~♥~ Give-away! ~♥~

To celibrate that over 200 people chose to follow my blog (can you believe that?!?), I have prepared a give-away...

Two hundred has a 2 in it, so I made two sets of gifts, both in winter/Christmas-style. The wooden set contains a sledge (as some of you already had guessed), a box and some candy-canes (well, it needed some colour). By the way: if your car needs new windscreenwipers, don't trow away the old ones! Those have a rustproof iron strip, which can be very useful, for instance for irons on a sledge...

The second set is the metal set: a angel to hang, a decorative tree and a candlestick.

To enter the give-away you need to be a follower and leave a comment on this post before December the 5th (Dutch time). You may anounce this give-away on your blog and use these pictures for that, but you don't need to.

In the Netherlands we celibrate Saint Nicolaas on December the 5th. It's the origin of Santa Claus. It's a party where children get presents and families give eachother presents. A perfect day to draw the winners. I will write the names down of all contenders twice and get a bowl for each set. If you said to have a preference for the wooden or the metal set, I will put both papers with your name in that bowl. If you have no preference, each bowl gets one paper with your name. So you all have the same chance to win. (And no, it's not possible to win both sets)

Good luck to you all!

I have been silent for a while, only showing Norma's wonderful gift, but not my own work. But I have been busy and still am!!! I saw the number of my followers getting close to 200 and then passing it! A year ago, when I started this blog, I would not believed it if someone would have told me that I would get so many followers! I am preparing a Christmas&winter themed give-away, but I'm not ready yet, so here some hints to make you curious:

So let me welcome my new followers:

Gift from Norma!

Some time ago I send Norma some items, and she told me that she would make me a swap.  She made me a daybed for the beachhouse:
Isn't it just lovely? The matress can be reversed, and the other side has the complementary fabric:

The beachhouse is still under construction and quite empty, so I have nothing yet to show the daybed in a scene, except for the kitchentiles. But the colours mix so well!

Thanks again Norma! I am very happy with it!
