My first giveaway!


I'm so excited. I finally get to host my first giveaway.While the blog has been up and running for a number of months, I've been blogging seriously for almost a month now, so I'm thrilled to be hosting my first giveaway as a way to celebrate my first big month. September has brought so many good things my way and I'm very grateful. I have new followers, and sponsors who are AMAZING and I've almost reached 10,000 views! Isn't that awesome?! That's a big deal for a small town girl like me who never would have thought anyone would want to keep up with what I do. So to celebrate I'm offering some great goodies to those of you that love knitting, vintage, coffee, professional photo editing and blogging.

Vicki from The Domesticated Me
Blog | Facebook | 
What's up for grabs from Vicki? 6 months of advertising on my blog with a 250x250 ad. This includes a monthly feature post about their blog/shop whatever they would like me to feature.

I'm Vicki. I live in a small country town in Australia with my completely amazing daughter (we shall call her Monkey). We are both obsessed with all things DIY and crafty. If you ever visited us you would our dining room table is always messy with our latest project. A couple of years ago we moved from the city to the country. I have to say that it's the best thing I have ever done. Life in the country is so different. Moving to the country somehow kick-started what I like to call my "Betty Crocker" phase (code for: I love to bake).

Ever since I was kid I have always loved home renovating, but we live in a rental (houses are expensive) and so I'm pretty limited in what we can do. Thankfully I have some awesome landlords who have allowed me to paint (they even paid for it!), and so room by room we are giving our place a "cosmetic"
makeover. I sell things from around the house that we no longer need or use, and we put that money into new things to decorate the house with. (yes I am a frugal mum as well!)

And finally, what am I giving away? 
I'm giving away a hand knit pair of Eyelet slippers, a mug cozy (both in a colour of your choosing!) AND Large Ad space on The Rural Knitter for 2 months! 

So let's get to it. 
- Complete all the entries to get as many chances to win as possible and show support to my blogging friends.
- The giveaway ends on Sunday, Sept. 30th at midnight.
- Please be honest with your entries. I'm going to look into all follows before picking the winner. 
- One winner takes all!!
