it's me, on the podium!

Yes, I'm the winner. It's a big day here in Pretty Far West: the postman has brought my very first giveaway prize, and a timely one after I was grumbling that I had never won any giveaways despite having already entered two.

These pretty little birds are courtesy of Cox and Cox via Her Little Place. Thanks, Huma; I like them a lot! The gin is the model's own.

Now I'm on to a winning streak, please drop everything and email me or leave a comment the very second you hear of any new giveaways. DON'T enter them yourself, as you're only diluting my chances. I've cleared a shelf especially.


  1. Congratulations! They are lovely creatures. I too am notoriously bad at receiving giveaways, but I did win a DVD ("Waveriders") from recently, just for posting a comment. Unfortunately it's too late to enter that giveaway, but I'll let you know if I hear of another. Maybe.

  2. What a gorgeous blog! I'm glad I was let to you. Now I'm a subscriber and I look forward to reading more.

    Thanks for the visit,

  3. Congratulations on your big win! Those birds are just adorable.

  4. Ahh, they're so cute - congratulations!

    And - finally - I find a fellow blogger who appreciates the importance of Bombay Sapphire.

    Once you've tried it, you just can't go back to Gordons. Glug glug glug.

  5. It's true, Serena, nothing but the Bombay Sapphire will do, and the pale blue bottles are much prettier than Cork Dry.

    Stan, I'll hold you to that.

  6. How fun! Congrats! The birds are adorable :)

  7. Well done you!
    Have you done the 'Two little dickie birds, sitting on a wall' nursery rhyme with them yet??!!

  8. Yes, G., absolutely! One daughter has Peter, the other has Paul.

  9. Congrats, Mise! And what a lovely prize to win. I'd like a little bird like that for my bottle of Bombay Sapphire. Whatever home you find for them, enjoy!

  10. aw, i'm glad you love them! x


You're looking particularly well.
