A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

150 Follower Choose Your Own Giveaway!

To celebrate reaching the colosall total of 150 fabulous followers, I'm offering not one but two giveaway prizes! 

Prize One: Magical

 Prize one consists of a "mad stack" of books, a pair of dragon eggs and a small selection of mushrooms.  The books have real leather covers and are glued together.  If you would rather use the books separately, they should pop apart without too much difficulty.

Prize Two: Lady's Selection

Prize option two consists of an elegant hat, three crystal perfume bottles and a floor rug.  The stool is not included.  The hat can either be displayed on a stand or worn by a doll.  Martha insisted on showing you how the hat would look on and you can see her modelling it in the photos below.

 Entering the givaway is easy, just do the following:

1. Be a follower of this blog
2. Leave a comment on this post and state your preferred prize (Prize 1:Magical, Prize 2:Lady's Selection or you can ask to be included for both prizes).

Entries close on 30th April 2012 and the winners will be drawn on 2nd May.  Each prize will be drawn separately, therefore if you enter stating you would like to win either prize, you effectively get two chances to win.  If you fail to state your preferrence I will randomly assign you to one or the other before I conduct the draw.

Good Luck and Thank You for following!
