A Thank You,
A Winner,
And a Parisian Escape

A huge MERCI  for all of your kind wishes and support on my blog's birthday! I was so touched by every message....

All of you were entered into the giveaway, and as much as I wanted to send out 20 copies (20 entries!), I could only gift one...
So, I proceeded with a very scientific method.... :)

 My daughter helped me out with this....
we both had our eyes closed as she drew out the lovely name ....
drum roll.....

 Congratulations dear Nancy!!

If you have not yet visited the kind and talented Nancy, do stop by..
Her gorgeous blog Fete et Fleur is an oasis of beauty and calm.

Just one more thing....

I am very excited to participate in Anita's Paris link party!
Next Friday we land in the City of Lights!

It's not too late to join the fun...
Just let Anita know at her fabulous blog...
A Bientot!


Wishing everyone a beautiful week...
- Irina



  1. I'm so thrilled to have won your anniversary giveaway! Thank your sweet daughter for picking my name.

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Yay!! Congrats to Nancy. I know the feeling you speak of, of wanting to give to each participant. Muah! You have such a giving heart, love.

    I better go rest my eyes a bit now. I am attending two blog parties this week and have made not one but three prizes. Passion, creativity, and spontaneity combined can be quite exhausting, not one has the slightest notion of time, but my body sure does. ;)

    Much love,

  3. Happy Blogiversary. I'm missed the drawing, but still wanted to let you know that I'm so glad to have "met" you through blogging. All of your blogs always inspire. laurie

  4. YEAH! She came......HI NANCY! Hello there sweet friend! Anita

  5. Irina, How delightful! Congratulations to Nancy! Hurray for the upcoming Paris link party at Anita's! I have not had a bit of time to even think about my post for it. I am hoping to unpack my latest Paris-themed creations and show them. Packing and moving has crimped my style!!! Will be excited to visit you as we all travel to Paris with Anita

  10. hello dearest
    i came to let you know that timothy twinkle has turned a corner and is beginning to feel better and daisy moomin is already a lot better. i had a sleepless night tending them but it was so very worth it. they are such precious lambs. i just hope that out other kitty doesn't get it too.
    how are you my lovely french-speaking friend ? i wish i lived close to you and anita, you could teach me too :)
    i haven't seen the marie-antoinette film yet with kirsten dunst, have you seen it? i plan to watch it this evening and tomorrow i am making brioche with my daughter. this french theme has run into my real life :)
    wishing you a magical week ahead xx

  11. What a fabulous post, and a happy belated blog birthday greeting.
    I love so many of your images, but can't find a link to your Pinterest boards, which I'd really like to follow, can you let me know?

    Many Many thanks and have a superb weekend.

    Jude x
