4 Cheers for 4 Years - A Giveaway.


Today is my 4 year blogiversary! 

When I began my little blog 4 years ago I had no idea what a big part of my life it would become. I simply started because I was just discovering blogs and thought it would be fun to be a participant. It has turned out to be so much more. 

I found I enjoy taking photos....
of all sorts of things. 

It keeps me on track with my projects... 

most of the time.

It's a place where I can let my imagination run wild 
with tall tales and fun adventures.

I enjoy sharing inspiration

and showing where I live


but the best thing about starting a blog 4 years ago of all is the wonderful people I've met. All around the world!! Online and in real life. Thank you to you all for making this a fun place to be!!! 

So it's 4 cheers for 4 years!!  
And the perfect time to have a Giveaway! 
The Swoon House mini quilt is finished and ready to send. 

If you would like to be in the draw then tell me in a comment how you follow eg Bloglovin, Feedly, email etc  and I'll put your name on a flower. That's right, no Mr Random for me, I'll be using the Daisy method of picking the winner. I'll write your name on a paper daisy and put it in a vase. An unsuspecting person will pick the winning daisy on Monday 21st April, 12midday, Blue Mountains, Australia, time.
This is a celebration of my blog so it's for wonderful Blue Mountain Daisy followers only, of course new followers are very welcome.  I'm happy to send the parcel to anywhere in the world. 

What a great 4 years - here's to many more!!!

The Giveaway is now closed - Thank you so much to all who entered and made my 4th blogiversary such a fun one!!
