It's been an age since I had a give-away and I thought it was about time to gather some bits and bobs from my various thrifted charity shop/boot sale collections and some items I bought for an absolute bargain over the past few months, to say a great big THANK YOU for all your inspiration, advice, sharing of stories, general ups and downs and friendships over the past couple of years.
Blogging is strangely addictive...I was discussing with my very bestest friend Bronwen when I was in South Africa how odd or strange it seems to blog, who/what are we blogging for? I think it's for many reasons and most of us have asked ourselves this question and answered it rather eloquently.
My reason today is to spread my blogging joy a little (I like giving things away to people who like similar things to me :o) and show my appreciation for your comments and community spirit of like minded people. So here goes:
There will be some of these old cards including birds, butterflies and flowers:
Some vintage (+ 1 new one in the centre) buttons from my collection:
Bits and bobs; old stamps, wooden pegs to make a dolly with, some of these large safety pins I seem to have accumulated (I thought I might sew or crochet something onto mine and make it into a brooch of sorts?) and a sweet ceramic rose I stuck onto a small wooden peg for keeping papers together:
A 100g skein of Manos silk blend (30% silk and 70% merino):
The vintage buttons from last month's Mollie Makes magazine and a Cath Kidston egg cup (Boiled eggs don't feature in this here household):
This little ceramic brooch I picked up last year when we visited Charleston House:
Oh, and one of my many many (don't tell my husband!) crystals from old chandeliers...
Umm, what else, oh yes this little ball oh blue hemp twine, I crocheted mine into a bath scrub inspired by the gorgeous Alice from Crochet with Raymond's blog:
And last but not least the little envelope style vintage pillow case I've taken all these photo's on:
Here's all the give-away bits and bobs together to give you a little more perspective:
So that's it folks, to enter just follow my blog and leave a comment. I'll add a button at the side if you want to advertise this give-away on your blog and if you do, let me know and I'll pop your name into the draw twice.
I'll draw the winning name on Wednesday the 23rd May
All the best and take special care
This give away is now closed, thanks for entering.
