Happy Birthday Giveaway

I have had such a great birthday that I want to share such a happy day with you. I am giving away from this blog one of my handfelted brooches/pins. One just like those pictured here or in my etsy shop ( in your own choice of colours. The ones in these photographs have unfortunately all been sold, but I have more in progress. All you have to do to win one of these fabulous felt brooches/pins is leave a comment and name your favourite colour combinations. A person's name will be chosen at random next Sunday morning 2 August and that person will be the winner.

Here are some of my great birthday gifts. Having mentioned to my friend that I had nothing pink in my life, I received from her a pink pig eraser, a pink clock/timer and a computer mouse pad, depicting a gorgeous Chinese girl in pink.

And everyone knows how much I love babushkas and matryoshkas so this bag from my family seems made especially for me.
Lots of flowers, perfume, a massage voucher and a Country Women's Association Cookbook and such an extravagance, a new fountain pen (with real ink) from my mum. Breakfast with friends, and afternoon tea with family ... Thanks everyone - it's been a really wonderful birthday
