The generosity of strangers

Last week I was reading a blog called through my kitchen window which is a lovely food/life blog if you want to check it out, filled with some lovely recipes and gorgeous photography....Anyway, Mariana was offering some books as a give away to anyone who wanted them.  I looked, and then looked again and quickly typed excitedly which books I'd love. I really wanted all of them but that was just plain greedy.  And look what arrived today, with a little card with some lovely words. I was truly thrilled, and touched by the generosity of a perfect stranger, thank you Mariana!


So my dear readers, that's my feel good tale.

Now what I'd like to do is to pay that forward....I've got a pile of Delicious magazines sitting here gathering dust that are a wonderful foodie read with beautiful articles and recipes that I'm offering up to someone, anyone who would like them.  I don't want money for postage, there is no catch, the only stipulation is its for Australian readers only, sorry!  Leave me a message and they are yours, first in best dressed!! Although, I've probably got enough for 2 bundles.....

Ciao, Jan

  1. Such kind words - thank you Janis. The truth is the books were going to Lifeline anyway - I had a lightbulb moment and thought of the giveaway mainly as a bit of fun for me. It's a real thrill to hear you are excited and that makes it all the better.

    I'm chuckling at your 'giveaway' - looks like it's contagious and I fear between the two of us - we may have started a ball rolling. Hehe. Interesting to see what happens.

    Enjoy Janis - enjoy!

    Cheers - The Stranger.
