Now we are one ...
... we should be a bit more organised, but unfortunately one year on in blogworld and I'm even more scatterbrained than usual. I could have sworn my blog birthday was today but, no, it was last week and I missed it! And for those of you who have been wondering what I look like (Samantha and Michele you may have to wait for photos to be emailed to you! ) this is for you - I think I was about one then this was taken. Who would have thought a year ago when I tentatively pressed that "publish" button and Ragged Roses was born that I would then go ahead and not commemorate it's first anniversary. I remember just how nervous I was and was literally shaking at the time. I'm so indebted to this blog and the friends that I have made this past year - Such special friends and memories.
A year recorded here for me and you - a year that has been enriched by your lovely, supportive comments and a year that has been made a lot rosier (no pun intended!) by being able to share it with so many lovely people.
A year on and I still never take any of your comments for granted and am still over the moon to find your comments and words of support - THANK YOU! This has been so much fun for me and, surprisingly, my family who are more or less use to me now walking around with a camera surgically attached to my body with one eye constantly on a photo opportunity. I have learnt to enjoy the everyday and find the extraordinary in the ordinary and have been so pleased to find that so many of you have felt the same too.
If you leave a comment on this post before next Sunday, your names will be entered for a giveway. Amongst the goodies are a vintage copy of "I Capture the Castle" (of course!) and a bag of chocolate Easter eggs to be eaten whilst reading.
One of my favourite spring time china brooches, in lieu of the bunch of flowers I would love to give you all.
Some pretty vintage buttons in spring colours mounted on a card for crafting. A vintage Easter postcard and some facsimile floral cigarette cards which could be used in collages.
Well there had to be roses somewhere, so here is a lovely little old rosey plate and pink ragged heart too.
I will be posting during the week but if you want to win the giveaway please leave a comment on this post! I've got to go and make an Egyptian costume now for Little Sister, as you do, so I best be off. Enjoy your Sunday and Happy Birthday!
