3 Things..

It's my birthday today,
I'm older than yesterday la la la,
yep today is my cough cough birthday and thanks to the Wii Fit off Hub I'm shattered !!

It's also my Bloversary - well it's on the 10th really but there's no harm being a day early is there? And last but not least it's also my 100th post.

You know when I first started this little Blog of mine I had no idea that I woul
d meet so many lovely people from all walks of life and from all over the world, that I would learn so many new things . Over the past year you have made me laugh and cry, you have let me into your lives and you have accepted me..... A very big Thank you to each and every one of you....

As a pressie I've been knitting furiously and have decided you can choose your present if you should win my little celebratory giveaway.

First we have William, ( all names chosen by Milo )

William is approx 7" tall and is sporting a rather fetching blue and green stripey jumper , which are his favourite colours.

Next is Freya

Freya is also 7" tall and loves a good curry, she is also partial to the odd licquorice allsort.

Then we have Chance - I promise that Milo has never seen an episode of Dynasty or Dallas !!

Chance is a little cutie and likes nothing better than a good cuddle.

Lastly we would have had Bertha who was originally wearing a lemon jumper, but my friend saw her and said if I gave her a pink and white stripey jumper she would buy her - I couldn't refuse.
I'm going to show you her anyway as she is slightly different from the others at approx 10" tall and made from a soft mohair.

Because we no longer have Bertha I am also going to offer a "" mystery"". So all you have to do is leave a comment and state which animal you would like , William, Freya, Chance or Mystery.
I'll pick a winner next Friday the 16th.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I could not choose between any of them as they are all sooooooooo cute, and I would hate to hurt their feelings!!!

Oh Happy birthday, blogaversary, and 100th post ... wishing you many many more! Hope you have some fun plans ~

I think I'm in love with Chance and his big floppy ears ... It looks like he is blowing a kiss out to all us readers!

You really weren't kidding when you said you were busy!

Hope you have a great day birthday girl ~

Ragged Roses said...

Happy New Year, Happy Birthday, Happy Blogaversary too! Wow what a day for you! Looking forward to reading more of your posts this year. Love all your knitting but my heart belongs to Chance! Have a great day

Jackie said...

Happy Birthday! Hope it's a good one :o)

I am quite new to your blog and love seeing the places you visit. I have visited a few myself as I have an Aunty who stays in Weardale!

If I was lucky enough to win your giveaway then please could I have Freya. I'm quite partial to a liquorice Allsort too!

happy birthday Lisa, hope you have a lovely cake filled
congrats on the 100, and the year of blogging too, it's been such fun to get to know you. as for the prize, well it would have to be long floppy bunny ears for me......

Kitty said...

Blimey, how clever are you to get that lot to coincide? Blogoversary, birthday AND 100 posts. I take my hat off to you, I really do.

Hope you're having a fantabulous day. So jealous you have Wii fit - I'm saving!

Love your little knitted thingies - William for me and the Wrinklets if we win, please!

*H*A*P*P*Y* *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*

Happy Birthday Lisa! Happy Blogaversary too! And Happy 100th Post! It's all go around here today!! :)

You did say to come back today and I'm sure glad I did. I do love Chance but the pull of the mystery choice is grabbing me I think. That is if I was lucky enough to win. If I'm not - then it would be enough for me to say well done on your knitting creations, they are fab!! We are definitely singing from the same 'hymn sheet' ;)

Lovely to have met you in your first year of blogging, I look forward to carrying on reading your blog in your 2nd year xx

Kellie said...

Christy A. said...

Happy happy birthday to you!!!! Happy blogsary too! All the bunnies are so cute but Bertha bunny stole my heart!

Camilla said...

Your knitting is beautiful, if I made a choice it would be William.

Vanessa said...

Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Lisa, Happy Birthday to you!

Hope you have a great day!

As a fan of both Dynasty & Dallas, when Booby Ewing was shot I was devastated, so my choice has to be Chance!

Happy Happy Birthday! Happy Happy Blogaversary and Happy Happy 100th post!
What a wonderful generous giveaway to celebrate, any one of them would be a treat. I hope you have a wonderful day today.

Kim McBirnie said...

Happy Birthday to you! I'd sing, but it doesn't have quite the same effect when it is typed.
About my shoes - I didn't say I wouldn't fall over, did I? Trouble is, Amazon have got a really good shoe sale and there are two pairs of boots, both less then twenty quid each, that I may I may have to return one pair of shoes.....
can't wait to see your Clarks pruchase when they arrive!

So many milestones. How exciting! It sounds as if you had a great birthday, and you've certainly been very busy producing all those new friends.

They're all lovely but my choice would be Chance - just love the ears and jumper!

Here's to your next birthday/anniversary, whichever it may be.

Happy Birthday!! It's my birthday on tuesday, and I've managed to book the week off work, so it's all good! :) I love your knitted toys - you are very talented. As I cannot resist a giveaway, I would gamble on "Mystery". I wonder what Mystery will turn out to be....?

retrorose said...

Happy birthday Mrs! I had mine 2 weeks ago (36, yuk). I love the knitted toys, and yes it is chance that I love most! Thank-you for your reply on my blog last week, honestly I haven't been dwelling too much on it, most of my day goes by as normal, it is just the odd times I get caught unawares, and I miss her so much.Gx

Louise said...

Wow!! Happy Birthday, happy blogaversary and happy 100 posts. That's fantastic!! I hope you had a really lovely day being spoilt and having fun with all your lovely boys.
I think they are all cute little creatures but Chance is irresisible!
By the way, I sent your mag last Friday so it's on its way! xx

Deb said...

Happy Birthday! Mine is on the 15th :-) & Happy blogaversary!! I would love to be entered in your giveaway & my favourite is William.

Bertie x said...

Hello, Happy Birthday, blogaversary,and 100th post to you! What a lovely coincidence. It's a tough one, but i think I would choose Chance. I'm a huge Dynasty fan, and my little girl would just adore him.

Happy (belated) birthday Lisa- I have just sent you an email ( my usual long one so get yourself a cup of tea).I love surprises, and I also always go for the underdog, so whichever gorgeous little creature gets the least requests would be my choice.
