One World One Heart

I read about this on Kathy's blog, and for a split second I thought "Shall I take part?" and then instantly dismissed it, thinking "Nah, I can't be bothered!" Well, now I've decided that, yes, actually I can be bothered! Kathy has inspired me! And I hope to win her wonderful print that is up for grabs!

So, Welcome! Welcome to everyone who is here to take part in this wonderful competition which is designed to bring bloggers from around the world together. Not literally, but, you know, bloggerally.

Now hang on, I don't want to leave out anything important. First I need to display the logo...


You can click the image above to find out all the details you need to take part.

Umm... what next... (quickly refering back to the page linked to above)... oh yes, of course, the GIVE-AWAY ITEM!! After much deliberation I have decided to give away... (drum roll) these tiles, never before seen by blogging eyes!!

They measure approx. 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches, and about a 1/4 of an inch deep. They are ceramic tiles, decorated with coloured slips and sgrafitto, and glazed with clear glaze. (The Pig one also has some pink glaze on it) On the back they are signed LD 2009.

Here is what you need to do if you would like to win this pair of tiles:

1. You must leave a comment on this post with a link back to your blog or your email address so that I can inform you if you win.
2. The closing time for entry will be 9am UK time on the 15th February (you may just sneak in a little later if I'm not out of bed yet!) and I will be announcing the winner later that day.
3. Also, you must jump through a hoola hoop... oh wait, no, it says NOT to make people jump through hoops, so scrap that :)

And that's it! Mention in your comment if you have a give away too, and I will visit your blog. (That's not to say that I won't visit your blog if you don't have a give away, or that you even have to have a blog, but it helps) :) No, I don't mean that! I'm joking! The winner will be picked completely at random from a hat (if I can find one) or a bowl.

Thank you for looking, and please call again :)
