To everyone else...thank you for playing along. Especially if you have been playing along for awhile now and never seem to take home the prize. As you may know, this aspect of a giveaway actually haunts me. I picture slumped shoulders, dejected expressions, ruined lives.
Well, perhaps not ruined lives. But lives which will never be quite what they might have otherwise been...surely that much can be said!
Which is why, in lieu of the prize, I must wish you something of great consolation. Something which puts a smile on your face, the spring back into your step, and makes you glad you never won the prize after all.
So I wish for you a perfect hiding place. Somewhere magical which is available to you whenever you need it. Somewhere invisible to the rest of the world, but is for you a place of peace and refuge. It is fresh, cozy, comforting, and from a certain vantage point you can look out and see what everyone else is doing.
And sometimes you will discover, with no possible explanation for it, a basket of goodies awaiting you within.
p.s. if you have a moment, Kristen of Marginamia featured Tollipop on her very pretty blog the other day. I think she may be a girl after my own heart.
