Shed of the Year 2009

The voting has started for Shed of the Year 2009. I didn't know about this competition until it was too late last year, but this year 'the shed' is included.

Please go here to vote for 'Grumpy's Palace' to give a miniature schnauzer (and me) a chance to get somewhere in this competition. He's never won anything before, and apart from a box of chocolates, oh yes, and a few trophies at horse shows many moons ago, I haven't won much either.

In fact I've just spotted a dog t-shirt here for Grumps, what do you think? No? Oh, okay then.

Debs said...

jj - it was probably me being useless with the link.

Thanks for the vote.

l-plate - thanks so much for voting. Don't worry, I shan't be buying the t-shirt for Grumps, he would only eat it, and I wouldn't blame him.

anna - no he does not, :)

Thanks so much for voting for us.

melissa - thank you. As they say, you have to be in it, to win it.

Shirley Wells said...

I've voted. Good luck!

As for the t-shirt, why not? Now that he's a dog of sheds, maybe he needs that very shirt.

Denise said...

I've voted and I really hope you win, tis a lovely shed. It seems to be a competition that always gets a lot of radio interest as well, have heard the winners on BBc Radio 2 and 5 before.

HelenMHunt said...

Have voted, and I think definitely yes for the shirt. Do they do it in a cat size I wonder?

Fia said...

Voted.
Is Grumpy claiming expenses? He's one gentleman I'd be happy to see doing so.

Calistro said...

Voted. LOVE your shed!

calistro - thanks so much. I love it there too, and would happily spend more time in there if I could.

I love those too, sweet aren't they?

MelRox said...

good post...

KatW said...

My vote is cast for your wonderful shed. The inside of your writing shed looks much nicer than mine - full of creativity. I am inspired to work harder on my decor.

Kat :-)

Debs said...

MelRox - thanks for your comment, and vote.

Kat - My shed is one hell of a mess inside (worse than when the picture was taken even), but I love the outside of yours, its so pretty.

Troy said...

I've just voted for your (Grumpy's) shed. There were some very smart sheds on display and also some rather, shall we say, sheddy sheds.
Sorry I haven't called here too often recently - SOOO busy with the election - so looking forward to 5th June, win or lose!

Debs said...

troy - thanks so much for the vote, best of luck for the 5th June.

Debs said...
