50th Post Giveaway ... and BONUS! London part 6

Summer reruns ....
While in London I am
my 50th post.

To say thank you to
I have assembled a few

not a ticket to London ....

The giveway goodies include
of roses.

Why roses?

I could say it represents
The City of Roses

or English roses ...

but really
it's because
EVERYBODY loves roses!

Imagine a beautifully
decorated box.
Covered in pink paper.
Everything padded with
Pink tissue paper.
Roses on
A great photo shoot
for the giveway ....

Didn't get done
before we left
for London.

I DID get a quick picture.
Of some of the stuff.
Great book
Comforts of Home
bone china egg cup
fun little dish with cutouts with yellow and pink roses
three dishes with aqua banding and sweet pink roses
a plate with rose trim
delicate glass blown flower basket,
handpainted mug ....
Oops ...
not the mug.
Pink princess
"borrowed" it
after the picture was taken.
How could I say no
when she just confessed
she feels drawn to flowers.
This is something
new for her.
To make it up to you I am adding some vintage floral ephemera from my private stash,
as well as a few goodies I hope to find at the markets and fleas here in London.


Just let me know of your visit
to ANY
or ALL
of my London posts.

You are entered.

Once for each post you comment on.

Post about the giveaway on
your blog
and let me know ...
each of your comments will count

Sorry for this
"summer rerun"
but hope you like the

Rerun is because
no new pics today.
We visited the National Gallery ...
no photography allowed so we didn't bother to take our camera.
Plans for tomorrow -
Spitafield's Market -
maybe find some goodies for the giveaway!
Then to the British Museum in the afternoon.
Hmmmm .... ROSEtta stone.
Probably not fit into carryon ....

Hugs and have a few laughs and some fun today!
