Blog-o-versary


It's my blog-o-versary! I'm thrilled that I've reached my first anniversary. It could quite easily have drifted off into the far too hard basket but I've persisted.

I'm got to know some wonderful people through blogs, especially the amazing community of Australian bloggers (from Melbourne in particular: what is it about Melbourne that gets people blogging?) and also from Europe and the US.

I've had such great fun and have appreciated the support when I've gone a bit woogly, the inspiration and the creativity.


There is the lovely tradition of a giveaway on a blog-versary so who am I to stand in the way.

So here is my humble offering: a linen teatowel from my collection, a wodge of my button collection, some ribbon and fabric plus two Adorn magazines (I've read them already, is that OK?). Plus some Haigh's chocolate (if you like chocolate - let me know either way) that I'll buy the moment before I post the parcel (otherwise I'll eat it!).

Please leave a comment and I'll pick someone out of the hat on Sunday evening.*

Edited to add: I'll leave comments open till midnight and post the winner tomorrow.

Congratulations!!!!! I'm loving all of the Aussie blogs that I've come across since I started blogging too, especially yours... I've loved popping by and checking out what you've been up too, you're such an inspiration!! Who would of thought I'd meet so many like minded people when I started my little adventure in blogland 12 months ago. I LOVE Haighs chocolate!!! Everything your giving away looks great, you're soooo generous..

Congrats! I've never even thought to do a 'blog-o-versary' give-away - I might just be a copy cat and do one in July (I suspect there will be no 'wodges' of anything included though, despite how cool that word sounds.)
