Something special arrived in the mail yesterday, something I had been expecting.
In late November I won my first giveaway. It was my blog friend Igor of Happy Interior Blog that was giving away this colourful hand-embroidered lumbar vintage suzani cushion cover from the Ikatsuzani shop on Etsy. The shop is based in the city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan, in Central Asia.
I fell for the colours and patterns instantly. I have nothing like this in my home and I doubt that anything like this is available in shops nearby. The cushion was larger than I thought it would be so I just need to find a cushion pad that fits. I'm going to keep it in the TV room, as the sofa in there has a light neutral colour. I may look for two turquoise coloured cushions to go with it. I told Igor that maybe this means that I will start watching TV again!
I have to add that I loved the package itself. As you can see, the cushion cover was wrapped in brown paper, tied with string and sealed. It doesn't happen often that one gets a package like that in the mail. It took some time to reach Luxembourg but it was worth the wait.
Thank you Ikatsuzani shop and Igor!
In my yesterday's post I was dreaming of spring and I found that dream a little crushed when I woke up this morning. There was snow on the ground. I guess I will have to wait a little longer for spring-like days.
Have a wonderful weekend dear readers and blog friends!
