Last week, I was fortunate enough to win a '1000 views' freebie from Monda's blog, and the parcel arrived today!

Pretty golden ribbons

It looks exciting, doesn't it? And that's because it was, very much so! Inside was the lovely bespectacled monster, Austin. He made himself right at home.


And look what else he brought with him:

The small print: "made in Paradise since 1979"

So big, big thanks to Monda! Austin is quite the most dashing monster I could ever imagine, what with his funky specs and all, and I think he is fab. Equally, I really love the bag - bags are my biggest weakness, and this one is just great. I do believe that Austin and I are going to get on just famously - andf if you were wondering where you could get a lovely monster all of your own, then head on over to Monda's etsy shop where there are monsters galore (but none as nice as mine, 'cos he's the best).

While I'm busy thanking people, I also wanted to say 'hello and thanks' to all the nice folks who have stopped by my blog and left comments. You've made a new girl feel very welcome, and I do appreciate hearing from you all and checking out your own blogs.

That said, some of you are blatant stirrers. Trashalou: thanks a bundle for putting worrying suspicions in my head about The Armless One - I'm now convinced he wants to murder me in my sleep. Great.

And in response to the debate about how The Armless One managed to get the shiny thing around his neck without any arms: I think he has joined forces with these fellas...

Rent-a-Crowd (aka the Monkey Army)

... so now I think they're out to get me too. *Sigh*

Would you be afraid of these guys?

Would you?

Never fear - you have Austin the Icing Monster to keep you safe!

p.s. loving that I got name-checked in your blog - my family think I'm crazy but I'm very excited :-))

wow, he looks like he's really settling in well at your house, and I know my monsters are fond of monkeys (even the ones without arms) so I'm sure he'll be feeling right at home.

Hello, just found your blog via Monkee Maker - I had to stop by to find out the story behind "the vicious chicken" - I love it!

I'm going to try not to be bitter. BUT THAT MONSTER SHOULD BE MINE!! Damn - I failed!

Ahem. Hope you have lots of fun with him.

I'd love to have seen the human chain ..... make that monkey chain which must have been deployed - under the cover of darkness presumably? - to place the shiny thing around old harmless-armless!

Wow, that's a lotta monkees! Monkee Maker's going to have to get up pretty early in the morning to defeat that army.

You must have drunk a lot of tea to get that lot - I got mine free with a very big box of tea bags, but I'm still drinking the tea!
