Welcome to the Burton Blog Bash 2016

Welcome to my wee corner of the Burton Blog Bash, which I am co-hosting with my lovely bloggy friend, Holly, of Holly's Horrorland.

Anyone who knows me at all, knows that I'm mad about Tim Burton! When Holly suggested we throw a celebratory blog bash to coincide with the release of the great man's new movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children... well, I was on it like a seagull on a hot chip, people! Tim Burton is responsible for some of my all-time favourite movies: Beetlejuice, Batman Returns, Dark Shadows, Sleepy Hollow... and the list goes on!

So, to pay tribute to Mr. Burton, I have needle-felted a Jack Skellington ornie for a giveaway. As I'm sure you all know, Jack is a leading citizen of Halloween Town in Tim Burton's stop-motion animated film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. So if you'd like a chance to win him, just put the words "Pumpkin King" in the comments below.

As always, I will assign a number to each comment in the order that they are left and the winner will be chosen via the RANDOM.ORG Random Number Generator. (Please make sure you leave me some way to contact you if you win.) I will announce the winner in about a week's time.

Holly will be posting a list of all the other participants in the Burton Blog Bash, so please do visit her blog for a bit of a mingle with the other guests.

Thank you for stopping by!

* This giveaway has now ended. The winner will be announced soon. *

The Burton Blog Bash 2016

Hi bloggy friends! As you may have noticed, I'm not around Blogland too much these days. Lack of time has meant that I'm really only here for parties, but with Halloween nigh (woohoo!), celebratory bloggy-shenanigans abound!

Holly (Holly's Horrorland) and I are throwing a wee Burton Blog Bash on September 30, which coincides with the release of Tim Burton's new movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. This is just a bit of fun, so if you're a Burton fan, and you think you might be interested, just click on the link for more details!

And while I'm here, I also want to mention that my adorable friend Magaly is once again holding her Witches in Fiction blog fest. This event is now in its sixth year! For more information just click on the link.

'Tis the season! Hope to see you at the parties!
