Christmas Giveaway


Ok folks, as promised here is the second giveaway. This time it is one of Cath's Xmas bags for Tesco filled with goodies.

For those of you who aren't crafty please do not be put off. I haven't decided what to fill the bag with yet and will only decide once the name has been pulled from the hat. I will then familiarise myself with your blog and your interests and will fill it accordingly so that it will be something you like.

To add a little interest tell me what you would like to see in your stocking on Christmas morning and pop your name in the hat. I will ask Miss Elizabeth to do the honours on Friday 5th December.

Good luck x

* Update* Lizzy will be drawing the name out on Saturday 6th December as I am away on the Friday.

Ooooh, I just love this, it's so exciting! Well, I would like a MacBook Pro in my stocking, but I don't think it will fit, so I'll have any unwanted little broken toy from long ago! That's my passion!
Thank you for your lovely blog and great, fun 'Give-Away'!
Best Wishes,
Liz

All little Jo really need are jammy dodgers and custard cream biscuits...

All I really really need is to be able to pop by here every so often and enjoy myself.

Thanks for all you share!

If George Clooney won't fit then a turkish delight, new magazine and bubble bath would be lovely.

Loving your blog - I'm a real newbie so a bit scared

Hen said...

Oooh, exciting! I'd like to see Nikki's Nostalga at the Stonehouse book, a lens set for my new sewing machine, a cotton reel holder, "Crocheted Accessories" book...I think I'd better stop there!
I spy the Leon cookbook in the background of your photo. It reminds me that I really must make some things from it, I do love popping in there for something to eat after I've been to Libertys.

Well, I'd be happy with a packet of Crispy Bacon Walkers crisps and a quarter of chewy lemon bon-bons - no really, I would!

Willow said...

I'm hoping Santa might bring me a lovely hardback copy of 'Tess of the d'Urbervilles' ... I think I've been good enough! :o)

Chocolates, of course. New mittens. An orange in the toe (like when I was a kid). Some cologne or other "smelly stuff" as my husband calls it. A gift certificate for the local quilt shop.
I hope I can be entered even though I don't have a blog up and running yet.

Josie-Mary said...

Ooooohhhhh I would like the lovely red sewing machine from John Lewis.... just like Mel!!!
:)

Lucy Bloom said...

Hi Donna, I missed your last giveaway so am definately entering this one. Despite my love of vintage and making sure everyone knows, I never get anything vintage in my stocking. So that's what I'd like, just a little something vintage...

Redwoodhouse said...

Jamie Redknapp...a girl can dream. What a lovely giveaway. Something sparkly in a turqoise box....again a girl can dream....Claire xx

Gem said...

Hmmmm, what would I like to see in my stocking? I have a list of craft books that I want so ideally I'd like to see them and all the supplies I'd need to go with them. Failing that, I'm sure Brad Pitt would be a good subtitute ;)

green phoenix said...

You are being too kind Donna!I don't suppose my saying I WANT A KITTEN will get me one but I'm telling everyone else so hey ho.
With blue eyes, please.

Janice said...

I'm hoping that my son brings me a couple of Cath Kidson bags and all the other English goodies that we can't get here in Canada and stuffs them in my stocking. That would be great.

Trac said...

I would like a time travel machine and a chilled bottle of very expensive Champagne (nothing under £500) to swig before my travels.

As David Tennant is good at all that time travel malarkey, he can be my chauffer, until I get bored with him.

So, I don't want much really! ;o)

Gigibird said...

I would like reservations for Christmas dinner at a posh restaurant so I wouldn't have to step foot in the kitchen!

Kristy said...

Now I feel a bit mean only offering an empty bag!

Country Cottage Chic said...

What a lovely giveaway!

I'd be very happy if my stocking was filled with little vintage things & chocolate!

The White Bench said...

Hi Donna! I missed the last giveaway, but can't miss this! Love Cath!
So FIRST I would like to have time to sew a beautiful Christmas stocking myself....! And inside, I'd love to find something vintage, maybe a little Teddy Bear which I adore (can you believe NOBODY has ever thought to a 'vintage Teddy Bear'??????!!!!!!!!).
Warmest wishes,
Monica.

Jenny said...

I'm hoping for a day off to do some sewing and relax. Fingers crossed :)

Cher said...

I would love an Ipod Touch.

andsewtosleep said...

For me it would be Kofi Annan. Very interesting to talk to as I slave away in the kitchen. Great to stop any bickering that threatens to break out when the family get together and definately so fair that he wouldn't cheat at Monopoly !!!
Hope your well Donna - I have sooo lost my blogging / sewing motivation. Just enjoying following everyone else in blogland.
Mary xx

Tracy x said...

mmmmm - perhaps another hot water bottle as it is so cold here in the Highlands, a little chocolate and a couple of minature donkey's and a female Shetland pony - if Santa could leave the livestock outside that would be an added bonus :)
another great giveaway x

CraftADDict said...

ikkinlala said...

