Tenth Anniversary Tin Foil Toasting!

 Hello, and welcome to this double celebration event! Yes, not only is it the 10th anniversary of this blog-
 And my arrival in the 21st century!
 Yes, that goes part-and-parcel with the blog thing. Now quiet while I get on with this.
 Where was I? Oh, yes: Not only is it the 10th anniversary of this blog, but we will be revealing the winner of the Tin Foil Top Hats and Tiaras Competition!
 Before we announce the winner, we'd just like to thank you all for coming, and for your continued support over the years.
 Yes, whether you're an occasional visitor or a long-time lurker, a Flying Monkey or a Coven member, or even The Mistress-
 Who has been with us almost since the beginning. Although, she was called MJ then...
 I was getting to that! Ummm... Yes. So a big thank you to everyone who has put-up-with and played in this little corner of the Blogworld.
 Right, then. On with the show!

 The comment and email votes have been amalgamated and counted and I'm pleased to announce that every single eligible tin foil hat was voted for. However, the clear winner of the 2015 Tin Foil Top Hats and Tiaras Competition, with twice as many votes as the next highest entry, is...

LX Lola, with
Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered!
Here we see Lola - obviously the brains behind LX's operation - modelling her high-fashion hat while perusing my blog.

 Congratulations Lola! Your adorable little witch hat is the 2015 Tin Foil Top Hat and Tiara champion! Your (yet to be determined) prize will be mailed to you shortly - I'll email LX to arrange it.

 A huge thank you to everyone who took part this year. Your creations were truly wonderful, and we are absolutely thrilled with the efforts you put in. That wasn't supposed to be sarcastic, by the way...

 Now. The bar's open, so let's get this party started!



  1. Congratulations to Lola and LX (I suppose we do have to acknowledge her human slave after all, it's only polite).

    Rightly deserved!


  2. I think Geiger and Sporran might both have voted, but I'm sure the numbers wont require a re-run.
    Well done, everyone.

  3. Congratulations on 10 years of blogging Mr Device... I don't know how you keep it up

    And well done Mr Lax on your creative and glorious entry.
    Lola... I'm sure will claim all the kudos and be expecting a nice treat of some sort for all her hard work in helping you take the win... congrats to both of you

  4. OMG! OMG! OMG! Lola thanks everyone for their votes. She is also demanding tuna for the next week.

    Happy 10th! Thank you Mr Device for hosting the event. And congrats to everyone for a job well done.

  5. congratulations, lola!! xoxo

    and congratulations to you, IDV!!! xoxoxoxo

  6. First off, Congrats to Lola for the win!!!! I hope Lx is hanging in there. Second a huge congrats for 10 long years!!! I just hope I'm here for the next ten. Third, I read in a dirty place somewhere your 6'5" for fun!!!!! Can you confirm this? And where are tickets sold for the ride? *wonders over to get another gin*

    1. I can't imagine what kind of dirty place you might have picked up that little tidbit?!

      ::studiously ignores the Infomaniac::

      It is true, though.

      And tickets can be found next to the gincuzzi. Handy, eh?

  7. Congratulations to our winners Lola and LX, and to Mr. DeVice for entertaining and even sometimes educating us for TEN years, minus the occasional well-deserved time-out.

    I remember the first time I set the heel of my stiletto upon this blog and it's been a treat (and sometimes a trick) ever since. I would soon start up my own palace of ill repute following your lead.

    LX and Lola outdid anything I could have come up with this year. In fact, you ALL did.

    A toast to our host and to all who sail in him!

    And LX, you can now stop asking me, "Did I win yet?"

  8. Sorry, I'm late.
    Congratulations to Lola and LX ! Well done - and well deserved !

    And happy anniversary to IDV - it's good that you are in blogland !

  9. Thank you all for your anniversary congratulations! And for making this Tin Foil Hat compo another success - Very well done to LX!!!


Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
