Who won the giveaway?

Gosh, this has all been such a rush! I wanted to do so much more, but with the very unexpected and extremely short notice move to the cottage in France for the next few months, I just couldn't do it. But I have picked a winner for the altered egg box with all the little goodies inside. At least I had time for putting all the names in my heart shaped giveaway draw box :-). The winner of this

is ROBIN, from A Robin's Nest. Please email me your address asap so that I can get it shipped before we leave for France tomorrow night.

I also picked a handful of lovely people from the ones who comment so often and regularly ( Dorthe, Suzy, Alexandra, Julia, Rhonda and Lynn S ). I'll send you a few pages from that gorgeous Italian 1713. I am in such a mad rush to get everything done before tomorrow though, I don't have time to include anything else, I hope you'll understand.

I will try my very best to keep in touch whilst we are in France. Keep your fingers crossed that we will be able to finally get broadband at the cottage!

PS - Can I just say that I immensely dislike the new blogger format? Of course it could just be me being a dumbo, but I find writing a post so much more fiddly now, placing photos etc. Dont like it. Why can't they just leave things alone, waahh??? dont like the home page either, making the intros to new posts from bloggers on my reading lists so huge is just silly, there is way too much from each blog, I constantly have click on view more because you almost get the whole post right there, lol. Well, not quite, but you get my drift. Can I change that? Does anybody know? I much prefer the old compact list.  Ah well, I supose I'll get used to it in time. Still don't like it though. Humph. AND WHATS WITH ALL THE HUGE GAPS ON MY POST NOW??? I HATE IT!

Me again... :o)
To change back to the old layout go to your dashboard. In the upper right is the language option box. To the right of that is a wheel/flower icon. Click on the icon and a drop down will appear. That is where you can select to go back to the old format.
Hope that helps.
Always, Queenie

Dear Liz
I Hope you are not getting too dizzy!

Lovely that Robin won the Giveaway - she will be over the moon!
Oh sweetie that is the kindest thought wanting to share a bit of that antique book. I can't believe it! But don't worry yourself about any of that for now!
