And the winner is…

As they say on television, we’ll let you know after these messages.
This is the first time we have had a Give Away on the blog and we are quite overwhelmed by the response. On the Norwegian page 42 people left messages and took 174 lottery tickets. Surprisingly many Americans had found their way to the English page. We wondered how they all managed to find us. There were 65 comments and 105 tickets. All in all, that’s 279 tickets.

We would like to thank everybody for their nice comments and welcome all our new followers to Hilltop House. We had our Give Away to celebrate that out blog had received 2000 visits. Now, we’re getting on for 4000. Obviously, that’s not much compared to the some blogs, but we appreciate every single visit.

Before we were going to draw the winner, we were excited to see whether the prize would go to someone in Norway or travel across the Atlantic. Husfruen was appointed the task of making almost 300 lottery tickets (Thank God for Excel), while Hubby had the honour of drawing. When the winner was proclaimed I almost suspected him of tampering with the tickets because the prize went to his old hometown on the Arctic Circle. But the man assures me there was no foul play, which means we can congratulate Lise who has the lovely blog Fossestua.

I also thought it was very nice that the prize should go to Lise who leaves so many nice comments here on our blog. I am also a regular reader of her blog, so I can recommend it to everybody.

Congratulations Lise! We hope you will enjoy the prize and that you’ll have a nice scented time in the bathroom with the L’Occitane products.
