The winners!

Thanks to all who entered this giveaway. I hate it that everyone can't get a prize, I'd really love to be ordering 14 copies of the book to be sent to corners of the world.
And apologies for the delay in announcing the results - we had some unexpected visitors yesterday and today - a lovely surprise!

Back to results ... last time I had a giveaway, I used, but I'm a fuddy duddy old-fashioned person, and when I saw this idea on a website, I knew this was my way to go...

here are all the names ready to go in the magic teapot,

lid on, and give it a little shake,

This is much prettier than!

Then draw out the first winner...

First out was Zuzana, whose blog Life Through reflections has beautiful words and photos, from Denmark.

followed by Amy from The Green Bathtub,

Amy blogs from Smalltown, USA.

And blogger seems to have a mind of its own tonight, and has spread this post out more than I intended, so if you've a sore finger from scrolling, I'm sorry about that too.

Now I have to organise myself and get those books ordered.


  1. Even though I didn't win you made it happen in such an elegant way. Yes, a magic teapot is so much nicer than a bit of computer programming - any day of the week.

  2. Well done Zuzana! What a lovely way to juggle the names, Mimi in that pretty pot!

    Nuts in May

  3. Stephanie and Maggie May - I love that teapot too! It belonged to my Mum, and I use it whenever I make a pot of tea, like for weekend breakfasts, or visitors.
    Thanks for the comments, and I really do wish that I would be sending you both a book too. It I win the Lotto, I will send them!

  4. I didn't win but still it was fun to see my name on the card LOL. Congrats to the winners!

  5. Mimi,

    How sweet of you to do that!

  6. Oh my goodness, I won! I NEVER win anything.;)) Honest to god, I have no luck in games or lottery, so this was a lovely surprise. I am truly looking forward to recieve a copy of that intriguing book.;)
    Thnak you my dear Mimi and have a Happy Halloween,

  7. Oh my gosh, I'm a winner! Thanks so much, Mimi!! I am so, so, so thrilled!! (Am I using enough exclamation points?)

    Thank you, thank you. I am so excited to read this book. :) And I really like your handwriting, by the way.


  8. hehe only the best people have magic teapots ;-)
