Goodness Give Away (Closed!)




Happiness is allowing the world to be slightly pink, and adding wee hearts with 
a couple of letters here and there. Happiness is sharing some of the goodness, just 
because it gives happiness.

If you would like to win the large hand made bag, please leave me a comment letting us all
know what truly makes you happy. 

. . . 
Thank you for joining in!

  7. The changing of the leaves, Autumn sunbeams warming my face, in my every day life there are lots of little things that bring happiness such as my little ones singing together while driving to the supermarket, a lovely drawing, flowers (or just one single flower in a little vase), homemade pie, sipping my morning coffee with my husband after having returned from bringing the children to school, cheery colored fabric and boxes, paper. I could go on but I think I just stop here and wish you a happy hApPY midweek, Anna. Off to make another XL cup of Autumn storm tea xx

  8. Wow, what an amazing gift and piece of craftmanship are you sharing with us!
    What makes me happy? Being fully present and giving my undistracted attention to that what appears right in front of me. Of course I don't mind at all if that are the freshly washed hairs of my two toddler boys :-)

  15. OMG! i almost stopped breathing ! Anna! your bag is so lovely. Now i really, really have to ask my little angel to help me win this giveaway !
    what makes me happy? So many things...Family always will, but also the simple little things in life. The birds chirping in the spring, the first flowers, the wonderful stunning colors we get here in the fall, a nice walk on a cold day,then nestling with a cup of tea and some knitting by the fire. The wind, i just love a big windy day.I big violent thunderstorm ( i know, this sounds weird )...my list could go on and on, but i know i have to leave some space for more comments.
    hopw your day is good dear Anna ♥

  16. All my art girls & constantly being amazed at the wonderfulness they are capable of!

    love you :)
    I'll be in Paris the first week of April - can we make some kind of plans where you come up for the day or I come down for the night? How awesome would it be to finally give each other all those hugs?! We could even do a something fun with Celine if you think :)

  53. Give-aways like this make me happy. Just someone nice making a beautiful gift for a stranger. I'm gonna do that too sometime in the next few weeks. Great idea. Other things that make me happy are being at home with boy friend Gijs en dog Guus. Just relaxing, me probably sewing or crocheting, Gijs working in the garden and Guus most likely sleeping in the sun. And the weather today is totally happy-making. Cold and sunny, no wind. Beautiful weather for a long walk with the dog. Marieke

  54. It's just a little gesture that can make me Happy. A book, a flower, a smile, a tiny jar of handmade jam, Nature always. And Family and Friends. Without them I could not imagine Life :)

    Happiness is also to pass by, and take a look at your beautiful things...
