Good morning :)
Happy Friday and best of wishes for a delightful October!
Fall is here for good....time for cocooning, hot cups of tea, cuddling on the couch covered in soft blankets, reading favorite books and magazines...
Fall calls for spending more time inwards, which in its turn calls for making our spaces warm and cozy.
Perhaps we want to redecorate a bit, without necessarily spending big ammounts of money.
Choosing a couple of new pictures to add warmth and give character to our walls
is a nice way to start.
And today there's a shop I love to be introducing you to, with the loveliest of oweners and super talented photographers, who sees the world through tender eyes and mostly pastel tones.
Dear friends, please meet Natalie French from the little town of Porthcawl
in the South coast of Wales.
while seeing the world through the lens.
She has a newly opened Etsy shop, where she sells some of her delightful photographs.
In the collage above I 've chosen my absolutely favorite ones,
the one on the top left, marking Natalie's birthday this past week
and the one on the bottom right,
these absolutely amazing pastel coloured chalks,
having made it to Explore's Front Page!
Congratulations and Happy Birthday dearest Natalie!
I'm particularly happy to be hosting her here, as we have organised a little give away for you.
The idea was set a week ago, when Natalie commented on the Lovely give away Heather and I had then put together on Gathering Spriggs.
She was kind enough to leave a comment in order to win one of my shop's prints.
Speaking of which, this afternoon around 5p.m central European time, the winner will be announced.
Since a give away is ending today we are celebrating that with holding a new give away here!
What do you have to do to enter?
1 ~> Visit Natalie's shop here,
2~> have a wonderful time looking at her gorgeous, soul soothing pictures
much like the ones below,
try hard to choose only one and
3~> come here in this post stating which one it is,
while writing the email address where you may be reached.
The give away will be running for a week.
So starting today until next Friday 8th of October, 24:00 p.m
you may be entering.
Natalie and I are wishing you all the luck!
...and are leaving you with a couple of more beautiful picturesfrom her shop,
soft like a cloud.
Natalie will be happy to see you on her marvelous flickr photostream here
and in her newly launched blog here
and I 'll be happily seeing you here quite soon, as soon as this afternoon actually,
when I 'll come to announce who has won one of my shop's prints and card & envelope set.
A wonderful day to you all,
Ivy ~ xx
