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,
polish, the sweet smell of nostalgia.
From a bygone age
memories come flooding back. . ."
Thankyou Sylvia. . .so lovely.
