I'm back

I've had a 2 week break from blogging while I was back in Scotland for the Easter holidays. It was so nice to be home even if the weather was a bit Christmassy rather than Eastery! I spent a week at home sorting out wedding plans and spending time with family. I managed to tick quite a few boxes on my wedding to do list including ordering flowers and the men's kilts. I also had my first dress fitting which was so exciting. I can't wait to wear my beautiful dress. It was such a busy week I didn't get a chance to take many photos and the ones I did take were on my mum's camera and I didn't get round to putting them onto my computer.

When I got back to Italy this lovely package was waiting for me..........



It came here all the way from the South of France. Inside was the lovely little giveaway I won last month.




Thanks again to Sonia from Cozy Homemaking for such a pretty little parcel. It was such a nice feeling opening this gift that was so carefully packaged up and sent off, especially for me by a lady I've never met. I'm inspired to do a giveaway of my own now to pass on the kindness. For now I'm looking for recipes to make some tasty flower shaped treats. Not sure yet what I'll do with the lace - any ideas?
