And The Winner Is...

First I would like to thank everyone who participated in my first giveaway. I would have liked every single one of you to win but that was not possible I'm afraid. So a big thanks to you all and now on with the draw.

OK Daughter No. 3, who's it to be? Oh and thank you very much to my big girls for spending an age writing up 251 numbers and cutting them all up this morning. Much appreciated I can tell you!

Oh look, who is it???

Number 231!!! OK that means nothing to any of you I know, so let me stop being mean and tell you who it is. Heart in the Country is the grand winner!!!!! This lucky lady lives in the UK and writes about her life in the country. She speaks of preserving, gardening, animals and cooking to name a few. Pop on over and offer congrats to her if you like. I'm sure she would love to hear from you.
.
Now, because of the amount of votes we had, I decided to add one more prize to the person who was kind enough to give me a whole blog page advertising my giveaway, complete with photos as well. I was quite bowled over with her generosity, although I shouldn't have been as she really is the most kind and thoughtful person. That sweet winner is Manka from Hungary, who writes a lovely blog called Little Rose Cottage. I will be making up a new parcel full of NZ surprises just for you.
.
If you lovely ladies would be kind enough to send me your address's, I will get your parcels off to you this week. Well done and a happy weekend to you all!
