The Princess Connection/ Blog Giveaway Winner

Before I announce our blog giveaway winner, I would like to introduce you to the gorgeous designs of Lily Gardner.

What makes Lily's designs so unique is that they are created using Chantilly lace-still made on the original 18th Century hand-looms in France. The French lace used in her collection is made in Northern France by one of the oldest lace making houses.

So what's the "Princess Connection" I hear you all screaming? Well her lace is sourced from the same lace-making house that was used for the lace in Kate Middletons wedding dress! Yes, it is honestly true, I couldn't make this up if I tried ;-)

Lily's designs have also graced the counters of Harrods and The Victoria & Albert Museum (London) and 'Colette', Paris' most revered fashion boutique.

  13. Dear Vanessa
    I'm popping in to say thank you for you comment on my blog today. It was lovely of you to stop by.

    I know how you feel with the lack of snow - I lived in Sydney (Australia) for the past 12 years and only recently returned to my native Sweden to live.
    But I can imagine Spain has some wonderful Christmas traditions and I would love to hear about them. Please do a post and let me know when it is up so that I can read about it.

    Have a lovely ending to the week.
