My funny eye turns 1 = Giveaway




My oh my, time flies when you're having fun! It's my blog's first birthday today and there's only one way to celebrate: a GIVEAWAY! One of you lovely people will win a snood that I just put the finishing touches to yesterday, and all you have to to do is leave a comment here between now and 12 noon on Monday GMT. It would be really nice to know where you're reading from, but it's not a must, I just thought it'd be nice to know a little bit more about you :) I will announce the lucky winner next week.

I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by in the past 12 months, I've had a lovely year of getting to know so many of you and I'm looking forward to many more years of fun in this space. Your words of encouragement and appreciation means a lot to me, I really can't thank you enough! Good luck with the draw and have a wonderful Wednesday!

  58. Happy birthday to your funny eye! I am a big follower to your blog from New York. I recently took my first trip to London because I was amazed by the pictures you took there. And it turned out to be one of the greatest trips I had. I even went to Tate Modern and took a similar shot like yours. If you read my blog, you'll see that I made a tribute to your photos. Keep up the good works!

  61. Tillykke!!
    When I want to take a break from studying and rest my eyes on something visually both soothing and nurturing, I often turn to your blog.

    Where am I reading from: though I'm originally Danish, I've lived so long in Holland that I felt I should become Dutch. If only to get the right to vote. In my spare spare time, I like to knit, watch, read, listen, cuddle the cats etc. (as every librarian worth his/her salt would do).

    ReplyDelete
  62. Gee!!! 61 comments!! I guess the give away promise really works! ;-) I come by your blog everyday and really enjoy it…I just like the way you see and capture things. And…I am a great cat lover. That is pretty cats lover. And little Mo surely is a beauty. So… congrats for your first year of blogging and keep it going!!! Oh, I forgot, I live in Paris, France and I'm half french, half german. Oh…and more thing, I got inspired by your Clarks shoes, and I am thinking of buying them in grey…so thank you for all your inspiration!

    I am reading from italy
    and I follow your blog
    since you posted this picture on your flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/25995140@N00/2762813201/
    when I saw it I became addicted to your funny eye…

    a friend of mine has a flickr page too
    and I check it to have news about her
    and the beautiful monsters she creates
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/ninon_taniapat/
    then I started looking at her favourites page
    and found “sandra juto” and/or “fine little day”
    and/or “little birds” …
    I have to thank them because looking at their favs
    I found you!
    to wish you a happy blog birthday
    I would like to give you a little present,
    I would like to introduce you to JPG MAGZINE,
    a wonderful and challenging website
    and a well printed magazine made by
    funny eyed people all over the world:
