A drum roll please for the Christmas Give-Away!!

Well here we are then, the time has come to make the prize draw, the names are in the hat and some more than once , all legal and honest and no slight of hand...everyone ready.. no pushing at the back!..Firstly may I just say that I have really enjoyed doing this so Thank You ElizabethD for encouraging me to join in and meet lots of new interesting bloggers whom I might have never met otherwise. Thank you too to each one of you who entered and made such kind comments about my work, they are much appreciated.

Alright its not really a hat but Brigitte here was not willing to donate her hat and insisted she hold the basket instead as it matches her hair...vain creature...

Widdle, one of our cats, decided he'd help and act as ajudicator just to make sure everything was above board. Here he is checking all the names against the list of entrants in case I have forgotten anyone.

He wanted to take the names out of the bag too but, being a little lacking in poseable thumbs as he is, I thought I had better get a human to do that....

And the winner of my Glazed Expression Christmas Give-Away draw is.....oops sorry dropped the paper.... now where are my reading glasses? You'd think I could read my own hand writing wouldn't you.. sorry, as I was saying the winner is....are you sure you want to do this? You wouldn't like a nice cup of tea or something instead? Or something stronger? No? oh well if you are sure then lets get on with it.

The winner is... or should I say are ...

Jan and Tom from Jan and Tom's Place ( Well done you...!

Oh look do stop looking so miserable not everyone can win everytime. Oh now stop it at once I hate grumpy faces... go on then, I shall be kind and draw a few more Christmas Give Aways as well to get you all in the holiday spirit ( I know its months away yet but as I said before some of us have to plan early!)

Here we are then another drum roll but smaller this time..3 small give aways just because I hate dissapointing people... and the first ones goes to Fennie ( do read Fennies very funny blogs and thank you Fennie I see you have linked to my glazed Expressions that was very kind.. .. Carolien who does the most amazing stitching see finally but not least to Debbie of Debbies English Treasures who has a real conrucopia of floral china on her new website and blog

Now if all you lucky winners would like to email me with your postal address and your real names so I can send your giftees to you I will pop them in the post on monday..sorry to those who didn't win this time but if you are interested in anything that you see on this blog but you don't see on my website then email me and I will be happy to let you know prices and details.

I am really sorry I couldnt give everyone who entered a little something....perhaps I will do another one later to make up for it. I do love giving things away..Any if any of you haven't tried Give Aways on your blog then I hope you will soon. Its great fun !

Must go now as I have some very important parcels to prepare! I haven't taken photos of the prizes as I do not want to spoil the surprise but hope the winners will be kind enough to display their well earned gains on their blogs so everyone can see them when they arrive.

Have a good weekend!

Frances said...

Un peu, you have run such a fine contest. (Why is it that I think that this past week or two might have made me forget to enter?)

My grand mistake!

Anyhow, I did want to compliment you yet again on your style and humor!


Carolien said...

Hello UPL,

Lucky me! I won something and am very happy!!! I did send you an email yesterday with my name etc.

Have a great weekend & greetings, Carolien

CAMILLA said...

Many many FELICITATIONS to you all.

Wonderful post Un Peu to choosing the winners.

Tiddles.... er um, reason behind this name, love it actually, think I know why.

A big congratulations to the winners. They are very lucky bunnies.

Love the picture of Widdle looking at the papers.

Pondside said...

Lucky ducks!!! Now that I have adjusted to the disappointment of not winning, I'd like to graciously express my best wishes to the winners (should have been ME!!!) -oops, I really do mean, graciously!! :)

Fennie said...

I am not sure how I came to be entered in this and am totally amazed to be a winner (even de deuxieme classe). I think ElizabethD had something to do with it - or was it Loic? Anyway I shall email you just in case you've mislaid my address. Or Widdle has eaten it. Widdle? Isn't that demeaning for a cat - not her real name surely. I think she looks more of a Baltimore. Thanks for the most lovely blog plug.

Doris said...

Oh well. I am a Janzen and we never win so I am not too disappointed because I never expected to win. How is that for a good attitude!
Thanks anyway.

Carolien said...

Today your giveaway arrived by post. And thank you so much!!!!! Your cute angel is hanging on our bookshelf already and ... what a perfect gift indeed, this little black Christmas cat. You couldn't have chosen a better one! Our cat Fietje agrees fully with this. We all love it and will give it a prominent place in the house during Christmas time (which lasts long in our house :). We will treasure your presents, that's for sure. You will see pictures of them on my blog very soon ...

Have a nice weekend & thanks again!
Greetings from Holland, Carolien

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Thank you for the lovely ornaments and everything!!! They're beautiful.

Sorry I haven't written before now...but the same afternoon that I received the package from you, I was hit, run down and run over by a neighbor driving a riding lawnmower. See my ER posts here:
