Thank You, Tanya

I was thrilled to bits a few weeks ago when I found out that I was one of the top commenters on Tanya's Lovely Greens blog. It was a year since Tanya had started her blog, so she decided to count up the comments each person had left over the year and send a thank you gift to the people who had left the most. The gift was a jar of Tanya's Manx Beeswax Lip Balm. Tanya makes this product herself using local Manx beeswax. I've been using it a few weeks now and can say that it's lovely stuff, it's doing it's job of keeping my lips silky smooth.

Tanya has just set up her own hive of bees, so she's hoping to be able to harvest her own beeswax which she will use in her lip balm. If you haven't yet visited Lovely Greens blog, I would urge you to do so. Tanya's posts are on a variety of subjects from her allotment to the new hive she's just set up. She's also just about to start keeping chickens so I'm looking forward to reading all about them.

If you're interested in the lip balm yourself, Tanya sells this in her Etsy shop, along with various scented soaps which she also makes herself. You can also find further information about the product there.

Thank you very much, Tanya, I'm really enjoying using the lip balm.


  1. I've got some of that too! ;)
    It's lovely isn't it? I can't wait for Tanya to have her own Beeswax to make it. Mo

  2. Counting comments by individuals seem to me an onerous task - unless there is a short cut way. That's two of us to recieve a gify from a fellow blogger. It's lovely isn't it?

  3. Thank you for this post Jo - I'm so pleased you like the lip balm :) Xx

  4. And yes was a mission to count them up! ;)

  5. A lovely and well deserved gift Jo. Don't think that I have visited Tanya before so will have to stop by :)

  6. Garden Bloggers are great, aren't they? And you are one of the best, Jo, so you deserved your gift. I always enjoy being introduced to new blogs, so thanks for this posting -- I look forward to visiting Tanya. P. x

  7. What a lovely gesture from Tanya and may I say deservedly won by yourself Jo.

    Will pop over to Tanya's and take a look. Her lip balm sounds wonderful.

    Great to hear you have been able to get over to the allotment. Your shallots and onions look great!

    The cooler weather this year has really held me back - what a difference from this time last year! Hopefuly it will pick up soon to enable me to continue with my practice of direct sowing.


  8. Hi Jo, What a lovely gesture. I just wanted to say thank you for the pot maker and lovely card which I received the other day. Your kind words made me smile. Best wishes Wellywoman x

  9. Wow, a good idea by Tanya and a lovely gift. My sunroom is filled with seed trays and pots like your greenhouse in your last post! They all seem to be coming up slowly - beans, calendula and kale in the lead.

  10. It's really lovely lip balm, Mo. It will be exciting when Tanya starts to harvest her own beeswax, I'm enjoying reading all about her bees.

    I love getting gifts through the post, Sue, it's so exciting. I wouldn't fancy the job of counting every individual comment.

    You're welcome, Tanya, and thank you once again for the lip balm, I love it. I can imagine it was a mission to count every individual comment.

    Do drop by Tanya's blog, Anna. She writes about a wide range of subjects, all to do with living the good life.

    Thank you for your lovely comment, Pam. Do visit Tanya's blog, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    Thanks, Tanya.

    Thank you, Jeanne. The lip balm really is lovely. I can't see an end to this wet weather at the moment, it's really starting to hold me back now.

    You're welcome, Wellywoman. Thank you for letting me know that the parcel arrived safely.

    All my seeds are very slow to germinate this year, Kelli. Such a difference to last year.
