  1. Hi Mel, many thanks for entering my giveaway. You are listed as a 'no reply comment blogger' so you would need to change your blog settings so that folks can reply to your comments. Best of luck with the giveaway. Judith xo

  4. Hi Mel....
    Your blog looks great. I like the photos of the jam making - I could almost smell how yummy it was! I made hampers for family Christmas presents last year, and made vanilla flavoured sugar (so so simple!) in lovely jars, and also flavoured oils which seemed to be popular.

    I am new to blogging too, so hope you don't mind that I have decided to follow you. It's addictive though, so beware the time that seems to be spent blogging, and reading other people's blogs!

  5. Hi Second Chance Tan!
    Congrats on being my second comment-er, but more importantly my VERY 1ST Follower:)
    Thanks for the vanilla sugar idea! i might make some of those mug rugs that Judith posted about. I love the fact they come with there one little bowl!

    Ya it is quite addictive i can never seem to catch up on my google reader, there are so many blogs i follow. I added yours to the list! look forward to your future posts!
