The Mosque Clock giveaway winner

Well, I've made it safely home from a fantastic Eid Al Adha holiday in Lebanon - posts due shortly - and I have 19 metres of proper vintage fabric in tow. 19 metres! Of fabric from the 60s and 70s! From a dusty shop in Beirut! I love it. I am true fabric hound, I can sniff out the good stuff anywhere.

But for now, the most important thing is the winner of the fantastically kitsch mosque clock.

I've used a truly random way of selecting this winner. I decided that the hour of day I first heard a call to prayer upon my return, would determine the winner of the giveaway.

This morning, I was woken up at FIVE AM by the call to prayer, from the mosque down the road. This is no small mosque. It has one of the biggest fibreglass domes in the world, a chandelier made in Belgium that weighs as much as four elephants (true) and it can accommodate 5000 people. Suffice to say, it also has a very clear loudspeaker on the minaret.

So in line with my five am wakeup call from the mosque, the giveaway winner is commenter Number Five. Jennie, that's you! Please email me your postal address and I will put this piece of kitschy goodness into the mail for you.

Ah, where would we be without giveaways? I love them. And will be holding more in the leadup to Christmas, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled!

Thank you thank you thank you for not giving the clock to my friend Kaz. I just know she was going to give it to Mr Golightly. I also want pictures of all that fabric, dusty or not.... and stories, I want stories, and menus, and long involved anecdotes about how the camel stood on your foot... you know. Fess up!
