April/May Double Giveaway Bonanza!

wSo apparently April was a busy month for me - too busy to post a giveaway and in a couple of weeks I will be heading overseas to Taiwan to visit my mum, dad and little sister and enjoy some relax time.

I will also be on the hunt for new treasures to bring back and share with you all!

So before I go, here is a double giveaway to take you through till I get back.

I'm giving away a beautiful porcelain flower ring and a $40.00 gift voucher to use in my ETSY store.

These porcelain flower rings are striking and bold and will stand out in a crowd. They are chunky yet delicate and will really make an outfit look fantastic. What's even better is you get to choose one in your favourite colour! They come in canary yellow, baby pink, green, baby blue and mauve.

A night out at Parliament House

Wow am I exhausted! Very relieved too - the 5th Annual Safe Work Australia Awards which I was managing went off without a hitch!!! It was a great night to celebrate those who have done exceptional things in work health and safety around Australia. They are some of the greatest people I've ever met.

As promised, here are some photos from the night. It was fabulous and everyone had a great time.

View from above - The Great Hall decorated in our colour theme

The 10kg trophies!!!

Adam Spencer our amazing Master of Ceremonies

The fantastic band - "Smooth Operators"

And finallly the team who put it all together!!

I've got plenty of behind the scene shots which I'll upload in the coming days.

But for now, It's time to sleep

Kinda Busy....

Wow Autumn is in full swing and I haven't had time to look out my window. I've been flat out at work organising a big event which will be held on next week at Parliament House in Canberra! I'll post some pictures of the final event - it's been eight months in the making!

When I get back I'll  also post a few piccies from my visit to Shop Handmade - they have displayed everyone's pieces beautifully - including mine (*thanks so much girls!)

I'll shall also post my April giveaway - slightly late. Sorry everyone!

This weekend I will be enjoying a little bit of relaxation at the south coast, for the last time before winter hits I think... I'll have some photos to share with you from that experience too.

I've been going to boot camp three times a week and I can't tell you how beautiful the sun looks (I think I've already told you) when it's rising over the lake. But it's even better now that Autumn is here! The leaves are bright yellow and red and some have started to fall so it's really worth waking up at 5.30am to see it all. I am greatful every day at the beautiful things I get to see - it's funny how you respect things so much more when you get older.

I hope you have a wonderful Anzac weekend (those of you in Australia) and to the rest of the world - have a great weekend!

Love that Vintage

I honestly can't begin to express my love of vintage and in the little time I've had over the past few days to relax I've had a chance to read up on some of my favorite blogs which I'd thought I'd share with you today.

Great photography, great articles and great vintage finds!
