My First Giveaway.

Hi there, I'm so excited to at last have my new blog, it is so beautiful and I bet you know who had a hand in the design, Yes! of course the fabulous 'Karen Valentine'. Once again she has worked her magic and given me just what I wanted.

The English Romantic will be the place to buy all those beautiful bits and pieces that I,m sure you will love and to celebrate my launch I am having my first Giveaway.

Just leave me a comment to say 'Hello' and you get one chance to win. Become a follower and you'll get two chances.
This is what I've put together just for you.

It's a pretty velvet zipped bag decorated with lace and inside you'll find, one of my grandmas crocheted doilys ,some pieces of lace and ribbon, a length of bead fringe and a little posy of velvet millinery flowers.

I'm going to get my grandson to draw the winner before he starts College on the 13th of September. He is going to be excited too that day.
I'll be putting some of these' Lucious Inspirations' in my shop soon.
Good Luck everyone.
xox Angela.
