Popular Penguins You Want My Penguin or Pinguin?

First and foremost who won the heart ?? Amy you will be sealing your fate with a heart shaped brooch ... look out for the post person. See her stuff here ...

This week to celebrate the next 50 Popular Penguin books I'm giving away a wild little flightless bird ... all you need to do is leave me a comment.

Win this Penguin !!!




I have only just started saying the word 'penguin' correctly, I coped a lot of shit for a long time over my pinguin pronunciation. It just sounds cuter. But if I am allowed to bitch slap people who say 'what do you pacifically need?' I have no right to be bandying my pinguin pronunciation about.

Now if you are in Bris Vegas this weekend and need a craft, art, coolness fix then you are in luck. The BrisStyle Indie markets are on Saturday 4th ...


Then myself and some more talented Brisbane ladies will be at the Young Designers Market on Sunday 5th. Come down say hi ... If you mention this blog I will give you a free heart with any purchase ...

no shit ...


For a chance to win some really cool gear from other BrisStyle gals check out the BrisStyle blog ... here

So anyway ... get out and buy a Popular Penguin ... They are so cool with their simple covers and wondrous stories inside. I am up for And the Ass Saw the Angel by my little rock God, Mr Cave, then for the main meal I'll be One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and for dessert I'll be sinking my pulp fiction teeth in Dracula.

oh wow! thank you! i never win anything! i am so happy right now. i will be stalking the post box all week :) that penguin brooch is really cute, i can't wait to see more of your lovely creations on saturday! i feel i will need to buy a deer off you, to keep my wolf, owl, bird, and now heart, company. keep up the awesomeness, it's inspiring x

Ooh, definitely try Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons. Funny and you will avoid the woodshed afterwards, just in case! Also, it's about my beloved Sussex, tho' a lot further back in time than when I was growing up!!!

With that one I would go for Shakespeare's Sonnets - I do like a sonnet and Farewell my Lovely, a Raymond Chandler classic and typical of it's time and culture. The text is sharp and smart too.

Pinguin or Penguin wotsit matter? Some are pinguins and some are penguins and others still are divine penguines!

When someone asks 'What pacifically do you mean?' they are asking for a peaceable reply, not necessarily a specific one.

Oh there is nothing cuter then a chubby little waddling penguin, or even a pinguin which makes them even more adorable!

Martta said...

Oh wow! I found my way here from amy's blog and just commented about how adorable the animal brooches are. I better enter the give a way then. So hello I think your penguin is mighty pretty. In Finnish it's pingviini. Maybe you could use it instead of penguin or pinguin just to mix it up a bit more.

At the moment I'm reading My Family and Other Animals from the popular penguins series. It's a feel good book, but not in the mushy way.

What a cool post, love the penguins, the covers just sucked me in last time I was in borders and blew my budget, oh well, it was worth it. See you tomorrow!

I love penguins so much. My friend and I have a joke because we want a baby panguin and to carry it around with us.

Good luck at the markets! I love those penguin classics - some of them I read for English at school.

See, I just don't get the 'pacifically' thing. I've heard a bunch of times before, but why is 'specifically' so darned tricky? I reckon you'd just be sounding uber kiwi when you say your pinguin...

ah..penguins...am sure the books and the others don't mind...your language is love-coated so all is ok :-)

'n speaking of Cold Comfort Farm Griffin...Sophie (my daughter) won a copy..penguin copy of said tale...she said she'd like to see something nasty in the woodshed...

love the lady 'n her friend ..eyeballing..
