Hi there. Just a quick reminder that my giveaway is drawn next weekend with a closing date of 8.00am Sunday 3 May (New Zealand time). I will post the results some time on Sunday.
I have decided there will be two prizes. Quite a few people have expressed a desire to be in the giveaway but have not suggested a name for Toad. The winner of the main prize will be the person who has suggested the name I choose to use for Toad - so please keep the names coming in. You can suggest more than one name. There will also be a second prize drawn from the names of anyone who has made a comment whether they have given a name for Toad or not. So if you want to enter the giveaway but have not been able to think of a name for Toad please comment that you would like to be included in the giveaway. The only condition of the giveaway is to be a follower of my blog.
As for toad - he is still only a head!
The rest of his body will have to wait until I have made a few more things for his stall so the winners of the giveaway have something to choose from.
I have made a few additions to the stall items:
Little toadstool pennant string.
A couple of chairs ready for planting and planters.
A couple of little wall plaques.
A chair in progress as well as Jane's gorgeous hutch that started it all.
A toadstool stool, planted small hollowed out pumpkin, large hollowed out pumpkin still to be planted.
I have started giving Toad's cart a bit of a battering. He uses the cart to collect bits and pieces from abandoned cabins on the edge of the woodland to make items for his stall.
A general view of the cardboard mock-up of Toad's stall. I have decide it does need a bit of frontage for landscaping so have added a foam core base.
Anyway, that is where things are with Toad's Stall. I need to spend the rest of the afternoon making some toadstools and fungi so I can make some more things. Toad is getting very excited (he would jump up and down if he had a body). He can't wait to open his stall and in the meantime he is looking forward to next weekend's giveaway draw.
See you next weekend.
