The winning ticket

Hello all, and happy first whole week of October! Sun shines here (chilly it is but never mind), and it is the time to reveal my fingerless mittens giveaway-winner. I was planning to use an adorable model of 2yrs to pick up the winner, but my to-do-list for today did not allow it. I really wanted to get the winner out asap, and it is getting dark here already, so not-so-adorable 42 ageless model (read: me) picked up the winner, and while having the camera on the other hand... Well I got the job done with just a little shaky result and here we go:


All in to a Moomins jar (please ignore the biscuit crumbs, I had eat the last cookies so I could use the jar), and some shake-it-shake-it...


...and the picket-y-pick:


... It's Jane from Jane's Journal, hip hooray! And once I was in a picking-mood, I wanted to pick an another too for little something surprise so here I went:


... it's Andrea! Yippee! So Jane & Andrea, I will be in touch really soon, and will ship Jane's mittens & little something to Andrea during next a few days.


Thank you so so much all of you who participated, and happy Monday! See you here soon again!

Yours,
Mia

October


 - Oh my, Sorry-oo, the storm is rising! It will be this October's first. I really wish no one is sailing there today...


Too-Tickyyyyy...
-Did you hear something, Sorry-oo, was someone calling me?
- Too-Tickyyyyy...


- Mamma! It was you! Is something wrong, you seem worried? 
- Have you seen any boats lately, Pappa is sailing there, and it has been awfully long...


- No, but I am sure he is alright. Let's wait here, I am sure he will come soon.


- Hey, is that his boat now? It looks familiar...Oh yes, that is him! Pappa, are you alright?


- But of course, dear! I am an old sailor, little storm like that can't stop me...


- Smoooooch!


- Oh, but I almost forgot! The reason I went out there in a first place! Let me get something from the boat...


- I saw a bottle in the sea this morning, and thought it might be something important! It sure took me a while to catch it, the waves were getting bigger by the minute. But let's see now...


- Mumble, mumble, mumble...
- But Pappa, what does it say?
- See, I was right, it was pretty important:


...

Happy October everyone! And just a happy reminder here, that my little giveaway is still on until October 5th. Wishing you all a lovely weekend soon too, and we really have a storm coming, so I am going to stay warm and cozy (and indoors), and you too: take care!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. A special thank you for M for that wonderful storm-card, that was my first inspiration. And not to forger Tove Jansson's Moomins, they never fail to inspire, wish you know them already? If not, here you can get started, happy reading!
