoon. Out of the padded envelope slid this little packet wrapped in deep turquoise tissue paper...

...and inside were these wonderful gifts - one of Jane's new range of Tudor Rose brooches, two hair clips and a bar of Thornton's chocolate. Such generosity, it made my day!

Lovely. I just need to get myself a nice jacket to wear it with now! It rather showed up my old brown cord one I normally wear at this time of year (that is when it's not raining - my practical but extremely boring grey waterproof has been getting a lot of wear recently, though the weather is now sunny again and due to remain so for the weekend - hurrah!).

A kindly modelled the hair slides for me.

She put them in herself as you can probably tell, and they stayed in till she went to bed.

As for the chocolate... gone!
