Giving Away My Hearts - Giveaway is now closed!

During the Christmas holiday in 2008, you would think there might have been better things for me to do than starting this blog! It has changed my life, and knocked me head over heels in-love with blogging! It's like having a child; you will have it forever.  Does that sound right? 

I have been rambling here for over 5 years! I never thought anyone would be interested to read about my passion in creative textiles, quilting, stitching, travelling, natural dyeing and whatever else I ramble about. To celebrate 5 years of blogging I will give away 3 of my eco-hearts that I created, dyed, stitched and sewed into loving hearts. 

Three hearts from the picture below are to give away. One heart for each winner. Good luck and thank you for visiting...


To enter to win my hearts please leave me a comment and make sure your comment is not a no-reply comment because I need to get in touch with you if you win. You have until Sunday 16 Feb. 2014 to enter. I will announce the winners on Monday 17 Feb 2014. I will post internationally so please enter.

Thank you Mr Blogger/Google. You so generously provided me with a tool to express and share what I do through blogging. It's obvious that I haven't reached blog burn out yet! Thanks to my readers, friends and family to visit and leave comments to encourage me to keep blogging. 


Lucky find for good ending: This week's lucky find are these  Wabi Sabi sugar and milk set. How cute are they? Usually when I find something I like, but don't need! I would leave them where I found them until next time I go back. If they are still there and I still like/love them, I know it's time to take them home. These will be handy to use when serving tea or coffee in bed. Enjoy.

Until next time
Nat

I do the same thing when I'm shopping! By walking away I have to a) remember it long enough and think about it enough to purchase and b) find it there and know it is meant to be!

Congratulations your blogaversary! It's a wonderful world, this blogging thing, isn't it? I am so very glad I found you. Here's to many more posts! (And drawings -- I'm wishing me luck!)

What a wonderful give away. I have been making some hears and putting a pocket in the back--so I can write words of encouragement to someone who needs it. I call them "healing hearts". I would love to win one of yours-- to keep for myself.