I'd like to see some chocolate or a book or read or some yarn.

Margaret's Ramblings said...

How about a big Christmas sack of inspiration. Tat would be my dream. I get so inspired reading all the ovely blogs out there. I don't know how we managed before the big world wide web came along, LOL.

p.s. and some Amazon vouchers

Nostalgia at the Stone House said...

If it was a little vintagey trinket in my stocking ...I know I'd be happy...
I'm guessing you will be happy just to have a fireplace to hang your stocking from! Hope the decorators do a great job for you Donna!
Keep warm

(Bless Hen, what a sweet thing to say!)

Karyn said...

I'd love to find a vintage cup and saucer (to add to my growing collection!), some rubber stamps, fabric to make a new skirt for the spring and a cute little apron. Oh and a chocolate orange! Do you think Colin Firth would oblige by jumping in my stocking? Love the blog Donna, it's inspiring me to make an effort on mine!

Nicole said...

i like to find jewelry!!

prettyshabby said...

hmmm..a new womb please Santa..this one's rubbish..preferably wrapped in clingfilm so it doesnt spoil my lindt chocolate bunny (I'm easily pleased!) x

prettyshabby said...

Bunny? am I thinking about Easter already?
I meant reindeer!

Katy said...

oooh, fab! I often drool over your website, and can never decide what to buy!

On christmas morning in my stocking I would like (are you ready? It's thrilling!) a new self healing rotary cutting mat. Wow! Of course that is the sensible and practical answer. Now, if we're talking about not so practical and not so sensible then I'd really like a stocking stuffed full of ribbons, vintage buttons, notions, vintage wooden spools of thread, tape measures, and fabric. But unless I buy that for myself it's not going to happen!

nikki nairn said...

Gillian said...

I've just popped over from A Thrifty Mrs and would love to be included in your giveaway. I'm really hoping that the Sukie Perpetual Calendar and Anna Maria Horner's Seams to Me will be in my stocking this Christmas.

CrazyJaneDesigns said...

I'd like some proper cotton handkerchiefs, red with white spots. I'm fed up with the throw away tissues and think hankies should make a come back. and can I just please climb into the stocking and get some sleep, that would be perfect.!!

Simone said...

I would like to see bookshelves in my stocking. Yes I know it would have to be a pretty big stocking!

MaryPoppins said...

Ohooo how lovely :)

I would love Handy Andy please to do a few jobs for me, sshhh though please, we don't want Mr. Poppins to hear and we wouldn't want him thinking that he is not the master of all things DIY :)

Love Mary X

Trac said...

hehe - if there was a prize for the best answer here, my vote goes to 'andsewtosleep for asking for Kofi Annan! :O)

Brilliant!

Just wondering if Miss Elizabeth can be bribed in any way?

Pixiedust said...

Oh Can I enter please. In my stocking I would like, a slimmer body, with matching wardrobe, a new puppy, and an emma bridgewater teapot. XXX Pixie XXX

The Vintage Rose said...

Oooh Donna! how gorgeous is your blog, I just discovered it by reading Jan's and she mentioned it. I just love vintage floral material - particularly with pastel backgrounds and things like wooden cotton reels, lace, ric rac, old tablecloths and doilies. I also love cloth handbags, especially with roses. Sadly the bag I took to work today lost one of its fabric roses.

Clare said...

Gosh, where have I been? Your second giveaway - can't miss this one! I would like to see roses in any form! Clare x

Carol said...

Please include me in Donna.

Greedy Nan said...

If it could be something that can't be bought I wouldn't mind being more talented so that the art I visualise is something I can do. Well I know what I mean. Plus, I'm sure it's my turn to win something ...

claire said...

I would really like a little white girl kitten with a pink bow round her neck.

kelly said...

I would like to find the keys to a beautiful vintage car...and the car outside!

Suzie Sews said...

fabric, no ever buys me what I want....they always think...she has some of that... so not fair...
Love the bag

Kathy said...

Hi Donna, I would love to see Johnnie Wilkson in my stocking ... please! Kathyx

Jenny said...

I would love a Terry's chocolate orange! Or some Ferrero Rocher - I'm not fussy!

Sue said...

In my Christmas Stocking I would like to find the tidy fairy, plus a good builder and his team, to sort out my house!

Gingham and Flowers said...

Well this might sound a bit soppy but all I really want in my stocking is my lovely Hubbie-to-be.

Ronnie said...

Oh, my! Ging and Flo is a tough act to follow! I would like to find my hubbie in nothing but his stockings!
Also, a new primo Epson printer and a stack of their best paper.
Thanks to Buskitten Liz Gunby for introducing me to your wonderfully interesting blog.
