Everyone is very deserving of their wins! I would like to say I would enter next year, but the bar has been set pretty high... I guess I have an entire year to think about it!

What beautiful styling with all the winners!! Congratulations!

(and I can't help feeling a little smug that I have the same stag on my table in Switzerland as your 2nd placer LOL!!)
