winner winner chicken dinner

sorry, but I just love that saying - it makes me giggle everytime I hear it :)

its time to draw the winners from pippi's happy birthday post !

I really wanted to have a giveaway for my followers to say thanks for following me and giving me support and encouragement - so I thought why not have a birthday giveaway as I got a heap of great pressies as well !

I purposely didn't mention the giveaway word in the post or the title as I really wanted it to be just for those of you who are regular visitors to my blog - so thanks for visiting and leaving comments ♥

It also meant that the chances of winning a book were pretty good too with just 12 comments - yay !

I know I said pippi would draw the names but it turns out she wasn't interested ! and I have issues adding mr random to my posts (I can't get it to work !) so I enlisted the help of mum and dad and did it the old fashioned way - with names on pieces of paper drawn out of a hat...

drumroll please ...

the winner of zakka style is ... rachaeldaisy

and the winner of modern minimal is ... dolores (who just happened to celebrate her birthday on Friday !)

congratulations rachael and dolores - I'm sure you'll really love your books - they're both fabulous !  I'll send you an email very soon to get your post details.

again thanks to all my very special followers for your kind comments and cheering me on :)


  1. Congratulations to Rachael and Dolores! I love the hat you pulled the names of out - very pretty! I'm guessing that there weren't enough biscuits involved to pique Pippi's interest...maybe she needs some lessons from Archie?!

  2. Hey that's me!!! I'm so excited, I'm doing the happy dance!!! Thank you so much!! Happy birthday to Delores!!

  3. Yay!! I won, I won! And Rachael won too! How very cool, and this tops off the birthday presents. I always had my eye on that book, there's a couple of quilts that have caught my eye and now I can actually look at the whole book. Thanks for the birthday wishes.


  4. Well done chicken dinner winners! Eek just got back home exhausted and your moo card holder much admired!

  5. So sorry I didn't discover your blog until after the deadline! I love the little bowl you used for the names! I'm in the African Bee with you, pleased to meet you
