Perpetual One

Just recently I (and some other bloggy commenters) won a lovely little suprise from Georgina of Perpetual One just for leaving a comment on her blog.  It was very unexpected and dreadfully nice.  Wasn't that kind and sweet of her?  Here she is!

This gorgeous pic is from Georgina's blog
I have been wanting to visit Georgina for ages - she has a gorgeous caravan-stall at the Peregian Beach markets in Queensland and her next market date is on April 17...not far away at all!  She sells all sorts of lovely vintagey, hand assembled goodness there, has her own Etsy shop, and has even been featured in Country Style, which is one of my most favourite mags.  Good-O!!

This one is too  
So you can imagine my delight at being the recipient of a lovely little brown paper envelope which held a pretty little package inside.

And just look what it was!  A gorgeous vintage hankerchief, hand embroidered with the word "hope" and a sweet card from Georgina, herself.

So lovely, no?

Georgina, do you know - I had some pretty dreadful, nasty things happen to me last week and the very thing I needed most of all was just a little bit of hope.  Thankyou for sending some (and on a hanky to help dry my tears!)  You've no idea how much your small kindness changed my week.  I will hope...over and over.


  1. How lovely! :)
    I'm sorry to hear you have been experiencing some bad things. I 'hope' things improve for you. Hugs xx

  2. How lovely. I hope you're feeling better. x

  3. It was my pleasure. I am so glad it came at the right time. Thank-you for your sweet post - now you have made my week!

    Also thought your readers might like to know the source of the lovely stationery... it's by Poppies for Grace. They make some really beautiful pieces.


    Best wishes

  4. What a lovely gift and it sounds like it was sent just as it was needed. Sending warm thoughts that all is well with you sooner rather than later. A little line from Peter Pan that keeps me going - 'All it takes is faith and trust.' At times it feels like one is in the depths of despair, and that our heart is down at our toes. Remember there are people thinking of you and sending hugs and sweetness your way. Take care.

  5. That is such a nice gesture on Georgina's part and so timely received by you. I hope this week is going better for you.

  6. I feel so bad for you. But I'm glad someone was able to bring you some cheer.

  7. Thank you all for your kind words. They've really helped to make me feel so much better. What on earth would I do without you all? :)

    Unfortunately the situation isn't going away anytime soon, however, after this experience I'm going to try my hardest to just trust in the universe a little more...I'm clearly being sent what I need when I need it.

    Thanks for the link to Poppies for Grace as well, Georgina. I highly recommend everybody get their cursors over to their online shop asap. I have their wall calender already and completely lust after their beautiful letter sets.

  8. hello,

    that is great!!!!!!

    greatings send you Conny
