Would you check out this lovely ribbon swirl marble? Not only is it gorgeous… it’s also the prize in our latest giveaway, and will be won by one lucky reader. Why, I hear you ask? Because Think Tasmania published an article about the World of Marbles recently, and generated a little publicity for their business. This is their way of saying thanks for all the lovely feedback. But Jan and Jo are not only generous, they’re also very clever artists. So they’d like everyone to know about their work.

Marble: Stunning Contemporary Art

The World of Marbles article was part of a series we published recently about Sheffield. In fact, we still have more stories yet to share from that visit. We were based at Eagles Nest Retreat and met quite a few business owners in the region. And now they’ve joined forces to prove just how awesome their region really is.

You may have noticed another article we published earlier this week, giving you the chance to win a night’s accommodation at luxury property Eagles Nest II? Yes… of course you did. And as if these two current opportunities weren’t enough, stay tuned because we’ll have yet another Sheffield-based giveaway to bring you later in the week. It must be Christmas!
