Fox Necklace Giveaway

   SPRING!! It's gorgeous. It's warm, but not too warm, and the sun light is so, so pretty. I always get seriously motivated around this time of year because the light fills me with energy and makes me just want to DO THINGS. I really wanted to celebrate spring somehow, but beyond taking complete advantage of the motivation it brings me, I'm not really sure how.
   Then I decided that, for lack of any better ideas, a little giveaway would do! The prize is simple but appropriate: my super popular fox jar necklace! I'm also offering 15% off across the shop with the code SPRINGBIRD until May 10th, so if you don't win you can always buy the necklace at a lower price!

   The giveaway is open worldwide from today until April 30th. The winner will be picked at random and contacted directly, given 72 hours to respond or another winner will be chosen. All entries are collected via Rafflecopter, as usual, but all entries are, of course, optional. The cost of shipping comes out of my own pocket, all you need to do is enter!

EDIT: I'm really glad I added 'fox trivia' to the entry form. You guys have given such great responses! I knew a fair bit about foxes to begin with, but I quickly learned more! Keep it up, it's awesome!




The giveaway is now closed and the winner has been contacted directly via the email address assigned to their rafflecopter account or facebook account, so please check your spam folders!

  7. Vixens are occasionally assisted in rearing their cubs by a non-breeding sister or a female cub from a previous litter. These ‘aunts’ gain valuable experience which helps them to rear their own litter successfully the next season. Occasionally there can be two dog fox’s associated with one vixen.

  8. When I was a teenager the house I lived in had fields at the back. We had a lot of wildlife nearby and quite often animals would come into our garden. One morning we could hear strange noises, almost like a babies cry; we found three tiny fox cubs. We left them for a while, and kept an eye out for their mum, but she didn't come back. We put them in a cardboard box with a blanket. took them inside and tried feeding them milk through medicine syringes. The next day someone from a wildlife rescue charity came and collected them. They were gorgeous, and I have a real love of foxes to this day.
