The Magic Carpet is Ready to Take Off - Get Your Ticket to Ride

.
Comments on my OWOH giveaway are now closed. Thank you to all 270(!!!) of you for participating here, and to everyone who offered giveaways of their own. I've had a blast. A winner will be drawn and announced in a new post just as soon as I've packed my kids off to school.
.
There is something magical happening in the blogosphere this month. The 2010 Global Blog Event One World One Heart is off and running, or rather flying, it is a Magic Carpet ride after all. Created by Lisa from
A Whimsical Bohemian this event brings bloggers from the farthest corners of the globe together to share their worlds and their creations in one giant month-long giveaway extravaganza.
.
I have no idea how I missed this in years past but I'm so glad to have heard about it now since it meshes so perfectly with what blogging means to me - the chance to connect and create a shared community with bloggers from around the world, to recognize and celebrate our shared humanity. To remember,
and to remind ourselves, that what unites us is far, FAR stronger than what divides us.
.
Here, around my island (no, not a tropical island (wouldn't that be nice) - my kitchen island, where my life happens - you can see it, right up there in my header) I use
photography and writing to create those shared connections, to share with you my life here in Israel - as a woman, a wife, a mother, a photographer, and of course a blogger.
.
Now that you're here grab a chair and make yourselves at home, there's always a fresh cup of
coffee and a place around the island for friends both old and new.
.
And in the spirit of One World One Heart, what could be more appropriate to offer than an olive branch, symbol of peace. I'd like to give one of you an 8x10 inch (18x25cm) print of my fine art photograph
The Ancient Olive Tree, seen below, or any of the other fine art and nature photographs offered for sale in my etsy shop (one print in total, to be selected by the winner).
.
Click to enlarge
.
The technical blah blah:
  • To enter, simply leave me a comment here on the blog.
  • One entry (one comment) per person please.
  • It's not a requirement for entry but if you do know which image you'd choose if you win I'd love to hear it.
  • You don't need to be a blogger to win, but do make sure I have a way to contact you if you do.
  • Comments on this post will close at the end of the day (Israel time) on 14 February to give me a chance to name a winner on 15 February 2010.
    .
Good luck, and don't forget to click on the Magic Carpet button on my sidebar to visit all the other giveaway participants.

Wonderful idea, Robin. I love the olive tree and all that it symbolizes.

KnutzEls said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. From your name I surely thought you live on a sunny tropical island, but the kitchenisland is also a nice place to be. Love your blog and the olive tree is fabulous.

kaye said...

what a wonderful idea--I'd love your olive tree picture. I'm actually going to purchase it as soon as Christmas is paid for *sheepish grin*. So if I don't happen to win it--someday it will be in my home. I love this picture.

foxygknits said...

Robin, the ancient olive tree touches my heart in ways you cannot even imagine. I would be incredibly honored to win it.

Thank you so much for stopping by Foxy G's Den of i-KNIT-quity, #113 on the Magic Carpet Ride.

Bonjour Robin!

I love the flower images the most - though I have to say the puddle one from the other days I also find interesting - possibly because it looks like a map ( a slight obsession of mine!!)

I've never heard of this either; thanks for sharing! It sounds wonderful. Your post is so welcoming and (of course) your photo is amazing. It's ironic, too, because the middle grade novel I'm writing has an olive tree in it and I've been looking at photos / pics online!

Awesome, Robin. :)

Hello, i am happy to meet you on this carpet ride. Your ancient Olive tree is enchanting. I love trees so much. Have you heard of the Festival of The Trees? I'm sure they would love you to join in the fun and share your pictures. Tomorrow is the Jewish tradition of Tu Bishvat - New Year for the trees, which is a festival of tree planting. How wonderful is that? xJ

I went to your shop--quite lovely. I kept going back to the White Aliasthus--something about that photo reminded me of my father who passed away in 2004. All the flowers were white at his funeral and everytime I look at white roses or flowers like the one pictured, I think of him. Nice blog and glad I found it through Mimi.

Merry meet, oh your photography is beautiful. I took a peek at your Etsy shop although your flower photos are gorgeous, I do have a fascination with "trees" and I would love to be the proud owner of your "Ancient Olive Tree" photo. It's just so beautiful. I too offer you an olive branch as well and thanks for offering such a wonderful giveaway. I will grab your button so I can follow your blog.

Happy travels.

What a great giveaway! Count me in! I love your photos! I'm having a hard time deciding between "Almond Blossoms Against a Bright Blue Sky" and "Butterly on an Almond Blossom." Although I love the olive tree photo (there's none like that in Australia!) it just wouldn't go with my decor...Hope you're enjoying your magic carpet ride so far!!
