I'm not wasting my time here, this better be worth it
I don't do this straw pulling for magnets you know whats you giving away girly?

yeah, okay Wesley, a step up from a magnet this time

I'm giving away* my Deer at Midnight brooch 

like it?

A one-of-a-kind, not-for-shrinking-violets, handmade by me here in Scotland, purdy stag brooch

this cervidae is out in all his sparkle at midnight, amongst the jewels and glamour and glitz
and is excited about sitting on your breast, em, chest, and taking the cool evening air

made from an old Scottish kilt, scraps of ribbon, black faux fur tufts, the end of a shiny bracelet, a sparkly lil' crystal bead and lots of scrappy sewing

 alrighty then, I reckon that's worth a bit of my time

...and some dried carrots and some oatcakes and a piece of your toast and..

  3. So cute! :) Thanks for the chance to win.

  4. Good to see that Wesley is taking his job as name-picker so very seriously. Mr. Mick says he should hold out for as many treats as he can get. :)

    Told my BF, but he was asleep so I'm not sure he heard.

    BFF is also my BF, but I'll save telling him a second time till he's awake.. :)

    I DID tell my Gerbil Freddie and my life size Stitch plushie. (As said in blog ;) )

    Oh, and a bonus, Google+ :

    Phew! Now I best get off and post some oats to Scotland .. for, er, no reason.. ;)

  6. I love this brooch. Quite simply. And I so very much want to wear it on my highland odyssey this summer :) It's just lush!

    I've told this to Stanley and Suki and asked them to spread the word, but I can't be sure they're working for me on this!

    I am just about the FB it! And Tweet it!

    Quite simply this brooch must join my existing hare brooch, and the one reserved for me - I am A Leverets Nest maniac fan...

    :) xx

  7. I wrote a long post of yada yada but it didn't post so here goes again!

    I love this brooch. I. Love. It.
    I love all your brooches. And this guy will go a tasty treat with Mustard Hare. Quite soon I must come back for the reserved fella! I love him already too!

    But back to this guy - I would really love to take him on my scottish odyssey this summer. We're heading back to the highlands and I think he should some how be attached to my kayak! I will post a pic if I win this giveaway ;)

    I have asked Stanley and Suki to spread the word, but I'm not sure whether they work for me or just humour me on this!

    I have FB-ed my joy about this brooch and as soon as I post this I'll be tweeting.

    Please make my month :)
