WINNER: One World One Heart Giveaway: Magic Tortoises

AND THE WINNER IS...

Congratulations on your new herd!

Original post:

Welcome to my One World One Heart giveaway post! New visitors and old friends, hello! I am the Genie of the Magic Nutshell. I saw the OWOH logo floating around blogland earlier this month and just had to participate, seeing as magic carpets are my preferred method of transportation.


One lucky commenter will receive this herd of seven handmade psychedelic tortoises.


These cheery little friends generate automatic smiles and remind us all to take life slow, be bold in our uniqueness, and make our lives vivid by filling them with colorful characters.

Click the logo above to find out more about One World One Heart and hop on the magic carpet to visit other participating bloggers with giveaway posts.

To enter my random drawing for the tortoises, leave one comment on this post with a way I can contact you if you are the winner (e-mail address, link, etc.). The winner will be announced on Monday, February 15.

Love,
Genie

  4. Hey Genie of the Shell - what a lovely place to stop and rest awhile while my carpet refuels. I had a big grin on my face when I saw your little herd - you are so right, an automatic smile was indeed generated! I like this stopping off point - from the whimsy name to all the lovely writing and pictures. Can I visit again?

  18. These tortoises are great. When I was younger I remember going to boutiques. Quite frankly, boutiques were places where young people went to buy drug paraphernalia and to hook up with other teens. I used to love the artwork there and the personality these places had. These tortoises reminded me of the kind of wild, fun stuff that one would buy. I would have bought one of them for sure..that and the Jimi Hendrix blacklight poster, and the strong jasmine incense. I'm just saying.

  155. Ohh, they are so cute. I would love to be in the drawing. They are great to brighten up a grey day - at the moment we have many grey days here in Germany. Some are white but the warmer ones are just grey grey grey - and it is hard work to wake up in the mornings. So it is only natural, i think, that I would love to offer this herd a new home.

  156. Ohhh! Turtles are my favorite animal, and orange is my favorite color! I would love the chance to win these guys. I promise to give them a good home with a bunch of other turtle friends! :)

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Till

UPDATE: After purging his sillies on the side project LINDEMANN and participating in another Rammstein documentary video, Till has begun work on a seventh Rammstein album, estimated to be released in 2017. 

October 2017 is the release date of a NatGeo photo book of Till's travels in the Yukon with Joey Kelly: Mein Gehasster Freund Yukon

Yukon Ho!

For fresh squeezed gossip juice, here's a bad (as in so good) romance. Till Lindemann
Till Lindemann is the only living human who could kick Chuck Norris's ass, but he doesn't, because they go on emo hunting trips together. The source of this fact, Urban Dictionary, also provides the following essential details: "Till Lindemann is the anthropomorphic personification of pure masculinity who invented the often-lethal dance move: The Till Hammer..." "He challenges the definition of masculine..." "Every German fertility clinic features a cardboard cutout of Till Lindemann choking a shark with one hand, whils…

A Bad Romance Starring Till Lindemann, Sophia Thomalla, Gavin Rossdale, Simone Thomalla, Sven Martinek, Andy LaPlegua, and Leila Lowfire

To misquote Gaga, "I don't speak German, but I can look at foreign tabloids and guess what's going on if you like."


I guess it would be more professional and ladylike for me to be above this sordid celebrity gossip, but I'm not. I'm so not.


So let's see if I've got this straight. From what I gather...


Metalgod Till Lindemann, 54, and model Sophia Thomalla, 27 (upper left) recently exited a five-year, on-off, opennish relationship, which began when Sophia's actress mother Simone (upper right, in the center) and Simone's then-lover (between her marriages to nubile young athletes) actor Sven Martinek (lower left, in the center), who is famous for his lead role in German TV show Der Clown (lower right) thought it would be cute to set Sophia up with their pal Till. Apparently, the 22-year-old Sophia was not repulsed at her parental figures setting her up with a drinking buddy significantly older than her mom, which absolutely makes sense when the d…

Ich Liebe Rammstein: Richard

Richard Z. Kruspe
Richard Zven Kruspe is Rammstein's founding father, lead guitarist, and natural frontman. He's gregarious, well-spoken in both German and English, a professional showman, and an enthusiastic promoter for the band. In German, his name is pronounced "REE-kard," and in Germanglish, "Reeshard," or "Reesh" for short. Richard is sexy, and he knows it. To many Rammstein fans, he is the cuuuuuuute one. His Facebook page would have you believe it.

Legend has it that Richard has a lovechild with lead singer Till Lindeman. The myth is based in complicated facts and figures, including one unconventional love triangle. Circa 1990, Richard and Till were in a band together (along with future Rammstein rhythm guitarist Paul Landers) with the cheeky name First Arsch. Till, the drummer, was a single father of a little girl at the time, the issue of a short-lived, youthful shotgun wedding--to Richard's current girlfriend. When "Mrs. Lindem…
