A little something for you...

I’ve had my little stall in the Marlborough Craft Centre for about 4 years now. My best selling items there are these decorated pegs and in that time I have made literally hundreds of these.
Well, as my blog is just over a month old… and it’s nearly Christmas… and I’ve been lucky enough to win a couple of Giveaways myself…and I’ve always wanted to do a Giveaway… and especially to say Thank You for stopping by to everyone who has visited me… I’m doing a Giveaway… and guess what?...it’s these pegs.

There are two sets of 4 pegs, one set is decorated both sides and these are great as giant paper clips, or for holding the tops of food packets, or clipping socks together, or, well loads of uses. The other set are magnetic on the back and can be used to pin things to the fridge (or microwave). I have made them in festive colours of red and white checks and flowers.

There are a few other bits in the giveaway, which I’ve tried to keep to a colour theme.

As well as the pegs you will get:
A heart key-ring made by me from vintage French toile
A wooden block printed with the word ‘vintage’ (not made by me)
3 vintage paper doilies
A Laura Ashley scented sachet
A sheet of Laura Ashley Christmas Rose drawer liner paper.

Anyone who leaves a comment on this post up to and including Sunday 9th December will be entered in the draw so do have a go and Good Luck!

Update: the draw will take place at 9pm (GMT, UK) Sunday!

I’m hoping to list some of these pegs and a couple of other things for sale in a post over the next couple of days, so keep checking if you are interested. Here's a peek:

Some Product Testing:

Thanks to everyone who posted suggestions for my kitchen window treatment, you’ve given me some really good ideas to think about.

(p.s. Checking my Comments Settings I found that I had comments set to Google Users Only. I hope this didn't prevent anyone who wanted to from commenting on my posts. I have set this to 'Anyone' now, but maybe someone could explain to me about these settings and which one is recommended?)
