My 2 year Blogger-versary and giveaway ! ...

2 years ago today , i began this blog .
Quite by chance that i did start it ,
as i had just read about it in a magazine -
and i decided to create one that evening ,
just to see , and not really intending to stay
on here as long - truth be told ....
Two years on now , and so many things have
changed , my style of work , how i see things and
hopefully write a little better than i did at the
beginning ! Although i know i`m not one to go on
about things - all around the houses so to speak -
i can be abrupt in descriptions , but that`s my way ,
and what makes me unique ;o)
So - i have a give away to celebrate - in
true blogger fashion !!
I was up late last night creating this - as the date
dawned on me at 10pm ! So here is what i made
and i hope you like it ....
A soft leather deep red " wallet "
Size 8.25 x 4.75 "
That has a sewn thin strap to tie ,
with a handcut flower and vintage button trim .
It is a deeper red than the photo

Lovely red suede on the inside ..

And hand sewn edges ...

Perfect for keeping papers , cheque book
passport / holiday items in etc etc ....

To have a chance to win this ..
Please comment and say what you would use
it for - then i will use the random number
generator and announce the winner on
Wednesday 13th May .

Oh - and if you spread the word -
let me know and ..
you go in for 2 chances to win !

A huge thank you to all who visit me -
i have met and made many new friends -
and my life is richer with you all in it !

I'm so happy I get to go first!! :)

Wishing you a very happy blog-o-versary my little magpie -- two years is a record (for me who changes blogs like some people change their underwear!!) and I think it's natural that you would change and grow as you have blogged through those years.

I adore this little wallet...and you know me and red...I love me some red!! What would I use it for? Well, since I'm one who shoves receipts and ATM receipts and all her papers into her bag willy-nilly, I think if I had this I would use it for that and no more scrambling around when I need to return something!!!

I'll blog about this too -- over the weekend.

(and I owe you some emails..I haven't forgotten..I'm just way behind!!!) xoxoxo

Two years? That is great, congratulations :) Thank you for offering such a beautiful giveaway too, I love red, love red leather and I love what you have created.
I just sat for about 2 mins thinking what i would use it for LOL, my mind went blank. As a wallet of course, but then I don't carry much cash, so then I was thinking to fit my ATC collection, that would be great:)

Wow, 2 years of blogging already?! Congrats! The wallet's lovely. Why, it'll be handy for a stash of cash and cards when I go to the shops.

That is one tasty prize. It's quite large too, I think I would use it to store my two journals (I keep a gratitude one and a daily one), they are usually small-ish in size and it would be especially useful for keeping them together when I'm travelling. I will mention it over on my blog a little later today, this kind of thing is definitely for sharing.

I'd use if for my SMALL Altoids
lip gloss
Appointment calendar
Pink Bracelets..I love to give these
to friends
and my Ipod

I HOPE I WIN, I'm excited

Congratulations on two years of blogging! I love RED! I have a very small note pad I take with me everywhere (has a lovely Chagall painting on the outside). It gets lost and this would be just the place for it to live. If large enough, perhaps a hankie or two!

Congratulations! You have a lovely blog and I shall return often to enjoy your posts.
I would keep my tiny coin purse, lip gloss and keys - perfect for me! And red is one of my fav colors!
Thank you for your generosity :)
