Yay 50!!!!

I am so pleased today, because I now have over 50 followers. I think of you as friends though!!

I am surprised, because when I started blogging I was sure that nobody would want to read anything about me!!

But I wanted to try anyway, and I am so glad that I did!!

As always you lovely ladies in Blogland have been welcoming, supportive and kind: and kept reading and commenting on my posts - that has been the best bit!!!

So, to show how grateful I am for your support and kindness, I decided to host a 'thank you giveaway'!!!

As you all know, I have been out once or twice lately, and my will to shop has returned, I have purchased with blog friends in mind!!!!

What do you think?

Have your very own afternoon tea with a cute 'tea for one' set and some CK Napkins, there are also loads of treats to make in this little book of English Teatime Recipes!

If you would like to be included in the give away please leave me a comment at the end of this post by midnight 12 March 2010!!!

The winner will be announced on 15 March 2010!!!

Good luck my dear friends and thank you for your lovely comments and love!!!

Kindest wishes and love

Many congratulations Angel! Your blog is so wonderful to follow and is always lifting the spirits, so please don't stop! Have lovely day! xxx said...

Oh you must be getting stronger and better if the will to shop has returned! Lovely giveaway, someone will be a lucky bunny! Re my 80 yr old second cousin, yes her hip op has whacked the wind out of her sails, somewhat! Her leg has swollen with fluid quite badly, she is on antibiotics now, and she needs us rallying round to help her at the moment. Have a lovely weekend friend! Suzie xxx

I think you should test bake a few receipes from teatime treats - just to be sure- you know- in the interests of thorough research! :-) They are a lovely set of books - I have the one for Apple Recipes which is great in the autumn when we have apples everywhere! t.x

I felt just as you did when I first started my site. Never in a million years did I dream of 5 followers much less 50 but we underestimated the kindess of bloggers. Their the most beautiful people in the world.
Love what your having for a giveaway...I think it is perfect.
So please do enter me and I will put it on my sidebar

Two such wonderful achievements. Being up to shopping so soon after your op, I really admire you for this AND THEN 'greeting' your 50th+ follower, well done but then it's hardly a suprise as you have such a warm, welcoming blog. Please include me in your giveaway.

Please enter my name in the drawing, I would be so thrilled to win this beautiful teaset of love from you. Any one of us will be so lucky. Thank you for sharing with me. Have a beautiful blessed day. Country hugs sweetie..>Sherry

Wow 50 bloggers who are now friends, its very exciting this blogging I love it to bits as well. I just adore reading what you get upto. Tea Tea my favourite cant get by without one in the day/night. xx

Terra said...

This is my first visit here and the teapot and book are lovely. The expense to mail them to me here in California would be exorbitant, I am sure.
Happy 50 followers and I aim to celebrate my own follower numbers (when they reach 100) with some books to give away soon.
