Happy Blog Birthday {Giveaway}

A year ago today I decided to start this little blog Black Velvet Chair, designed as a self development tool, a little something to scrapbook my design and DIY life whilst entertaining my mind and possibly others. Black Velvet chair has become part of my daily life, reading blogs inspires me continuously and the beautiful friends that have been made far and wide continues to astound me. My very first blog post.

I wanted to buy myself a self present to mark the occasion so I headed over to Kerri’s shop Driftwood Interiors and purchased a print from the “Collected series” for myself, after such positive reaction last Christmas gifting prints to my Mother and Mother In law. True to style with self presents I usually end up purchasing a present equally as brilliant for a friend (I am strange like that). I am super excited to offer one of my bloggy friends this beautiful present:


To be gifted this lovely Pink Floral Watercolor - Bouquet in Flow Blue from Driftwood Interiors you need to be a Black Velvet Chair follower, simply leave a comment letting me know your favourite or most memorable Black Velvet Chair moment or post over the last year. For three additional entries post about Black Velvet chair on your blog then leave three separate comments letting me know.

The lucky winner will be drawn On Monday 31st October 2011.

Goodluck and Thankyou all for your support over the past year!


PS: This is the Feather print "Collected" I purchased as a Self Present.
Feel free to Self Present over at Driftwood Interiors also.
