And the winner is....

JANIE!! I put all the names into my big Bridgewater Hearts mug last night & your name was pulled out.

Congratulations - I will love to think of you drinking a cup of something lovely out of this gorgeous creation and hope that sometimes you'll think of me too!!

Please DM me your address on my Twitter page or you can e-mail me if you'd rather at and I'll post it off to you as soon as I can after the Bank Holiday on Monday.

I'm so sorry to all those who didn't win...but I'll be doing another giveaway very soon, I'm planning it already. Thanks so much for taking part and all the lovely comments.

Thanks, too, for all your support in the run-up to the awful protest held in our town yesterday. I'm really pleased to say that, due to a huge police presence (almost one officer to each protester!) and the residents of the town staying away to avoid passed off as smoothly as it could probably have done. There were 12 arrests, but most importantly it's OVER and they're GONE! Whatever they hoped to achieve didn't, I'm proud to say, work here!

Now we can relax and enjoy the rest of the weekend! I hope you do too...xox

  4. Rachel, I'm thrilled! When I first left a comment on your giveaway post, my main thought was how sweet you were to be celebrating your dad's homecoming by giving something to someone else, but then I thought how lovely it would be to have this beautiful Emma Bridgewater mug as a reminder of you, and I confess, I hoped I'd win it :) I will love having this tangible link to you. I'll think of you and our Emma Bridgewater friends every time I see it. Thank you so much, Rachel! And thank you, Silke, Morwenna, and Gert for your congratulations :)
