prizes all the way from Australia…

it was my lucky day recently to be the winner of Jo Murray’s 100 blog post celebration giveaway

I am not certain how Jo and I originally ‘met’ here in blogland…

life moves so fast …

I do know what a pleasure it is to enjoy her creativity and kindness…

it is quite amazing to be able to trade emails from across the globe …

instant pen pals

blogging really is a beautiful thing…

and speaking of beautiful things…

here is Jo’s brilliant “3 Blooms” acrylic painting that I won…

a perfectly matted ready to frame 4×5″ creation…

Jo said she couldn’t find a Magpie card so she went with the Black Swan….


absolutely perfect for me…

thank you SO much Jo…

here’s to lots more blog posts and friendship…

along with a quote from Don Miguel Ruiz that I find very uplifting as well:

“The best moments of your life are when you are being your authentic self. When you are in your creation and doing what you love to do, you become what you really are again. You are not thinking in that moment; you are expressing. Your emotions are coming out, and you feel great.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz

***there are a couple of giveaways open on my Magpie’s Nest Too Blog…

with two winners being announced on 7 October

and one on 11 October

pop on by and see if there is anything you might be interested in…

I also offer free downloads of vintage postcards there now and again***
