Something I did win though was a smile from a little girl who is a niece of a friend of mine. I made her a little mousie and here they are playing “all tucked in”

I also had the extreme pleasure of meeting up with a fellow blogger Jennifer from Winter Owls for tea and swapped her a “welcoming Owl” (more about these next time) for a Winter Owls Elephant Pin
