Giveaway Winner Announcement

All twenty names went into the golden tea light receptacle.  I gave them a good a shake and without further ado or hesitation I took the plunge and pulled out Amanda Claire from Amanda's Patch. 

Congratulations Amanda!  Please email your details to me so that I can get the key ring sent off to you.  I may get some more key rings made up to sell at my Linden Grove Mercantile blog unless I get distracted by paper crafting in the meantime! 

Thank you to everybody who takes the time to comment here, as I know your time is valuable.  Thank you also for your concern regarding my eye test.  I have to have further tests at the hospital to see if there is a problem with the back of one of my eyes but getting an appointment could be a long way off yet.  In the meantime I have updated my look with a nice new pair of designer glasses.  I may even colour my hair this weekend and paint my nails.  (I don't think I have painted my nails for about 20 years!)  Have a lovely weekend however you decide to spend it. x


  1. Congratulations to Amanda!

    You sound a lot more positive today, I hope you stay that way. New glasses and hair are always a tonic aren't they?

  2. Congrats to the winner.

    I need to colour my hair this weekend too. I don't especially enjoy it but it's worth it for the end result, I don't like being so grey.

  3. Congratulations to Amanda Claire!! I agree with Toffeeapple - doing something for yourself is a good way to feel better! I hope you have a lovely weekend, Simone!

  4. Congrats to the very lucky Amanda!
    I love getting new glasses (a bit sad I know!!).
    Absolutely Simone, get that hair coloured and those nails painted (something else I like doing), it will make you feel great!! :)
    Happy weekend,
    Vivienne x

  5. Thinking about you, Simone. And yes, you should absolutely totally pamper yourself!!!

  6. Congratulations to Amanda! Love the sound of your make over...always a cheery thing to do!
    Have a happy weekend.

    Have a good Sunday!

  8. What a fun giveaway! Congrats to Amanda!

    Your plan for coloring your hair and painting your nails sounds perfect. Enjoy!

    I also wanted to thank you so much for your kindness. It means so much to me.

  9. Just catching up with your last few posts.Sorry I missed the giveaway but am sure Amanda really could use the boost your lovely cross stitch key fob will bring.
    I heard today that each of us contains within our bodies enough energy to power a town if it could be harnessed. I like to believe that what energies we pass to others with our love and support is enough to lift the darkest soul to light. I am sending good thoughts and healing energy for good eyes now and forever.

  10. Just found your lovely blog. I'm really enjoying reading your posts.

  11. Congratulations to Amanda on winnning your lovely keyring.
    I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend pampering yourself, it's always great way to feel better.
    I came over to get the windfall apple recipe in one of your previous posts, I am going to give it a try this afternoon. x

  12. Congratulations to the lucky winner - i love the key fob!
    Good luck with the eye test, I hope you dont have to wait too long for an appointment.
    Its amazing how perky and younger i feel when i colour my hair - mine is multi coloured as I type - i have a thick line of grey on top - hate it!
    Like you i can't remember the last time i painted my nails (except my toes that is!)
    have a great week Simone!
