The Importance of Random Numbers...

Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter the first HenHouse giveaway and also to leave comments about your thrifty finds.  I've loved reading them and I hope you all have too.  I apologise that I haven't got round to getting back to everyone individually on their comments but not having people's emails makes it so difficult.  I have, though, visited the blogs of those of you who left comments (and have blogs) and I've made some great new additions to my "followed blogs" list.  It's getting out of control!  There aren't enough hours in the day...

Anyway, you're not really interested in all that waffle, are you?  So, I found a random number thingy by typing (oddly enough) "random number generator" into Google and that came out with the number 


So, if I am correct, the maker of comment 24 was Vintage, Pretty and Shabby , so I am delighted to pass my little goodies onto you.  Please get in touch with your proper name (unless you want "Vintage, Pretty and Shabby" on the parcel but the postie might look at you a tad strangely) and postal address and I'll get the things off to you as soon as I can.  I hope you like them and/or find them useful.  I do love your blog, in fact I'm a bit shocked that my humble offerings are going to someone with such marvellous taste and style (gulp) and for any of you out there who haven't read the VPS blog yet, what are you waiting for...!  

I quite like this giveaway malarkey so I'll have another one nearer Christmas.  In the meantime, I have my swap to work on, the theme being "a cosy night in" so I'll "see" you all soon...
