Spotted Rose is ONE

OK so I am slightly giddy to share with you an amazing giveaway to celebrate my little blogs 1st birthday.

You can win ALL of these beautiful things (worth about £65.00) from some lovely ladies ...





There are so many things I love about blogging, it's my own little space to share my makes and bakes and hopefully inspire you to be creative too and I really love hearing from you all and getting to know you.

I also love all the lovely people I have 'met' through blogging. OK so I have only actually met one of these ladies to date in real life, but maybe that will change in the future.

I firstly wanted to thank that lady - Jemma of Iced Jems. She was just so lovely and supportive of me when I was starting my little blog and we have grown to be friends and I now speak to her pretty much daily which is awesome ! It's also pretty cool that she has a fabulous online shop selling bakeware that is so gorgeous and reasonably priced and now also some lovely bits for the home too! I want all of it it's just so amazing ! Some of you may be aware of my little paper straw obsession and I get them all from her lovely site. So thanks so much for your support and friendship Jemma ! She has very kindly donated an amazing red polka dot apron and some matching baking cups and of course - paper straws !!

Then on to Caroline of Patchwork Harmony & 91 Magazine - I love Carolines style, everything she does I admire, her wedding was perfect and beautiful. When I started my little Etsy shop I sent her some mint green rose earrings and I love seeing them pop up in her photos! She is so lovely and has kindly donated a copy of her fabulous online magazine which I absolutely love.

Then we come to Bethany. Now she was the first to say I was her favourite blogger - I didn't even really feel like one when she said this to me but it really meant a lot to me and the more I found out about Bethany, the more I was impressed and loved her ! She is 16 and super gorgeous and talented as she already runs her own online shop - Loving Dot. She sells the most gorgeous things and I have a few of them myself ! It's great to see her go from strength to strength and I am so excited to follow her on her journey ! She has kindly donated one of her gorgeous sewing pocket mirrors !! I have 3 of these and hope my collection keeps growing!

Next up is Allison Sadler from the amazing People Shop. My oh my, what do I say about Allison. Firstly I am super jealous of her flower delivery every Saturday and absolutely love the love her and Mr C share. She is really the loveliest lady and I really hope I get to meet her one day soon ! She has promised me a hug and I am guessing she gives pretty good ones ! She is donated a little something from her shop too so I am so excited to see what that is! I love surprises!

Then Ailie of Bramble & Bracken. Ailie is another young superstar. I am super envious of Ailies eye for something absolutely gorgeous. She has such style and this really shows in her blog and her online shop - Bramble & Bracken. Everything is so super gorgeous and stylish and she has so very kindly donated a set of her amazing trio of stamps which are just so gorgeous and versatile.

Then lastly I have thrown in a few things that I love just for you. A nice little Cath Kidston mug (I love mugs!!) and a gorgeous 'Hello' postcard. I have one too. Then a little rose ring I made and bookmark and a mini Elderflower cordial because it's cute.

Before I go I want to mention a few other lovely ladies and the first is the lovely Emily Quinton. Her flower images each morning on Instagram make me smile and her gorgeous family are just soo lovely. She always has time for you and I will never forget the time I emailed her about something and she took the time to reply when I later found out just how manic her week had been. She is a true inspiration and ooh I am super jealous of her new lovely shed ! Emily is writing her 1st book too so keep your eyes peeled for that ! She also runs photography and styling courses and I am hoping to go to one later in the year.

Also Cherry Menlove, Cherrys was probably the first blog I came across over a year ago and absolutely loved it ! Her style is just so gorgeous and she now has the most amazing online shop too - again I want everything ! She is super lovely and I just love everything she does. Her book, The Handmade Home is also pretty awesome !

Laura of We Made this home is also a very special lady. I have admired her beautiful blog and Instagram for a long time now and absolutely love everything she does, her style is just beautiful and I just want to go and live in her house ! She is also the most wonderfully strong and incredible lady and I am so thankful to know her, she's just so lovely !

Now for the lovely Amy Davis of Smudge Blog and Bots & Tots. I can't remember how I first came across Amy, I think it was probably via ABM somehow, but boy was I glad I did. She is soooo super talented and absolutely lovely. I feel really lucky to call Amy a friend and am planning on a trip out to Perth one day soon !! Go check her out everything she does is SO gorgeous, she also does the most amazing nail designs! She's just gorgeous.

Last & by no means least is Elsie of A Beautiful Mess. I am sure you are all aware of her and her sister Emma's amazing blog but if not, check it out NOW. If you are anything like me, you will check their blog daily, be totally amazed by everything they create and just want to be friends with them ! Elsie is super lovely and I love that social media allows you to chat to ladies like this as it's just awesome she replies to me and I kinda just love her ! They have also recently launched a Shop and I recently took part in the Mastering your DSLR course and it was amazing !! I will do a separate post on it as I really recommend it ! They have some amazing courses and being new to photoshop I LOVE their mini actions pack! Just amazing girls. and guys ! OOh and not forgetting their amazing app, which I guess you all have ?

There are sooo many more of you on Instagram that I adore and absolutely love sharing that little space with so thank you all, you know who you are!!

It's really such an amazing community and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for reading, commenting or just liking my pics on Instagram, you are all awesome ! xx
