New Year's Giveaway!

Here in Australia we are lucky to have our beloved Frankie magazine, bi-monthly bringer of loveliness, gorgeous photos, nice things and crafty ideas.




To celebrate Christmas and start looking ahead to the new year, I am offering a special prize of the new Frankie 2009 calendar. It has pretty pictures from artists like Beci Orpin, Kat Macleod, Rob Ryan, Lilly Piri and Catherine Campbell, it is ring-bound, a lovely large size for you to write on, and printed on beautiful art paper.

And that's not all! I am also including a copy of Frankie's lovely Afternoon Tea cookbook. This is one of my most favourite ever cookbooks as it combines baking and vintage styling!

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post (or email me if you're shy) by Christmas Day, and if you are randomly selected I'll post your calendar and cookbook in time for the new year. Here are some pretty wallpapers from Frankie too, you can download them here. xx

Lovely giveaway. Afternoon tea is underrated - especially when 30 weeks pregnant! Merry Christmas. Kath.

This cookbook sounds yummo and i'd love to read frankie - have heard so many good things!

I heart Frankie....and love the illustrations in the calender .... however the photo that resonates for me is the one of the couple leaping in front of the valiant with the dog! Tugs at the heart strings... having owned two Valiant's now...I really pine for owning one again!
