Halloween competition

Halloween is Fab
The colours aren't drab
Take a look at my blog
Theres a cushion up for grabs!

The cushions...
Top row, from left to right ... Starry pumpkin cushion, Halloween stars cushion
Middle row, from left to right... Owl cushion, Witchy pumpkin cushion, Halloween Cat cushion
Bottom row, from left to right... Autumn pumpkin cushion, Smiley pumpkin cushion

If you want to see more pics of these cushions, take a look in my Etsy store by clicking on the link above.

Well as promised, here is the halloween cushion competition. It's just a little bit of halloween fun and the winner will receive one cushion of their choice from the above cushions. I hope loads of you will have a go :0)

Meet Nigel.....

To enter,

  • Find Nigel in my witches corner, if you click on the photo, it should enlarge and he will be easier to find!! Tip, he is hiding, so you may not be able to see all of his body!! Once you have found him, leave me a comment saying where he is.
  • you must be a follower of my blog and add me to your MY BLOG LIST on your blog page (don't worry if you aren't already a follower, just click on the follow blog at the top of the page and add me, then add me to My bloglist in your settings)
  • Then lastly, make up a little rhyme about halloween, like my silly attempt above in orange and send me the answer to where Nigel is and the rhyme in a comment.

    I will then put all the names of those entered in a hat and our little Meg will pick one. I will hold the comments back and publish them with the name and blog address of the winner next thursday, 8th October. The winner can then email me their postage address and let me know which cushion they would like. Easy as that.....I hope!!!


I hope loads of you will have a go, fingers crossed.....

  5. Where oh where? Is Nigel there?
    He must be hiding in the witch's hair?
    Behind the books?
    No, I see him THERE!
    Under the shelf, in the pot
    watching the cat
    and shaking a LOT!

  6. Not sure how I missed this but Im no good with these sort of things so I asked our 7 year old Lola to look and she thinks he is hiding under the bench on the left hand side of the room?

    Heres the poem she made up!!

    'Its Halloween Night and its a Fright
    With Skeleton Bones and Scary Moans
    Magic tea, not for Me!
    Bats and Rats, and lots of Cats!'

    By Lola Whittaker age 8

    Lovley cushions, good luck to everyone Kate xxv

    Don't want a trick, want something to eat.
    Wish Halloween wasn't just one night.
    Then we'd have candy all the time.

    Good luck to everybody

  12. Upps! I have forgotten T my rithms...

    Tiempo de Halloween ha llegado
    fantasmas y brujos por doquier
    duendes y monstruos a tu lado
    harán que te escondas debajo el somier...

    Something similar to...
    Halloween time has arrive
    ghosts and wizards everywhere
    goblins and monsters to your side
    will do that you hide below the sprung bed base...


  13. Wild and windy winds blow
    On Halloween do appear
    Scary costumes come and go
    And grab candy left and right

    Little Nigel is so cute hiding on the shelf in the pumpkin pot.

  16. Hi dales_dreams,
    Welcome to my blog and thankyou for entering my competition. Nigel was under the bench with the cat looking at him, but we had so many people saying he was in the pumpkin that we decided that we had to have 2 Nigels!! one under the bench and the one in the pumpkin, as everyone had taken the time to enter and give me a smile with their fab rhymes.
