100th Post Giveaway!

Well it's taken me a long time, but I've finally made it to 100 posts - yay! And such lovely inspiring people I've had the privilige to meet along the way! Thank you to everyone who has left a comment on here, you are a constant encouragement to me. So to show my gratitude I am doing a little giveaway. Some of you like my driftwood stuff, others I know prefer the fabric pieces, so I wasn't sure what the prize should be. I have therefore decided to giveaway not one, not two but three items: hopefully that way everyone will be happy!
So here they are...

First up, one of my boats, created from Cornish driftwood. That piece of wood was that shape when I found it, just crying out to be transformed into a boat hull, don't you think?

And it's got some pinky coloured paint on it, so I have used co-ordinating fabric for the flags - a bit of a girlie boat, this one! I've put a brass hanger on the back so it can hang on the wall or propped up on a shelf or windowsill.

And prize number two....

Any regular readers will probably recognise that this wooden fish is actually a paintbrush handle (found on the beach). So I've turned it into a very simple keyring - might make an unusual stocking filler for somebody!

And finally, I found these beautiful teatowels by Greengate: much too pretty to dry the dishes with, so I've cut them up and made some new cinnamon robins. So the third part of the giveaway is this pair....

Such a nice morning outside I photographed them amongst the ivy - shame there's no holly in our garden, but ivy is the next best thing!

So that's the prizes (all for one lucky winner). All you have to do is leave a comment and I will put your name in a hat. Followers get an extra go (not too late to join up and follow me) and I would be most grateful if anyone wants to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter etc!
I will announce a winner next Monday evening (that's November 8)
Good luck everyone!
