Hello peeps, hope you had a great weekend. I got a couple of pretty presents over the weekend......I love presents..........they don't have to cost the earth,...its the thought the counts!!!! I get quite a lot of pressies x x x x x
The better half came home with this big jug, I have quite a few things with this crinoline lady on now, and although this jug is very stained on the inside it is displayed high up so that doesn't show and it will do to hold flowers in.....thank you hubby x x x
My close friend Emma came home from her holiday in Turkey with this beautiful little hair clip for me, I have it in my hair today x x x

As I am new to blogging I wonder if anyone out there could give me some help.....I am thinking of doing a give away and was wondering how they work????, A pretty tea-cup and a few other bits. Also I have noticed a few bloggers talking about a swap...what are these????
Hope you all had a lovely weekend x


  1. :)))
    you give away anything you like, really. just be thoughtful of the wrapping and packaging and sending-it-to-the-winner costs.
    a swap is usually giving something of 'yours', against something of 'mine'. usually they come in an organised 'deal'. so if you find a blog with a swap opportunity, you may just join in!
    hey? and thank you for following. i wanted to tell you that; i'd almost forgotten!
    grtz, nadine

  2. Love your jug it will look great with flowers in it. I recently did a giveaway which was good fun. I just put everyone's name in a hat who left a comment on the posting about the giveaway and put a closing date on it. You will probably find you get comments from new readers and followers. Tilly Rose has recently done a swap on her blog and I have been paired with the Felt Fairy. If you read back over Tilly Rose's postings you will see how she did it.
    Good Luck

i love hearing from other bloggers and try to answer every comment x
