Emma Bridgewater Giveaway

I would like to join the giveaway party please. I think it is such a nice thing to do and is such a joy to giveaway and bring happiness to people. Would you like to own something very special, very pretty yes, then here we have it, my giveaway

The most gorgeous little Polka Dot Tiny Tea Cup Candle by the wonderfully talented Emma Bridgewater. It is all wrapped up pretty with ribbon and is brand new. Please leave a comment, being the nosy person that I am I would dearly like to know what your favourite flower is.

Mine is a Daisy, no other flower moves me like a daisy, I adore the tiny white petals, "he loves me, he loves me not " and the bright yellow, reminds me of the sun, making Daisy chains, what could be greater fun and the most special reason why I love the Daisy is a secret too special to tell.

Names shall be put in a pretty little hat on 17th september, let your blogging friends know and good luck to you all.

Overseas Welcome

  2. I love the Rose.....I had them at my wedding, now everytime i see one or have them bought for brings back that happy day!

    Lovely giveaway!!!


  3. What a fabulous giveaway. Well, my favourite is gerberas. I love the range of colours, and I love the simple stems. And sunflowers are a close second, but that's probably because gerberas and sunflowers are related. Hugs, Mary, have a wonderful day. xxx

  4. I like gladioli, sweet peas and informal flower arrangements. I had a flower called stephanotis in my wedding bouquet, what a gorgeous fragrance!

  5. Hi Mary
    My favourite flowers were all in my wedding bouquet, and they are freesia, rose, daisy. As melmel says whenever i see them it makes me think of a happy day.
    I also like jasmine as it reminds me of really hot sunshine in Spain. I love those verandahs that are covered in Jasmine and you can smell it as you go by!

  6. oh its so sweet :-)
    I love peonies I dont know why but just really simple and pretty :-) Must admit to loving tulips as well but mainly because they signal spring is coming!

  22. Freesias, Bluebells and Snowdrops
    are my Favourite.

    Hugs (((Mary)))

  23. Oh how beautiful. I love the candle cup. My favorite flower is daisy also. I love them because they are so dainty. Next I'd say Lillies come in second.

  24. Have you had a nice week?
    Did you get any cushions made with the fabric you bought??


  25. Hi Mary - I would love to win that little polka dot tea cup candle! My favourite flower is a Lily, or maybe a rose. I am a very lucky lady as my hubby has bought me a big bouquet today, full of both - Natalie x

  26. Hi Mary.I am so glad I found you just now-a lovely heartfelt blog!!An an Emma freak.Woohoo!!!!I must confess to being a Peony girl.Full fat ruffly petals, I always think of twirly frocks and petticoats.They were out of season when we married so I had David Austen Roses mixed in with Lizzies and tiny green berries.For the kitchen table though its Miss Daisy.Happy and friendly. : )

  27. Ashley bought me some peach coloured roses last week, and i have to say, they were the most beautiful roses i had ever seen. I don't so much have a favourite flower because i fall inlove with flowers depending on mood and season. But those roses are top of the lost at the moment.
