Sylvan Surprises


Isn't it so exciting to win something! I very rarely do. I've applied for Strictly Come Dancing tickets from the BBC ballot for the last 13 series with no luck. Same with the Wimbledon ballot. I've even had a bash at the recent Stylecraft raffle.

So imagine my surprise when Alison from Sylvan House sent me a message to say I had won her giveaway! Fabulous! And I didn't even realise I had entered! Maybe that's the answer.

The parcel has just arrived.

Many thanks Alison, the soap is absolutely gorgeous, it just couldn't smell much more lemony. My favourite. The cards are beautiful too.

Alison bought them on her recent holiday to Holland. I will have to do a post on our trip to Keukenhof Gardens a few years back.  Stand by for some very unseasonal flower displays which might spur you on to plant some bulbs to flower next year!

Thanks for all the Five on Friday messages, great to hear from you.

See you soon.


  1. Hey congratulations! I'm the same with the Wimbledon ballot, 28 years and nothing ha! Enjoy your lovely prize xx

  2. What a lovely surprise! I don't win things very often, either.

  3. Lucky lady! Maybe this is the beginning of a winning streak!!

  4. Glad the parcel arrived safely, Karen!
    I'd love to visit the Keukenhof Gardens, it looks amazing from the photos I've seen.

  5. It was your turn! Perhaps you will win strictly tickets next time now you have received this! xx
