Special Giveaway....




I have been so fortunate to win some lovely Giveaway's and would now like to give you the opportunity to win one of mine.


I have been busy gathering some pretties, and lazy olde me is even making something handmade for you :)So if you would like to join in, international, new friends to my blog, please do and Big Sister shall pick a winner in a week from a pretty tin.


Please leave a comment if you would like to go in the tin, I would dearly love to know what room is your favourite in your home and why, Ohooo I am a nosy aren't I :)


As you may know we are having some refurbishments here, so not any favourite rooms really, though a girl like me has to have a pretty place so my favourite room is My oops, Our Bedroom :) Yes I wake up staring at steel girders and trunking for the new wiring, but it is a place I can relax in, read a book by candlelight, listen to my Classic FM and write some pretty letters to very special friends.


For my friends at the SC Cafe who can't leave a comment, I shall do so on your behalf


Good luck


Thank you too to Country Bliss for the pretty award.
Thanks too to Rachel @ A Day In The Life Of A Krafty Gal for her lovely awards.

  3. I'd love to be entered into your giveaway.

    My favourite room is my dining room - we have such good times sharing meals with friends and family - my junk shop bureau full of fabrics and buttons etc, my beautiful dresser made by hubby and my wonderful computer hideaway that hubby copied for me from a magazine spread last year.

    Plus I can look out the fremch doors and watch the cats , rabbbits and chickens playing in the garden.

  6. I'm a new reader... and I'm loving discovering more and more people that enjoy the style I do :) I thought I was alone!

    My favourite room is the kitchen. It's always cozy and warm, the fabrics are dripping with cabbage roses and with the cheery SMEG fridge and being surrounded by my charity shop treasures the whole roomjust brings me joy.

  18. Hiya

    Thanks so much for the award, I'm beaming :D

    Would love to be in with a chance of winning the giveaway! My favourite room is my bedroom because I absolutely hated it when we moved in 2 years ago (dark matte terracotta walls - felt like a dungeon!) but now it is light and bright and has a CK bedspread and I'm just so happy to sleep in there.

    I hope you're feeling a bit better by the way, I know exactly what you mean about your son not wanting to sleep when you do!!! My little one was up at 3.30am this morning so I took her downstairs to watch TV, next thing I knew I was woken up by my eldest to find little one asleep on my chest on the sofa!

  23. I love my kitchen because it is pink, and cosy and pretty and I can spend hours in there pottering around listening to music, if only it was big enough for a sofa. I love it when it smells of home cooking and I try to make it smell like that every day.

  26. Thank you so much for my award, you are so sweet!
    It is so hard to pick my favourite room, it is going to be Joshua’s room as he has to go away too school in the week I sit in his bedroom and use his computer, and when I am in there I feel a bit closer to him, as I miss him a lot, I’m in there a lot when he is home aswell, trying to compete with an Xbox 360!
    And I love my workroom in the garden, and my front room sat in front of the fire and my bedroom, I’m not very good at this am I, and I do love to sit on Ben’s bed and have a chat.
    That’s me done!
    Thanks for the email, I will post it too you this week…love Lou xxx
    P.s I love sitting in the conservatoire aswell and watching the birds!!! xxxx

  27. My favourite room is the kitchen where so much happens..we chat over meals...I read blogs and chat on SSC and make many online and real friends and I do my paintings so everything I love happens in our kitchen xx

  28. I think my little craft room would be my favourite, as it's all mine to do with as I choose. Wish it was bigger though!

  29. I'd love to be entered into your giveaway!

    My favourite room is my kitchen ... it is the first room we have decorated in our flat and we spend most of our time in there. The walls are duck egg blue and cream, white furniture and lots of vintagey accessories ... and bunting (when I have finished it!) ... I spend so much time in there cooking and sewing - I love it!

  31. It's hard to choose between the living/dining room and the hall. The hall is the only 'done' part of the house - it's pale green with Laura Ashley Summer Palace wallpaper above the cream bookshelves. One of my dressers of china lives in there as well. The living room is starting to come together - my rescued furniture and lots of my pretties live in there, but I still need to replace the curtains, so the emphasis is definitely on 'shabby' chic!

  36. I'd love to be included in your giveaway.
    As to my favourite room, I think is probably the lounge in front of the woodburner at the moment - it's cosy, we still have so much to finish here and when our bedroom is finished I think that will be my favourite as it's in the roof of the barn with the beams showing and will be a haven of tranquility I hope!
    Take care.

  39. Thank you, Mary for the award, I'm still working out how to get it on my blog!! I would choose my kitchen because it's where most of life happens. It goes from the front to the back of the house so I have a view of fields and horses from both sides. I have yet to pretty it up though.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Well after a bit of thought I've decided that my favorite room has to be the living room. It's nothing very special to look at but it's the place where we (as a family) spend a lot of time together playing Games, laughing and joking, crafting and cuddling. and I'm sure it will hold many more special memories.

  42. Yes, i love those Peter Rabbit bits, occasionally i'll buy the biscuits for the boys, but your right they are pricy. I love going in there to get gifts for people, like unusual biscuits/ chocolates and lovely things to make up hampers and baskets. x

  43. Bless you Mary, of course that's OK (though I am blushing lol!!!). I hope it does inspire people to have a go :)

  48. hellloooooo

    I think my bedroom as I love using it like a bedsit! Ha ha takes me back to the old days when I lived in one room. Nothing nicer than going to bed early and watching tv, crocheting, sewing or reading, or listening to the radio. Then waking up in the morning. I can see the sea from my bed - yeah! Often very grey but nevertheless very lovely.

    Hope you are spit spot!

    Love Emma xxxxx

  49. Can I enter please. Only because I want to talk about my favourite room! My bedroom. Because it's full of pretty florals, and we finally got rid of the awful curtains a few months back and put up rosali ones, and I love them to bits.

  53. I love our loft room. Its like disappearing into another world, I quite forget sometimes where I am. Its also the only room in our house that is really toasty!

  54. now for me it isnt a room as such but what is in the room. in our lounge room we have 'our hutch' and it houses all of our treasures. it really is simply divine. i have several strands of different lanterns and when we turn them on we just get a great sense of HOME. we even turn them on in the daytime!! but i do love all of my house it really is the best investment.
    good luck to all the lovely bloggers out there and have fun giving. my hundreth post is just around the corner so i will be having a giveaway too.

  55. My fav room in our house is my studio/jade's bedroom when she's here. Because it's full of lovely natural light. I can create the little cupcakes can play and when Jade's here it turns into a girlie chatting, make-up and singing room and we can hide awy and gossip.
    I do also love my kitchen because it's where Ben proposed to me last year on my birthday in front of our little cupcakes. He did of course ask me again when collecting the ring after a size fitting in a pretty little park down the road. But the kitchen makes me smile everytime i walk in there.
    Have a lovely weekend sweetie.
    Big hugs,

  56. Hi my favourite rooms at present are my living room & kitchen.
    We're a bit upside down at the moment, as I am acquiring furniture, and lots of other things for my daughter, so we're in a bit of a mess!. She will be getting either a house or flat soon.( The sooner the better!!)
    Have a great weekend x
