Giveaway and a lovely swap

Well, I thought I would do a giveaway to celebrate 200 followers...thank you all so much for following and commenting on my blog - it is really motivating and I appreciate it so much.


Since so many of you like the little Greengate plates I have been making, I thought that it would be a nice thing to offer as a giveaway, so here it is. There is a little shabby table, some little books - one is a cookbook, one is called "Shabby Chic" and the third is "Vintage Style" by Cath Kidson. There is a chocolate pot, a cakestand, and six large and six small Greengate plates. I really hope you like this giveaway!


To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is be a follower and make a comment on this post. If you feel like copying the picture and linking from your blog, then that would be great. I'll draw the giveaway winner on 19th September.


I was very very lucky this week, because one of my blog-heroes agreed to do a swap with me and look at the lovely, lovely things that arrived. Kim sent a gorgeous cake and some cake slices, some adorable cupcakes, and even a little bowl of icing and a wonderful shabby heart shaped board. I love it all, thank you so much, Kim!!! She is having a party at her blog at the moment and the pictures are to die for!!!


Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Thank you so much for stopping by. :-) You are all lovely to come visit and I really appreciate it.

Its still in the box, but hoping to get started on it soon. I love everything shabby and chic... and will be decorating my dollhouse in that style. I am already a follower! Hoping to start a mini/dollhouse blog soon.
