Snow Globe Giveaway!

There's recently been a Betty Jo giveaway over at Georgie Love (congratulations Amelia for winning foxy!).
BUT, there hasn't been one in the Lino Forest since Valentines Day!
I don't know about you but time is movin' a bit fast for my liking these days. Just where did those four and a bit months go?
So to celebrate the Antarctic weather we have been having lately and to remind ourselves that it's probably more than ten degrees colder somewhere other than here, I'm offering up a Snow Globe brooch similar to these ones. It will be perfect if you are like me and would now rather see snow swirling around a dome of plastic, than actually go and get amongst it. Mr. BJ has just got back from playing some gigs at Perisher Vally ski resort nursing a badly sprained wrist.
Now get this, he purposely didn't go snow boarding or skiing because he wanted to avoid injuring himself.
But guess who slipped over on the ice as he was walking out the door of the venue?
Anyway, this prize will be custom made for the winner, and you can nominate any Betty Jo snow loving critter to live inside the globe. Furry, feathery or maybe a rabbity pastoral tableaux.
So go on, leave a comment!

  12. Way too cute for words!

    If I won, I would request a wombat in my globe. We have a grumpy wombat that lives under our holiday house in Thredbo. We named him William. He poos everywhere. We love him!

  13. sorry your old man busted his rockstar rear after the gig especially after being so careful AND missing out on snowboarding! :( Sometimes life can be so cruel and ironic!
    A snow globe sounds nice since it's starting to get so warm over here in the states.
    Best of luck to everyone!
    xo!

  21. I reckon a snow globe is the best place for snow - that's why we holiday at the beach rather than the ski fields!! I would love a grey cat in mine.

  24. Look at me, I've learnt to ski,
    Past the bunny and round the tree.
    Flying fast, sudden stumble,
    Lose your balance and down you tumble!

  25. Oh oh oh, seeing our snow leopards at the National Zoo have just had snow delivered to them, have you ever thought of a leopardy snow globe?? Mass appeal for snow globe lovers & leopard print enthusiasts alike!! Love Posie

  32. The kids dropped and cracked my beloved 'snowing in Bethlehem' nativity snow dome last christmas, I think they licked some of the weird snow dome juice that dripped out. I would love one of your much hardier snow dome brooches but hey, I'd love anything made by you!

  33. During summer, Thredbo attracts serious mountain bike racers from all over the world. But when it is winter time and the mountain is covered with snow, it has the got the longest ski runs Australia, where the whole family can have fun together. There are lots of Thredbo accommodation the village offers, and it is up to you what place and amenities suit you and your group best.
