Strawberry cream tea giveaway

When the August rains settle in over the grey suburbs of Belfast there is little motivation for anything other than gallons of tea with cake.

Dashing young women with fabulous raincoats did however sport strawberries through the drizzle...

...and giveaway strawberries blossomed between showers! I hope you can find your names in the poorly photographed blur.

Poppy's playhouse was the venue for the draw, complete with curtains. (Note to self: ironing really must become a personal development priority.) And I am so very glad that Saint K was willing to be the impartial puller-outer of winning strawberry from the can as unbelievably the giveaway will be making its (less than a mile) way to Crafting Catherine! Please don't all cry, "Fix!" at once!

Happy one year of bloggism, fraise lachrymose- and thanks so most humbly to those of you who have looked over the wall of the strawberry patch and even smiled your encouragement thus far North! It has been a wonderful phenomenon! Like Northern Lights. Now that would be a good title for a blog?

What a fantastic post! Yahoo for strawberry winners!
Oh, is it really raining? And dark? Come to Colorado and I shall give you tea and cake in the sunshine. Oh wait. I have to go to school soon. You could come, too!
