hoot, hoot... but what can this be?

A Giveaway!!

Act 1
Scene 4
A wooded glen with little fuzzy critters nibbling on small and fragrant blossoms of white poking up through the new fallen snow.
Enter Marguerite with whimsical expression, a little owl perched on her shoulder and her usual following of birds...

Marguerite: Alas... Here is the place where in due course I must part with thee dear Patsy.
My heart... it does so ache at the very thought. Yet I know it shall be for the good of all. O! What joy you shall bring to the lucky winner of the giveaway! Your sweet song and gentle ways would encourage even the hardest heart to swoon! O that I were that fortuitous winner that I might have you! Alas... that individual is not myself but another.... And who shall it be? Someone who is more deserved than I. They shall be all courage and honor and...

Enter Aimee and Genevieve with noses pointed toward the sky in lofty disdain.

Aimee: Peace good sister... Have we not heard you from miles away that you should carry on so?

Genevieve: Indeed!

Marguerite: Then what would you have my sisters? A ballad instead? A stanza? Or perhaps an excerpt from Lear or Hamlet for a more dramatic take...

Genevieve: For soothe... be still and listen to the wisdom that we bring forth.

Aimee: Yes, 'tis true dear fellows that this is the time of the wonder that shall be the giveaway.
You must follow these rules in order to be privy to this great ordeal.

Genevieve: They are as follows -

Leave a comment with-
1. Your name
2. A way we can contact you if you are that lucky winner
3. Your favorite kind of cheese
4. and Put a link to this giveaway on your blog (only if you so desire), to get one extra chance to win! Then let us know!

The Giveaway will end on New Years Day. So hurry and sign up!
This is Patsy. A genuine "Wolly Pop" made (with love) by Marguerite of Pretty Wit.
In these pictures she is posed as a Christmas ornament but could also be used as a key chain, a rear view mirror decoration or just a little friend for when you need cheering up. =]
She is about 3 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches wide made of embossed and flat felt, red embroidery thread and stuffed with eco-snow (an environmentally friendly alternative to polyester).
Also, has a $15.00 value!!

If you would like to see more Wolly Pops, please visit our etsy shop at:

With sincerest regards...
Marguerite, Genevieve and Aimee

All wrapped up

Announcing the Winner!

Act I
Scene III
Some Abandoned Cave
Enter Genevieve, Marguerite, Aimee and a Silly Hat with much Pomp and Circumstance into the dark, damp interior. With white faces and hair disheveled.

Marguerite: Alas! An Abandoned Cave! Methinks those blood thirsty turkey's will not find us here!

Genevieve: Yes, we have arrived. That was rather harrowing I must say! How gloomy 'tis! We must have some light! Where ARE those stage hands when you need them? Oh well, Aiiimeeeeee! You must procure us some glimmering lights so that we may better read the name of our Winner of the Giveaway of Wonder!

Aimee (to the audience): What ho? How many Shakespeareans does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Genevieve: Friend, I fear these good people will not wish to hear your railings. Peace!

Marguerite: Methinks there ist no place for a light bulb in this cavern of woe.

Aimee: Not a place of woe but a haven of rejoicing and prizes!!

Genevieve: Aha! Which brings us to the point of this propitious post...we are to announce the winner of our very first giveaway ever!!!! So without further ado, well, as much as we can do without ado. Or should I say...with all that previous ado, we give you the winner!

(drum roll accompanied by majestic trumpets, singing of exotic birds, wood nymphs' dancing feet and bleatings of woolly sheep)

In unison (with dramatic pauses for effect): Wait, we will show to you the hat the famous hat that held all your ravishing names. We stowed all your names in this silly top hat.

Marguerite: Then we cast a spell over the hat to protect it from the cheating curse so that the evil munchkins of Cheatersland would not prosper.

Genevieve: Oh dear, silly child. She's always had a flair for the dramatic. I really think you live in an altogether different society than we. She's cast most often in strange and foreign roles. Dracula...Pirate....Lily Maid.

Aimee: We drew in a breath to the fullest inflation of our lungs and drew out the fateful piece of parchment.
Collectively exhale and exclaim with imperfect timing: Anna Kristine!

Yea, dear friends, she is the chosen recipient of the Evenstar bracelet! Thank you so much Anna for signing up and sending all your dear friends and fans to our giveaway!

And we thank you all too for signing up! It has been a most gratifying event! In fact we had such a lovely time meeting all of you and reading your funny, intelligent and delightful comments that we plan to have many more Giveaways of Wonder! Please come back and read the script for more chances to audition and win! A very painless way of keeping informed about Giveaways of Wonder is to follow this blog. Just click the "Follow this Blog" button at the top of this page.

Marguerite: I hope you are all excited about Christmas. If not, you will be ushered out the back exit into the dark alley and left alone.

Genevieve: Shun!

Aimee: Off with their heads!

Marguerite: For we are fans of Christmas and have a special surprise flying this way. It would be wise to give audience to this blog in the days ahead. It should be a hoot.

Thank you all for playing!

Scene II
Low hanging clouds of Ambrosia Salad. Enter fool and the three spinsters amongst the falling marshmallows.

Fool: 'Tis time for a giveaway
Yes, today is the day
You need NOT pay
Just leave a comment......

Aimee: Peace fool! That does not rhyme! Now, I do frown on thee with all my heart! And if mine eyes can wound, now let them kill thee!

Marguerite: Yes, merrily, you read right. We are having a giveaway of grandeur! Here is how it will work....

: Hearken to her, for she is wise.....

Marguerite: To enter the giveaway please leave a comment on this post (You do not need to have a blogger account to leave a comment. Just leave an anonymous comment and be sure to include your name and e-mail!).

Be sure to include:
(1) your name
(2) a way for us to get a hold of you (e-mail or link to your blog etc.)
(3) name of the bracelet you will choose if you win
(4) your favorite color
(5) and the name of the person (if any) who directed you to the giveaway.
5 being the number of things to list in your comment. 6 shalt thou not count, neither count thou 4 unless thou then proceedeth to 5! 7 is right out!

Genevieve: Peace good madam, you shall confuse them with your railings! When you comment your name will go in the hat. AND if you tell your friends to comment and they list you as the person who directed them hence, you will get your name put in the hat for each friend who lists you. So in other words, the more people you tell about the giveaway the more chances you have of winning! Yay!

Aimee: The illustrious winner shall receive the bracelet of her choosing that she loves best!

(Left to right) Gypsy Girl, Chocolate Sky or Evenstar
Made by Genevieve
The curtain will fall on this giveaway 12:00 AM PST on November 28th, 2008. We will draw a name from a silly hat and announce the winner later that day.

Fare thee well! Until we meet again in some abandoned cave!
