Giveaway Thursday!


Hello! How are you today?



I'm a bit excited today, the sun is shining and I'm happy because my little online
store is finally updated and looking snazzy!


I hope to keep it looking this way with lots of new bits & pieces,


including of course..


lots of bunnies!


These are some of the bunnies you will find in my store today..


I do hope you will pop/hop over and have a look.


You will also find this rainbow quilt cover, the first of many I hope!



To celebrate the shop reopening I am happy to say I am having a giveaway!


 This little blue bunny is looking for a new home..



Her name is Bluebell, of course. She has been lovingly made with beautiful soft alpaca wool and she is wearing a dear little blue woollen cardigan and a pretty laced edged flowery skirt. Did I mention she is super cuddly? Oh yes she is!

There are several ways to win this little bunny....

*  if you follow my blog you will have one chance,  
                  *  if you 'like' the Dandelion Facebook page you will have two 
           *  and if you are a follower on Instagram you'll have three!!

 Please leave me a comment so that I know. And if you feel like it tell me the name of your most loved childhood toy. This giveaway is open to all, Australia & O/S so please spread the word! I do hope you win!

Thanks to all my friends out there, I really love all your comments and thoughts, some of you I have known for a long time now and some are new friends which is lovely too. So good luck, and
see you soon! xo

I have been a follower since I started my blog. I now follow on fb and instagram. This is a sweet giveaway! My Lucy would treasure it as I did my raggedy Ann doll. I loved her ! I confess I am in love with Bluebell, she is so sweet. Good luck to all!

Christina said...

Oh, Bluebell is a lovely girl and would be a perfect Easter gift for our new little one.

I still have my childhood doll, Cohen plays with her now, though she never had a name for some reason.

PS. I am a follower and liker.

I've never actually followed a blog before Beck, so yours will be my very first! ( I'll just have to work out how to follow!! ) I do however follow you on instagram...
I had too favourite dolls when I was little, a baby doll named Patatina and my Raggedy Anne doll.. I know our lil grand daughter would love finding bluebell at Granny's on Easter Sunday xx

Maxabella said...

Your bunnies have a way about them, Beck. I see their little faces and I just melt.

My childhood friend was Bill. Just Bill. A tired old brown bear that I loved to pieces. Literally. x

I'm a new follower to your blog, though I've been an IG follower for a while. I just liked your lovely FB page too to get another entry!

My favourite childhood toy is actually a little blue bunny funnily enough. I got it for Easter the year my baby brother was born and he still sleeps with me (the bunny that is). He's been to 11 countries in Europe, NZ and all over Australia. Very well travelled and loved!

Hi Bec, your shop looks great, all the best with it.
I am already a follower here, am now over on FB and instagram too :)
I think Bluebell, would feel right at home here in ZippyZippy HQ, I need some female company with all these males.

I am opting for 2 entries as I am not on FB but am about to follow your blog and already follow you on instagram. I would love to win Bluebell - she is glorious. My fave toy as a child was my bride doll who is now played with by my daughter (the fact she has a mullet has never dissuaded Milly from loving her as much as I did in the 70's).

Off to peek in your shop now...

Hi Bec. I'm friends on instagram and just started following your blog. Great idea, and I love the bunny. My favorite toy as a child was an orange and brown (it was the 70s!) dog called Monty. He was very dear, and fell apart with too much love! My little 1 year old would LOVE Bluebell!

Hello Lovely. I still have my teddy bear. He's tucked away, but occasionally when l come across him l give him a little hug. He was velveteen, but that's all worn of now.
I love following your blog on FB.

IG follower showing some love!! I remember a very sweet brown teddy that my Mum had had to repair after the dog ate his nose. She had hand sewn on some navy blue material over his nose, she still has it today.

Beautiful work by the way, I love the quilt you made .... so beautiful!!

Warm regards,
Linda

The shop looks fab! Hooray. And I love your bunnies, they have such sweet shy faces and different personalities.

