a few months ago i was invited on a behind-the-scenes tour of the emma bridgewater pottery factory in stoke-on-trent and was absolutely gutted not to be able to attend, as it clashed with something important at work. but knowing how sad i was not to be able to go, those lovely people at emma bridgewater sent me out a personalised mug anyway, with my twitter handle emblazoned across it – isn’t that sweet!?

plus they are offering my wonderful blog readers the chance to win a personalised mug too – just in time for christmas! it would make a lovely gift for a loved one or work colleague – or perhaps you just want to treat yourself (because we all need to treat ourselves once in a while, right?).

you can even choose your favourite pattern from their wonderful array of charming prints (i love the polka dots and pink stars) and they will print up your personalised message on a ½ pint mug.

all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me which your favourite emma bridgewater pattern is. you can also secure an extra entry by ‘liking’ the fabric of my life facebook page here.

this giveaway is open to all residents of mainland united kingdom (except employees of the promoter, their families and anyone professionally involved with this promotion). the giveaway closes at 11.59pm on 21st november 2012, and the winner will be drawn at random and notified after this date.
