work in progress and caption contest results

I’m working on a little group of things – bats and perching owls mostly. I’ll put some of these things in the shop next week – most likely in time for delivery  (in the US)  before Christmas.

And The winners  of the first ever ann wood handmade caption contest !

The voter chosen at random ( # generated by is:

comment # 15 – Geiger. Who is apparently a black cat with a recently replaced hip.
And for a variety of reasons I have decided to award birds to the top 2 vote getters and those winners ( it was very close) are:
7. Lauren
“Now witness, dear friends, as David Blainebird prepares to package himself alive for 6-10 business days! Don’t try this at home!”

8. Cari
Darlene had told only her best friend, Eliza, but by the time her mail-order groom was set to arrive, the whole town had heard about it.
Thank you and Happy Holidays to all participants ! (winners – I’ll be in touch for address etc.)

P. S. – Another first ever for me – I’m going to teach a workshop!! (boat making). I’m something beyond excited about this and plan to go on and on about it next week but you can find more info right now here if you like.

    Congratulations to the winners! I’m honored to have been a finalist & thank those who voted for me.

  2. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! You have no idea how excited I am!!!!!!!! 😀

  3. Oh what fun! Ann, I’m so excited to have a little bird. Thank you for choosing two of us! And you have some great blog commenters (and voters). Such a clever group.

  4. Jennifer Cheek-Payan

    That was such a fun contest! Congratulations to the winners! Great captions!!!

  5. Congrats to you winners! Here’s hoping Geiger is not a bird-eating sort of feline. And sort of wish the class wasn’t at Squam, though I’m certain that’s lovely–I can’t get away for that long.

  6. Congrats on the boat making workshop planned. Lucky people who will be able to attend – Australia is just a little too far away!

  7. Your creations are wonderful!!!! I love your misterious and rare animals!! I hope you understand my bad English.

    A greeting from Spain,
