Spring Print Giveaway

A big THANK YOU to everyone who entered the Spring Print Giveaway competition! It was lovely reading through all your responses and an incredibly hard decision picking just one winner from all the wonderful emails I received.

Congratulations to Agnese from Italy who won the "Home Sweet Home" print. Her description of Spring left my heart smiling....

"I think it's mostly a matter of the air smelling different. It doesn't matter if it's early March or late April: spring comes when the air starts smelling thin and green and it doesn't stab anymore when blowing against your face. You just wake up one morning and feel it. The same happens here now with Autumn: the leaves are still green and tied to their branches but the wind already smells like nuts and walks in the woods and handmade wool jumpers. This is the first year in my life that I don't really enjoy the cold season approaching and miss spring and all the hopes and promises for the summer it usually brings. I miss the long walks, the smell of a hundred different flowers filling my head, the sunlight losing its sharpness."

Delightful....
