I mentioned a while ago that going past 5,000 blog views was a reason to celebrate and I was going to have a giveaway for that (I'm now past 5,500); I have also mentioned in the past that I would have a giveaway to get your views on some brooches/corsages I'm making. So, using the SMS giveaway event as a platform, I will mark all these things with this giveaway.
I have 2 brooches to giveaway to 2 entrants. This one is made from layers of cotton and satin topped with a felt circle and a vintage button.
All I'd like is for you to tell me which one you like best and why (if you know why) to give me some idea of the style that would be most popular. I'll choose one winner who will get the brooch they prefer then another winner who will get the other one, whether it was their first choice or not! I wouldn't like to exclude my loyal overseas followers so I will send anywhere. As requested by SMS, I'll leave the giveaway open until 25th May and post the brooches on 30th.
Now for some news of what's been going on around here. Just one item of news really. Remember I told you my DS had started a gardening business? Well, on Saturday morning he headed out to do a hedge cutting job 5 minutes away. Twenty minutes later the phone rang and it was DS who told OH he'd cut his leg!!! I was frantic until I spoke to him myself!! Luckily, it wasn't too serious but it wasn't very pleasant watching him have 3 stitches put into his leg (or for him having them - the local anaesthetic didn't work very well). The lady doctor laughed when he pulled his trousers down to show her the wound - I think it was relief that it wasn't a bigger injury but DS thought she was laughing at his baggy, Beano jockey shorts. Now what was it your mother always says about underwear and getting knocked down by a bus?!!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway and good luck.
Bye for now
Edited to add: Thank you for all your fabulous comments!! This giveaway is now closed and a winner will be chosen and notified shortly. Teresa x
