My first giveaway!!!

Finally, here it is. The first ever Deravelled giveaway!

Since I started blogging last summer, I have met so many wonderful people in blogland. So, as a little thank you to all of you for being so friendly and inspirational and wonderful, I would like to offer you my first giveaway.

I wonder what's inside?

Lucky winner number one will win the following: a shabby chic botanic style stiff card box (the perfect size for photographs); a shabby French chic inspired hanging heart with ivory satin ribbon and black reclaimed button (made by me); a still wrapped bar of Culpeper Elizabethan triple milled hand soap (the most delicious vintage fragrance ever!) which is no longer made, so a rare find indeed and taken from my personal stash (aren't I kind!):

And finally, you will also received a handmade card, perfect for Valentine's Day, featuring two entwined hearts joined by a silver gemstone heart. It also features a real metal "zipper" charm, with the word "Love" embossed onto it.

This card, made by me, come complete with a matching pink envelope.

Lucky winner number two will win the following:

You will win a handmade Valentine's card, but this time with the word "Together" embossed on the zipper charm.

You will also receive a set of three handmade shabby chic note cards with matching envelopes, featuring fabric-look floral papers and skeleton leaves:

And finally, you will win a shabby French chic inspired hanging heart with ruby red grosgrain ribbon and ivory reclaimed flower button (made by me):

So, if you'd like to win one of the above two prizes, simply leave a comment below (and state your preferred prize) before I draw the two winners next Sunday evening, for your chance to win. :)

Thanks again for making my time in blogland a happy one.

Thanks for the chance to win some cool giveaways. I am sure I won't win, but I think, if I do win, I would prefer #1 because that soap sounds gorgeous!!
Thanks, and keep up the good work!

I found you while reading Country Cottage Chic. I have added you to my blog roll :) And, if you want to send a prize across the big pond, I would love to have #1. I love the heart! And combine it with the soap. Sigh.... It sounds heavenly. I am fascinated with people and their lives. I especially like to see what crafts and homemade things y'all make over there.

Hollypop's said...

Hi, thanks for stopping by and your kind comment.
It's not always a dream, but it is great most of the time I have to say.
Take care.

Hello Gemma I have just discovered your blog! You have made some lovely things. If I was lucky enough to win your giveaway I would choose the first option.

Julie said...

Just found your blog - it's lovely. Am just starting knitting, and funnily enough, was thinking that I might try to sew myself a new bag. Loved yours, it was beautiful.

Would love to enter your giveaway, and would be thrilled to win either.

Thank you for visiting my blog and inviting me to leave a comment.
I'm delighted that you've called me "talented" as I'm new to crafting so I'm really chuffed at the compliment and have been beaming whilst on the school run this afternoon!
I had seen your lovely giveaway but as I'm a new reader I didn't want to seem cheeky and just comment on the giveaway .... but if I'm lucky I've a penchant for the heart and notecards of giveaway #2 :-)
Great blog,

gingerwine said...

Ooo can I be entered? Very nice blog too!
