Lisa Swifka aka "A Whimsical Bohemian" is holding this blog event and as my blog is one year old this month I thought I'd celebrate by giving it a go.
As you can see the theme of this year's event is the Magic Carpet and, as I didn't have time to make a carpet, I wondered what on earth I could offer as my
giveaway that would fit in. Of course my favourite sort of carpet is in the garden and thanks to a bit of 'googling' I found these three flower varieties named Magic Carpet (ok one is Persian Carpet!) . So I would like to give someone the opportunity to have a beautiful growing magic carpet in their garden, or in a container or window box, in a few months time.
I've also crocheted these little flowers in magic carpet colours - I found the instructions here on Nichole Heady's blog. They look really pretty crocheted in embroidery cotton and have a lovely sheen that just reminds me of a silky carpet my sister bought when she lived in Turkey - surely the home of the magic carpet!
So if you would like the chance of winning the seeds and crocheted flowers (with their box and some buttons for their centres) all you need do is leave a comment here on my blog. Please include a way for me to contact you if you are the lucky winner. Lisa will be listing all the ticket holders on her blog. Click on the Magic Carpet ticket on my side bar to be flown there in the blink of an eye! The event ends on 15th February, when I will pick a winner using the Random Number Generator. Everyone will be announcing their winners on that day. Last year there were 911 ticket holding bloggers participating in 28 different countries so there will be plenty to look at! I can't wait to see what everyone has done!
1st February edit - I'm absolutely astounded by the number of comments I've received and to celebrate crashing the 200 barrier I'm going to carry on crocheting flowers so I can give more away. Look out for another post later today for some extra details.
