Gansey Giveaway Winner

As promised, today is the day to choose whose feet the Gansey socks will be keeping warm this Winter.

It was tough as I loved every single comment and truly wished that I could send a pair to everyone. So how to select.

Then it came to me. The Acorn Wish Fairies might help. I checked the calendar and they were indeed collecting the acorn wishes this weekend.


They were so excited to help. You see, this time of year, they are collecting the wishes that are left wafting in the air. Some of these wishes are caught by trees. The oak trees store them in their seeds.

The fairies collect the wishes in the caps, leaving the acorn, and take the wishes back to be sorted.

In celebration of their hard work, they are able to grant the last wish collected, straight away.

The fairies sing and laugh as they scoop the wishes up in the acorn caps. Careful to make sure the wishes do not blow away in the wind again, as some wishes do. Some are caught again, but others spend all their time travelling on the wind.

The acorn caps are loaded into the cart, pulled by a single unicorn.

It was the perfect day for the harvest. No wind and the sun shone.

Once the cart was loaded, the fairies headed home. Happy with their days work.

Before they went on their way, they granted the last wish collected. The wish to receive the Gansey socks.

The Acorn fairy was so happy to show me.

Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun and left a comment. Amy, I’ll be dropping you an email.

(The Acorn Wish Fairies would like to thank AJ, BL and TF for all their help.)
