OK and now for our Facebook Giveaway winners…….

CONGRATULATIONS TO:

LINDA/SCRATCH (Norway)

Comment:  

I just love your flowers! I love the versatility, the beautiful colors, and all the details. I really love the ones in light pink and blue colors, and the fact that almost all of your flowers mixes so well with one  another.

And I really love the fact that even if some of your flowers are really big, they are fairly thin, so we still can use them on a scrapbook page, and put it in an album without messing the flower up to much.

Thanks for the chance to win. Would I be so lucky, it would be heaven on earth, to be able to get my hands on some of your gorgeous flowers:)

And thanks for all the great inspiration in the blog!

Greetings from Norway:)

JASMINE SHEA (Australia)

Comment: I think the blues and yellows are just divine but then again, they are my favourite colours so I tend to gravitate towards them. I actually bought some of The Tropics-Bayside from the internet thinking they were more blue when in actual fact they are more purple which I don’t tend to use but then that will be my challenge, to use something I would not otherwise use. I did look at how the DT had used them so that will be enough inspiration to try them. I would love to see more neutral tones and maybe black in a number of sizes. All in all, I think Manor House are doing a fabulous job with their range and inspiration from the DT.

PATTI HAMMIL (USA)

Comment: It would be wonderful to win that package! Either of them!!! I love the variety of colors that you have, from the beautiful bright colors to the muted pastels. I also like that you have a varied size to work with from the large beautiful single blooms all the way to the adorable little cutie pies!!! I would love to see some small cluster blooms that are not roses!! That would be my wish!!!

Girls – please email us your postal addresses and your happy mail will be on its way soon!

We had some wonderful feedback and thankyou to everyone who went to the effort of telling us what they think…we value your opinions greatly!
