First Giveaway-Kaffe Fassett and Cath Kidston

First of all let me apologise, this post should have happened yesterday but things happen sometimes and things don't go to plan. Anyway yesterday was my first blogiversary and it also coincides with me having 100 lovely followers. I am amazed by both things, I never dreamed a year ago that I would still be here a year later and certainly not with 100 people actually reading my blog. The last year of blogging has been amazing with it's up and downs but I have become 'virtual' friends with some wonderful people and have met a few of them in person which has been a real bonus. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog and thank you for taking the trouble to leave a comment and offer support and encouragement, it is truly appreciated.
As I am celebrating my first year of blogging as well as having 100 followers I thought it only fair I offer a choice of two giveaway prizes.

First of all is the 'Vintage' giveaway......

This giveaway wouldn't be complete without a little bit of Cath so I have included a set of her latest postcards and a little mirror. Of course there has to be some real 'vintage' so there is a pretty embroidered brooch, a hand painted slightly 'shabby' deco powder pot and sweet little crocheted doily.I have also included a great notebook I bought from the Bodleian Library shop in Oxford on Sunday. The cover shows different vintage book covers.


The second giveaway is the 'Crafty' giveaway.....

This includes a copy of 'Kaffe Fassett At The V&A- Knitting And Needlepoint'. This book has beautiful photographs as well as the needlepoint and knitting patterns. It was published in 1988 so is obviously quite old but I think it is still beautiful and full of inspiring ideas.

Also included is a pretty, vintage Huntley And Palmers biscuit tin. It is decorated with pink and blue anemones and is in great condition. The tin will come filled with haberdashery bits and pieces, old lace, buttons,wooden Sylko bobbins and ribbon. There is also a sweet little vintage needle book embroidered with flowers and a pair of Laura Ashley crocheted doilies.

I have photographed some of the lovely pictures in the Kaffe Fassett book just to give you an idea of what's inside.








If you want to join in the giveaway just leave a comment on this post. Please say which giveaway prize you would like, either 'Vintage' or 'Crafty'. If you want to enter twice for a chance of winning both prizes that's fine but please give my giveaway a mention on your blog or link back to it.
Many Thanks and Good Luck.
Names will be drawn from a hat on Thursday 1st July and the giveaway closes at midnight on Wed 30th June.
