My very first Blogtober Giveaway

I will be giving away one of my brooches for my first Blogtober giveaway. The winner can choose either a lion brooch or a protea flower brooch.

All the brooches began as photographs which I took on family outings. The lion pictures were taken at Taronga Park Zoo. I love the zoo – but I do feel sorry for the animals sometimes. I just tell myself that are very well looked after and safe from predators. A lazy but nice life. Soon I will take my little grandson, Matthew, who is now 18 months old. I still remember my son’s first visit to the zoo- he was a tiny baby in a pram and was a little startled when he heard the roar of a lion below! What an experience for him!
The proteas pictures were taken at Mt Tomah in the Blue Mountains, near Sydney. A great place to have a picnic and enjoy peace and quiet. I also got carried away photographing the carnivorous plants – which inspired me later in my painting.
I will draw the winner next Friday. All you have to do is leave a comment. Don’t forget to leave a way for me to contact you. There is a link to my email to the right.

I should also report on the outcome of my fitness resolution yesterday. I didn’t actually get to pilates or the treadmill- the temptation to mind my grandson was too great. Nevermind, I will go to the pilates class tonight.
