Magnificent, Marvellous, Mighty Monday, A Winner and Secrets of a Lumpheart

I'd like to dedicate today’s post to all the Bloggers who inspire and move me. This most likely involves YOU. There are many things I dislike about the modern age and technology. Sometimes I feel panicky that we're all moving too fast, forgetting to look upwards at the stars. That silence, kindness and reverence is being lost.
Blogging, however, is filled with creative, supportive, mannerly, stylish, fab and whimsical folk. I always love the way that small moments become magical through the Blog.
I normally feel more at home as an observer rather than a participant, but Blogging is a round table where differences and observation are appreciated.
Thank you all who visit me whether you comment or leave quietly. I appreciate you all. Thank you to all my special Blogging pals around the world. You know who you are.
You fill me with a sense of awe about community and a powerful affirmation that the human race is filled with surprising and whimsical beauty.
And the winner of my first giveaway is -
Kat from the lovely Blog Secrets of a Butterfly. My Daisy was so impressed to draw a winner with such a Blog name and wants to call her Blog when she's a 'big girl' - Secrets of a Lumpheart. That's probably a better name than Tale Peddler.
Congratulations Kat. I shall be in touch with you.
Thanks for visiting me. Stay creative. xx

  1. What a beautiful little fairy, and Secrets of a Lumpheart would make a perfect blog title. Already I want to know what a Lumpheart is.

  2. yes, i'm wondering what a lumpheart is too!

    i agree with your description of the bloggy world - so funny that such a high tech medium can be so full of heart!

    daisy looks so sweet, i feel the time for fairywings is drawing near here! congratulations to kat!

  3. Josephine,
    such a beautifully written post, im so glad you are a part of the same blogging community i am. You are a treasure.
    I was just reading your post where you mention the Pixie land Enid Blyton book, I had not heard of that one. I may have to ebay search it like you have.
    My fave one is the Magic Faraway tree. Do you and Daisy have it?
    I am over the moon to be the giveaway winner, you know i adore Frankie. Thankyou to you and Daisy!
    What is a lumpheart, is it an imaginary creature? it sounds similar to a heffalump, but with wings? :)
    love kat x

  4. PS
    i forgot to add that: Daisy, your fairy outfit is sooooooo magical. i wish i had had one when i was your age, infact even now would be good, but it'd need to be a bit bigger. im quite a tall fairy you see ;)

  5. Aww, she is the most adorable thing in the world! I wish I could give Daisy a great big hug, and to you too for being such a wonderful blogger friend to me:)
