Name Our Owl Giveaway!!!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.  ANOTHER ONE WILL BE HAPPENING SOON!!!

So what would you name this guy? 



Well, if you win him, you can name him whatever you want!

We're giving away our chunky, hunky Owl Doorstop!


He measures 8 inches high and is made from 100% cotton, weighted with sand and has polyester fiberfill stuffing.  He's built like a tank with a weighted bottom, so he's not going anywhere!  I hope that he doesn't cost a fortune to mail to the winner!  His eyes and beak are stitched on in a way that's really cool and add texture.  He gets along quite well with this crazy bunch from This Thing Called Family.


To enter, listen carefully:


Leave ONE comment - and tell us what you would name this owl.  Your comment will not be visible until we've approved it.  Be sure to leave a way to contact you.


*But WAIT!!!

IF in your ONE comment you ALSO tell us that you facebooked or tweeted about our giveaway, I will personally throw in an extra handmade Things With Wings surprise!!!!  I even promise you you'll love it, or at least really, really like it. 

Remember, only ONE comment per person.  BUT you could also get a lil sumpin'-sumpin' extra for spreading the word about our giveaway!  If you don't feel like sharing the news, or aren't a facebooker or twitter-er (tweeter?) that's OK, you'll still win the doorstop....  You'll just always have to wonder what that extra Things with Wings thing could have been.... 

To make it super quick and easy, cut and paste this, including the link:
Things With Wings is giving away their owl doorstop - just for giving the owl a name!!  Enter here: http://thingswithwingsartjournal.blogspot.com

This is going to be a quick one!  We will choose a winner tomorrow- on Friday, April 29 at 10 pm.

*please understand that due to the weight of this item, this giveaway is open to US residents only please!

  9. Eli thinks it's a parrot, so we'd probably name him Parrot.

    Also - I am not a facebooker, but I did put a link on my blog. So maybe this will qualify me for half an extra "something something?" Maybe just a "something??"
