Hellooooo, guess what, we have a Beach Cottage winner.

I’ve read through lots of entries to this little giveaway, to be honest I had had a lot advice about not doing a giveaway that involved commenting because people can’t be bothered to comment, it takes too much time nowadays. But when I thought about that I thought, yeah, totally agree, I am guilty as the next person of flying on into my favourite blogs, reading, nodding, smiling, getting my fix and then getting out of there.  But the point of this was for me to say thanks to you for stopping by and if you commented great….what happened was you were kinda nice, so that’s really cool right?

Sometimes it’s weird being a blogger…like really, you talk to other women on the net about painting things white and flowers???  And finding vintage things.  And the Swedish Boutique??? And they like give a ****??!

Yep baby I sure do.  They are out there too.

Anyway the winner is Pam  :  pamb_au at yahoo dot com

Many Congratulations and thanks so much to all of you for being part of this blog, I really appreciate it, sorry I couldn’t stretch to an iPad mini for all of you.

And, I have to tell you that the Beach Cottage Giveaway Coffers just got a little bit of a top-up, woot woot to that…there has been a lot said of monetizing blogs lately, yadda yadda, for me this is the good side of it.

Watch out for the next one soon.


p.s. I have been asked if this giveaway was sponsored, ahem, yes 100% by moi and abeachcottage.com, thank you and goodnight.

    I can’t believe people think commenting takes too much time! For me, I often don’t comment because I feel like I have nothing to add to the existing comments, or nothing interesting to say! But I think if you’re going to the trouble of doing a giveaway then it’s really not too much trouble for people to comment if they want to be in the running to win :) Thanks for doing the giveaway and forcing us lurkers to come out of hiding once in a while!
