I am more than happy that my last blog post " Heritage " received an overwhelming response ! My beloved grandma's vintage fabrics were featured on three of the loveliest parties I had linked to Vintage Inspiration Friday , Home Sweet Home and Potpourri Friday .
All this attention makes my timeless grandma's gift even more special !
I called her and let her know the appreciation of her work and generosity ...and her response was : "What are you talking about...What ..blog ..." And it's the way our phone conversations have been going on for quite some time ; I am saying something , she's talking about whatever she has to say , I am only listening , laughing ,wowing and oohing most of the time , ...but at the end she (wisely) says "O , dear ! It is simply great , but don't make a big fuss over (it)..."
There you go .
In fact , I have always liked such an attitude : always give your best, but don't take yourself seriously, keep it simple and be appreciative .
So I have been thinking the last couple of days how to really say thank you to all of you out there , my dear readers , for your support, your encouraging words , your hugs , your greetings ...
From my loyal readers and top commenters, Susan T , Anita, Irina, Shirley, Elizabeth , Zuzu ( my very first follower) ,Michelle, Dayle,Ricki Jill Treleaven and recently Suzanne, to single-time visitors , everyone that visits the blog makes me content ,blessed and humble .You inspire me ! You nurture the growth of my blog ! (You make me glance at my BlackBerry every ten minutes :) You ROCK !
and I am filled with gratitude !
When the lovely blog community offers a valuable response , isn't it the best way to thank it having a GIVEAWAY ( I prefer saying " it's a gift ")
Yes! It's the very first time I have ever done one , but I know it's the best time .
The winner of my giveaway will receive:
four linen napkins, that I've just made from my grandma hand-weaved fabrics,

She is an interior and FABRIC designer and the book is filled with lots of ideas and wonderful images.( I am keeping my copy ; I've just bought a new one from my favorite book shop :)
I am trying to keep it simple , that's why if you like my gift and want to take a part in the giveaway simply leave a comment ! (actually , the best and most interesting comment wins :)
That's it .
