Giveaway - Gifts for You on My Birthday

Giveaway Gifts
This week is blog giveaway time! Last week I celebrated my birthday.  I’ve had far too many to count the candles, but I had a wonderful party on the weekend with my family - with an indulgent birthday cake, favourite foods cooked by my husband and great company. ( In case you were wondering about the writing on the cake , Por Por = Chinese grandmother) 

  I also got great gifts from  my family and friends. There seemed to be a bit of a theme this year – with many of my gifts and cards depicting matryshoka ( babushka) dolls and tea drinking.  

As it is also winter here in Australia,   it was easy for me to  decide what I could offer as gifts  in this birthday giveaway. All the gifts are handmade by me.

Gift 1 - two little fabric matryshoka dolls 
Gift 2- a little bag made from colourful teapot and teacup fabric . The design is called a jester bag, but it is suitable for carrying small craft projects, a tea cup or even some tea making supplies! 

 Gift 3 - four little tags I made for Tag Tuesday much earlier in the year,  for the 'snow' theme. 

All you need to do to win one of these prizes is to leave a comment including your first name and an email  contact - go to the comments at the end of this blog post.

  18. Happy birthday for last week! Your cake made me smile because it's the kind of cake my mum would love and my children call my mum Por Por too. They have insisted that when I am a grandma, that I must also be called Por Por.
