Pay It Forward Game

Joanne at My Little Cottage in the Making (see my favourite blogs at the side for the link), is playing the Pay It Forward game, which I've signed up for. The rules (as explained by her)are easy. The first three people who let me know they want to play will get a small gift from me in the mail. Then in turn they list this game on their blog and the first 3 people that email them play and so on.

The gift is just a token, nothing big. It can be homemade, bought or found. Just a little something to say hi, I'm thinking of you and to put a smile on the person's face.
So if you want to play then please leave me a message and email me your address( ) and I will send you a little surprise package. If you have a blog you will need to post this game on it (but you don't have to wait to get your package from me) and send a little gift to the first three people who tell you they want to play.

I don't know how many other people read my blog other than family (I am only new after all) and I know most of you don't have blogs, so I'm going to bend the rules a little. If you don't have a blog and want to sign up, pass the game to your friends by email, or just choose 3 people to send something to or do something nice for. It's a little something positive in this world and it's a great way to get to know each other better.


  1. Esther,
    You live in Australia? How exciting. We met some friends that lived in Sydney when we took a trip to Europe several years ago. Our girls were small and enjoyed Daniel and Stephanie so much. They learned that in Australia cotton candy is fairy floss and a cigarette is a fag. But, I must ask, what is a chook?

    And, how did you get the name for your blog. It's delightful, really. Quite nice.

    Have a wonderful day. Susan

  2. Just saying "Hi!"

    I wish I could hear you read your "things about me" in your, what I imagine, lovely Australian accent.

    What a sweet blog!


Comments make me happy. Spread the love.

Get to know me

  • I love the smell of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • My favourite flowers are daisies.
  • My favourite trees are pine trees.
  • I always like to have the bickie jar full and a cake on the cake stand. I know...not that healthy, but so good to look at.
  • Autumn is my favourite month, although I do wish we had more of a change of colours up here in Queensland.
  • I love Anne of Green Gables and Laura Ingalls Wilder. They started my love affair with "old-fashioned" stuff.
  • I'm a boots and jeans kind of girl, but also love vintage skirts and dresses.
  • I like sewing and am in love with quilts at the moment.
  • I love reading. (I have a weakness for archeological thrillers and historical romances, but not Mills and Boon-type ones.)
  • I love old houses with character. No new estate houses for me. (Sorry Rosie.)
  • I love vintage/cottage/farmhouse decorating and pretty pinks and blues, with a splash of red for colour.
  • Polka dots can make me sigh with delight.
  • I have 4 chooks. They are MY pets. Another tick on my dream-come-true chart.
  • I don't eat dessert much any more. I'm not dieting, I just don't want it. (Does that mean I'm growing up if I say no to an icecream cone?)
  • I'll still always say yes to chocolate though!
  • I like to sit on the front stairs in the sun, to drink my morning cup of tea, while I contemplate what to do in the garden.
  • I've got the gardening bug again recently. It comes and goes with the weather. I'm envisioning cottage flowers in pink, blue and white to go with my green picket fence.
