Wanderings and Blogannivsary Giveaway

Tomorrow I celebrate the 5th anniversary of Country Fragrance!  We were living in Townsville when I first decided to start my blog, and back then it was with the intention of being able to share with family and friends as we made the big move back to Victoria, to a little country spot in the North East of the state.    Over the 5 yrs I've shared how we have transformed this little cottage, family moments, crafts of various types, gardening and cooking.  
I really want to thank those of you who stop by to visit with me here, and especially to those of you who stop in and leave a comment, it's always nice to know I have company,  and I've enjoyed getting to know others from somewhat near to those on the other side of the globe ! 
 So I thought you might appreciate a little giveaway -  it is open to anyone who is a follower, as I feel it is my followers I need to thank .....all you need do is leave a comment on any of my posts from yesterday, up till Sunday night (Aussie time).  On Monday I will draw out  3 winners ............who will receive one of my handmade natural soaps (olive oil, essential oils, herbs) and a couple of my handmade candle melts (beeswax and essential oils) - Oh and you best mention if you have a favourite smell, I can't guarantee you will get it, but you never know your luck .....
Varieties here- Choc mint, Vanilla and Coffee Bean, Orange Cinnamon

Beeswax Candle Melts - essential oils include lavender, orange, lemon, rose, patchouli

For something new this year, I've decided that Wednesdays will be the day I share something to do with wanderings .....hence it shall become Wednesday Wanderings  .......... This week I'm sharing a few photos from a little town also in the North East of Vic, about 90kms from me....... Beechworth 
Some you may be familiar with Beechworth Honey, so I've taken a photo of inside the shop for you......


My January OPAM finishes were small due to the dental work, but I did get a dishcloth crocheted and a made a little knitted cowl which should come in handy in winter


Gotta run, talk soon I hope,
Sharm

Happy Blogiversary.
I love hand made soaps. Coffee or citrus are lovely although not a fan of VANILLA.
Beechworth is lovely. Not too far from home
