CLOSED: First Pirate Sweeps in 2018, (Round 8) PMs sent

As the very lucky first-time winner of the last round of this sweeps it is my privilege to host the next round.
First of all, I want to thank all participants of the last round for the enlightening books and generous gifts I received. I still might become a decent pirate... ;-)

Most of the following has been shamelessly copied from last round:

If you would like to enter:
1. First you post here by February 25th to enter.

2. Then you PM me with your mailing details and please put "Pirate themed sweepstake" in the subject line of your PM. You can also choose to enter as 'send only', then you don't have to send a PM.

3. I will draw names on February, 25th and I'll PM everyone with the name and address of the winner (the winner will be PM'ed with the name and address of the decoy).

4. You DO NOT have to send a book to the winner/decoy; just so we can keep postage affordable please make sure that you send something about pirates however loosely based it is. Gift ideas include a book, bookmark, magnet, keychain, mug coasters, cuddly toy, sweets, stationary, letter writing things. AS LONG AS ITS PIRATE THEMED!

5. Please don't let the winner know they have won, either by posting here or by PM. It's much more fun if the packages start arriving out of the blue!

6. As the packages start to arrive, the winner must journal the books & gifts in a timely fashion and also post here what they have received, as it's fun for everyone who's entered to see what the winner has got.

7. The winner will host the next competition within 1-2 months. If you know you will be unable to host the next round, please do not enter.
Let's keep this sweepstake going!

... should I give it more time or shall we just have two winners?
Profile Image
Well as there is two of us you stil techically have one decoy and one winner so there is no need for "two winners" and I would probably keep it open a bit longer

went to my post box, thinking I would find it empty since I got three things Tuesday, but instead there were four packages for me, two for the tombola in the Frenchspeaking group and two for this lovely Pirate Sweepstake.

Got a nice little pirate hat from bossmare and Chocolate money, anker-bookmark, pirate stickers and a book in French from bluezwuzl. (Und ja, ich lese in mehrere Sprachen, darunter auch in Französisch :-) )

After the book from Harobed82 the other day, let's see what the future brings :-)

Due to the "Beast from the east" snow storm aka Snowmaggedon my book will be delayed. The roads are to icey for me to get to the post office. Even the buses are not running its that bad
Profile Image
I hope to post my parcel tomorrow in Munich - if I'll ever get there. There was chaos with the underground and city trains the whole week...
Profile Image

My book...

... is on its way ;-)
Profile Image
So I've managed to get out in the slush and made it to the post office so my parcel is on its way.
