Gocco Giveaway

I'm having a giveaway to help with the stock lessening for my move from Australia to Northern Ireland! All you have to do is go to my bridbird etsy shop, look at all my gocco prints and leave me a comment on this blog post which is your favourite design. The winner will receive a set of 6 different coloured fantail gocco prints similar to the one below. The closing date for this giveaway is Monday 14th September. My bridbird shop $10 sale continues until 15th September, after that the shop will be closed for a number of weeks and possibly not sell these items when open again. This could be your last chance!

Good luck!


I'll also just mention for Melbourne readers the fantastic girls of Thread Den, who are truly amazing, are putting on an extravaganza fashion show for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. It sounds amazing.

They say "it's going to be an amazing night out - with a cast of dancers, live strings, opera singers - and of course stunning couture and ready-to-wear collections from emerging Australian designers.

Tickets are cheap cheap at only $12 (plus booking fee) at the Thread Den shop. And you go into the draw to win a pre-show makeover (and who doesn't love a makeover?) dinner at Sosta Cucina, 
bar tab at the after party and accommodation for two. So what's stopping you? Eh?"

Booking details:

Friday September 4, 7.30pm &
Saturday September 5, 7.30pm

The Lithuanian Club
44 Errol Street, North Melbourne

Tickets: $12 + credit card booking fee. Phone:( 03) 9329 5305

Oi, that's easy, the three satin bowbirds and after that the peacock. In fact, I think I like them so much I am going over to buy them. So there.

I like two little fantails in pink and red (and the kitchen utensils too!)

Mujercita said...

My favorite is definitely the peacock print.

Jorja said...

The fantails for me are the pink and red,
they'll sing and chirp above my bed.
So you won't be upset if you pick me Brid,
I'll hang them together, they'll tweet in a grid!

This Aussie loves magpies, their antics, their song and their company but I just wish they would stop using fibre from my doormat for their nests!! Congrats on your move to Ireland Bridget, love all your work.

My favourite print is still the cups which I got from you at the markets recently on a trip to Melbourne and hangs next to glittery cake cards my hubby got me from Zeta Florence... the best accompaniment for a cuppa!

the magpie is my favourite, all the best for your new adventures

Alice said...

Dear Bridget,

I love how you have illustrated the assemblage of three female Satin Bowerbirds - all too often people focus on the resplendent black-blue splendour of the males, but fail to see the exceptional beauty in the females (and young males which look VERY similar to females for several years until they reach maturity). I also like how the females share the brilliant iriscident violet-purple irises that the males have.

This probably has to be my favourite, but your gocco prints of the Victorian terraces and featherstitch fantails are also gorgeous!

All the best for your travels to N. Ireland!

:-) Alice.
