Contest Winners!

Ginger has chosen the winners, folks!




Actually, although I did try to coax Ginger to pop his paw on a winning name, he tended to sit on them all instead, and then decisions got too much for him, and nap-time called.



Obviously Ginger thinks you are all winners, as you all care about his meal times (a subject very close to his heart, and belly). So I decided to step in - watch the below video for the results, and to hear me wittering!



Hooray the winners! And here are the names if you don't have time to watch the draw above...

First place goes to Music Obsessive. Congratulations! You will be getting the prizes below.



Second prize goes to VR Barkowski. Hooray! You will be getting this lovely bundle below.



Third prize goes to Karen G. Congratulations! The prizes below are yours.




Fourth prize goes to Pen and Paints. Hooray! You will get the goodies below.


Hopefully all the winners have an email address on their blogs as I will be in touch very shortly to tell you the good news. Thank you to everyone who took part - who tweeted, blogged, or put the contest picture of Ginger in your sidebar. It was actually Ginger and Abigail's 11th birthday the other day as well, so this is all good timing! I had a blast doing this contest, and maybe won't wait so long to do another - who knows!

That was so funny watching you pick names. Love the nail polish.

But wait! In that second picture, is that Ginger chewing on my name card? :sigh: I never had a chance. ROTFL!

Great contest, Jayne! Congrats to all the winners!

Congratulations to everyone!

Congratulations to all!

I have to say It didn't surprise me at all that ginger wouldn't pick a name.
What self respecting cat is ever going to do anything but work to his own agenda.

Theresa Milstein said...

Congratulations to the lucky winners. Yay, Karen!

Ginger is so cute.

VR Barkowski said...

Oh, thank you so much, Jayne! It was an amazing contest and I'm so excited to win! Plus, it was tons of fun to watch the names being drawn (adorable bag, btw). And no worries, you pronounced my name perfectly. :)

I'm not surprised Ginger wouldn't cooperate. Cats like to play both sides of the fence unless there's something in it for them.

KarenG said...

Oh I adored the video with your lovely British accent you sound like a movie star. You had a lot of entries crammed into that little bag! So excited I won. Now if only I could talk like you I would be truly ecstatic LOL. Thanks for a great contest.

Mystica said...

Sandy Shin said...

"....and then decisions got too much for him, and nap-time called." - I feel like that most of the time.

Well, I'm completely gobsmacked!
I am not one of those people (oh dear, I can sense the ghost of Dennis Norden hovering) who ever win prizes, so this has taken me completely by surprise. And such a lovely prize as well - no wonder you had so many entries to cram into that little bag. Good choice of table mat as well -Blondie's Greatest Hits - is that a hint at hair colour to go with the nails?

Congrats to the other winners and to everyone who took part.

Great contest (well, I would say that)!

Piedmont Writer said...

Congratulations to all the winners. Ginger makes a lovely Vanna White.

Susan Fields said...

Congrats to the winners! Ginger looks just like my cat. We even considered calling her Ginger, but finally decided on Peanut.

Eliza said...

Congrats to the winners, love he video :-)

Talli Roland said...

Oh, Ginger. Why have you shunned me? I was so supportive; asking Jayne to feed you...

:)

Congrats to the winners!

Kay Richardson said...

God damn! I missed this. I would have called him 'Mr Bitey'.

Kay Richardson said...

What? It wasn't a cat-naming competition? Oh.

Ginger is funny! Love that she sat on all the entries! Too bad you couldn't grow up to be a cat--it's a great dream!

Nice to meet you at Karen's BBQ party.

Ginger looks like a very discerning feline. Cute!
