OLZ Wordful Wednesday/Bowl Giveaway

Today we have this wonderful Malawian carved wood bowl to give to YOU - if you're the lucky commenter...

Mommy tried to take a photo of it for you, but I insisted on modeling it no matter where she went with it. So here are photos of the bowl - and ME!







Any suggestions on my modeling career? Besides needing my cousins to come give me another manicure?

Now on to the important stuff...

To Enter to win the bowl (sans model): All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Please make sure you include an email so I can contact you if you win.

You can get up to two extra entries if you (1) post about Operation Love Zimbabwe on your blog, and/or (2) put the Operation Love Zimbabwe button on your blogsite. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

Entries must be made by 11:59 p.m. PST on February 14, 2009. The winners will be selected using http://www.random.org/ and will be contacted by email.

That looks like lovely bowl, I am sure we could find a use for it on our Montessori shelf.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I LOVE this bowl. How gorgeous. And the model should be highly paid by now. A terrific job of showing us all the features.

I don't put my email out on the 'net tho. If I'm lucky enough to have my name drawn for this, you can contact me through my blog comments, and then I'll send you the info.

Thank you so very much for entering me in your giveaway. I hope I have a good chance of winning. I have a special spot for the bowl already!!!


My W W is a family movie that I watched...but I saw something in the movie that I hadn't seen before. Come on over and see if you can see what I saw. Happy Wednesday.
