One World, One Heart 2011

Like Floss, I am joining in the One World, One Heart event this year.


This event [details here] was set up five years ago by a blogger called Lisa to bring together bloggers around the world. I’ve been blogging for nearly three years now and made so many new friends through the blog.

I never would have believed that I would have found myself in regular contact with people in Australia, Canada, England, France, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Peru,Scotland, the USA, Wales …and more [all those places listed alphabetically so as not to offend anyone!]

I have also caught up with old friends too – who have stumbled across my ramblings, and then made contact again. That has been a really unexpected bonus.

Lisa asks for all participants to have a ‘door prize’ – and as many of my posts have revolved round books, films, food and crafts, I have decided on this little parcel


Contents: A sampler book of 30 recipes from Julia Child’s French Cooking [that’s covered book, film and food!] and then a handcrafted ribbon bookmark and finally a facecloth – which will be embroidered with the initial or name of the winner’s choice [so do not worry if you are not Rachel, Ruth or Robert! this one in the picture is destined for someone else]

So leave a comment ON THIS POST if you would like to be included and then I will make the draw on 17th February

And do check out some of the other OWOH bloggers over the next few days - you may find other blogs you really enjoy and make more friends!


  1. What a good idea - I'm headed straight over to check this all out (how did I miss this for the last 2 years?)
