GIVEAWAY: Catherine Colebrook homewares worth £102!


As regular readers will know, I do like a good giveaway. Today's is particularly pleasing, given that we are in the depths of winter here in England, and we could all do with a bit of perking up.

Catherine Colebrook
makes homewares with a particularly British slant. There are nine original ranges of colourful and fun textiles, mugs, pictures and prints with a vintage feel to brighten up your life, from her Second World War propaganda poster-inspired calico bags (£12):


cheering mugs (£8)


and matching prints (unframed £15, framed £40)


to Union flag tea towels (£8)


Best of all she is passionate about British business - her tea towels are screen printed in Wales, the mugs are produced by a family company in Scotland and the aprons are made in Nottinghamshire with all the textile printing and sewing done in-house. Read her fabulous back story here.

When we discussed this giveaway I was thinking maybe a mug or two, so you can imagine my glee when Catherine said she'd like to give one reader something really worthwhile. She is offering them a fabulous bundle of wonderfulness worth £102: any one of their framed prints, a tea towel in each of the colour ways, a set of four mugs (Cake is for Life, Keep Calm, Make Hay and When in Doubt) and a Keep Calm and Carry on Shopping canvas bag.

All you need to do is leave a comment below telling us what object in your house is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Due to the weight of this giveaway, I am afraid that it is for UK readers only.
