100th Post Giveaway!!!

At last we're here. My 100th post giveaway!! Edited to add - Giveaway now closed

To celebrate my 1st year of blogging and this wonderful community of creativity we have, I have collaborated with a few fellow bloggers and crafters (but most importantly they are my friends!) to bring you a little array of giveaways that will run over the next week, starting today!

Today's giveaway is for a trio of handcrafted scrumminess from three of my favourite bloggers. I have read their respective blogs since way before I took the plunge and started blogging myself and I'm happy to say that good friendships have ensued!!


So without further ado::


Up for grabs is a divine Lavender Birdie from the lovely Beth over at The Linen Cat. This was one of the first blogs I became addicted to, Beth's quality of work and style is just so beautiful and over the last year I have bought a number of pieces from her that are scattered around mine and my friends homes. There's also a fantastic pencil pouch from the very lovely Karen over at Blueberry Park. I found Karen via her online store where I've bought lots of lovely UK made gifts for my friends and family. As Karen is local to me we've met up a number of times and I've also attended 2 sewing workshops that she's run too. Her blog always has lots of sewing inspiration interjected with a wicked sense of humour! Finally, there is the most gorgeous handmade felt corsage from the very lovely Vanessa at Coco Rose Textiles. This blog is just awesome (as the kids would say of course), eye-candy to the max and actually makes me want to go live at her house!! Vanessa inspires me to try harder with my photography, oh and my baking and certainly at prettying my house up. She keeps trying to tell me the whole of her house isn't like the photos (she claims they're staged) but I'm not convinced!!


So how's that for the 1st giveaway, fantabulous don't you think? The generosity of my friends is amazing and this is just day 1.


So there are a few ways of entering, you need to leave me a comment for each method telling me you've done it. Simple.


1. Leave a comment telling me your favourite blog & why
2. Become a follower or let me know you already are
3. Blog about the giveaway (I'll be checking!) & let me know you did it
4. Follow me on twitter & tweet the giveaway (don't forget to copy me in on the tweet) and let me know you've tweeted

The competition closes at midnight (British Time) on Wednesday 9th March 2011. The winner will be announced on Thursday 10th March 2011.

Good Luck People!!

  1. I like this! My favourite blog, I think, would have to be Beth's (The Linen Cat).....but it is quite hard to decide. I didn't know about Coco Rose Textiles so I will have to check Vannessa out. Well done you for fixing this up. And here's to hundreds more posts! Juliex
