Birthday Giveaway!


at the beginning of this week I had an unexpected email
which began with the sentence
"I have purchased a few lovely things from you on eBay
over the last nine years (yes, it really is that long!)
and I came across your blog
through my good friend Julie's blog (The Cloth Shed)"

Nine Years? I thought. . .no surely not. . .but when I double-checked
the truth was plain to see- I started selling on eBay 10th Feb 2002!

The email was from Abby,
and yesterday she started her own blog My Spotty Pony

Thinking about starting blogs
I checked the date of my very first post. . .March 5th 2010

two birthdays- a great reason for a Giveaway!


So. . .this gorgeous glass and mosaic butterfly bracelet
is looking for a new home. . .


. . .along with a sweet little floral-framed Gisela Graham blackboard
and 1930s drawn threadwork and applique traycloth.


All you have to do is leave a comment and the winner
will be drawn on 5th March

This giveaway is open to everyone- overseas followers included :))

If you'd like to follow my blog or put the link on your
sidebar, that would be really lovely xx

I already follow - and just had my month of blogging birthday myself! Aah, well gotta start somewhere...

Congratulations and what a lovely giveaway

Annie said...

Congratulations Elaine, I can't believe you have only been blogging for a year, it feels as though I have been reading your blog for much longer. 9 years as an ebay seller is amazing, you must have had some beautiful things pass through your hands in that time including the lovely bag I still treasure.

I have been following your blog for a while now-what gorgeous give aways ! I can never part with anything I buy -all the things I own I enjoy and usually have their own story or celebration attached to them which makes them hard to part with !

Hi Elaine,

I know you have been on Ebay for a while as I have followed you there with your lovely goodies and even bought some bits from you so you were not new to me when you started blogging.

Must say I have enjoyed blogging with you in the year you have been a blogger so congratulations on your double birthday.

Oh and yes please can I bee added.

trashsparkle said...

Happy Two Birthdays! I'm waiting for someone to invent a machine that knows you want to list something on ebay, then photographs and lists it for you. Preferably while you sleep... Is it a boyfriend? :) The butterfly is so gorgeous - where did it come from?

Can't believe I missed this! Please enter me into your lovely givaway!

I forgot when I joined ebay so I've just checked & it seems my anniversary is coming up on the 25th March...I joined way back in 1999! Before Ebay UK existed & everything was in dollars & ebay was uncomplicated!
