Birthday Blog Giveaway

Here is a very special treat for all you peeps!  I have a birthday this month and I have decided to have a blog giveaway to celebrate it!

I hope lots of you will enter.

The Winner will receive this very nice, but unloved bag which has been in my shop for some time priced at £32.00.  I decided that I was sure someone would like to give it a home especially, if they received it free of charge lol!  If it is not to your taste you could always give to someone as a gift.

The winner will also receive a pack of four patchwork fabric notelets and this beautiful Address book which has also been in my shop for a period of time.

Now I am also looking for a Runner Up to the winner, and the runner up will receive the following:
·        Musical notes purse
·        Square upcycled fabric notebook
·        2 packs of patchwork fabric notelets

What do you have to do?
It is very simple, I would like you to:
Visit my Folksy shop and then leave a comment to say which is your most favourite item.  (If you are familiar with my shop you may already have a favourite, so that will be easy!)
Also, just for the duration of this giveaway I am offering a 25% discount on ANY ITEM in my shop, refunded via PayPal, BUT you must use the code "BIRTHDAY BLOG” at the checkout, otherwise you might miss out on the discount. 

The giveaway closes at 9pm Tuesday 24th July and I will announce the winner soon after!


And  the winners are....
First of all, I want to say that the draw was done extremely fairly.  I wrote all the names of those who had entered on to a large piece of paper, cut it up so each name could then be folded twice and placed into a tall recepticle which was then shaken with great force!  My friend, with closed eyes, then pulled out one paper - the winner and then another paper - the runner up!

Congratulations go to Linda of Uniquely Yours who was the WINNER and Susan of Hearts and Cupcakes who was the RUNNER UP!

Many, many thanks to all of you who entered my giveway - I'm looking forward to the next one already!
