Please Vote for my *Cheshire Cat* Ornament

From Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

"Cheshire-Puss," she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider.

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.

"I don't much care where---" said Alice.

"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

"---So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.

"Oh you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."


I normally don't enter contests, usually because I believe they involve a lot of luck and well, I really don't usually feel all that lucky :o) This contest, however, involved entering a handmade ornament and that I have a little experience with so I entered. I guess it still involves a bit of luck but it also involves skill and hard work (both of which I'm familiar with) and to my surprise, my *Cheshire Cat* ornament is in the running for this week's Grand Prize. If it wins, I win $1000 and my ornament could be featured in the magazine. I love Better Homes and Gardens! Been reading it since I was a little girl so being featured in BHG, to me, would be the *cat's meow*, so to speak. So, shameless request for a vote here, I would be so grateful if you could vote for my Cheshire Cat and if you feel so inclined to share this with your family and friends. I know a lot of my blog readers also read my Facebook page and profile so I apologize to those of you who have been inundated with this there also, I'm trying to reach as many friends and followers as possible in the most unobtrusive way. :o)

Thank You All for taking the time to read this and for voting!
