500 posts and a rather nice giveaway


Giveaway is now closed - we have a winner!

Wowee, this is my 500th post!  Go me!  To celebrate such an auspicious occasion, I thought it best to have a giveaway.  Can you believe I have never done one before? About time I say.

Recently I had the pleasure of inviting some special people over to eat some toast, drink some tea and take some snaps.  You can read their gorgeous words and see their beautiful pics here and here. On her visit, Luisa gave me a sweet gift of the latest issue of Kinfolk magazine, and I'd like to offer it to you.  To celebrate 500 posts and say thank you for dropping in over the years. 

So without further ado, let's get this giveaway started.  Nothing tricky, just leave a comment and I'll draw the winner on Friday 27 April.  Go to it!

  55. Hi Michelle, I can't recall how I first stumbled upon your blog but I do remember the feeling I got when I did....and even now as I click on my link to it I get a sense of anticipation and wonder what is going on this week? Your blog has opened my eyes to the beauty and bounty of Tasmania, and made me realise that there is a wonderful life to live regardless of where you live, it's about recognising the beauty around you and making the most of what you have. I have loved reading about your adventures in jam making, something I also tried for the first time this year, and about the trials & tribulations and courage required to move everything to the other end of the country....and seeing how that decision has been so fruitful has been for your business, and most importantly for your family and the opportunities you have to nurture them in such an idyllic place. I look forward to reading more about your adventures and wish you the best of luck. Warm regards, Amanda, South Australia
    p.s. I have just read a comment above and realised that I too came to your blog via beautiful Mabel in Country Style.
