Fabulous Tartan / plaid surprise

I have been casting my eye over the stunning tartan that is trending everywhere at the moment in clothes & interiors. Even though I have absolutely no Scottish roots, I still love the classic, timeless look of tartan, especially the more modern colours that are so very cosy for Winter.

Some weeks back, while browsing various interior d├ęcor sites for ideas, I saw a competition in Country Homes & Interiors on tartan's & decided on the spur of the moment to enter. We have all done it - entered & thought 'if only ... '

I forgot about it but have still been putting ideas on a pinterest-tartan-interiors board.

Yesterday a courier rang the bell with a parcel. I signed for it - not expecting a parcel - & Ms M (who is visiting from Dorset) & I opened the parcel. I was surprised (having forgotten about the competition because I never win anything) & at first thought  'ooops, did I accidently click BUY on the various tartan fabrics I was watching on Ebay?'

Thankfully we found the note from Country Homes & Interiors advising of my win & including the ready made curtains & two cushion covers.


I am so happy with the unexpected win that I am still grinning like a Cheshire cat & will soon be unveiling the new Winter look thanks to this fabulous prize. 

Thank you so much Country Homes & Interiors - Winter has just become a whole lot brighter & my home a whole lot trendier!

Have you ever won anything unexpectedly? Please visit again soon to see the Tartan update!
