I'm back (at last) and a give away!

Hello dear bloggie friends - and a happy and healthy 2011 to you all.

Firstly, I'd like to pass on my sincere thanks for your kind comments and support shown to me and my family after the loss of my sister in law - you really cannot realise how much this meant to us.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart xx

I'd also like to offer a big welcome my new followers :o)  It's so nice to think that folk are interested in my ramblings!

It's coming up to my first blogaversary....and to celebrate I'd like to offer a 'give away' to my followers.  I have been 'collecting' some (nice) things together for a while now with this in mind and think that I'd like to offer two packages of  small mixed gifts to say thank you for all of your support over the last year.  
To enter you need to be a follower of this site and leave a comment on this post.  Each person is allowed one entry.  Then on the 20th January I will place each eligable name entered into a hat and pick out two names, then I'll post the names of the winners on this site and ask you to contact me so that I can post the package off to you.  Good luck!  Here's some photos of some of the goodies to whet your appetite.  (I will try and send the gifts I think applicable to you).  Click to expand the photos.

Some of the goodies....
A closer look - damask napkins and beautiful Nottingham Lace Daughter lives there :o)

A pretty 'cupid' dish, an 'English Lady' scarf, and a glimps of a Staffordshire Enamel framed picture.

Good Luck!

Sending my very best wishes to you all :o)

What a lovely giveaway! I will not enter because I wouldn't want you to have to pay international shipping-- but just stopping by to say hello! Have a good day.

Thank you for becoming one of my new followers. I love GB and would love to visit again. My late husband and I went on a Young Farmers Tour in Great Britain and were lucky enough to stay on some of the farms where our visiting Young Farmers lived.

I would love to be a winner of something easy for you to mail to Colorado! Please include me in your drawing. ♥♫

You know each time I visit your blog I so wish, even more than I usually do, to come to Staffordshire. Some day I will!

The lace is stunning, Rose. What a generous giveaway.

Smiles to you,

Hey there! I miss keeping up with all of my blogging buddies. I was talking with a friend earlier today about all of the crafty stuff I miss since I've gone back to work. Writing is what I miss the most. It's too bad we can't get paid and get insurance coverage for writing our blogs!

Sorry to read about the loss of your sister-in-law. You're in my thoughts!

Take care and thanks for checking on me!

I would just love to be considered in this giveaway. You have so many beautiful items included.

I'm hoping you will now be able to go on with a renewed sense after such a very sad loss in your life.
