Come and Claim Your Booty!

It's time to announce the winners of Anne's Epic Giveaway!


Now before I get started, I'd like to announce the winner of the double-triple-secret prize. Now this prize was so secret, even I didn't know about it until later. I got a huge outpouring of support from my friend Mel over at No, Really, You Can Eat It so I'm giving her a special prize.


M&M scented candles! No, Really, You Can't Eat It Mel, but I hope they fill a room with their lovely scent.

So onto the other prizes.

Chasing The Sandman by Brandon Meyers goes to Pickleope.

Zvezda 1/72 Samurai goes to Sean.

Blue Moon WWI figures go to Wargame News And Terrain Blog.

Tom Meier 54mm Highlander goes to Kris.

And finally The O'Leary Girls go to Monty.

The winners need to contact me at: onemadirishwoman@outlook.com so I can get your addresses. This is just a temporary email that will be closed after everyone has received their prizes.

I've had loads of fun doing this, but now I need quiet time to just paint. I'll be taking a break from Blogger until about April 19th. I'll be in to comment today and will post a simple reminder of my absence tomorrow.

Have a good weekend everyone. I know I will.

  1. Congrats to all the winners!

    As for those M&M scented candles, well, telling someone that they absolutely can't eat them is surely daring them to do so ;)

  15. Geez get the cat all used to you being in blog land and now you are running away, that is just rude lol and congrats on the win to all at your bin, even if you cheat and did it before you hit 80,000 at your street haha

    1. If I waited until I hit 80,000 it would be months before I did the draw. Truly the point was to give back as I've won quite a few draws lately.

  16. "They melt in your mouth and not in your hand"; ah!, I see they also melt under the match-interesting...Ann-have you heard about bacon scented candles?

  18. I think I would get a sugar comma just smelling those.

    By the way, did you see my "B" entry?

  19. The O'Leary Girls go to Monty? There's more than one Monty in the blogging world so before I tell the Mrs. to make room for the O'Leary girls, I better make sure it's really me!

    This is too cool!

    1. Yes, it is you! I should have made that clear. I'm still painting them and will do a post and a funny true story with each one when they're posted. I hope you like them, as a set they're pretty striking.

  22. Are you effin' kidding me right now? M&M scented candles? Do you know that one of my favoritest candies ever is the peanut M&M? Do you know how I cried when they took them out of the vending machines at work ('cause it would be SOOOO hard for my to stop and get some on my way in if I really NEEDED them...because face it, you really do sometimes.)

    Thank you soooooooooo much Anne!! You really didn't have to! It was my pleasure to hook a sister up! You enjoy your painting hiatus...I am going to keep watching our show and we shall have to have a nice long chat about it upon your return!!xx

    2. I also thought about the Betty Crocker scented candles, but these were more fun.

      I've finished Season 9 and there's no more episodes on Netflix. I'm gutted as there's just nothing else out there that is as good as this. I'm going to start the series again from the beginning!

    3. Now I'm sorry that I didn't photograph a full M&M covered round cake I once made for a customer :) If I remember correctly I used 15 small bags of it for the task. It cost more than the cake itself LOL

    4. If you make another one, take a pic and post the recipe. It would go over big with all of us.

    Congrats to the other winners !

  25. I didn't even know those candles existed! What a great bunch of booty for everyone, Anne! Congratulations to all the winners!!

    Anne, enjoy your time off. I hope you get plenty of sunshine and warm weather so you can paint and take pictures outdoors. The flowers are almost blooming!! Aaahhh

    1. They weren't. Lots of gamers give out a surprise gift to the person who comments the most on a giveaway. I've won tones of stuff by doing it.

      It just has to warm up as I'm so tired of looking at a dead, grey world. Nothing but the crocuses have bloomed here yet. Hopefully the worst is over and the world will come back to life.

  26. Yeah, I won something! I must say I really did want the samurai, an excuse to buy into a whole new period. Congrats to the other winners as well. Now I'll just have to hurry up and paint what's on my desk, but when the Samurai get here they're going to the head of the queue.

    1. That's exactly how I wound up with so many Wild West figures! These giveaways are good for the mini business!
