Two lovely things happened to me today!

Which is especially lovely as I have a horrible flu like cold at the moment! 

                         Lovely thing number one:

In the mail arrived my first giveaway win ever, infact my only win ever!!!! I won a copy of The Outside Boy on Julia's fabulous blog and I am so looking forward to reading it!  Thank you Julia!

 Lovely thing number two:

I popped into our local Salvo's store (my favourite shop EVER) and look what I found!!!!  A perfect, unchipped immaculate Carlton Ware single flower plate.  AAAAHHHH!  Rufus Wainwright was singing the chorus from Hallelujah in my head as I walked out of the shop!!!!  I have been collecting Carlton Ware since my early university days and I have been looking for one of these plates for a LONG time.  I feel better already.


  1. Beautiful gifts of serendipity both.

    xx Felicity

  2. Well, good for you, Sweetie! I'd be interested to hear about the book when you've read it. J x

  3. I'm so glad you got it! I was starting to think that I'd had the worst give-away ever....visions of you having to get the book some some dank customs shed on a warf in Sydney...having to slip a custom's official a $20...something like that.

    Love your find! That's how I feel when I find a McCoy piece {for cheap}!

    Hope you get to feeling better :)

  4. Oooh, lucky you :) Sounds like a GREAT day! XoL

  5. Love those moments. Enjoy them Emma :)
