Giveaway winner + gift received

Hello sweet blogfriends,

My computer is back from reparation. A big yay!

Gift received

My goodness, what a happy and most gorgeous surprise there was in my mailbox...

Dearest Suzy of Suziqu's Threadworks has utterly spoiled me. Honestly, look at what she sent me. Many beautiful vintage lace doilies, a piece of beautiful paper and a gorgeous tag she made...

I love love love her work and have been a fan since I started crafting in 2012 and came accross her work and blog while searching for inspiration. And what an inspiration she has given me ever since! She uses the most beautiful pieces of old lace and fabric and old photos and paintings. If you're not familiar with her work, let me then highly recommend you to go on a journey through her vintage wonderland called Suziqu's Threadworks.

My dearest Suzy, I'm so grateful and happy with your beautiful package! I'm going to be so happy using the wonderful doilies and the paper you sent me and will treasure the gorgeous tag you made. Thank you sweetie!
