Sylvia at Cosiness

Last year when I had my first Giveaway
Hennypenny picked out Sylvia's blog, Cosiness 
for one of the runner-up prizes.

Sylvia was one of my very first followers and I've long followed her
blog because I absolutely ADORE her exquisitely staged
and exceptionally skillful photographs artfully
enhanced with simple garden flowers.

I sent Sylvia some vintage ephemera and a very pretty little set
of antique doilies, hand crocheted in a beige cotton
which seemed to suit the sepia tones of her pictures.

These photos from her post "Cracked" show the delicious way
she used her prize as a setting for the wonderfully
distressed leather collar box.


A leather collar box,
a crochet,
polish, the sweet smell of nostalgia.
From a bygone age
memories come flooding back. . ."

Thankyou Sylvia. . .so lovely.

I think you have given me an idea for my next giveaway draw - a dainty little beak will make much less mess that a big furry snout! And what a wonderful name for a blog - makes me think of vests and thick socks and blankets - just up my street!
