Well folks its that time of year again.My blog has been out there in the virtual world for yet another year.Thats four years! Pretty impressive hey. 🙂 I guess Sunshine & celandines is mostly a slice of my life for me to look back on.But I have to admit it’s nice to know that occasionally somebody somewhere might visit my little corner of the bloggersphere.:)
What do I love about blogging? Well I do love telling everyone and their aunty about any new great places I discover. I feel compelled to actually! I enjoy taking photos too, though in a haphazard point and press type of way. So this blog is really my great indulgence.I’m still finding it to be lots of fun. I don’t think I can quite help….. being a blogger.:)
My Blogging Birthday Tradition is to host a wee giveaway every July to celebrate another happy 12 months of blogging.Yay! As I sit outside in the sunshine (oh so appropriate) sipping fruit tea, watching Slinky the cat prowl about my nasturtiums, I’m thinking,yep it feels great to be wishing myself a very happy blogging birthday.:)
To recieve a read copy of Jackie Copleton’s gripping & beautiful novel set in war torn Japan ‘A dictionary of Mutual Understanding ‘and a pretty blue ceramic seahorse tag from my friends Etsy Shop please comment below.
What do you like about being a blogger?
And if you are not a blogger ,could you ever be tempted ?
I will put all entries into a teacup and choose one at random on Monday 25th of July.ps I will send abroad so don’t be put off if you are not in the UK. 🙂
Hi folks its JULY which means my little blog is celebrating its 2nd Birthday! Two years ago I started Sunshine & Celandines after being inspired by some fabulous blogs out there and now I’m an avid blogger and blog reader. 🙂
With this in mind I thought I would do a little Giveaway to celebrate my blogs birthday. Its of course teacuptastic! Its a beautiful fine bone china cup & saucer. 🙂
I have actually started a bit of a collection of these cashmere tea cups by Maxwell &Williams because I cannot resist their gorgeous bright colouring and pretty design. I have chosen a sunshiney yellow one ( the colour of celandines 🙂 ) with a pink saucer to tempt you with.
All you need to do is tell me your favourite teacup tipple in the comments section below. I will enter everyones name in a teacup draw on the 30 July and let the winner know soon after. Good luck!!
I thought for my November #take12trips post I would show you some pictures from my surprise Birthday trip to Manchester. 🙂
My good friend Becky arranged everything. I have been thoroughly spoiled!
The Menu was of course one big clue. We went to see a musical at the Opera House. 🙂
Singin In The Rain has recently opened at the Opera House which is just round the corner from the restaurant. It was an amazing show , complete with lots of splashing of the audience. Take your brolly if your seated in the first few rows.
On Saturday we had a lovely continental breakfast then spent most of the day exploring the Christmas markets and drinking hot mugs of gluhwein. The markets are well worth a visit as they are very festive and brimming full of unusual foods and gifts.
Thanks to Becky for arranging such an amazing weekend. It was fantastic. :))
Wow can’t quite believe my little blog Sunshine and Celandines is one year old this month. 🙂 I started my blog as a celebration of all the things I love and am interested in. There are musings about vintage finds, wildlife walks, yummy food and favourite films. I write mostly for myself but yes I do get a happy buzz and a feeling of satisfaction when someone likes or comments on a post. Yippeee!
So to mark Sunshine and Celandines birthday I thought I would treat you to a little giveaway ( Hurrah! ). According to my stats my most widely read entry is What To Do With Your Vintage Teacups. so it seems appropiate that I should treat you to one of my own hand poured Teacup Candles. 🙂
To be in with a chance of winning the teacup candle pictured all you have to do is leave a comment by the 28th of July. I will then collect all the commenters names in a tea cup and draw out a name at random. 🙂
