200 fans and a giveaway

Yay! I have reached 200 followers!
I had been watching the numbers creeping up and when I was on 196 I thought it might be fun to do a little giveaway.
I was actually going to do a little post to encourage a couple more friends to join in the fun on this here blog, but in the end I didn't need to,
 they just came all on there own over a couple of days.
Now I have been very fortunate to win a couple of giveaways of late.
A couple of months ago I won a lovely prize from Kate.
Then I won a wonderful Lavender pack from Trishie
Next was the beautiful hearts from Stylish Kylie
And the yesterday I won a book from Erin.

So now I am going to pass some of this love around and offer a giveaway on my blog- my very first!

What you could win:
 Some lovely "redeemed" items

 Your choice of 3 herb markers, similar to these but not these ones because they have been sold.
You get to tell me what herbs you want on them if you win.

 You will also win either a map bunting or

a musical bunting, again the choice is yours.

I just couldn't decide which one, 
so I thought I would let my readers choose, 
because we all have different tastes and things that would suit our own decor.

1. This is open only to Australian residents, sorry to my international fans.
2. You must be a follower (Google friends connect- on sidebar)- and hey if you aren't already a follower- here is your chance!

 To Enter:
Simply leave a comment on this post, 
for extra chances you can like my facebook page- link is in the sidebar 
and for another chance link to this post from your facebook account or page.
Just let me know what you do in the comments.
I will draw this giveaway next Thursday.

So thank you to all 200 of you for liking my blog enough to want to come here regularly and read the goings on at five brothers one sister!

This giveaway is now closed and was won by the lovely Cheryl at Beachcomber blog
