A Giveaway ~ Sponsored by The Growers Daughter

There are so many things that I'm thankful for when it comes to blogging. I'm thankful for the escape from being "mummy" for a moment, and the chance to be writer, designer, shop owner, baker and creator for a while. I'm thankful for the constant inspiration and motivation I draw from you ladies and all your lovely blogs and shops. I'm thankful for the chance to run my own little shop (even if it may be tiny and online) from my home. One day, there will be a store, and it will be everything I'm working towards. But for now, this is perfect. I'm also thankful for all of you lovely women and your comments and encouragement. They mean so much to me.

So, to say thank you, I am sponsoring a giveaway over at Secret Garden Cottage. Follow the link for the details on how you can be entered to win.

Here is what one lucky reader will receive in the mail after Valentines Day:

The Hand - Stenciled, Jute Market Tote of your choice (see top photo).

A set of three French Farmhouse Tea Towels - a new collection coming soon to the shop.

I am so excited about these!

A Petite White Pitcher; Royal Dalton.

An Ephemera Pack full of vintage sheet music, dictionary tear sheets, French novel pages, French vocab cards and a collection of Growers Daughter Gift Tags, also coming soon to the shop.

And finally, a few special little surprises from a new Apothecary line coming in the spring - think Lavender!

Head on over now to enter!
