Anniversary Giveaway

Yes it is that time of the year again.

Now some of you stick with my Lazy days and Sundays at Willow Cottage blog and some stick with my Tea & Biscuits & a Good Book blog and some of you follow both.
What ever your preference it's all amazing and I am very grateful to all who take a bit of time out your busy lives to come and see what I have been up to. 

I have spent the last few weeks thinking about  what my give-a-ways should be this year and I think I have come up with the right choice. 

I was first introduced to Tea Pigs by Kate at Just Pootling when I won her give-a-way last year and I have been enjoying them ever since. And if I am making tea as part of my give-a-way I thought I needed to include a nice cup & saucer from which to drink it.  I love shortbread and quite often enjoy a piece or two whilst reading my latest book. As we all have differing tastes in what we like to read I decided to go for one of my favourite bookmarks rather than a book. You quite often see my sheep Book Tail in my posts.

So there we are Tea & Biscuits & a Good Book(mark)

my second give-a-way is themed around the lovely bumbles who visit our gardens.

Included in this give-a-way are

These gorgeous scissors and yes they do have little bumble bees on them.  I have at least three sets of these around including this set.  They are great for crafting, household and for snipping at things in the garden.

Gardening gloves which have my two favourite things from the garden Sunflowers and yes more bumbles.

A Bee Happy mug for that well deserved cuppa as reward for all your hard work and an absolute essential for after an afternoon weeding and dead heading 
and lastly 
 a little pamper kit from Burt's Bees to prevent chapped lips and hands.

So what do you have to do to enter my give-a-way?  Whether you  are a reader or a gardener or both just leave me a comment stating your preference or whether you would like a chance at both.
To give everyone a chance I will pick the winners on

Sunday 12th July

And remember it doesn't matter whether you are a regular commenting visitor or someone who pops by in passing if you would like to be included don't be shy  just leave a comment.

Happy Sunday one & all
