Participating in the One World One – One Heart (OWOH) international blog event recently was a wonderful experience.  I very much enjoyed hosting visitors at Foxy G’s Den of i-KNIT-quity, as well as visiting other blogs.  Imagine my delight when I found out that I had won a giveaway from Lyneen of Dreaming of Castles, a youth ephemera pack:

This “half pound” of paper goodies from 1900 – 1980s is filled with papers from a variety of sources, including two of my favorites – Alice in Wonderland and Ozma in Oz. 

    

Lyneen has enjoyed blogging for several years and features items in her vintage postcard collection. She is a card maker and altered artist and has recently opened a shop on etsy. Take a minute and check out her shop and her blog.

All good things must come to an end, and the One World – One Heart Magic Carpet Ride is over for 2010.   Before we go any further, a very special thank you to Lisa, host/creator of the One World – One Heart event who performed the  monumental task of designing the badge, creating the guidelines and coordinating all the blogs – which must have been a lot like trying to herd cats!

It has been a fun ride visiting people all over the world and welcoming them to Atlanta. I started out offering a scarf as my giveaway.  The response was so great that I added another scarf after 100+ entries.  And, as the saying goes, “If you crochet it, they will come!”  So, I added a third scarf.  To make it as fair for the people who signed up on the last day as on the first day, I chose one winner from each 100+ entries.  Without further ado:

The winner of the purple and pink ruffle scarf that was hand crocheted by my almost 91-year-old mammalicious is: Carapace.

The winner of the red and navy ruffle scarf also hand crocheted by the same mammalicious is: Theresa of Faerie Moon Creations.

And the winner of the camel/tan ruffle scarf blah – blah – blah is: Janice of Enchanted Quilling.

One World One Heart Giveaway

I wish that each of you who entered could have won.  What I would like to do is offer you 10% off all items in my shop (excluding shipping)  through February 28th.  If you will put OWOH in the message to seller, I will refund the 10% after your payment is completed.

Until we meet again, goodbye, farewell,  so long, adieu arrivederci, auf wiedersehen, sayonara, shalom.  Y’all come back real soon, ya hear.

One World One Heart – Magic Carpet Ride

One World One Heart BadgeWelcome to Foxy G. Knits Den of i-KNiT-quity, located in Atlanta, GA, Stop #113 on your Magic Carpet Ride.  You will have an opportunity to enter a giveaway in just a few minutes, but first, let me give you a quick tour of Atlanta:

Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola.  Coke is all they drink here, so don’t ask for any other soft drink unless it’s made by Coca-Cola.  Even if you want something other than a Coca-Cola, it’s still called Coke.

  • Our 8 AM rush hour runs from 6:30 to 10:30 a.m., and our 5 PM rush hour runs from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. Friday’s rush hour begins on Thursday afternoon and lasts through 2 a.m. on Saturday.
  • “Fixinto” is one word: I’m fixinto go to the store.
  • Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals, and you begin drinking it when you’re two years old.
  • “Jeet?” is actually a phrase meaning “Did you eat?”
  • No need to buy a ladder or mattress in Atlanta.  Just go to one of the Interstates, and you will soon find one in the middle of the road.
  • The falling of one raindrop causes all drivers to immediately forget all traffic rules.  If a single snowflake falls, the city is paralyzed for three days, and it’s on all the channels as a news flash every 15 minutes for a week.  Overnight, all grocery stores will be sold out of milk, bread, bottled water, toilet paper and beer.
  • If you have ever had the pleasure of having to change planes here in Atlanta, then you know that the gates at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are about 32 miles away from the main concourse.  So wear sneakers, and pack a lunch.

Well, thanks for taking a little tour of our fair city.   Now for the giveaway…I want to be sure that you are warm enough, as well as stunning, on the rest of your magic carpet ride, so please feel free to enter to win this Luscious Lavender Wide Ruffle Scarf.  It was hand crocheted with love by my 90 ½ year old mammalicious.

Lavender Scarf Giveaway 

This Magic Carpet Ride has become dizzifying.   (And if that’s not in your Funk & Wagnell, I just made it up!)  There has been such a wonderful response, that I am adding a second giveaway – another large ruffle scarf hand crocheted by mamalicious.  This one is red and purple:
