A thank you and a present

I had a big long post written for tonight about the mothers in my life and how awesome they are.

I wrote about the way they face challenges with strength and courage and the way they can make time to laugh, take me to breakfast, walk with me, eat dumplings and drink wine with me. I waxed lyrical about how much I adore these woman.

How blessed I feel to have not only a supportive mum, but wonderful aunties, a beautiful mother in law and a fabulous Grandma (who I happen to know reads this blog!).

The woman who make up my online life, that amazing supportive online world. Those woman who read my blog and comment on every post, follow me on Twitter, chat with me on Facebook and send me hilarious sweary things from Pinterest.

But you know what? All I want to do is say THANK YOU. It’s two weeks out from Mothers Day and the gifts are for you.

Each night this week there will be a little something to win from some of my favourite places.  And the winning will be simple, because I can do simple! All you have to do is like their Facebook page (and mine if you haven’t already), maybe sign up for their newsletter and come back and leave me a comment. I will then use the random generator thingy to pick a winner.

Tonight, we kick it off with this set of 3 vintage inspired baking tins (valued at $38.95) from the lovely girls at Emerald + Ella. They stock the most amazing range of homewares, beautiful things for your kitchen and even a range of gorgeous party supplies.


So, to win – simply drop by Emerald + Ella on Facebook. And for an extra entry, drop by their website and sign up for their newsletter (which is a super sweet one – well worth it!). Then come back and leave me a comment.

I will draw all the prizes (there will be one winner for each) next Sunday 6th May at 8pm – that will mean that hopefully each of the prizes will reach you in time for Mothers Day! And sorry, it’s only available for my Australian blog readers.

Check back again tomorrow for the next prize… and in the meantime – get commenting!
