Alan opens the parcel
I entered a giveaway a couple of weeks ago and my goody box has just arrived. Alan Pitchfork was desperate to open the parcel. He’d had a sneak peek at the prizes on the Chantal Loves Vintage blogsite and was smitten with the Lady Hotdogandme Sock Dog, and thought the Yeahbut would make a good pal to mess about in the garden with. Here he is meeting his new friends…

Thank you Chantal, I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through all the lovely goodies. I don’t have an i-pod so I’m using the flowery felt pouch for my all important scissors and the drawstring bag is being used to stash my work-in-progress sewing

I was recently lucky enough to win two giveaway prizes from Issue Five of the most excellent magazine ‘oh comely’.
A lovely rabbit egg cosy from The Linen Cat.
and an adorable felted hen egg cosy by Seren Stacey
And here they both are being put to good use keeping our eggs warm!
If you enjoy a good read and a chance to win some unique handmade gifts then oh comely definitely fits the bill. This is what they say about themselves. Nip over to their site to find out more…
“oh comely is a magazine about people and their quirks and their creativity, rather than money and what it can buy.
It’s a magazine that inspires people to be creative, talk to their neighbours and explore new things, rather than buy stuff or lose weight. Imagine sitting down with a cup of tea and a creative friend to hear all the strange things she says, all the curious stuff she does, and about the things she loves.”
I was recently lucky enough to have my name picked out of the hat to win an impressive collection of ribbons. The giveaway was hosted by Helen of Dizzy Izzy Handmade.
She has a super selection of crafty supplies on offer – buttons, ribbon, zips, pins & needles, felt and lots more. She also creates very pretty handmade items for sale including brooches, bunting,purses, kits and bags.
If you need to top up your crafty supplies just pop over to her Dizzy Izzy shop. You can also join her blog to see what new additions she has coming up.
Helen also has shops at Folksy: Dizzy Izzy Gifts & Treats Dizzy Izzy Craft Supplies.
Here are a few pics of my fabulous new stash of ribbons – a metre of every one in the shop! As the weather was nice today I started off by sitting outside and putting some of it to pretty use by making some lavender wands.
Thank you Helen – I think it might take me a while to get through this stash but I know where to come for a re-stock!
The HooterNinnies have been rather excited today. They all gathered round to see Curly stick the winners name on the end of his Hooter… is it you?
Turn on your sound and click the pic to see the secret selection process!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER!
I will contact you by email to arrange where/when/who etc!
