Win a box of robotness!
An embroidered tablecloth. It's a few feet square so would look good at an angle, revealing the corners of a nicely polished table. There's the same embroidery at each of the four corners. I do like this. I've been tempted to keep it, but no, I shall pass it on to you. I have a plain tablecloth to embroider, so you can have the real vintage deal.
A collection of Railway Detective stories. Trains and crime fiction, two things I rattle on about fairly regularly.
I was thinking this box didn't really have a theme, but by and large it's 'things to do when it's wet': cook something tasty, brew a pot of tea, and plonk it all nicely on the table while you settle down to enjoy cosy crime stories involving steam trains. And if you're wondering where the brooch fits in, any time of day or night is diamante time. Sparkles are jolly cheering in dreary weather.
So, that's your lot. (Unless I find something else to pop in over the next week. You never know.) Leave ONE comment if you'd like to be in with a chance of winning. On the 30th of July, I'll fire up the random number generator and see who's going to get the box.
*As a complete dish with sauce, the way we know it nowadays, it seems to have been invented in Cumbria in the 1970s, though the cake part of the dish appears to stem from Canada via Lancashire. So definitely not Devon, and not really old enough a recipe to be 'traditional' anywhere.
