100 Followers Giveaway!! ( & a crown makeover!)


Hello!
Well Sorry I've been Gone so long but with the Snow days that fell upon us, between entertaining a 5 yr old and getting the house back in order after Christmas, there has been little time for finishing up my projects!
So now my lil man is back in school I can move forward with things..starting with the 100 Followers Giveaway!!
Thankyou to all of who have followed my ramblings over the last 6 months! It means so much that you take the time to comment and wish me well and to have got to know so many wonderful peeps in such a short space of time. I hope our friendship grows and thrives. x
So I have opened this giveaway to the members of my facebook group and you all here in Blog land!! There are currently just over 300 members there and on the halfway giveaway I had well over 250 entries so I have decided to give away the following prizes...

1st name Drawn
some surprise vintage and crafty goodies!

2nd name Drawn
A set of 4 seasons Vintage style blocks
OR
1 Seamstress Necklace in the crystal colour of their choice.

Next 5 Names drawn
A pair of Handmade Crystal earrings in the colour of their choice

Of course there will be more than one way to enter so you can have multiple entries!!
SO this is how it works.....
1 entry = reply to Facebook group OR Comment on this post
1 entry = posting a link to this blog on your Facebook wall OR Posting a link to your blog
1 entry = becoming a follower of my blog or join my Facebook group- link in side bar

I can see who has replied or commented on Fb and here but if you have posted a link or followed me then please let me know by e-mail annmarie_vaughan@yahoo.co.uk and i will add your extra entries in the hat!
If you are already a follower then let me know when you leave a comment and I will automatically put an extra entry in for you xxxx
P.S This giveaway is open to readers overseas too!!
GOOD LUCK!!

SO heres the Makeover! I bought this erm rather yellow gold Crown tree topper in the January sales and it wasnt really to my taste or matched any of my tree decorations so it needed a new look!
( please excuse the poor quality of pics)
