Happy Blogiversary

I realised a little while ago that my blog turned 1 at the start of October. I think a belated giveaway to celebrate is in order.

tote bag

This tote is made from black cotton drill and red Matroyska print Japanese craft cotton and is lined with a soft grey cotton poplin. It measures approx 16" by 13" and the handles are 18" long. I really like this size of bag for shopping, library books or just carting around your essentials.

To win it, leave a comment on this post by Friday 14th November. I'm taking a bit of a blog break this week to go to Melbourne for my brother-in-law's wedding. I'll be back on board next week to announce the winner of the tote bag.

Edited to add: I sent out the group details for the ornament swap on Sunday night around 8.15pm. If you have signed up and not yet received an email from me, please check your spam folder as I have heard that my emails are getting filtered for some people.

Has it really been a whole year? Oh my! It's been a year for us too- waiting for Michael to get a job, a year for me in my job. Enjoy your break!

Happy Anniversary, and enjoy Melbourne (how could you not!).

Happy blogging aniversary. It is totally addictive I find. Tell myself I have lots of other things I should be doing and have to read what everyone else has posted!

Thank you for the group addresses for the swap. Will be getting started while away visiting in Blenheim.

Be back later in the month.
