Five Today

 Today The Snail Garden is five years old.  I can't believe that I have been blogging for five years!  I discovered blogs about this time in 2008 and thought that I would start one for myself as a journal/photo album and as a way to make new friends.  I have met some lovely people on-line and I am amazed that I have 90 followers.  Each blogiversary I like to host a small giveaway to say thank you to all of you that read my blog and are kind enough to leave a comment.  Last week whilst in town I bought these gorgeously sparkly bracelets as the prize for this giveaway.  I rather like them myself, so I will possibly be popping back into town to buy a second set. :)
If you would like a chance to win these bracelets please leave a comment on this post.  As you may have noticed there are four bracelets and as my blog is five years old I would like to make a little something to go with them to keep to the five theme, therefore in your comment I would appreciate it if you could state your favourite colour and I will make the extra item in that colour.  The giveaway will remain open until the end of January.

Today is also my Dad's birthday.  Here he is in the 1950's complete with Brylcreem quiff and two of my cousins.
xXx  Happy Birthday Dad  xXx

Best wishes to you all and I hope you enjoy my giveaway, Pj x
