A 10 Sale Giveaway!

I've been pondering for a while the idea of having a giveaway when I reached 10 sales in the FoldedFrippery Etsy shop.

I was at 8 sales last night when I asked the question on twitter, and it was answered almost immediately by a twitter friend buying two items from the shop - taking me up to 10 sales! And so, now I'm going to have a little giveaway!

You could win a pair of FoldedFrippery hair slides! The very ones below in fact:

To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is go to the shop and then come back and leave me a comment saying which item is your favourite. You can get another entry by 'liking' my Facebook page and then coming back and leaving another comment to say you've done so!

Make sure to leave a way for me to contact you in your comment!

The giveaway will be open until midnight on Sunday May 1st. I'll draw the winner on Monday May 2nd!

A Day Out at Kew

Today we took the Boyfriend's mum to Kew Gardens as a mother's day present. She's a really keen gardener, and plants are really her thing, so I hope she enjoyed herself.

I tried to be a bit handy with my camera, so I thought I'd post some of my favourite pictures here. Feel free to mock my awful photography skills!

First, some wildlife:

This is (apparently) a Golded Pheasant. It looked cool at any rate!

And here is a Peacock (and possibly a Peahen). It was being REALLY noisy!

And now onto (lots of) plants.

I think these are a type of Rhododendron - they were everywhere at Kew and I really like them. They look like big floaty skirts to me.

I have no idea what most of these are, I just really liked them:

And finally, here are some Bonsai trees. I really love Bonsai. I nearly bought a tiny one in the gift shop!

Oh, and one more - this is a statue of a heraldic falcon. They had loads of weird statues based on heralidic symbols, but this was the only one I managed to get a picture of.
