This is what makes me smile.

This is what I think is beautiful. This is where I draw inspiration.
This is me.

In anticipation of Earth Day, the wonder of looking up at ancient giants. 
These giant sequoias are in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Watkins spent decades photographing this area, opening the Yosemite Art Gallery in 1867.

It’s time for another giveaway! I’ve reached another follower milestone, and to celebrate I’m holding a mystery box giveaway. 
The prize:
A mystery box filled with handmade goodies! The contents will remain a secret until the winner has received it. All the items in the box will be perfect for a corset or lingerie lover! 
The rules (there are only two):
You need to reblog this post to be in with a chance of winning - Only one reblog counts per person. No giveaway blogs, please. Likes won’t count!
You need to be following me. I will be checking. 
When you reblog (and if you are following me) your username goes on a bit of paper and goes into the pot. When I draw the winner, I will double check that the username is still in my list of followers. 
Please have your ask box open so I can contact you for your name and address. I will also need to ask you for your corseted and uncorseted waist sizes so a couple of the prize items can be custom made! If I am unable to contact the first winner, or do not hear from them within 72 hours, I will draw a second name and try again. 
Entrants must be over the age of 18 years of age, or have parental permission for me to ask for your details. Shipping will be paid by me.
Competition ends on the 25th of April at 9pm BST. Any reblogs after this time will not be counted.
 Good luck everyone!
