*Grand Giveaway Bonanza Winner*

The excitement mounts!

I painstakingly wrote out all the names (in most instances, twice, then we carefully folded them all, then Iris lent me her favourite Tyrolean hat and we set about drawing a winning name...



So without further ado - congratulations Alessandra!



Then Iris insisted on picking another name (she would've gone on and on I think) and that was Louise from Super Duper Things.



I didn't plan to have two winners but there you go, those of you with children might understand the crazy iron will of a three year old. Louise, I am going to rustle up a extra little something just for you.



Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter. I'll try to have another giveaway soon, i.e. not in 200 posts time.

In other news, I have started a tumblr account for, well, no good reason, just that I have been collecting nice images from around the place and not doing anything with them, and I thought that if I liked them, well, that maybe you would too.

Do have a look, it's called The Silver Forest, and at the moment it's all about pretty fashiony ladies and other frothy matters of delicious frivolity. Like this...



Not that Meryl Streep is at all frothy. But damn, she sure is beautiful. Kramer vs Kramer is one of my all time favourite films.

Oh and if you have a tumblr or you know some good ones, will you post them in the comments? t.h.a.n.k.s!

I also finally put pen to paper today and started a little drawing project that I show you sometime soon. Progress! Yes!
