birthday giveaway


Its my birthday today. From the pictures below of others born in the same year, can you guess how old I am?


If you'll just allow me to indulge in a bit of maternal pride - the look on the boys' faces as they handed over their cards and gifts! They were so proud. It bought tears to my eyes. Lovely, lovely boys.

In true blogging tradition, I'm having a giveaway. Here's the deal. Visit my Etsy or Made It stores by 5.00pm Friday, and leave a comment on this post as to your favourite item. I'll draw a name at random and the winner will receive a $30.00 voucher to spend as they please in my store.

Hello. It's a toss up between the green/turquoise scarflette and the passionfruit scarf. I love them both. Adrienne

Jelly Wares said...

HAPPY B'DAY... Ohhh, the age is a tricky one... Early thirties???
I love the hair clips that you've been doing of late, especially the vintage button ones..

Jodie :)

Christie said...

Happy Birthday. I am cetain that Dani is in her thirties, but god knows her face gives NOTHING away!

I love the scarflette in etsy, the one that comes in diferent colours :-)

Kirsty said...

Happy happy Birthday - Mrs G is too good.

CurlyPops said...

Oooooh Happy Birthday Stacey!
I'm not entering the giveaway as you most kindly sent me some absolutely beautiful creations already (and I love eveything in the shop so I can't choose)!
I hope you have a wonderful day, I'm guessing that with Danni and Kirsty Allsop, then it's mid 30's ???

Cathe said...

I would build my entire winter wardrobe around the very colorful 72" Pure Hand Dyed Wool Scarf. So, I’m gonna need that voucher, thanks.

: )

Have a wonderful birthday week!

Cass said...

Happy Birthday Stacey. I love all your kids beanies with the detachable flowers, although I love that knotted top one as well. You are the same age as my brother, going by Kirstie's wikipedia entry - 1971

M said...

Happy Birthday! I have no idea how old those people are, I could Google but that's cheating. I'd just say that you are younger than me!

the butterfly collector said...

happy birthday! hope you have a great one and what a beautiful painting! love the dress, thanks for sharing! shae xo

Cathy said...

As my littlest son always says when asked how old his mother is 'My mum is 21!!!!' So that's how old I think you are.

By the way, my fave in your shop is the scarfette!!

Hope you have a fantastic birthday whatever age you are!

KikiMiss said...

Hey Snoop Dogg (is it double g??)...happy birthday to you - hope you're off somewhere exciting right now enjoying this wonderful day. I love the Pure Hand Dyed Wool Scarf. 180cm or 72 inches long (in spring colourway) from your Etsy store, I've been looking at it for a while now. We have had 26/27deg temps up here so I won't need it now BUT Winter '09 would be a good year for it don't ya think ;-)

Happy, happy, joy, joy!!

The Toy Society said...

Happy birthday young lady!

Kylie said...

Happy Birthday - I wont say how young you are! But did work out that you would have been born on the 2nd September 1971!

I love the scarflet (http://www.madeit.com.au/proddetail.asp?ID=6752) - and really think that it would work a treat in my wardrobe - and yes I know I can knit, but seem to knit for everyone else and never myself!

Selina said...

Happy Birthday!
Far and away, my favourite thing is the cupcake beanie!!!

Louise said...

Oooh Happy Birthday you young thing!! Well, way younger than me anyway. I hope you are doing something really fun and I just love your comment about your boys - gorgeous things!

I am going to be completely different and say the denim and red tea cosy - love it heaps!!

Hello (again). I forgot to mention which item I preferred more. It's the green/turquoise scarflette. How very Librian of me! Hope you have a very Happy Birthday. I've got a feeling you were born in 1969? Adrienne

Bec said...

Happy Birthday!!! I'm guessing 36????

My fav items are your vintage button hair clips, but you already know that of course :) I also love the little crochet flower clips too. Mind you, if I wasn't living in warm sunny Qld then I would definitely be availing myself of one of your gorgeous beanies. And to make things even more confusing, if I was buying for a little girl I think I would have to go for one of the open knit hats, as they are just beautiful (but I don't think I could get away with wearing one myself...)

All the best, Bec X

amy.gunson said...

happy birthday! I love your shops. I'm quite fond of these vintage button hairclips: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13952231 or I really like this hat: http://www.madeit.com.au/proddetail.asp?ID=3252

It's all quite nice. I had a hard time deciding. I've added bookmark!

Stomper Girl said...

Happy Birthday Stacey!! There ARE NO NUMBERS AFTER 29. I love getting gifts from proud boysies too.

Also it is very hard to nominate just one fave item as your shop is stacked full of beautiful stuff and I know from experience how lovely it is in real life! But the Hydrangea scarf made me salivate so I'd pick that!

Shellbells said...

happy birthday...am almost wishing it was the beginning of winter when I saw the Super Soft Wool Scarflette / Neck Warmer with Mother of Pearl Button creation of yours!!! Lovely.

Happy Birthday!!!

My favourite is the cupcake beanie, LOVE it!

Hoppo Bumpo said...

Happy belated birthday! There is a running joke in our house that everyone is always turning 3 (no prizes for guessing that its come from the 3 year old ... at least we can move on to a new number next year!)

Your green and turquoise scarflette is my favourite. It looks beautifully cosy.

sewfunky said...

Happy Birthday... :)

I would guess at early thirties.

I just LOVe your button hair clips...

Deidre said...

Congratulations on your 37th birthday. I hope you have a lovely celebration.

I love the Pure Wool Hat with Detachable Flower, as it's lovely and crisp and goes with everything.

Well, Happy Birthday! Just in time for spring :)

I'm loving your tea cozies with the embroidered doilies - so cute!

Black Eyed Susie said...

Happy Birthday Stacey. I love the toddler beanie in pinks and yellow because it would be gorgeous on my little girl.

Michelle said...

happy birthday...love the pink wool scarflett on your etsy shop.
just found you though auntycookie comments(what a great comment)i thought much the same.its great to find another australian blogger...

Suse said...

All I know is that you're a spring chicken, as Danni is Kylie's little sister and Kylie is younger than me. And I'm so old that I have no idea who the other people even are.

The tea cosy with the doily on green floral fabric is TO DIE FOR.

Happy birthday!

Just Susan said...

I love all your stuff but I especially love "Pure Wool Handknitted Beanie / Hat with Detachable Flower for Baby, Toddler or Child". I try to keep my kids in homemade winter gear snd my daughter would love it.
Happy Birthday! Susan

Happy Bday! I love this one in pink for my little girl: Pure Hand Dyed Wool Beanie. Toddler, Child and Adult Sizes. Thanks!

Violet & Rose said...

23. Definitely 23. Although, having had the pleasure of meeting you, those wrinkles could mean 24.

I would actually happily settle for 30 myself.

Happy Birthday, although I think I've missed it. Hope it was a lovely day!
