ITS NEARLY A YEAR

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Well early Saturday morning here in Australia and the last few days have been very hot. Loads and loads of work on at the moment but having Angela here a couple of mornings a week has been an amazing help.... I can't believe it is nearly a year since I started this blog and I must say I have loved the journey, it has been amazing... So I want to do something special for all my blogging friends with a give-away. I have a really nice issue of a decorating magazine produced in Australia that features a gorgeous house all in white tones.... I love it... Also one of my new shaped charms that are yet to be released.... I just need you to drop by my blog and tell me what sort of things you would like me to show you in the year ahead.....Closes 4th March....

  13. Hi Cathy,
    Congratulations on loving your un-work!
    I love your creations, I have a couple of your charms from French Garden House which I adore to pieces.

    I love all things french - anything like that would be great. I so loved looking into your workshop, all the old books - just wonderful. Love those double charms too - haven't seen them before. Your workshop felt like walking into the Secret Garden.

    Love your talent!

  39. Dear Cathy!
    Congrats on your first year. I really only have one thing to say....more, and more and more of the same please. Your blog is an intoxicant ( in a good sence) and I have become dependent on at least one sneakpeak a day. The photos of your beautiful home, your charms and YOU are a constant source of inspiration for me. So don`t change a thing unless you want it yourself. I am more than content already!

    The magazine looks great. That`s about the only thing I can do theese days in between eating painkillers and piling my hand up high. Reading magazines that is. It`s only three days since my hand surgery and I am already going crazy. I am bored stiff!

    Lots of love to you my friend

  49. Hi Cathy! First off let me thank you for the lovely order you just did for my shop! All the charms are wonderful! I would love to see more of your home as well, and as for charms maybe more in deeper sepia tones. And always more in old scrolly French script. Love that! What about snippets (is that a word?) of old fabric or old buttons under glass?

    Blessings,
