Just a quick post today, as I have a manic weekend ahead of me ... I've got a new Vintage Fair tomorrow, the house looks like a saleroom, with stuff spilling out of every room ... and Jacob's coming home today from his travels! As I use his room for my Vintage Fair stuff, you can imagine the chaos ... am trying to make the house look welcoming for his homecoming ... but failing dismally!

Anyway, although I said I would close the Giveaway tomorrow, I am doing it a day early in case I forget ... there are 42 entrants, and I have used a Random Number Selector ... 

Thought I had saved the image to my pictures, but when I went to put the picture on to show you which number was picked the box was blank! Sorry ... am afraid I am a complete technophobe, and should have photographed my computer screen! The number was 19 and after counting through my list (not counting  those who left a comment but didn't want to enter) the winner is:                                                                          lovely Thea from Hearts and Bluebells

Congratulations to you Thea, and please can you email me with your details and your book will be winging it's way onto you!

So sorry for the garbled post today, and hope you will understand ... but I promise I will do a post soon showing you my before and afters on the cupboards I'm taking to the Fair tomorrow ... Annie Sloan is my new BF! 

Have a lovely weekend,

Love, Claire xxx

PS: A big welcome to all my lovely new followers!
