Diamond Jubilee Giveaway


The Diamond Jubilee weekend is not far away now, folks! I've still not actually worked out my plans for the weekend itself, but I do know that a friend and I are planning to wear a decade-appropriate outfit for each of the days leading up to the Bank Holiday, beginning with the 1950s, as the decade of Betty's coronation.

To get in the spirit of the Jubilee, I thought I'd run a wee giveaway, just for a bit of silly fun. Up for grabs are two lovely buttons (warning - they're not those itty bitty ones you get, these babies are a full 2 inches in diameter) and a special edition of the delightfully quaint 'Discover Britain' magazine.

Giveaway now closed.
To be in the draw to win, you simply need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post, telling me your plans for the Jubilee weekend. Anyone making nasty comments about our fine monarch will be disqualified. Entry is open to anyone around the world, even for people in those nasty republican countries. The deadline for entries is next Monday, 21 May at 11.59 pm, and I will draw a winner at random the next day.

I look forward to hearing your responses, and good luck!


  1. Evne though I'm way across the pond in the uSA, I'll be glued to whatever coverage we can get here, and making as many of my Gran's recipies as I can to celebrate!

    God Save the Queen.

    1. Congratulations, Su! You're the winner of my giveaway (and... er... my only entrant... are people not more enthusiastic about the Queen than that?). I've left a message on your blog, and will send off your prize as soon as you send me your address. Hurry quick, so that I can have it with you buy the day and you can wear your buttons as you bake your Gran's tasty recipes! x

  2. I'm thrilled! I emailed you my information! Thanks!

  3. Congratulations Su! I have that particular issue of Discover Britain, and it is quite delightful. Some beautiful photos.
