Prizes and girly give-aways!

I've received a lovely prize this week from the talented Saraeden..a little bundle of cute fabrics and pretty ribbons..including my favourite red and white polka dots and some kitsch cherry fabrics...all so lovely and beautifully wrapped..thankyou Sara!

I haven't decided what I will make with them yet but in the meantime I thought it might be nice to have a giveaway myself. (I was going to wait until I opened an etsy shop, but since we've been selling the house it got put on the backburner for a while).

The Giveaway! A Louise Loves fabric cover and a vintage heart hanger with velvet ribbon

I've 'met' lots of lovely people since starting this blog back in December and had some great comments left that have often had me in stitches! Certainly one way to cheer yourself up if you're feeling down in the dumps is to start a blog. So without being overly gushy,it's just my way of saying thanks really...

So you know the drill...leave a message on this post if you would like to be included and I will pick one of you lovely people to send a gift of my vintage fabric lavender hearts and a little lampshade cover (if you live outside the UK I will make you a heart without lavender just incase customs think its some kind of other herb!)

I'll pick a name out of the hat on the 27th of April (2008) which happens to be my birthday (yay!) so you have plenty of time... good luck!


  1. Oh jeeez I just found you and now slipping right in to the queue for a prize, what an incomer!

  9. Ooh, count me in! Absolutely adore your gorgeous lampshade cover and just can not resist a heart! I will be keeping everything crossed now!! Kathy

  10. This Louise loves the fabric cover for the lamp, what a good idea, you could have one for every day of the week. Red and white polka dot is one of my favourites too. I love having a blog, and cannot remember life without one now! I would love to be included in your giveaway. x

  11. I would love to enter the giveaway! Id love a lavendar heart, its one of my favorite fragrances but as i mentioned in my blog i am just no good at sewing curves!
    I hope you are well and are not getting the birthday blues which people seem to get, it was my b/d last weekend and its my mums on the 22nd, but neither of us celebrate them so to us its just another day!

  12. Count me in too - the fabric you received is lovely - can't wait to see what you do with it! - Hope the packing is going ok - take care - Natalie x

  13. Hey wouldn't it be a hoot if Louise (Loves) left a comment and ended up winning back one of her own lampshade covers?
    Please may I join in?

  14. Forgot to say my Birthday (and Stella's) is on the 30th April:)

  15. Oh gosh, I wish you hadn't told me about those mannequins, how depressing, I'd have been pretty sick about it for weeks! I guess I should consider myself very lucky to have got a mannequin, compared to your garden blower, that did make me chuckle! Maybe you could buy hubby a pretty teaset for his next birthday?
    Have a good week,

  16. Hi...I love those fabrics! Have a good day...Katie

    Carol xx
    Still loving those Louise Loves fabrics...

  24. only recently discovered your blog..i would love to be included in your giveaway.. best wishes, Sue x

  25. I did mean your Stanley with the S.
    I tried to follow your link but it could not be found.
    Like you I adore the Lakelands. I would not have little Guy were it not for my son. There are such lovely little dogs...we have four altogther in our family. I am hoping to breed them but at the moment with George my Choc Lab being very old, it is not the right time. I did buy a felt Stanley on Ebay last night and also got the pattern from a Cath Kidston site to male my own one!
    I would be grateful for any leads on getting a wooden Stanley as CK seem to have stopped selling them - I hope that I may be able to get one from old stock.
