...for a mad give-away!
No reason, just because we can.
Rules? We would like to see a picture of your favourite gnome(s). Or a funny picture of the same. Or a unique gnome. Really, just entertain us with a gnome picture. Either send it to us via the email to the right. Or post it on your blog and send us the link either via email or in a comment in this post.
All readers and gnomes of this world are welcome!No, these gnomes are not part of the give-away. They are my nephews - all dressed up to go to the Oktoberfest. Yes, we train them young.
Deadline? Hmm... How about until the end of June. This should give you plenty of time to send in your pictures.
1 Kiva gift certificate. Inspired by Taurus Rising, I would like to share the goodness. Make a loan of your choice with a Kiva gift certificate.
1 brand-new copy of The Silver Spoon. The Italian cook's bible. It's a magnificent collection of Italian recipes. For some strange reason we have a spare copy of it here. However, it is the American edition, therefore in 'funny' measurements. Unfortunately, it is a heavy tome and the postage to send it overseas would be a bit steep. So this prize is only for readers in Australia. Sorry.
1 pre-loved copy of Marcella's Kitchen. Marcella Hazan's book of classic Italian cooking. It may be pre-loved but it is in pretty good nick. The book offers great Italian recipes! Again, for some strange reason, we have a spare copy of this invaluable Italian cookbook.
1 assortment of organic, open-pollinated vegetable and herb seeds. This should keep you busy in the garden. Or great as a starter pack for someone who would love to get started with growing veggies and herbs from seeds.
Heirloom tomatoes, capsicums, basil, chillies, lettuce, pumpkins, asparagus, beetroot, cucumbers, eggplants, etc... Can be selected according to growing conditions and/or likes & dislikes of the winner.
The Kiva certificate and Marcella book are for everyone - wherever you may be. The seed assortment is open to everyone, too, but please be aware there might be countries that prohibit the importation of certain seeds. So if you live in such a country, please let me know and I can leave out the 'offending' seeds.
So. Send in the gnomes! Don't be shy! Even if you have never ever posted a comment here or anywhere. Go for it! :)
