One World One Heart


This morning, over at my friend CatieAn's blog, I read about an amazing bloggy event going on called One World One Heart. Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian is the host of this phenomenon, has been hosting it for a couple of years. It is all about meeting new bloggy friends and reconnecting with old. Finding kindred spirits who we haven't ventured out and met yet. Connecting with people in our corner of the world and also across the pond both ways. It's what blogging is all about, connections and making our world seem not so big and scary. It's a wonderful thing for me, to think that because of this crazy bloggy world, I have friends all over the place, people I've never met face to face but feel that I know. Some of them I do know that I could show up on their doorstep, introduce myself and be swept into a hug, invited in for tea and a cozy chat. How comforting is that ~ to know that there are people all over the place that really truly care for you. Incredible.

As soon as I read about this, I had to join in because I feel so strongly about what Lisa is trying to do. Oh - and I visited her site and swooned over her beautiful vibrant artwork. Go take a peek for yourself. It's gorgeous and so much fun! In the name of the game I've decided to give two prizes away for One World One Heart to two Magic Carpet 2010 ticket holders. Getting your ticket is easy, just leave a comment, that's all, no tricks, only treats! The winners will be chosen on February 15th by a random number picker at random.org. Easy peasy!


First, I will be giving away a set of four homemade picture note cards and envelopes featuring my Gnome friends. I've caught them in the cutest situations - out playing in the woods, feeding chickens, all kinds of things, so wanted to share their antics with a blogger friend, new or old. Then, for the second prize, an actual flesh and blood, or I suppose I should say, yarn and fiberfill, Gnome....Mr. Barney Gnome, brother to a dear friend of mine. Read on for the story of how we met.


I would like you to meet my friend, Mr. Walter Gnome. My daughter, Shilo, and I were strolling along in the woods one recent afternoon when I heard a bit of rustling in a tree nearby. I heard a tiny voice proclaim "Top o' the morning to you" and with a bit of searching found Walter stretching his arms in pleasure at the tiny bit of sunshine that was peeking through the trees. (Yes, it was afternoon, but a Sunday and Gnomes tend to sleep late on Sundays.) Walter and I quickly became fast friends and not a day goes by that we don't visit on the phone. I was telling my new friend about this wonderful blogging event and he came up with a brilliant idea. It seems that his brother, Barney, has a hankering to travel a bit and meet some new people. He would be willing to put himself out there as a prize for One World One Heart, that is, if anyone would have him. I assured him that someone would love a new little friend such as he. I wish I could show you a picture of Barney, but alas, he seems to be attached to my crochet hook and was to self-conscious to let me take a photo with that metal hook attached to him. He's every bit as cute as his brother, though. (Please don't let Walter know I said that. He would be crushed. Thankfully he hasn't mastered the art of computers so won't be reading this.)


Sometimes Gnomes are shy, actually a lot of times. Even though he and I are friends, sometimes I still find him hiding in the tall grass, just waiting quietly, hoping we don't pass him by. We don't. I always keep an eye out for him, careful that an eagle doesn't carry him off. I'm pretty sure that you're little gnome friend will be fairly shy as well. They are brothers after all.

I've told him that he will be going to live in a new wonderful home and that his new friends have not yet been chosen. That they will be the holders of the Magic Carpet 2010 ticket here at On a Rainy Night. Barney, (that's his name you know), thinks that I meant he was going to be flying to his new home upon a magic carpet. I tried to explain to him that no, he would be hitching a ride with the mailman, but I still keep catching him singing this tune:

"Come on down,

Stop on by~

Take a carpet and fly

To another Arabian Night!"
He's quite the singer too, I tell you, a deep rich baritone.
Leave me a comment if you want to enter in, and even if you don't. I would love to know that you stopped by and am very happy to meet you! Please make sure that in your comment, you've left me a way to contact you in case you win and don't forget that it's not to late to join in One World One Heart and have a giveaway of your own, meeting all kinds of new blogging friends along the way. (Now, I put enough links in here. I know you can find it. Go on...)
Thank you, Lisa, for hosting such a spectacular event!

*waves to Walter*
*and Paula*
I think the mailman is a safer bet than a magic carpet, if you come here- he knows just where we are, and can bring you right to the gate. And then we can have tea, and almond cookies. I do hope you like almond cookies!
Paula, I am sorry you can't hitch a ride with the mailman too! But I think you'll be happier at your gnome-gifted home. So I wave virtual cookies at you!

Glad you joined the Ride!

There I was, sitting at the computer, merrily typing away, when all of a sudden I heard this little bell-like sound, and then a few sweet gentle notes, and then a faint, beautifully mellow voice singing.......

My name is Barney,
will you be my friend
when I'll go aflying
at the giveaway's end?
When the carpet will take me
to England's shore,
will you look after me
forever more?

It was so beautifully sung, I gently whispered to the wind - of course I'll be your friend, come live with me!

I loved your story about Walter and Barney. I would love to have Barney come to live with me- I probably would take him to school with me and let my children love him too. Please add my name to you generous giveaway. I hope you are having as much fun as I am on this wonderful magic carpet ride.
