Here is what the prize package contains:
The latest Donna Hay Kids Annual
As you know, if you read my blog, I love to spend time in the kitchen with my children and teach them to cook. You will not find me queuing up at the toy sales to purchase a plastic play kitchen and I've always resisted the temptation to buy them at garage sales. I don't even bother with making play dough - we much prefer to 'play' and learn in a real kitchen with real ingredients! For this reason, I love Donna Hay's kids annual! I'm taking a chance here, it is so popular and was sold out at many newsagents I visited but I managed to find an issue but if you already have purchased it and you win a second copy - pay it forward and bless one of your friends or if do not have young children maybe there is a mum in your neighbourhood or church you can give it to. It is packed with recipes and as usual, amazing and creative ideas for birthday parties and cakes. Just take a peek inside...
Look at this gorgeous 'pretty in pink' party for little girls!
But would you dare serve jellies in your fine china tea cups to five year olds?!!!
I can imagine myself sipping a cup of fragrant tea in those cups - and speaking of tea the second item is.....
A packet of 'Rainforest Magic' premium loose leaf tea. I purchased this at the Farmer's Markets. It is Daintree tea made and packaged in Australia. I chose this blend to reflect my home in the bush, we actually have pockets of rainforest on our property! The tea is chemical free (love that!) and infused with sweet orange and blended with lemongrass, hibiscus flowers and blackberry.
A candle with a botanical design of butterflies and birds!
After visiting the Farmer's markets I gave myself a little treat and spent some time in a gorgeous gift shop looking for suitable prizes for this giveaway. Okay, I spent a lot of time - this store is packed with French style home wares - lots of cream wrought iron furniture, linens, silk flowers, scented soaps and candles - I love candles and could not resist this one with its botanical print which is on the candle itself and not the protective wrapper. Will you actually want to light it?
A tiny decorative ceramic tile which expresses what matters most!
And then I spied this - the theme of my blog is all about family and 'Raising Beautiful Children in a Beautiful Place' and I thought this would be perfect for a giveaway from my blog. It comes on a little wire stand - I would choose to set it out near a display of family photographs. There were other designs too - expressing sentiments such as love, faith and friends. I admit it looked so lovely on my hand painted butler's tray I was tempted to keep it, the tile that is (the butler's tray is not part of the prize, that is one of my best ever garage sale finds and for display purposes only - sorry!) but there was only one 'family' tile left - no, this tile is for you if you are the winner and hopefully, the shop will be getting some more in stock soon - any excuse to visit!
And finally a sweet treat - a bar of Green and Black's organic milk chocolate. Their butterscotch flavour is my favourite, indeed this is my favourite chocolate and as the packaging states, it is 'extremely moreish', so only share it with your partner and hide it from the children!
So all you have to do to enter is..
1. Leave me a comment and let me know why you cherish your family.
2. Remind me that you are already following or sign up to follow my blog and you receive a second entry.
3. Post a link at your own blog to my giveaway and receive a third chance to win!
I will keep the giveaway open for one week - enter by next Thursday 5th July 1pm AEST time to be entered in the draw. The other twin eagerly awaits her chance to draw a name out of the hat which we will do following the close of the draw. I will do my best to announce the winner before the weekend but it may have to wait until the following week if I get busy or the internet drops out (both of these things are likely here!)
Looking forward to reading your comments and blessing someone soon! If the winner is from NZ I will not be able to include the tea due to quarantine restrictions. I know you will understand!
With Love and Joy,
