A bit late but a Giveaway all the same (or Two)


Oh my goodness. I am 4 days into my 39th year and I feel like it is whizzing by already!

I’m sure you are all fed up with me going on about my Birthday. The celebrations. They have.not.stopped. A day out for the day to Bury St Edmunds to visit the best Tea Shop ever, a night out at a gig to see the loudest band ever. A weekend away in my Home on Wheels. Tomorrow there is another meal out with friends, and the mail has not stopped coming.

Photos will be shown. Promise.

But for now I know this is all you want to see. What am I going to give you by way of sharing some of the Birthday Love?


Well this little package will contain..

A copy of Sept issue Country Living, So you can dream of that white picket fence….A copy of Sept issue Coast, so you can see what it’s like to live at the sea side…A set of cute notelets, so you can give some mail love to someone… and a set of magnetic pegs to make your fridge look cute!

There that’s it. Fancy that? Course you do. Why wouldn’t you? It’s FREE after all!

All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favourite magazine is.

AND here’s a little heads up for you. There’s a whole other separate Giveaway going on at

Our Favourite Things

Where you can win these vintagie (is that even a word? the red squiggle says not, but i kind of like it) goodies.



There. So you see. It’s not all about me. As much as I would like it to be!

I have to go and do some work now. (Yeh, I know, you thought I never did much of that didn’t ya!?) It’s a bit late to visit you all now, I’ll be round tomorrow.



  1. hi.
    i've been trying to comment on your other blog but the comment box isn't coming up. no idea if it's me or your blog. thought i'd let you know. :)

  2. Ah, happy belated birthday, pretty! Hope you had the best time?!
    Feel hugged and kissed. :)

    Also, count me in - that giveaway of yours is just great!


  3. Yayyy for giveaways! And enjoy your birthday, and stretch it out as long as you wish!!! :-)

  4. Any excuse for a party! Glad to hear you had a good birthday and please enter me in your giveaway! Come and enter mine as well if you fancy a cup of tea!

  5. Oh, forgot to say that my favourite magazine at the moment is Sew Hip, or maybe Mollie Makes, or perhaps Country Homes and Interiors,then there's Crochet Today, Country Life has to figure in there somewhere I guess and my friend has just introduced me to Style at Home. Do you think I might be addicted to magazines?

  6. My favourite magazine is Frankie magazine a Austalian mag full of pretty things of all genres.

  7. hi birthday girl, my favourite magazine is an Australian one called Inside Out...beautiful, not boring interiors.

  8. My favourite magazine is the Donna Hay magazine. She creates such amazing recipes and they're so simple and delicious! It's the only magazine I have a subscription too :)

  9. My secret favourite magazine is Good Food. I just can't help myself!

  10. I'm so happy you're having such a happy time Claire, you so deserve it!

  11. I think Elle Decoration has to be my most fav mag. It's been a magazine that I used over 20 years ago when I was a photographic stylist and i'd drool over it wishing I could do cool photo shoots in lovely homes.

    Not quite sure how I drifted into teaching!

  12. well happy late birthday, pretty friend! love country living:) fingers crossed!

  13. Thanks for the heads-up! I would LOVE to enter this lovely giveaway! Cassie sometimes sends me a British mag and I get very excited :)

    My favourite magazine to read here in Canada is Real Simple. It's full of lovely pictures and great ideas for keeping life simple, clutter-free, healthy and happy.

    PS: Glad you had such a happy birthday. I like to make mine last at least a month...

  14. Such a sweet giveaway :)
    I love magazines, seriously I'm a hoarder!!

    Hmmm... It's so hard to narrow it to just one, but I am a Hollywood gossiper and I love my handsome Hollywood hunks therefore I'd have to say UsMagazine :)


  15. Belated happy birthday to you!
    I think Coast is one of my favourite mags, but I'm very fickle and a sucker for a pretty cover!

  16. My favourite magazine is Quilting Arts

  17. I think my favourite magazine is good homes, only because i love looking at the beautiful rooms and dreaming mine might look like them some day.

    X x

    My fave mag is Real Living or Shop til You Drop. I should send you one sometime soon. :)