I didn't have a teddy but Mr F had Bluey, who survives today, if somewhat worse for wear.

She's so lovely! My favourite toy was my baby doll, and my mums old dolls, actually ALL my dolls! I have a big doll called Betsy, she was as tall as me when I first got her..x

Selina said...

I follow your lovely blog. Bluebell is adorable. We'd give her a great home ;)
As a child of the 80s my childhood doll was a cabbage patch and a my child. xx

My most loved childhood doll was named Tanya - she had curly black hair and brown eyes (which was very uncommon way back when I was a child). My mother very generously gave her away to an orphanage when I was a teenager (have never got over that!!!). I loved this doll so much that my own daughter has Tanya as her middle name and has curly dark hair and brown eyes!

Eli said...

Bluebell is gorgeous! My favourite toy was a blue monkey which is simply called "Monkey". Not very adventurous. I know. However, he is still here and still being loved.

I am a follower of your blog and on fb too. My favourite toy was a panda bear, cant remember its name though. Once it started to fall apart mum threw it out without me knowing and told me years later what happened to it. I even bought my daughter a panda similar to it before she was born so I could have one to reminisce over. Love your new look blog and store too Beck, keep up the great work!

hey gorgeous Beck, please don't enter me in the giveaway, but i just wanted to say how gorgeous Bluebell is and how fabulous your shop is looking. SO much to love.
I cannot name a favourite childhood toy, i had too many and couldn't pick one, but a few were Wilbur, Rolph, Spot, Lamby, Dophy, Pengey, giraffey and little grey kitty um and that's only off the top of my head xo

Ann ~ she was a Raggedy Ann doll that my Mum made for me. She had a bright green dress made out of the same fabric that I had a dress in when I was about 2.
Yep ~ I follow you everywhere ~ who wouldn't!

Thank you for the chance to win your cute bunny, I have a new great-neice that I would gift it to. I follow your blog.

Your bunnies are really lovely. My favourite toy when I was a young one was Scotty. Scotty was a georgeous dark grey West Highland Terrier or 'Scotty dog' toy. Scotty had a wonderful woolen tartan dog coat. He was tuff and texturerd and was great to snuggle your face in! Thanks for making me think of Scotty! Your shop is really lovely.

Rachel said...

I follow your blog and your instagram: My favourite toy as a child was my My Child doll I called her Trudey after my Mum!!

Tania said...

That little bunny is just the sweetest! My favourite childhood toy was a little bear (that kind of looked like a cat) and I named her Kitty Litty.
By the way, nice to find you on here after admiring your pics on Instagram :)

Jo - Dusty Plum said...

I follow you on Instagram (hello! from Westgarth!) and have now discovered your blog, I liked your Facebook page last night .. think I've got it covered!
I love your photos and your wabbits. Sweet :)

Jo - Dusty Plum said...

PS my favourite childhood toy/doll was my huge rag doll Tilly. I didn't have a lot of toys growing up but I remember finally being taller than her :)

Claire said...

Hey Beck, I hope I've popped back in time to enter your lovely giveaway.....

Your bunnies are all gorgeous......my favourite childhood toy? Hmmm, can't say I had a particular favourite, but I do have some wonderful story books from when I was a kidlet and they bring back some delightful memories.

I'm a follower too......

I love all your bunny creations and Bluebell is extra adorable! I can imagine her skipping around the veggie patch and nibbling away early in the morning when the dew is thick on the grass and no one is watching!

My favorite toy friend was a soft dog with huge eyes called Thomas... And I still have him.

Lovely to see your Autumn apples!

Love Laura

I have admired your bunnies for awhile now! My favourite toy from childhood is a baby doll called Susie who i still have. To make her even more special, she is dressed in a gorgeous pink layette that my beloved Nan knitted for her. Whenever I look at her I can see my Nan sitting on the couch in her lounge room knitting away, lovely memories!
