***CANDY NOW CLOSED***
I had such an exciting week this week when Game Of Thrones came to visit!
They film a lot of the series in Northern Ireland and I knew they had been close by before but I had never seen where they were filming before. Then they approached my Daddy to see if they could use some of our land to shoot some scenes! I couldn't believe it when he told me that they were coming!
They arrived last Monday evening and they used the yard at my grannies house as their base unit and did the filming just up the road.
We went to the place the day before they started shooting to see what was going on and they were busy preparing the set with props etc.
I am trying to be very careful in showing pics as HBO are very strict about that, but I'm just showing a few of the things that could be seen at any time (if you know what I mean)
Here's a bit of the yard at my grannies house and some of the many trucks that were parked in it. The first caravan was for one of the stars of the show and the second one was the directors. There is another one somewhere for the other main star who was there and then there were 2 other actors too. It's so hard to not give anything away! lol!
There are also trucks here for make-up and costumes. There's more for hair and catering on over. That's my little sister and her friends by the wall. Not stalking at all! lol!
Here is a picture of the beautiful location where this all took place. I'm so lucky to have grown up in such a beautiful part of the world!
Here are the signs showing where the set is - and of course, there had to be road works!
Here is the bridge on our land where they did some filming. I have used an image that shows the bridge as it is.
And there is a little house on the land that was also used. We were so lucky to be allowed in to look around before the filming and see all that was done to it. I can only show the doorway as there were a lot more props around the house than at the bridge!
This is me and my brother and sister.
On the first day of the shoot, we went to the set when they were filming at the bridge and we got to see a few scenes. I was amazed at how many people are involved in the whole process and how friendly they all were! We weren't allowed to talk to the cast though and unfortunately didn't get to meet them as their schedule was so tight, they did manage to sign a couple of things for us but the whole experience was fantastic and something that I won't forget for a long time!
So all this excitement has gotten me in a good mood! I thought it was only fair to share the excitement and good mood by having a little blog candy!
I don't know how I managed it, but I mistakenly ordered two sets of the summer stamps from the Magnolia Stamp Club. So I thought I'd give the spare set away - and as "Winter Is Coming" :) I thought I'd better get a move on! lol! The set consists of six full size characters, six additional stamps (like shells and a map etc) and two sentiments. Please note - these stamps are in sheets and have not got the foam backing included for mounting on blocks.
I also happened to buy two of the same set of Spellbinders "Decorative Labels One" dies a while back so I'll give the spare set away too! :)
So all you have to do to win the candy above is to follow me and leave me a comment saying which of the options on the left is your favourite way to follow. It's a bit of a pain having to have so many different ways to follow, so if I can get rid of one that would be great! This isn't an absolute requirement to win the candy, it's more just for my information!
I'd also like you to put the above picture on your side-bar linking back to here so as to spread the word.
Lastly, enter your name etc in the linky below so as it's an easy job for me to pick a winner!
One entry per person!
The candy will stay open until just before midnight on the 31st August and I'll announce the random winner shortly after that.
Thanks for looking and good luck!
