Inspiration (and giveaway winners).

I picked up some inspiring postcards on my recent trip to Portugal.

I can definitely see some ideas for art quilts.

This fella below was everywhere, but as I couldn't carry a big ceramic one home with me I bought this shopping bag instead.

I have drawn the winners for the giveaway of Seaside Home.
The book will be going to Debbie of Woolen Sails. The ebook will be going to Nini, who kindly promoted the giveaway on her blog:)
Thank you to everyone that entered. I enjoyed reading about your favourite beaches and was thrilled to find that I knew a few of them personally.
Wishing you all a productive week.

  1. Congratulations to the winners.

  2. years ago, I moved to a Portugese neighbourhood (renting) but loved it so much that when I bought my house, I decided to stay.

    My new neighbours presented me with one of those ceramic roosters as a "welcome to the neighbourhood" and I certainly saw them everywhere! (Although I still own the house I converted it into 3 income properties so I don't live there anymore).

    It's nice to see him again! :)

  3. I am so thrilled to win a copy of the book, can't wait to try some projects. Love the birds and the rooster, will make some nice art pieces.

    Thank you so much for the generous giveaway.


  4. I'm so happy to be receiving the e-book! Thank you so much.

    I got a mini ceramic rooster from a friend who visited Portugal. I really like him, he is so vintage looking... I think it's because of the colors.
