- To celebrate some blogging milestones.
- To give back after I have enjoyed winning fun prizes on others' blogs.
- To share some of the blessings I am privy to while living in "the land of not quite right...but the land of wonderful shopping."
- Did I mention this involves shopping?
- To find out who is reading my blog. What better way than to give away stuff?!? Seriously, if you have been lurking, I would love to meet you (or if you are someone I know, I would be honored to know you care enough to read about our lives).
- To thank all of you who DO read my blog and comment faithfully. You have been such an encouragement to me through your comments and through your own blogs.
Here's how it works...
- Leave me a comment on this post (or send me an email, email@example.com, to say you have been reading my blog) before June 1st.
- Make sure I have a way to contact you if you are not one of my "real life" friends.
- This giveaway is open to all...fellow bloggers, friends, family (even you, mom), spouses of friends who read my blog, first time commenters, people who link here from someone else's blog and are potential friends...
- I will give away the five prizes below as a minimum (randomly drawn from all commenters or emailers on June 1st).
- If I receive comments (or emails) from more than 50 people, I will give away another prize for every 10 after that.
- SO, at worst, your odds are 1:10 for winning a prize.
- I will do reminder posts occasionally before the 1st so that if you are not a regular reader of my blog but stop in occasionally, you will not miss out on the fun. I will also add a link to this post in my sidebar.
- I reserve the right to break the rules and add more prizes at a whim (or after a shopping spree with great finds that I can't resist!).
Here are the prizes...
I am giving away three pashminas (I don't know why, but I just love to say that word!). One with bright colors, one black with multi-colored stripes on the side, and one in fall colors. The baby girl (who WOULD NOT stay off of the pashminas) is not part of the prize.
And...I'm giving away two sets of pearl jewelry. Each set comes with a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. You have your choice of white, a light pink (not pictured here), or this dark purplish color.
