Squiggly's FIRST ever giveaway

Hello All!  We are going to have our first ever giveaway!  I'd love to bless one of you with a little squiggly treat for Christmas.  All you need to do is leave me a comment about what you are grateful for today (or when you are reading this)!  I have a magic number in my head of which numbered comment will win - so please take part and enjoy the fun. It will be posted on Christmas Eve.  Maybe you have a friend who would like a little Christmas cheer too - they could stop by Squiggly's blog and take part too!  Here is the prize....

A Squiggly original - approximately size 4 - can be used as a dress or a top!

Today was my Grandma's 83rd birthday.  I feel so blessed to have her in my life and the children, Mister J and I could pop in for a cup of tea and bring her a handmade gift.

I must say I love this shot!  When Squiggly Rainbow first moved into The Vintage Shed I had some quirky pots planted - old teapots and the like.  A school mum at Master S's school also began her own pot plant business and has been having a wonderful success.  It is lovely to go outside the square.  I suppose we all bounce ideas off each other!

Our Christmas here is going to be very quiet and restful - by choice.  I am so looking forward to it.

I had a wonderful thrifting day yesterday.  Some wonderful collections for the stall did I collect.

The funniest thing happened when I was in the book section and found the Peter Rabbit book!  Another shopper who was out with her teenage children was also shopping with her rabbit!  I can't explain the fun it brought to my day.  She had 'Bunny' in his own little carry bag with a blanket.  Apparently Bunny travels with the family often.  It really was such a sweet thing!

I am about to organise some proper business cards - so when I have a wonderful experience with others I can share this blog with them!

Hope you share it with someone for the giveaway. xo


  1. Happy birthday to your Grandma!
    I am grateful for so many things right now but the first thing that comes to mind is my farmerboy sitting next to me doing the bookwork. I am Mrs crappola at all things numbers and I am so grateful that his head can work it all out and keep us in business.
    Oh and I think the business cards is a brilliant idea and I might have to do the same.

  2. I am very grateful for my family. They stick by me through thick and thin and the love isso strong. i look at them and thank god I got so lucky.

  3. What a beautiful top.

    I am grateful to be alive, as I had cancer 2 years ago at the age of 31. I have had 2 years of clean scans (they can't say I am in remission until 5 years out). And, this July (an early X-mas gift), we were blessed with our daughter, Savannah Rose. We were told we couldn't have kids from the treatment, but she is a miracle and the best Christmas gift.

  5. Hmmm... I am definitely grateful for happy and healthy children and a loving husband. As cliche as that sounds, I am grateful for them!

    I hope the number in your head isn't 999... and probably isn't going to be 1 either. :( Oh well. Gorgeous dress. My two girls would get good use out of it. Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  8. Hey Rachel,
    Today i am grateful for two things. Firstly i am grateful for my dad letting me borrow his computer while he is away so i have been able to 'catch up' on your blog, lol.
    Most importantly though, today i am grateful for the sunshine. My kids played outside most of the day today because of the beautiful sunshine, i got to mow my lawns and Dan got to spend some time building the cubby my kids are getting for Christmas. It was a great (and productive) day.

  10. Being a true and honest person is what makes me happy,not people pleasing but just being grateful for the people who have been honest in showing there true colours in my life.
