Centuries at a time.

100 followers?! Really? My goodness, it was only a few days ago that I woke up to find I had 50 people reading my blog. I am feeling a little bit giddy with excitement! As I am sure most of you know, I have been working on a few designs and things, some of which I have been selling in my little online corner of the interweb, my Miss Sparkle store, And because, well, Im not a millionare so I can gift you all something stupendious, I thought, there might be a way that I am able to utalise this wee skill to give something back to you lovelies, for making my days that little bit brighter. So here we go. Im creating notecards. I mean, who doesnt love sending and recieving mail? I think you all have worked out that I am a big fan of it! So, I thought I would keep on, keeping on, and when I say notecards, I dont just mean any old notecards. Nah Uh! These are cards just for you! Thats right!

So. Heres what you have to do in order to 'enter'.
All you have to do, is be a follower of the blog (old, or new, it doesnt matter, but this is a present for all my lovely readers...) and then leave me a comment with your favourite quote. It might be a lyric from your favourite song, a quote from a book, a famous saying, or something you just love. It really doesnt matter. Then, ill whip up a pretty design, it might have a drawing, or it might just have words, who knows! Ill see how I get inspired. Then, I will make up the cards, email you and get your address, and then send them on their merry way, so that you can send them out to other people and brighten their day, just like you help brighten mine! Oh Oh OH! And please leave your email address, so I can get in touch with you! Thanks!!

Isnt it simple? I think so!! Im going to leave this open for a while, it might take me a little while to get through them all, but there you have it.

Love, cuddles and nose smoosh kisses to you all! xox


  1. congrats on 100 followers! that is impressive. I just checked out your store and your designs are AMAZING. I may be purchasing in the near future. But for a favourite quote "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" - Oscar Wilde. I used it in my highschool, and university yearbook, and I still love it so much :)

  2. You deserve to have a hundred followers cause your blog is so wonderful!What a nice thing for you to do.
    My favourite quote is “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke. I am not sure why but it has always rang true to me.
    I also emailed you from your post yesterday :-)

  3. Hi I just found your lovely blog! Congrats on over 100 followers!! Looking forward to coming back with a cup of tea later tonight to read some more!
    My favourite quote is by iconic Australian designer Jenny Kee "Live simply, so others can simply live". I am trying to follow this in my everyday life :)

  4. YEAH! Congrats on having so many followers - you deserve it!

    My favorite quote? "What lies before us and what lies behind us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." (I may have gotten that backwards!!!)

  5. Congratulations! What a cute idea!

    "Too often we understimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around."


  6. oh my goodness, you are so sweet! i love your blog!! and your shop! if i had money i would definitely be purchasing something. but my favorite quote as of now is:
    "...sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in..." - American Beauty
    "i have no special talents. i am passionately curious" - albert einstein
    "what we have here is a dreamer. someone completely out of touch with reality" - virgin suicides

    okay. i'm obviously not expecting you to do all of these but i'm really indecisive. so i guess YOU pick whichever one inspires you the most! :)

    xo tiffany

    ps: you have some mail coming your way from me!! i got your love letter :)

  7. i have always loved the song "que seras seras - whatever will be will be"
    or "don't let your dreams be dreams"

  8. What a great idea - my favourite quote is "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars". Not sure how well it'd go on a note though?

  9. This is GORGEOUS! What a treasure!

    This come from a documentary one of my students made last year. It was an interview with his terminally ill grandad and when he spoke about his wife he said: "She turned my life around, I turned hers on its head."
    So I love this idea: "You turned my life around, I turned yours on its head"

    I just think it is the sweetest thing. I tear up every time.

  10. congrats on getting 100 followers!! :):) i really love reading your blog, and i'm sure many do too! :D:D

    i dont really have a favourite quote! but i really like this line from a song in the disney princess movie, Cinderella...

    "a dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep"

    szu an

  11. Congrats, my dear!

    My fave quote is: "Every night I cut out my heart. But in the morning it was full again. “ - The English Patient


    “If I got ride of my demons, I’d lose my angels.”
    - Tennessee Williams

  14. OH MY GOSH!!!
    this is so incredibly sweet!
    and wonderful!
    i can't believe you can just whip them up like that! you are so talented!

    and i love this carrie bradshaw quote.. it might be too long though...
    "As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going.”

    haha i love it but its long. i also love "and i say to my heart, rave on"

    p.s. it won't be long till you have 1000 followers!!

  15. Congrats on making 100!

    I just wanted to pop over and thank you for entering the giveaway for my Karma Cards on the Much Love blog. We've got a few sets left if you're still keen (cough, shameless self-promotion, cough) ;D

  16. Congrats on 100 followers!

    "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be"- my favorite quote from President Lincoln <3

  17. such a great blog..very interesting..
    and it's really nice way to appreciate your follower
    congrats! :)

    "I don't wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone."
    — Javan (Something to Someone)

    thank u so :)

  18. OH GOODNESS, THE BEST GIVEAWAY EVER!!!!! you are sooo thoughtful tillie!!! just plain lovely!!!

    "all that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost."


  19. Is it too late for me to join this uber-cool thing? I hope not.

    I've followed you since I know that there's a marvelous blog like yours, and let's jump to the quotes;

    'What goes around shall comes around'

    I agree with those words cause whenever you give good things to other people, you'll get good things too. But if you give the bad things, no offense if you get the bad things from the others. Just like the 'give and take' law.

    And congrats for having 50 more people in your followers list just in a few days. You really deserve it!


  20. Ooh YAY 100 followers! And oh my goodness what a doll, making up notecards like that?! You're truly a shining star of the blogosphere :)

    My favourite is's an altered quote from a Rilke poem.

    "Oh, the bold exploits of our high flying hearts!"

    I love it.

    Here's to 100 more followers :) xoxo

  21. what a neat idea!

    i love this one:

    Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.

  22. congrats on 100 followers and i'm sure you'll get 100 more in no time!! you are sooo absolutely sweet for doing this!! i've been thinking about a quote for the past few days and i've narrowed it down to two favorites and i can't decide... so i will just let you decide which one inspires you more, hope that is OK!

    the first one is my dr. seuss:
    "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."


    the second one is:
    "Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away."

    I think that both of these just speak volumes! Thanks again for doing this sweetheart!!
