Give them away Bloom!

Awww, do I have to?! I've yet to make a Frilly Dilly bag that I haven't loved, and these are no exception. But give them away I must! Here is the deal for my giveaway: 1. The winner will choose one of the two bags I have made. 2. The remaining bag will be auctioned on eBay, with the proceeds to be donated to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire appeal. 3. The giveaway winner will be chosen at random, 4pm, Saturday 21st February. To enter, please leave a comment on this post, telling me where in the world you live and one thing that makes you happy! Choice #1 - Winter Frilly Dilly, made from reproduction fabrics, The Old Sturbridge Village Collection by Judie Rothermel.
Choice #2: Spring Frilly Dilly, lots of spots, stripes & checks, including a very cute Woodland Bloom print by Lila Tueller. The photos are not very good as it is a grey & miserable day here. I will replace them when the light is better. Something that makes me happy? Fresh flowers ... preferably in a clean house!

  3. Hi! My name is Ariane. I'm from Ontario, Canada. What makes me happy is taking a nice walk on a cool spring or fall day holding hands with my husband and watching my kids run, laugh and play. I love the Winter Frilly Dilly the most, but they are both beautiful.

  4. I have a big crush on your frilly bags! They are just the cutest, girliest thing ever. I love the colours of spring frilly dilly!

    What makes me happy? Freshly baked brownies and cappuccino coffee!

  5. Hi Bloom
    Gorgeous bags!! I live in the Hunter Valley New South Wales, love it, can't imagine not living here actually. Enjoy visiting other places, but always love coming home. One thing that makes me happy is playing with my children (we have 4). Kids take you for what you are and you can be totally silly with them. Good luck with your auction on ebay, I'll keep an eye out for it.

  6. Hi Bloom...I live in the best little town in the West....'Narromine' of course...what makes me happy....'my boys, that is the four of them'...."being happy"....can I have two...."life"....both bags are just beautufu...

  7. Hmmmm... Something that makes me happy... Being an Austrlain makes me happy! To see what those people have gone through (and some not been able to get through) down in Vic, then to see the way the firefighters risk their lives, then the public donating so much even in a time of their own need. It makes me very proud to say I'm Aussie! Also, seeing little Sam the koala come through the fires, along with so many other native animals, makes me cry tears of joy! For if humans could not survive the fires, then what animal stands chance!?
    Yes, I am truely proud and happy to be an Australian!

    ReplyDelete
  10. oh, what a wonderful job you've done on those bags!
    what makes me happy right now......
    * the love of my wonderful family, especially my precious son.
    * the fact that i am fortunate enough to have my one year old treasure of a nephew here with us on a weekly basis, i get to watch him grow.
    * all the heart warming stories of 'giving' for the bushfire victims.

    i live in rural queensland.

    thanks so much for the opportunity!

  12. Bloom, I adore both these bags but the spring one is probably a little more 'me'. I live with my lovely family by Sydney Harbour and count myself blessed to do so, but one thing that has made me extra happy this week has been coming home from hospital after a bout of shingles. Lots to smile about ....now!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi I live in Adelaide South Australia and what makes me happy is all the beautiful people I have found donating and giving to charities especially in light of the Victorian Bushfires. It makes me happy and restores all faith in the human race

  16. I live near Come-by-Chance, NSW, Australia which is full up to pussy's bow with water at the moment, if you can believe it! A tidy house makes me happy - looking around at my sewing, collections, random laundry waiting to be folded etc, I think it's been a long time since I've been truly happy...
    I enjoy your blog writing a lot Bloom - keep up the great work.

  37. G'day Bloom. As you can tell, I live in Australia - Melbourne to be precise. Right now, what makes me happy is that our fire problem is beginning to come under control. BUT, in the 'normal' world, watching my family of 7 all home and enjoying a tasty healthy meal together around our dinner table makes me very happy.
    Thanks for the give-away ......

  105. What lovely bags, you are so good at sewing (and gardening..)!

    I live at Minimay, Victoria and what makes me happy is fresh washing drying on the line. I have three pre-schoolers and it's so gorgeous seeing all their pink and blue clothes on the line, or their bedsheets flapping in the breeze. Yes its a bit of a cliche I guess, but as I walk off, I always have a glance back and a little inner smile.

    Have a great day,

What makes me happy is Sunday afternoons when I webcam with my 8 grandchildren, 4 of whom would LOVE a frilly dilly bag. None of them live within 1000 miles of me, but they can make me smile faster than anyone else!

  154. Okay here goes....my name is Jody and I live in Perth, Western Australia.
    My 8yr old daughter Stellas 'Pollyanna' attitude makes me happy - all the time. When my dearest friend, Reginas house burnt down during the VIC fires, Regina apologised for not sending Stellas b'day present in time, Stella thought for a moment and said "Oh Mummy tell Regina not to be silly, she has enough to worry about, I already have too many things". If we win I know who we will send it on to. If we don't thankyou for letting me share. x

  155. Thank you so much for the reminder! I really wanted to make a comment when I first read about your generous give away. The bags are so cheerful. It would be hard to chose one. Your blog has been on my google reader list for quite some time now. I enjoy every post! Spring colors make my day at the moment, even though (or maybe because)everything these days is white outside my window... Warm greetings, Una in Norway
