Treasure box and giveaway extention

Thank you for all your wonderful blog Anniversary wishes. So many lovely things were said in your comments. Really appreciated!

Well, this week didn't quite go according to plan, hence the lack of posts. Miss P has a heavy cold with quite high temperatures on and off. I have also had people in and out of the house looking at the roof and others giving quotes for wallpapering our bedroom.

A few weeks ago, I spent well over an hour going through several wallpaper books in a interior designer shop in a nearby town. I finally narrowed it down to about six wallpapers that I liked. When the samples arrived in the post, it didn't take long to decide. The one pictured above is what I have chosen for our bedroom.

About 10 days ago this beautifully wrapped package arrived for me in the post. I bought it from Floss, I was lucky enough to visit her blog just as it had been listed for sale.

Lovely packaging Floss!

I'm so pleased with it!

Just a reminder that you can still enter my giveaway if you have not already done so. To enter the giveaway, comments need be left on the GIVEAWAY post please.

I have extended the time, comments can now be left up until 18.00 hours GMT tomorrow Thursday 04th March, as I will not be available during the day as previously planned. (As Miss P is unwell, I will be looking after her) This gives some of you an extra chance to have your name added to the list!

The draw will take place between 19.00 - 21 hours tomorrow evening (Thursday 4th March)

Back to nursing duties...

A bientôt!

So glad to see your pretty tin in situ! Thanks for mentioning me. I do have a little shabby rose box that I'm thinking of putting into the shop, although it's still on my own shelf at the moment!

Thanks for mentioning the giveaway too - I'll pop over to that post and join in now.

Hey Isabelle,
Your wallpaper choice is so pretty and so is your vintage find that came in the mail...I love that!

Maybe it won't be long before the work can begin on the repairing of your roof.
I hope Miss P is feeling better.
Big Hugs,

Hello Isabelle
Sympathies to Miss P.. and a large spoon of honey. There is a lot of these nasty bugs around.. my boy has been tres poorly this week.

I am glad the weather has stayed dry for you this week with your current roof problems. Everytime we have heavy rain.. I look up at our ceiling when I hear the drips!!!!
Funny you should mention wallpaper.. I have been quietly obsessed with vintage papers this week.. I think that is a splendid choice of paper and will compliment your wonderful vintage furnishings well.

A bientot

I really liked Floss's idea to use a map to wrap your gift it is fab. I am going to nick that idea!
Hope your little one feels better soon.

Love the tin you managed to bag, and the wallpaper is a great choice too. Doesn't Miss P look just like her mother?

Have a lovely weekend.

I am in love with the wallpaper. How romantic of Alan to express his feelings in the comments! And I thought English men were reserved! Pleased to know Miss P now feels better. It is so worrying when the children have high temps. xx
