What I spent last week's grocery money on

(aka: Giveaway #2)

Remember how
I wanted to go to Napier to see the miniature exhibition on at The Hawkes Bay Museum and Gallery?

And remember how they kindly sent me
pictures of the exhibition to share with you?

Well, there's more. I ordered the catalogue with some of last week's grocery money. And ordered an extra one for my blogiverary giveaway.

It's intricateand beautifuland fabulously designed.The story starts:

Just before dawn on Christmas Eve, 1940, while he lay on a rug on the library floor, Kevin found he could bend his tiny corded arms. Very shortly after that he discovered he could move his head, so that the view he had hitherto had up his sister's skirt to her maker's mark - MADE IN GERMANY - was eclipsed.

If you want to know the rest you have three options:

1. Visit
HBMAG in person and read it yourself.

2.
Email the HBMAG shop manager and arrange to buy your own copy ($NZ 8 + postage)

3. Leave a comment on this post and be in the running to win this copy. Entries close Wednesday morning next week (17 Feb) and, as usual, I'll post anywhere in the world.

What a funny start to a story! If I don't win your giveaway-quite likely probably-I will visit the link-but I will save it for next week just in case. Thanks for the mention yesterday-I did love that exhibition!
Hope you have some money left over for groceries!

I would dearly love to read this book as I have some of those dolls myself and I am curious to know what the story is about.
But I do not trust my luck here and will email to New Zealand, too, and hope they will really send it to Europe - and I need another one for my friend's birthday...
