So this is my 200th blog post and on the 22nd of March this little blog will be 2 years old.
I have decided to mark the occasion with a little Birthday present. I have put together a package of fun little things, a mixture of old and new, silly and sensible, useless and useful. Good friends of mine would all tell you how much I love to put together packages for people. Usually I know who I am sending the package to and I make it to suit them. In this case I have tried to fill it with things that I would love. If you like The Clutter, I hope you'll like this package.
Inside I have packed...
A spinning top.
A peanut eraser.
A marbled pencil.
A flick knife comb.
A pencil on a string.
A small paper garland.
4 Chinese bull dog clips.
An Oak leaf cookie cutter.
Some chocolate lady birds.
Some cocktail stick animals.
A French knitting gentleman.
A vintage Pelikan Bakelite box.
3 vintage paper cigarette bags.
A packet of paints for Easter eggs.
2 silly paper faces from Kathmandu.
A vintage match box with daisies on it.
Little paper box with a nice sticker on it.
A vintage paper book, "The ABC of Hygiene".
2 vintage pins, 1 little hat and 1 rye bread package.
A vintage Charlie Brown PEZ despenser (and some PEZ).
Leave a comment on this blog post (perhaps take the opportunity to ask me a question) and I will draw a winner on the 22nd. I might even make a couple of tiny runner up packages too. Anyone should be able to comment, you don't need a blogger account.
I've also decided to mark this occasion with a promise. I've always assumed that this blog has a microscopic readership. I blogged purely for myself and a couple of friends and if it was enjoyed by anyone else, that was just a happy accident. I had used this assumption as an excuse for laziness. I promise that from now on I will take my blog a little more seriously. This does NOT mean the posts will be any less silly, just that I plan to be more responsible when it comes to linking the sources of the images I use. I am also going back through my blog a little each day and trying to add links where they have been missing. I would like to say sorry to anyone who has spotted their work on my blog with out a credit. Get in touch and I will sort it out. (gemma.budden[at]googlemail.com)
And, I have another surprise for you tomorrow. Very very excited about this one.
