My 40th Birthday giveaway - ta da!

Well blog friends here's the first giveaway from The Pea Pod and it's a rather special one...to celebrate my 40th birthday on 23rd October! Yippee!

I've been thinking about my giveaway for quite a while but reading that http://floraandpurl.blogspot.com had posted her giveaway I thought it was time to pull my finger out.

Because it's my 40th I thought it might be fun to give away 40 little gifts to the lucky winner. Here are a few that I've wrapped, with quite a few more to go.

The winner will receive 40 items, some quirky, some vintage and some made by myself :)




So if you like surprises and you would like to be the winner of 40 little gifts then all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post and become a follower of The Pea Pod - simple.

All names will be put into a hat and the winner will be pulled out by my dad, Norman, on my birthday, 23rd October. So if you are really keen, start sending Norm pick me vibes!

  1. Happy 40th!! (for the 23rd!!) I love the idea of using old maps to wrap gifts.

    I have finally (and am so ashamed it is SO late) sent off my cheque to you for the pegs.

    Along with other letters that should have been posted ages ago!

    Oh well, must return to a very panting dog, could it be puppies tonight.......

  12. Hiya - just discovered you, also via junkaholic.

    I love the amazing details on the pieces you've made and shown on here, and after browsing your blog and seeing your paintings, I can see why they're so fab!

    Love how you've done up the front of your house - mine is still at the "estate agents' pic" before stage - mind you, the ex still owns half of it, so I can't make it too gorgeous yet ;)

    Sympathies, and encouragement, with the fireplaces - ugh, crows' nests... I really like the lamp on your mantelpiece. Missed one like it in a charity shop, when I was teetering on a pale scheme.

  13. It's giveaway time all round! I said to myself that once I had gained 100 followers on my blog I would enter all the names into a hat and pick out a winner to receive my first ever giveaway, and tonight I discover that I have 101! So Lizzie, you will be automatically entered into my giveaway, can I please be entered into yours? I must say you are being very generous indeed, and to have them all wrapped up too, what an exciting prospect for the winner!
    My very best wishes for the 23rd! Christine x

    I can now see that you've been creating and leaving the world of blog to do it's own thing for a while. Good to see you back. Put some piccy's of your map work on your blog for all to see. x
