The Design Files 2011 Christmas Giveaway goodies!

Can you BELIEVE it’s Christmas in 2 days!?  Jeepers.  Where did the year go!

NOW without gushing too much, I thought it would be appropriate, as this is our final ‘proper’ post for 2011, to just say a rather massive THANKYOU to all you excellent people who read this blog!  You are such an AMAZING amazing bunch and I am just endlessly overwhelmed by your support and loyal readership – thankyou thankyou thankyou!

Thanks also especially to all those who came out and supported our epic TDF Open House event in Melbourne earlier this month – it was a truly beautiful thing to see so many wonderful friendly faces and meet many of you in person, and to feel a real sense of community and likemindedness amongst all of you who read this blog!

NOW just so ya know, next week we will have a little break – I really need one!  But don’t fret, things won’t be completely silent around here. As we did last year, next week we will post the TOP 5 AUSTRALIAN HOMES from 2011, re-visiting 5 of your favourite homes as featured on the blog this year.  Then we’re back again with content as usual on Monday January 2nd 2012!  :)

Now originally we said we would draw the winners of the 2011 Christmas Giveaway on Christmas Day… but that was before I realised Christmas was a Sunday, and anyway… who really opens their laptop on December 25th?

SO instead of waiting til Sunday, we decided to break with tradition today and forgo the usual Friday interview to announce the winners of the TDF 2011 Christmas Giveaway today!!  Yeehah!  We had 2,666 entries (thankyou all who completed the reader survey!) and there are just 20 giveaway winners – the lucky ones are announced below!
