We got very excited this morning when this large package arrived from the U.S.

We hadn’t ordered it… we’d won it!

It’s a fabulous prize from interior decorator/graphic designer Dee Adams, author of one of our favourite blogs, deedee9:14

The giveaway consisted of this cute little cloud & raindrops mobile from The Butter Flying Etsy shop and a framed poster designed by Dee herself.

We’ve found good homes for both. The cloud mobile is hanging from the kitchen window, watering the seedlings beneath – and Dee’s poster is now hanging in our bedroom. It’s a lovely illustration whatever the weather!

Having said that, it’s a very apt artwork for us – we live in Todmorden in the Pennines, one of the wettest places in the country!

We’re winners!
