Can I Have A Drum Roll Please....

I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful, encouraging, honest and special comments. Each and everyone of you has really helped me. I guess I am quite a deep person and for me aspects of that have to reflect in my Blog. Maybe I shall have a separate deep blog for all my shadowy moments and come here for my fun and frivolity :)

Talking of fun and frivolity can you see yourselves all up there, we would have a fun olde night wouldn't we if we all met and had a party I am sure of it. Don't you all look sweet. I used my favourite pen to write your name in pink or blue and each of you had a little good luck heart. I placed you all on one of my favourite lacy cushions, ready to put you in a pretty tin. We all get involved, well alright Big Sister and I and then whoever is in the room, but we love Giveaways here and enjoy finding out who has won.

So here you are, popped into the tin.

My, and what a special and pretty tin you went in too. Please click to enlarge if you would like a better look at the pretty scene. I gather it is very old, I love it so much and I paid 50p from a car boot sale for it.

We all gave you a good Shake 'n Vac :) And a winner was drawn by Benny Bear and Big Sister.

Well done to Summerfete

We were far too excited to leave it at that, so decided on a surprise 2nd winner.

Well done to Vintage Tea

I shall gather my pretties and send them out to you by special blogger post :)

I would dearly have loved you all to have a little something, so I shall send you a little hug and thanks for joining in on my Giveaway, if that is alright :)

Please, if you have a spare minute or two could you say a quick hello and welcome to a very special person, my dear swap partner Sew Hot Mitmot from the SC Cafe. You may remember she sent me the most gorgeous CK Esque swap here She is truly the most amazing crafter and has a wonderful heart and I am so pleased she has taken this journey over to Blogland.
