My lovely present!!



Regular readers of my blog will know that a fortnight ago I was lucky enough to win a hundred dollar give-away from Pamela at From the House of Edward (a lovely blog - see my side bar if you want to read her beautiful prose).

In order to claim my prize I had to go to http://novica.blogspot.com, which is a site run in association with National Geographic, to sell artisan products from all over the world - what a difficult choice it was!

In the end I chose this beautiful bag, made in leather, hemp and cotton in Thailand. I ordered it and within a week it was here, beautifully packaged and such an exciting present to open.

The service of novica was absolutely faultless. I made a mistake on my order and sent them an e mail which was answered in a short time by a lovely lady called Stephanie. Everything went like clock work and now I am the owner of this lovely bag.

So thank you so much, firstly to Pamela and then to Novica and finally to Team Thailand. All that remains now is for me to go out somewhere where I can show it to everyone - and I know it will be well and truly admired.

Congratulations on your win, and what a lovely surprise Pat. The colours are so gentle the bag will go with almost everything. You will have to take it with you on your next lunch date with friends.

What a well deserved gift, Pat. Yours is an excellent choice. The bag suits your blog name. It reminds me of weaving. A woven multicoloured beauty.
