Free Giveaway and favourite things

As I have now reached over 1,000 views since I started my blog just before Christmas I have a giveaway to show my appreciation and give you my thanks for popping over and visiting me. The prize is for some yummy chocolates and biscuits made in Dorset (see below).

The chocolates are made by House of Dorchester who have been making chocolates since 1963. They sell in good food stores including Waitrose. My OH bought me some like the ones below for Valentines day, the mixture may seem a like unusual but they were delicious.  The fudges biscuits are also wonderful!

If you would like to have a chance of winning these goodies please leave a comment telling me what is your one of your favourite items and why. The closing date for this is Saturday 10th March when I will draw a name out of the hat to find the lucky prize winner!

To give you some inspiration here are a few of my favourite items from around the house.

I love blue and white china the bowl belonged to my Granny and the jug belonged to my Mum.

I have always wanted a camper van. This money box is the closest I have got and I am saving my pennies for one!

I loved this photo my husband took, so we had it developed onto canvas.

I have noticed when visiting other blogs that quite a few of them mention from time to time one of my favourite magazines Country Living Magazine.

 I have read it for many years and one of my favourite features used to be "Tales from a stone cottage" which chronicled life in a rural village. The last article was produced in February and the tales of a stone cottage are alas no more! Aly Wilks who wrote the articles does however have a blog so if like me you have been missing her, do go across and visit her. Her articles about life with all her animals will put a smile on your face!

Don't forget my giveaway - you have to be in it to win it!



  1. my favourite item is a old film camera that my housemates bought me in my second year of university. It reminds me of all the good times and all the pictures I used to take!

  2. My favourite items are the various family photographs I have scattered over my fire hearth. It keeps everyone close to our hearts even though 400+ miles separate us.

  3. Ohh, I love biscuits! My favourite things are probably my bits of antique furniture I have lugged all over the world with me! I have two double Victorian pine wardrobes (my husband hates them as they are so heavy and moving house over 10 times in 10 years has not pleased him!) I also have a chest of drawers (also antique pine) which I purchased when I was 16 (over 30 years ago!!) - they were the very first item of furniture I bought myself - I treasure them! Jules x

  4. Potting compost. There are too many cats where I live for dipping one's hand in earth and it still to be a pleasure so the next best thing - potting compost.

  5. I think my books are probably my favourite things.....and my family too! Juliex
