As some of you may have noticed, we are having ‘a bit of a do’ in the UK on Friday. Yes, it’s the ROYAL WEDDING!!
I am really looking forward to Will and Kate’s forthcoming nuptials, and I want to share this with you all, especially my international followers, as I don’t want you to feel left out of all the excitement. So I thought that we should celebrate in style with a GIVEAWAY!
Look what I spent Easter Monday doing!
A couple of posts ago I showed you Sinitta, and suggested then that I may have another idea for this little crochet doll pattern (from Super-Cute Crochet by Nicki Trench).
So here is beautiful Kate, in all her bridal finery, complete with silk, empire-line wedding dress, antique lace train and a bouquet of silk roses. Somebody gave me those tiny pieces of lace when I was a child and I have been hanging on to them ever since, I just knew they would come in handy one day!
And I wonder if I have got Kate’s dress right …?
And here is HRH Prince William of Wales. Will is in a relaxed mood here, he has taken off his hat (couldn’t work out how to make that) and his tie (forgot to make him one) and his hair is a bit tousled! But doesn’t he look happy to be marrying the lovely Kate?
Kate and Wills met at St Andrews University, where my own DH went. It is a beautiful, historic town, with a castle and a beach. We still like to go for days out there at least once a year.
Anyway back to the GIVEAWAY. Not only is the winner going to get their own scaled down, crocheted versions of The Happy Couple, but also this beautiful Emma Bridgewater Royal Wedding plate, worth £29.95!!
We have been selling the Royal Wedding china in the shop and all I have left are a couple of plates. I think this will be very collectable in the years to come, and I bet my international followers would just love to get their hands on it!
And I will even throw in the red, white and blue mini bunting too!
“Kiss her, kiss her!” shout the crowds as Will and Kate gaze in to each other’s eyes on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. *sigh*. I don’t know if I can even wait till Friday!!
So what do you have to do to win this amazing Royal Wedding package?
1. leave me a comment about the Royal Wedding. How do you feel about it? Are you excited, bored, angry, uncontrollable? What do you think of Kate? Or Will? Or the whole Royal family? Be as controversial as you like. I, for one (despite being largely left-wing) absolutely love the Queen and Prince Phillip! And as you can tell, I have fallen for these two love birds. But don’t let that stop you from telling me exactly what you think, I promise I won’t vetoe any republicans!
2. Become a follower and leave a separate comment telling me so, or if you are already a follower, leave me a comment to tell me that.
3. Blog about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with a link to your blog.
So 3 chances to win, but there will only be one winner. And international entries are welcome, of course, as I want you all to share in our British Big Day. Giveaway ends Sunday night, 1st May 2011. I will announce the winner on Monday, the 2nd.
Good luck everyone! And enjoy Friday!
Hurray for Will and Kate!!
