Congratulations Valerianna, the moleskine notebook will be on it's way to you as soon as you let me have your details. :) x

Now it's back to painting a batch of wooden hares. I've been completely away with the faeries, with my head stuck in those silver clouds this week. I hadn't even realised that my hobbits finished school today for the Easter break!  Oh dear me...

A Magic notebook which could be yours..

Looking around it seems that Spring has arrived. The snowdrops are going over and the primroses are appearing.
Up in the top fields the lambs have arrived too.
Yesterday I went to photograph them but it was so so cold, much colder even than Iceland. I felt sorry for the lambs as they were laid down sheltering from the cold winds. The Spring sun should have been shining warm down on their new limbs so that they can dance in the sunlight. I do hope it warms up soon. The March breezes are indeed loud and shrill, it's so windy out  that it sounds as if the Atlantic ocean  is just outside the back door.
I've been busy here finishing the last of the wintry paintings and other bits that needed completing, I've been planning and thinking quietly, hmm probably too much thinking.......
                                                  Last wintry painting before it's finishing touches..

                                                                Five Foxes ( Acrylic on wood)

Sometimes I have been graced with the feathered company here.

The other afternoon I played around customising some small moleskine notebooks.
I love these small moleskines they are just right for keeping in your bag or even your pocket when you go for a walk to the woods. They are perfect for writing or sketching thoughts down whenever you feel like it or kept for recording dreams and magical moments.  Two have gone into my Etsy shop but this third one below is up for grabs as a giveaway prize. Yes! for you my lovely bloggy friends! ;)

At the end of last month this blog had an anniversary. It was 5!  It's hard to believe how quickly the years have passed.  Anyway, I've  been meaning to do a little giveaway as it's been sometime since I last did one. So, if you would like a chance of winning this little notebook above, all you have to do is be a follower of this blog and leave me a comment below. This is specifically a 'blog' giveaway so only comments posted here will be entered into the draw.
Good luck and a happy Mad March to you! :)x

P.S ~ Draw will take place in about a week. x
