My 7vignettes win


I was so thrilled last week to be the winner of an online photograph/styling competition. Many of you will have heard of or participated in The Interior Addict's Instagram 7 day vignette challenge, run by Jen Bishop with guest judges. I think this was the fourth month it was run. I have been taking part since the beginning and really love the challenge of setting up little vignettes based upon the theme of that day.
Here are my photos...


Above, the theme was "favourite" - some of my favourite things on my mantelpiece


Above, "layered"


Take two shot of "layered"


"gifts"


"soft"

"rough"


"secondhand"


above was a little shot I posted to say thank you for all the lovely comments I received throughout the challenge and below was another thank you after I won the comp!


I was so surprised! Really! SO chuffed too as it allows me to think that what I do is ok. It's so nice to have other people appreciate my images. It really does bring me a lot of joy.
As my prize I was given a gift voucher to an online store. I did a little shopping and will be back this week to show you what I purchased. I'm really excited about it!
Thank you to Jen for hosting the comp - it is so much fun! And thank you to Louise Olsen from Dinosaur Designs who was the judge who chose me!

ps I did it again, a whole week between posts. I was so busy at work last week and had no time for anything, but have some posts coming up. Phew!

  5. I didn't know about this competition! congratulations for your win! I am the proud owner of a paleolithic cell phone , no instagram, no android games or apps, nothing. sometimes I do feel like I come from another planet, but at least i dont die from a heart attack every time it falls on the floor (often). It's cheap, if it gets broken who cares.

    1. I have an ancient phone as well. I use my iTouch to use instagram, but mostly take pictures on my camera and upload them (otherwise they are out of focus). I would like an iPad, but there's always too many bills to pay!
