Magic Monday Giveaway

It is a hideously miserable Monday morning out there today but there is no day that is wholly awful and instead of bemoaning the misery, I've decided to focus on the magic. If I can find any... if not, I'll just send a bit of it your way instead!
Let's see...
  • We had an extra little companion on the walk to school this morning and she was the sweetest little chatterbox ever and kept our spirits up as we trudged through the rain. She was wearing the most adorable pink raincoat with unicorns all over it, and unknowingly inspired this giveaway! (See below)
  • On my way home, I stopped into the supermarket for a few essentials pain au chocolat and spotted some tiny wooden 'Christmas Decorations'. I've no idea what I'll do with them yet but I think they might need some gold paint... or to be stuck onto a festive greeting card... or maybe even to feature in a Christmas doll house scene? Finds like this float my boat.
  • So then there was a quiet house, and the pain au chocolat and earl grey tea and rain on the windows and yellow leaves dancing outside. And my laptop, where I found...
  • ... an email telling me that I have a ticket to attend the Knitting & Stitching Show in the RDS this weekend (12-15 November) and I am SO excited! I don't know how it's possible but I've never been before and it's been on my 'to-do' list for so long I can't believe I'm finally getting to go. There are so many exhibits I want to see and a whole list of workshops I'd like to try (See HERE for info) but I am especially excited to see 'The Stitchmongers' work.
Knitted, crocheted and sequined fish! How cool is that?!
If you'd like to go too I spotted a code to get you a €2 discount on tickets. Click here:  or call (UK) +44 (0) 1473 321872 and quote the code EX15 by midday Wednesday 11th November. Maybe I'll see you there?!

And now, as promised, here is a little bit of magic for you:

 I've got two unicorn necklaces and two unicorn sticker-sheets to giveaway to two lucky winners!

The necklaces are technically child-sized but I can confirm that they do fit a grown woman's neck (*ahem* I may or may not have one of my own...)
These would make a great stocking stuffer for you or the unicorn lover in your life and all you have to do to be in with a chance to win  is leave a comment below!

(An 'aul share on Facebook or Twitter would be nice too, if you're feeling that way inclined.)

I'll draw two winners on Friday the 13th November (because that might just be a day you need a little pick me up!) and pop them in the post early next week.

Good luck and have a magical Monday!
