The little barn - by Tracey Broome
The pendant...people beam in on it whenever I wear it.
Ok...so this post is a long time overdue.
Back in July I entered a comp on Tracey Broome's blog to win a random item.
Whaddya know, I only went and bloody won!
When I saw my name come up I was so over the moon it was hard to contain myself. WHATever it was I would receive was gonna be super good.
Anyhooo....about a month or so later a package turns up in the mail, which I missed as I was working in Cheltenham that day.
The next day I go to the PO to pick up the parcel (thinking it was essential oils for soap) when to my surprise there was a sticker on the front saying it was from T Broome.
Oh man...you know what I did? I opened the box up whilst sitting in my car in the high street and the first thing I pull out is a very well wrapped item...little too big for a little something something!
I could NOT believe it. A beautiful, most humble little barn in the most exquisite colour you can imagine (my favourite colour of all...you've only gotta check out my soap to know this!)....a duck egg blue barn!
I unwrapped him and held him tight and the tears just rolled! I know...bloomin' cry baby or what...but you really don't know how much this meant to me.
I am an avid reader of Tracey's blog and when I'm not up to my neck in work I leave her comments (I know I should leave more) to let her know I'm about. And...these barns have had me hooked on her blog for weeks and weeks. They are absolutely amazing and I've wanted one since I saw them. NOBODY is making anything like these, they are completely unique...I only hope it stays that way.
I held that little barn to my chest and said 'YES!' with the most amount of joy I could muster.
Then...out pops a little pendant shaped like a barn and in the same colour. Oh man, I couldn't have wished for a better pressie. I put the pendant around my neck straight away and wore it all day...proudly showing everybody.
I felt truly blessed that day. I really really did.
Tracey...thank you with all my might...thank you!
The little barn hangs over our television at the moment (i know how crap) but will find a proud spot as soon as Matt has moved into his workshop and I regain my house and space! At least hanging over the TV I get to look at it rather a lot!
So...there you have it....
So...there you have it....
Now for some more excitement....
Wanna win some stuff from me? Here's your chance.
I agreed to do this when I entered Tracey's blog so here goes:
This is called the Generosity Train, which Tracey found here and which I am now to pass on.
Here's the deal...
Please leave me a comment here on this post to be entered into the competition.
The posting will be open until Saturday morning (GMT - London) when I will put all the names into a bowl, shuffle them up a bit then announce the winners.
I will get Matt to pick the names out and read them out to me so there is no chance of me knowing who it will be!
There will be 5 (yes 5) winners in total so you stand more of a chance here!
I then have up to 1 year to post out a random gift to each person.
Your gift could turn up at any time over the course of the next year.
How cool is that?!
