My Super-lucky Saturday

As some of you will already know the annual Sydney miniatures fair was held last Saturday. It turned out to be my lucky day in more ways than one!

Firstly it was great to meet up with bloggers Margaret (My Petite Parterre), Linda (Une Petite Folie) and Linda's friend and fellow blogger Jo (Small world).

Then came the surprises!

Margaret gave Linda and I one of her fabulous candelabras! I was incredibly surprised and over-joyed as I had SO wanted to win the one she offered recently in her giveaway draw.


and it comes with its very own table mat ...



What a thrill to have one of Margaret's fabulous creations of my very own :) Thank you so much Margaret, your generosity is amazing.


But that wasn't my only sweet surprise! Quite 'out of the blue' Linda handed me this lovely little box full of vintage French photographs and mail including a couple of envelopes with little photos 'peeking' out...



It will be a perfect addition to my mini French apartment - oh, you don't know about the French apartment yet do you... more to be revealed ... eventually ;) Thank you Linda, I'm really touched and delighted.


But wait - there's more!! I was a prizewinner in Susan's giveaway draw on Saturday - I'll post pics of her cute things when they arrive - meantime be sure to visit her blog minicrochetmad :)


The generosity of bloggers continues to amaze me - a heartfelt thanks to all of you - I just LOVE everything!

Linda and Margaret have already posted some great pics they took at the show, if you haven't seen them be sure to visit their blogs and take a look. I will post about my purchases and a vendor I want to tell you about soon - promise :)


In the meantime, back to the job of tidying up and referencing my assignment....

Part of me really yearns to do a dollhouse. Of course, I thrive on the fairy gardens.
