Blogging connections and a giveaway winner

Life is strangely busy here in the (slowly) melting snow. I'm popping in to draw the giveaway winner for this, but before I do I just want to tell you what else I'd like to share with you in the next two holidays weeks. I want to tell you how blogging led to Son 2 getting hooked on incredibly complex mazes, created by a young man on the other side of the world...

I want to share a recipe (especuially for Serenata) which originally came to me years ago from the lovely Sumea, who blogs when she can at Morikomiori.


I want to share my Thrill of What You Already Have photo - lots of people have already done their posts, and my collection is made, but not yet posted:



I want to tell you what Son 2 is cooking up for Valentine's Day!


But before I have time for any of that, I'll pick the giveaway winner. I just want to say that giveaways can be such a good way to meet friends - one year I got to know Kit, when she won a giveaway of mine (English roses, I think), and then I got to know her daughter, too, who also has a blog! I really enjoy following both of their mountain-living blogs now, and their lovely comments here. So now to the draw...

Well done Gill.

I'm waiting for my thrill post as I am bout to empty the dining room in order to paint it, and what I have in mind will be going in there once the painting is done!

Go Gill! I loved this post and hearing about all the connections you & your family have made through blogging. Some beautiful links and connections that wouldn't have been other wise. Hope all is well with you, so nice to pop in and visit. Like seeing an old friend, take care Floss xo
