i just wanted to say....thank you (a giveaway)

This year has seen Che & Fidel grow beyond my expectations. And I have you (and you and you and you) to thank. Without your regular visits and your beautiful and encouraging comments the growth and expansion wouldn't be possible. 

It's with much gratitude that I bring you this little giveaway. Ideally I would like to send you all a sweet package in the mail...but there is, of course, the reality (not my strong point). Instead, three of you will receive one of the gift packages above - collections of gorgeous, hand-picked-by-me products that will, no doubt, be a welcome addition to your home and your Christmas. 

To the artists, creatives and companies who have contributed....you have been so generous and I am very grateful.

*UPDATE* - for those who haven't already read this on facebook....

My beautiful friend and fellow blogger Nicole (muma to three boys aged 6, 7 & 10) lost her home and all her possessions in a house fire on Friday night. Thankfully this family of five are all safe and sound...but they only have the clothes on their backs.

I have decided to announce two winners for this giveaway - the third package will go to Nicole. I am sure that you will all understand and respect my decision. 

If you are interested in helping this family in any way please email me....thank you.

COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED. 

The first winner is #384 - B
The second winner is #192 Princesspillar

Congratulations ladies. Let's chat over email about details x
