happy mail + sweet little giveaway

Hope all is well!
I screwed up my back (which is very easy to do since I have a bad back) yesterday mowing my neighbours lawn so a lot of moans and groans from me today! ;)

I received some happy mail yesterday! My sweet little pot arrived created by the talented (and super nice) Marina Marinski! This is my first purchase but not my last...I want to buy a plate to hang in my daughter's room and I need another little something for my office...or bedroom...

Marina's got an Etsy shop filled with her wonderful handmade ceramics.
Like I mentioned she's super friendly and her English is awesome (for all those non-Croatian folks wondering).

 You can find her sweet ceramics all the way in Australia (among other countries) and I just love following her success and creations! 

And here's my sweet little ceramic pot, perfect home for my succulent plant! LOVE her rosy cheeks! I'll have to name this pot...any suggestions! :) She's made her home on my kitchen window sill where I spend a lot of time.

Marina's also on facebook!

The latest I read is that you can now find her ceramics in Vancouver Canada too!

I had sent her some of my stamps a while back and she was sweet enough to send me this adorable ceramic brooch. I've decided to pass her generosity and do a little giveaway! :)

So if you'd like to win this Marina Marinski handmade ceramic brooch please leave a comment and I'll randomly choose a winner. Everyone is welcomed to play a I hope you do! :)

Have a great day!

Pin It!

Next step will be for you to do a stamp with a 'Marina Marinski design' and for Marina to do another ceramic brooch with one of your 'stamp design'! That'll be an interesting suite in the trade :)
All the very best for the future!!

Hello Jane,

I am sure I am not the only one wondering but I have to ask, when will you pick the person for this beautiful give away? You didn't say in your post... :/
I am sorry to be impatient, I am actually really curious :)

Many thanks again for the opportunity,

All the best wishes from London :)
