Thanks to Joe’s Toes I can hold a giveaway.
I saw Joe’s Toes first at the Handmade Fair last September at Hampton Court… I blogged a little about the fair here and also on my other blog, Angel Jem’s City Cottage which is less about hygge and more about a good complain now and again. We had a good chinwag, since it turned out that Amanda was originally from Garston in Liverpool and knew where I lived almost exactly. It’s a small world.
I missed her at Yarndale and although a pair of slippers was always on the cards for me, I never got the time to settle down and order them. So when Amanda (that’s Joe’s Mum who runs the whole show) offered me a slipper kit as a giveaway on the blog, I decided to bite the bullet myself and get me the pair of my dreams. Now I have a pair to make and a pair to give away. Lucky lucky you.
I’ll probably blog about my own pair as I make them. Slippers are so hyggely, aren’t they?
The giveaway pair are in turquoise and teal, size 7/8 but can be changed to suit the winner, and come with thread to sew them up, the plastic needle to do it with and flowers to decorate them with. Full instructions are available on the Joe’s Toes website, but the pieces are pre-punched, and I’m told the whole task takes less than an evening.
Entry is really easy via
You need to comment below, follow me on Twitter at @AngelKneale or visit the Facebook page for this blog, entry opens today and closes at Midnight on 22nd March. That’s around a week to enter. Please do share the competition links on your own social media, and good luck!
*****UK only for the slippers, but the book posts internationally*****
And a word from our sponsors:
My book, 50 Ways to Hygge the British Way is available in Paperback and Kindle version from Amazon from March 17th. That’s this Friday. I have a giveaway for the book about to start this week. The contents of the blog are entirely different from the blog, so don’t worry that it’s just posts rehashed. Not yet, anyway. If you purchase through the links on this page, I get a couple of pence extra per copy.
****How to Hygge the British Way Blog isn’t monetised. I have taken the decision that I want to remain neutral and not to promote things just because. I don’t carry adverts and I will only ever review items that I have bought myself, or that I think will help to promote hygge in a busy life. To do this, I need support. Even just the price of a coffee adds up to a book over time, and it means I can stay independent. Would you help? Please consider clicking through to paypal.me/HyggeJem and leaving even a small amount. I’d be very grateful. Thank you.***
