Flower Garland Giveaway - The Winners

Thanks to everyone who participated at our flower garland giveaway! After reading all your wonderful comments, we would love to send a garland to every single one of you, but it would take too long to crochet that many vines, flowers and leaves. So, here are the winners :

One garland goes to Solange, because she was the first to know, that the pictures in question were taken in Coburg.  As far as I could find out by now, this means, the garland will travel to Brasila, wow! Congratulations, Solange! You answered so fast, have you ever been to Coburg?

The second garland was raffled among all the other participants. I closed my eyes and grabbed one name out of the bowl:

Congratulations, Sarah H! Please send me an Email because your blogger profile isn't public and I have no chance to contact you otherwise.

Now, this was really fun and we hope, you've enjoyed our little giveaway, too!
Thanks again, to all of you. We'll be back soon to tell you, what has been going on here recently.


Jo and Mo


  1. well done to the winners..... :) such a pretty prize!

  2. congratulations to the winners:) I think I will have to give the garland a try - they are sooo beautiful!

  3. \o/ Wow, that's great!
    But... I have to make a confession.
    I cheated.

    First, I look a map and searched for images from various cities around Nuremberg, and found 3 candidates. Then I have a hunch, and look at the file name of the photos

    The funny thing is, when I searched for images from Coburg, I found a lot of brazilian flags:,0

    I have no idea :D

  4. @elaine: it is very easy. If you get stuck (because the instructions might be misleading or something) let me know and I will help!

    @Solange: Oh *lol* the filenames! I didn't think of that! However, that was truly clever of you!
    Please don't forget to email me your address. Would you like your garland in light or in darker green (vines and leaves)? Did you get my e Mail?


  5. P.s. @Solange: The link you found is about a Samba festival, which was celebrated at Coburg this year. Samba and Samba groups are getting quite popular in Germany, lately. It's such a cheerful way to party! :-)

  6. Congratulations to the winners!!! I will just have to make one for myself now won't I :-)

  7. That flower-garland really was lovely!

  8. Oh my, I can't believe I came too late for this giveaway. It's absolutely stunning!

  9. I didn't win but I have given you a blogger award over at my blog anyway ;)

  10. I followed the link from Teawagon over to you and how glad was I. So colourful, fun and inspirational - a blissful new blog to read.

    Welcome !

During some ten years, I have developed an extremely complex and unimitable technique that should carry some interest of anyone pursuing a serious artistic ambition and expertise.

    And I write poetry in several languages:


    There's much in the world that you can't explain.
    It's revealed for you to remember
    by the whispering voice of a distant train
    or a midnight rain in november.

    Horizon within! You can always find
    the keys to Enigma. Let's mention
    one basic Truth: of spirited Mind
    Is Nature naught but extension.

    Internal expanses! In dreams, ridden
    by fear and longing you roam
    that deep Southeast in your soul hidden
    ...on your random journey back home.

    Single Swingle


    Casualidad sopla la sangre
    de alguno señor desconocido
    durante los pocos restantes
    momentos del resplandor de faroles

    que se vislumbran tras el follaje
    flameando de las obsesiónes
    igual efimero como gotas
    del cinzano de la soledad –

    En aquel tiempo me levanta
    dentro uno incidente avejentado
    que en seguida palidece
    al camouflaje de abstraccion;

    chica, nadie conoce que tus grisos
    ojos significan aún; con todo
    el sueño que hube evacuado
    tu escudriñas nuevamente.

    My Spanish poetry!

    Das Leben dergleichen Halbfaßung
    der Welt wahr immer nicht wahr,
    nicht wahr? Die fristlos Entlaßung
    am Ende wird kaum wunderbar.

    So laßen uns Menschlingen viele
    besonders besonnene zum
    Zeitweilegem Zeiten als Ziele
    des Lebens halbfaßen darum.

    We need a new analysis of probability. My hypothesis is that disorder is as constant as energy, since increasing material disorder, entropy, is counterbalanced by increasing structural regularity, symmetry. I tell you the Law of Entropy and the Law of Symmetry, ruling approximatively equal universal validity derive through bifurcation of the still more basic Law of Probability, that is, math, and rather simple math at that. Can you dig this?

    that's fantastic!


  26. Amei seu blog, já estou te seguindo. Quando puder da uma passadinha no meu
    Boa semana, bjus!!!

  27. That garland is so pretty -- I have GOT to learn to crochet!

  28. Jo, gostei tanto do seu blog! Vi que faz tempo que vc não o atualiza. Hoje fiz uma postagem no meu, aqui do Brasil. Se você usar o tradutor do Google você vai poder compreender. Diz assim:Nomes, inspiração e maluquetes
    Dizem que o nosso nome talvez seja o som que mais gostamos de ouvir. Acho também que a grafia dele promove em nós um efeito aconchegante. Digo isso porque navegando na blogsfera encontrei o, de uma alemã maluquete chamada Jo, que deu o nome de Mo para uma criatura imaginária que lhe inspira artes e textos. É como se as intuições, talento, criatividade e habilidades pertencessem a um ser efêmero e volátil, que tem vontade própria, e nos visita quando bem entende. Adorei isso! Pois bem, lá no blog foi feito um sorteio em que uma tal Solange (não sou eu), também brasileira, ganhou o prêmio. A foto aí da postagem foi a forma como ela foi avisada. Sorte das três: da Jo, porque a Mo lhe dá ótimas dicas, da Mo que tem a Jo como forma de concretizar suas ideias e da Solange que ganhou a guirlanda. Pensando bem, sorte minha também, que tive a oportunidade de pegar carona nessa viagem. Bom fim de semana a todas!

  29. Olá Muito Prazer!!
    Adorei seu blog,tem lindos croches por aqui!Parabéns!!

  30. Hi. I just tonight discovered your website, read through, and thoroughly enjoyed it all! Jo and Mo need to come back!

  31. You’ve made wonderful garlands with Mo! The tutorial you posted here is very helpful. Thanks a lot! Your followers can make one by themselves as I already did. I’ve made wonderful one by myself and it felt great! When things gone wrong in following the tutorial, some small things might have gone wrong but don’t get tired trying!

  32. Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost youre using? Ive loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!
