giveaway time

Better late than never!

In celebration of my five year blogoversary (or is that blogiversary???) I have put together a little bundle of sweetness. There is an assortment of fabrics including some vintage Holly Hobbie and vintage clown print, some cosmo strawberries and a sweet little japanese goldilocks print. Some vintage patterns - the ones pictured are size newborn, 1 and 2 but if the winner would like some other sizes I will do my best to accommodate. I have vintage patterns in most kids sizes up to 8 and also some ladies sizes mostly from the 1970's if you would like those better. I have also included two brand new patterns. The first is the lovely hello birdie pattern by Lisa over at the red thread and the second is a pencil roll pattern from pink chalk studio.






I will also include some vintage storybook cards similar to these and if the winner just happens to be in Australia I will include a little vintage tea cup and saucer from my collection. I haven't decided which one to say good-bye to yet, but I promise it will be pretty.

Now the kind of giveaway I like best is one that doesn't make you jump through hoops. So you don't have to follow me or tweet me or do anything of the sort - heck you don't even need to be a regular reader. Just say hello in the comments on this post and you go in the draw. I will leave it open until next Friday night the 29th of July. I will post anywhere in the world (except for the teacup) so go on, toot your party whistle and say hello!

I remember having a similar conundrum back in the day when I was a sub-editor on a magazine. The big dilemma was chocoholic -v- chocaholic, shopoholic -v-shopaholic. Clearly, I worked for a women's magazine.

5 years! You deserve long service leave. Not that I'd like you to disappear, mind you...

Hi, I was amazed when I found your blog, and saw the name: lottielulu! When my daughter was learning to talk, she called my sister (her Auntie Lu) Lottielulu, the only way she could say it. Daughter is now 37 and a mother herself with a one-year-old of her own. Happy Blogiversary, and love the giveaway to gladden a grannie's heart.
