... Guess the cost of my Pumpkin! ... CLOSED!!!!!

So ... I'm over 30 and never celebrated Halloween. There - you have it. Being Australian it is a real non-event. While in the past few years the supermarket chains have tried to push more and more Halloween stuff out the doors but it's not happening.

Originally I was going to say "Guess how many Trick or Treaters I get this year for a prize" but really if you said a big fat zero you'd be on the money. In the past 5 years I might have had 2 Trick or Treaters ... in total.

Last week I saw my first Halloween pumpkin of the season appear in the shop. Now ... we have pumpkins here but they just aren't big fat round and orange. Queensland Blue pumpkins are the most common round ones and ... well like the name says - they are blue on the outside [well a light blue/grey].

I was excited to see the first few orange pumpkins for October filter through last week - we don't often get them ... and instead of writing something snarky on FB about it I thought I'd make you guys do the guessing first on the cost!

So this giveaway is really simple ...all you need to do is ... Guess how much this Pumpkin costs!
The closest guess wins! Easy! Any follower on Blogger or FB can enter ... there are no extra entries for following me on Facebook or Twitter or posting about this giveaway [but feel free too anyway! I'll love you for it!]

If it helps you the answer will be in Australian Dollars and Cents 
Currently $1 US = 96c Australian [not much in it!]
Even if smart Aussies figure out the shop I was in - you still don't know the weight - ha ha ha

The Prize will be 3 of my favourite polishes - wrapped up and delivered to your door with love! I can't offer you anything Halloweeny but I can offer you a chocolate Caramello Koala! Nom nom nom! [Picture of the prize will be shown on the post where I announce the winner]

Facebook Followers who don't have a GFC are encouraged to enter aswell!

*Fine Print fun*
This giveaway is open to all readers of Shatter me Claire

[I'll accept entries until everywhere in the world is past this day!]

Winner/s will be whoever picks the correct price or closest too the correct price.

I shouldn't have to say this but just incase - all products are brand new and untried.

Also all items were purchased by me with my own $$

Multiple entries or multiple accounts will be excluded - please play fair!

  1. Great idea for a giveaway, My daughter asked to get one of them pumpkins the other day but having never celebrated halloween, the answer was no - she was most disappointed

  2. I've carved QLD Blue ones in the past - don't listen when they tell you that you can't and it's too difficult! :D I don't even have any special tools either - a brand new $2 veggie knife is all you need! They are great for kids parties if you have them late - I did a Dora at one stage that turned out ok.

  3. I am in the US and I would love to see a blue pumpkin. I have only seen white, orange and green.

  4. This is such a fun giveaway. Kudos for originality. Love the idea *crosses fingers* I hope I win!

  5. Thanks guys! I wanted to do something different :) Oh and blue pumpkins look like this link -


Thanks for the comments - they always make me feel loved :)
