Blog Giveaway!

So as promised I did mention a while back that once I hit 60 followers I would hold a blog giveaway. What once started as a personal journal of make do and mends I did not know how much interest I would get and did not really intend on people finding me. To be honest I didn't realise that there was a network of people out there who was on the same wave length as me that shared the same interests. Well I was wrong and not only have I learnt so much from other bloggers and my followers I have enjoyed reading all of your personal posts too. So I guess in a way this is a little something personalised to say thank you for all of your kind comments and interest over the past two years. A friend of mine has started making these lovely personalised plaques and sells them in Whitby and Scarborough. I asked her if she could make one personalised to the winner and have decided to pick two lovely followers. She has heart shaped and rectangle plaques all customised with coloured gingham ribbon. This would be such a lovely gift for Christmas if you chose to pass it on, either way good luck.

The Wood Mouse Plaques

Give away ends on the 9th December 2012.
