Giveaway for November and funding for WWF

Im up to 73 followers on my blog! woohoo... thats pretty cool! Im thinking though it would be fun to reach the 100 mark so thats only 27 people away.

To help me get there I thought Id do a November prize and giveaway one of my moose zip purses.

So, if you would like one of these for free all you have to do is be a follower of my blog, add a comment in this post mentioning WHY you would like my purse, and also give a keep mention of an animal you would have liked/wished to of seen.... an animal that is now extinct!

I will be donating $10 to The World Wildlife Fund at the end of this month to support with the protection of our endangered species, our biodiviersity in Australia and Sustainable Tourism. This is also my way of saying thankyou to my followers for participating in my giveaway. To find out more about WWF visit their website at

The animal I would have liked to of seen was a Dodo! You see so many pictures of them, but Ill never see one in my whole life.

Its scary to think that when my own children grow up and they are my age they might never see a real life Numbat that I have seen when I lived in Western Autralia. There are now only 1500 or less left in their whole population. So supporting a fund like WWF, I know that my own kids might one day get to see some of these endangered animals and they WONT become extinct like the many hundreds that already have, and that includes plants as well!

(Dont get me started to talk about our biodiversity of plant species in Australia! Ill be here all day.... we are one lucky country to have such a diverse and rare range of plant life throughout Australia. We are still discovering new plant species regularly! Imagine that.... discovering a new plant in your own back yard!... So it is important that we consider our fragile forests, they wont be around forever if we continue developing the way we are....)

Blue Ginger helps to support our fragile environment by using environmentally sustainable fabrics including hemps, linens and organic cottons!

Add your comments people! Lets get above 100 and help me to support a good cause! YAY!


  1. I saw a moose one time on a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. It was amazing to see such a creature in someone's yard--although it was in the mountains. Then later in life I met my husband who has told me that the moose is one of his favorite animals. My two year old even has a moose pillow pal! After doing a bit of research, it's hard to say which extinct animal I'd like to see--so many to choose from, but I'm going to go with Steller's Sea Cow.

  2. I'm having a mind blank on which animal. I'm already a follower and saw your items on madeit. Love them

  3. I am no. 74!!

    I would love to win a moose zip purse, because I think that moose are amazing creatures and I've never seen a real one!! (The purse also looks cool!).

    I would have loved to have seen a 'Broad faced Potoroo' as I have no idea what it is!! Aussie animals are the BEST! so quirky!! LoL

  5. Hi, I am already a follower. I love the moose! We are hoping to go to America next year and would love to see a real one - if they are still around then....

    I would have liked to have seen the Lesser Bilby

  6. I'd love to have seen the Irish Deer - we visit every year and imagine seeing this huge beast!
    I love the Quagga just for the name!!
    I'd love to win one of your purses just because they look so gorgeous!

  7. I became a follower last month! I'm so clever!

    I put a post about your giveaway on my blog.

  8. I would love to give it to my friend for Christmas, its very her (and very me too!).

    I would have loved to have seen a DoDo I think, sad when they become extinct.

    this will link to my old blog. My current one is

  9. I like bandicoots, so my "sad you're extinct" message is for the desert bandicoot.
    Your purses look great - the moose would be good for almost anyone of any age - just a great design...
    (PS: up to 79 now!!)

  10. oooh! I'm number 80 - only 20 to to!

    I saw some of your work in a little shop on Northcote high street today - so lovely! Great gift ideas for xmas too...

    WWF is such a great cause! I also would have loved to see a dodo, what a fantastically weird looking animal!

  11. Yeah! I think I'm number 81. This is the first Blog I have put on my list to follow. All new to this. :)

    I would LOVE to win the Moose purse as they are my favorite animal and it's so hard to find nice Moose items. I first saw a moose in Alaska in 1997 when I went to visit a friend in the Airforce up there. They are so majestic and beutiful.

    I would also love to of been able to see a West Indian monk seal. It's so sad that there are so many animals that once where but no longer are.

    Keep up the great job.
