Competition winner and an Easter update!


First, I’d like to thank all of you who entered the Taxco Traditions Hand Crafted Sterling Silver bangle competition that featured in my blog. I know that Dominique loved reading your comments and congratulations go to Laura Harris from Hampshire, who was chosen by the ‘randomiser’ as our lucky winner. If you weren’t lucky this time around, I plan to run more competitions on my blog throughout the year, so please keep your eyes peeled!

Ellie and Toby

As for right now there is not much to report from home; Ellie and Toby continue to attract some lovely comments from you all, for which I thank you. I am aware that I do feature them heavily in my blog but I am constantly reminded by viewers that reading the stories or viewing pictures and videos of them, provides an innocent, light relief from stories in the news and brings pleasure to those who – for whatever reason – can no longer keep their own pets. For that reason alone, I’ll keep them included in my weekly ramblings.

Attention all gardeners!

Expanding hose

On Saturday night, I’ll be launching a new TSV with my pal Richard Jackson in his Easter Garden show. It’s the amazing 100ft Stretch Hose, which takes the frustrations out of gardening and outdoor watering, including car cleaning for any car-lovers!

With its innovative design, the Stretch Hose can expand up to three times its contracted length when used and within seconds retracts to its original, super light-weight, compact shape. And with an 8-way spray nozzle and adapter, you can start watering straight away! Of course we have a great offer price for the day and, better still, I believe it will be on 3 Easy Payments 🙂

In the show, we’ll also be featuring Richard’s amazing Flower Power Plant Food, his Premium Multi-Purpose Compost  and his highly effective Weed Killer  – as well as flowers from Mont Rose of Guernsey.

Hope you can join us.

For those of you celebrating Easter, I wish you a very pleasant weekend and hope you can join me at some point during it! To all, I wish you a very pleasant break and hope not toooo much chocolate is consumed!

Stay well, warm and satiated

    Hi Dale
    Yes your dogs are gorgeous and as a dog lover (I have 2 german shepherds) it’s so nice to see the QVC presenters pets.
    Dale i just wanted to ask if you are still doing the Jewellery programmes on QVC and if so would it be possible to have the sterling silver flexi bangle (628000) that you did on a TSV but with different precious stones i.e. swiss blue topaz etc as I get so much wear out of my London blue topaz one.
