2nd Blog Anniversary Giveaway!

Ooh..I'm just loving these pretty colours!
~ And how are you today?~
It's very chilly here but at last the sun is shining 
and I'm thinking that our blog anniversary celebration is a little overdue....
Time is a strange thing isn't it?
It seems only a very short time ago that I first entered Blogland, 
having no understanding of this world at all (and sometimes I do even 
wonder how I actually arrived here...it remains quite mysterious!)
On the other hand, when I read through some of my posts over the last two years they do seem a lifetime ago...
Yes, time is a funny old thing indeed!
~ ♥ ~
 The MJT 2nd Blog Anniversary 
Giveaway!
First, before we launch our Celebration Giveaway....
I want to say a huge thank you to all the lovely friends who take the time 
to call by our little tearoom and offer such generous words of encouragement..
You make this such a lovely place to spend my time!
There will be 3 prizes included in this draw...
The first prize is a copy of Cath Kidston's
patch!
This is a great read with lots of lovely inspiring projects...
definitely on my 'to do' list is the
'Hounds Bag' which I just have to make at some point!
All the materials needed to complete either a cushion or bag project are also included with the book.
~ ♥ ~
The 2 runners up will receive one of the following designs from
(You may remember my post about them here)
Made to last using beautiful highest quality linen
All you have to do is...
add your name in the pop up comment box
(click on the number of comments below and the box will open)
As this is a 
Blog Anniversary Celebration 
the only condition is that you are a follower of the 
Mary Jane's TEAROOM Blog
(new followers will of course be welcome too!)
Prizes posted to wherever in the world you may be...
That's it people...easy!

~ ♥ ~
The winners will be announced on...
10th February 2012
and decided using the 
Random Number Generator
~ ♥ ~
Wishing you a great week ahead
and thank you so much for calling by!

Good Luck Everyone!

I have already posted here to enter the comp. but I just wanted to share a story and to let you to know this morning you brought a smile to my face :-). Its miserable, cold, damp, dark and just so depressing here right now, oh for some sun !, on top of which I had a terrible year last year, so much sadness- and then last night I read "The Knitting Circle" by Ann Hood, the most amazing book I have read in a long while, lots of tears, but also lots of insight and recognition why we knit, craft, sew ...left me very emotional - and then I logged onto facebook today and the first thing i saw was your beautiful, calm, pastle colours and such happiness,serene, it so made me smile - and it made me realise something so very important- we really do have so many 'faceless friends' because we knit, sew, craft and they are all good people, how can you not be a good person if you pour so much love into you art - so to all my faceless friends today - hi !! have a great great day :-) because I am so smiling - and I am finally going to finish the knitting project I was doing with my mum when she died, and I feel so happy about that, thank you. :-))
