Thank you




for joining in with my little giveaway.




It was lovely to discover a few new blogs and tempt several of you out in public and it was rather amusing to see that some of you thought winning the cover would be the perfect excuse to go buy an iPhone, I like your logic l
adies, makes perfect sense. A little like having to buy a new outfit to wear with the shoes.

So it was time to draw a name, I decided to take a little break from the mountain of household chores I was caught up in and do the draw while the light was still good for photographs.

I spent a long time looking for my beloved fountain pen and accused the small child, who is supposedly sick and therefore off school today, of having taken the said beloved fountain pen. I looked and looked and finally I found the pen, it was wedged between the pages of my diary, ahem.



But then I thought it might be much simpler and rather clever to use a random number generator. So I spent a long time looking at such things on line. But I was defeated and overwhelmed by such mathematical technology.

However all that time on the computer did give me the idea to copy and paste the entrants into a Word document, print and cut.



I think by now it will be no surprise, Dear Readers, to learn that
I spent a long time trying to do this. Thankfully the small, sick child eventually took pity and came to help.



And I didn't have any problems cutting up the paper, that part was really quite quick.

But I did spend rather a long time re-homing all the things that used to live in this bowl. You know, the balls of wool, odd screws, bits of Lego, scrunched up sweet wrappers and unidentifiable bits of something.



So finally, without further ado, the sick child assisted once more and drew a name.....




and the winner of the iPhone Cover is........
Jane, who blogs At Upper Pond

Congratulations Jane, please drop me an email with your address and this little cover will begin winging its rather frozen way towards you.

Thank you to all of you who commented, it was lovely to hear from you. And finally, there are, of course, more phone covers to be found in the Handmade at Poshyarns shop...

Unfortunately I somehow missed your giveaway - but I did enjoy this post of how you chose the winner! I don't think I could do the random number generator thing either! Have a lovely weekend. Helen x

Just popped in to catch up on posts and say hi. I was traveling for work and finally am starting to feel somewhat caught up this week. I am supposed to be doing homework but quite honestly prefer looking at that bunch of tulips in your breakfast post below :) Happy weekend my friend.

How lovely Jane, enjoy. I've put a cover on my wish list (Valentine, Wedding Anniversary and Mothering Sunday all coming up so I am quietly hopeful!)

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious
if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you
can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you're utilizing? I've
loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers
and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?

Cheers, I appreciate it!

I leave a leave a response whenever I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to
valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's triggered by the fire displayed in the post I looked at. And after this article Untitled. I was moved enough to drop a thought :-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it simply me or do a few of the comments appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you make a list every one of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
