Ginger of the North!

I'm really a ginger, in Canada. I love Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch. I have great friends and a great job. This blog is a random collection of thoughts, ideas, and stuff I'm currently obsessed with! (Note: this blog is occasionally NSFW. Ye be warned.)

To celebrate 1000+ followers, I’m hosting a giveaway!

Thank you all so much for following me. I’m really not sure why you do, but to thank you for putting up with stupid, infrequent art and text posts about various places I’ve fallen asleep, here is a small giveaway. I’d like to apologise to my British followers, who must’ve had enough bunting and union jack merch to last them until their grave, but I’m unimaginative.

 

BOTTLE-O-BAKER STREET

The main item in this giveaway is tiny (Approximately 2.5cm in height, in fact) but its not the size that matters, it’s the contents.

I have the privilege of living in London, and having Baker Street 40 minutes away from my own home, but I know there are thousands of Sherlockians out there who may never see 221b. So I took a trip to 221b, armed with a tiny vial and no shame, and filled it with dirt directly from Sherlock’s home. From one of his potted plants, in fact. 

The idea may be dumb and sentimental (I’m sure Sherlock is mocking me right now) but I thought it’d be nice to have a piece, albeit small, of Baker Street to hold close to your heart, however many tens, hundreds or thousands of miles separate you from 221b.

 

ALSO INCLUDED IN GIVEAWAY!

Because a tiny vial is hardly enough!

  • Sweets! A large Cadbury’s chocolate bar and a Curly Wurly. 
  • Your very own Jawn- a WWF hedgehog plush toy (my cat took a liking to him, so I’ve saved him and tried my best to de-fur him; sorry if he has the traces of Dave’s affection on him!!)
  • A smiley beanie ball; brilliant for throwing at walls when boredom ensues. Also saves on extra rent due to bullet holes. (my cat also liked this.. I’ve de-furred it too)
  • A 221b keychain (purchased at the Sherlock Holmes museum)
  • A chocolate medal, awarded for assistance to detective Sherlock Holmes (also purchased at the museum.)
  • Union Jack tissues
  • A medium Union Jack flag
  • A cute double-decker bus necklace
  • Wendy and friends- mustache paper clips 
  • An ‘I ♥ London’ sticker and a ‘Baker Street’ road-sign sticker
  • I was also thinking I might draw something, but I’m not sure anyone would want anything handrawn by a mediocre artist. I’d be willing to throw in some sketches though, if the winner wanted! [examples here]

 

THE RULES

  1. It is not necessary to follow me, but I’d be honoured if you chose to anyway! I may alter the giveaway (add more, tweak the end date, ect.) so make sure you have a way of finding out!
  2. Likes and reblogs count, but i’m going to have to limit it to 3 reblogs per day, purely to avoid dash take-overs.
  3. Your blog must be active. I will be checking back through the archive to see if it’s not been created to boost your chances.
  4. I’ll need to send it, so obviously I’ll be requiring an address. Also, I can’t say how long it’ll take to get the funds to ship it, especially if the winner resides outside of Europe. Bear with me!

This giveaway will be active until 15th of July (favourite number orz), and end at 9pm GMT (4pm EST).

The winner will be picked at random, on one of those number thingys, so it’s completely fair. Good Luck, and thanks once again!
