A Brand New Blog ......*...GIVEAWAY...* :0)

Hello Lovely people :0)

How are you all?
Hope this brand spanking, shiny new blog finds you all fine and dandy.

To start off my new blog, I'm having a giveaway.

Today is a always a sad day for me, it's the anniversary of my Dad's death.
It was quite a while ago now, but it doesn't ever go away does it? :(

Anyway, i thought if I can't be happy on this day, I'll make someone else happy:)
Good idea ..yes?

So I had a look at my book collection, and just as a little thankyou to all who read my blog (I don't think there are that many of you, so your chance of winning will be quite good LOL)
I thought I would give away a couple of the books that I no longer read/require.

They're both good books.

Here they are:

First one up is:

The second book is:

THRIFT  by Bridget Bodoano

Now Blogger isn't playing nicely, and won't let me upload any more photo's this evening, so I will have to put the rest of them on tomorrow night. :)

So, if your interested in winning one of these lovely books, just leave a comment on this blog saying which one you would like to win ...

It would be nice if you did a little link to this blog about the giveaway, but that is not at all essential to enter :0)

You CAN say both if you want to and you WILL be entered into both hats.
My hubby doesn't know it yet, but he will be drawing the winners from my fur hat on

20th January 2011.

So you have plenty of time to enter.

I'm just popping over to Bizzydays now to tell you all that I'm now over here :0)

Don't forget to leave me an email address if you don't have a blog so I can contact you if you win.

Good Luck Lovelies.
Take care.

I'll be back tomorrow with the rest of the pic's.

Love Donna x

  7. hellooooo dear Donna- love the new blog, and will put your giveaway link on my page.

    I'm sad to hear about your "dad day".
    No, it doesn't ever go away does it, but you do get more used to dealing with it as the time goes on.

    Please will you email me with dates you might be free and we'll meet up for a coffee? I really would like it if we could!

  8. Wow, all shiny and new Donna! I would like to win the Thrifty Book should my name be picked. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I will add your giveaway on my very next post! My heart goes out to you Donna about your Dad. My parents passed in 2007 and I still have an ache in my heart but if you just try to recall all of the wonderful memories it does become easier with time. I bet your Dad was very special.
