  1. The crochet doilies are absolutely gorgeous…are they your iwn designs or from a book? I would love to try them…I love to crochet.

    • Most are from patterns I found on the internet – I’ll add links to the posts where I wrote about the doilies, and from there you can find the patterns. I did make one of them up (it’s the most wobbly, wonky one!!)

  2. The give away was fantastic, thanks Laura!! I absolutely loved all of it.

    I have worn the scarf with my green coat and it is perfect. I will be attaching the lovely broach to one of my other jackets and the pegs are sooooo cute.

    The iced gems have gone over a few cups of coffee this week..

    Thank you soooooo much. It has inspired me and I will be doing a blog and my own give away soon.
