Birthday Giveaway - Are you the Winner???

OK - It was actually 6.01am when I hit the Random Generator widget-thingy...

And it came up with no. 12

And the 12th person to comment was Nan G at Froggy Designs, so well done Nan :)

Thank you to all who joined in - I really enjoyed having a giveaway, so I know there will be another one soon :)


It will be my 49th birthday on Sunday 28 April, so I wanted to have a special giveaway...


This recycled silver and copper necklace was lovingly made by Lynda at Private Road. The chain is about 18" long and the pendant about 2". It has a great rustic, funky feel to it, and I want someone to have it :)

So just leave a comment on this post, and your name will go in the hat.

I will draw the winner on Wednesday 1 May - the auspicious day of Beltane/Mayday - at 6am BST, which is the time Magdalen College Choir sing in the May morning from the top of Magdalen Tower, Oxford - a 500-year tradition, which is one of the most magical sights I've ever witnessed in my life...

Good luck, and I leave you with some more pics of the prize necklace - enjoy :)

Happy Birthday Claire. This is a wonderful metalwork necklace and it's so generous of you to share it.

The first of May is a special day in parts of the states as well, but for different reasons. When I was a child we would celebrate May Day with posies to give to people we loved. Sometimes we would knock on doors (and runaway) and leave them as a surprise.

Have a great day on the 28th!

I just made my way to your wonderful blog via a link from a friends. Happy Birthday and I hope the day is filled with love, good food, great family and friends and lots of cake.

Blessed Beltane to us who celebrate and if not, have a great May Day. I have fond memories of May Day from elementary school back in the '50's. It was beautiful, filled with spring flowers wrapped around a May Day pole and gorgeous silk ribbons.

The necklace is gorgeous and I can't imagine parting with it, but thanks for the opportunity to win.
