Announcing a Linky Party and Giveaway!

Hello lovely people. I'm back in blustery old England and being greeted by lots of rain in my little corner of Cumbria!

Before I left I got my hands on a copy of the book 'Home-Made Vintage' by Christina Strutt from Cabbages and Roses. Now as you may have guessed from my last post, I'm a bit of a fan of Cabbages and Roses and this book has lots of lovely projects for the home - in this case, all styled in the stunning vintage inspired fabrics from C&R (swoon!).

I'd love to give this to one of you lovelies who are good enough to read all my ramblings - and I'd love to see what your favourite handmade and vintage home items are. So I decided to have a linky party and giveaway next weekend - and you're all invited to share the story behind your your most prized home items- whether vintage or handmade.

Yep - it doesn't even have to be made by you! I'm a bit obsessed with things that have a story - so if you made it, found it at a car boot, charity shop or market - then I hope you'll join in the linky party and be in the running to win this lovely book!

Just grab the button from the right here (that's the one - right at the top of the page) - add it to your sidebar and come to the party to show off your handmade prowess or second hand finding skills!

Have a great week!
