Lucky May

It's been a lucky Spring for me.
First, I won the book When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson on Anotonella's Blog. I devoured this book and it has made me revisit an author I hadn't read for a while so I am very grateful to Antonella for that.
And then this week a parcel of vintage loveliness arrived from Elegancemaison which you can see here. Many of the items were wrapped up in little parcels with bows - it was a lovely surprise. And my birthday isn't even in May.
Thank you so much to the two wonderful bloggers who brightened up my Spring.
Before I sign off for the weekend and yet another football match I just want to remind everyone of the Summer Capsule Wardrobe Contest which begins on Monday June 7
until June 11th.
Yes 5 days and not 8 days - I got it so wrong in the last post. Please forgive me.
So far we have 21 contenders (including me) Franca, Kate, Kasmira, Lorena, Elegancemaison, Janet, Eek, Biba, Belle, Kiki, Cid's Style File, Chic on The Cheap, BBM,Cara, Legacy Of Pearl Julia, Classroom Chic, Rose, Mrs Hall In Training and Meli.
Just leave a comment on my blog to say you have completed the challenge and I will include you in the round-up.
Good Luck.
