A Flowery Giveaway


Thank you one and all for your very kind wishes 
during my recent trip to New Zealand.
It meant the world to me :)

I am finally getting my feet back on the ground and 
as you can see below...I have been having a few creative moments.

I picked up these lovely, flowery, summery shopping bags at the
The English love their shopping bags and I have to say this one is a beauty.

In the spirit of being environmentally friendly
and to say thank you, I am offering three bags as a GIVEAWAY.
(Bike not included :))



I have a few other little surprises and an apron too!



All you need to do is leave a comment.
It is that simple.

If you would like to leave more than one, I would be delighted.
The more the merrier.

I am off again in a few days so to make life easier,
I will close the Giveaway on Sunday
August 15 at 6:00pm (UK)

I thank you and Tika thanks you too!


The result of a 10 year old boy and a summer's day :)

  1. How nice of you dear Jeanne to think of us and also have a giveaway :) I would love a wee bag. But without that also I would have commented anyway. You are very kind indeed!

    Let me hope for the second time.

    Joy always.

  4. Oh Jeanne,
    I LOVE the bags. In this environmentally friendly age, it is so important to have shopping bags and reject the plastic ones, so this is a wonderful giveaway.
    I love your photographs too. They look as if they have come out of a magazine....especially the last one !! haha.
    Please include me in your giveaway. I shall put it on my sidebar too. XXXX

  11. Hi Jeanne!

    Your trip seemed to fly by - well for me anyway! - I hope that you had a wonderful time catching up with friends and family.

    Thank you so much for your comment today....aren't those travel quotes wonderful, since I finished "Eat, Pray, Love" last week, I can't stop thinking about travelling somewhere new and exotic! Although France next week will do me just fine :)

    LOVE the bags, just my cup of tea,

    Welcome home!

    Simone :)

  12. What a kind gesture Jeanne! I just love the floral patterned bags and the apron too - I don't hope to win but if I did wouldn't it be lovely! I got some chocolate from a fellow-blogger last week - my first ever blog win - and I was so chuffed I wrote a post about it! Your bike is gorgeous - love the basket and bell - and I was in Hampton Court Palace back in 1977 and loved it. I spent that summer in London, just after my studies in nursing and midwifery. My best friend was doing her midwifery in Whipp's Cross Hospital and I went over to her, had a ball and survived on agency nursing all summer. What a time that was!
    all the best, Catherine.

  17. Love the bike and love Tika with the glasses!

    I am trying to find a local source for Nicky Pellegrino books. Once you posted about the book, "Recipe for Life", I looked on Amazon and Borders. I can get them, but it is difficult here in the states. Any idea or source you know of?
    Thank you in advance!
    Always, Teresa

  29. I love the colorful shopping bags. Glad you have returned safely. I just returned from Chicago and am trying to catch up on my blog reading. (at least my favorites, like yours.)

  30. Beautiful bags... I would love to shop with one...and the apron is fantastic too. First time I have visited your blog, via Brabourne Farm,lovely!

  31. hmmmmmm..... there is something kind of romantic about carrying your purchases in a non paper nor plastic regular grocery bag. Some of the grocery stores where i live no longer provide plastic or paper bags, it's a must that you provide reusable bags. I love that idea. I am also in love with my handwoven basket that I carry from market to market, just feels old school and right! Hope you are enjoying your summer Jeanne. Thank you for all our lovely comments on my blog!
