A quickie for my birthday . . .

Giveaway Alert!!!

So, I start to change over calendars and come to realize that TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY!  Remember last year when I officially changed my birthday to July?  I was tired of blizzardy, right-after-the-holidays, 'I got you a bigger gift for Christmas that includes your birthday', nobody feels like going out because it's so cold birthdays.  I liked my birthday celebration in July.  I liked it alot!  But, I wanted to do something for my January birthday too so I'm celebrating it with YOU!

Since it is January and my brain is still in 'vacation' mode, I didn't think what fun thing I could do that would bring you all to my blog and marvel over it.  I'm busy purging (isn't that what we all do in January?) so I thought I would just stuff this box with . . . well, stuff.  You don't care what is really in it, do you?  As long as YOU are the winner?  I promise I won't make you take my old clothes that I've been saving for years (I'll never get into those sizes again and who wants to wear denim skirts again anyway).  You won't get the mauve and light blue country-style decorations that graced my home at one time.  The collection of pig related items - forget it!   

Only the good stuff for my friends!


If you want, you could post this photo on your sidebar.  I'll give you my undying appreciation and maybe a little sumpun, sumpun extra will be in the box for you if you win.  Oh, and an extra chance too!


If you follow me, yup, you guessed it . . . you will get another extra chance!  Maybe the 200th follower will get a bit of love! 


But first, you must all leave me a comment!  I'll contact you sometime next week if you win.  You can comment up until I pick someone!

Good luck, my lovlies!

Edited ~~ comments are now closed.  As soon as I figure out how to show the random generator thingy, I'll post the winners!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

I have a birthday in January and so could relate to all those excuses or my very favorite: "I forgot". LOL........And Bobby G. is usually so worn out from trying to figure out what to get me for Christmas that he always just ask me what I want for my birthday. The answer is always the same: "I want to go on an antiquing trip." Funny,.... I never get that present. Anyway....for all those reasons I think I should win this give-away....don't you? :) xoxo

Happy Birthday Connie Girl!
You are too funny! Maybe I WANT the Mauve and Blue Decor! Okay,,,,,,maybe not so much!
I did the hearts and Bunnies though, not the pigs,although, Wait a minute, My EX-husband got the White Ceramic Pig Head/Towel holder in the Divorce, the Pig,,errr,the Cad!
Well, I always need to "Purge" and what, pray tell did Shell do Today????? She went Shopping! HA!
New Top, New Jacket, New Tunic, Sox, a lipstick and THEN I went to the Craft Stores and the Thrift store. But, hey, I hit the Mall about 2 times a year,,,whether I need to or not!
And, the Craft Stores? Those were supplies okay? I bought the super duper Glue Gun at Joanne's that has the incredible Micro Tip---I used one at Silver Bella and LOVED it!
Anyway, I'm rambling and of COURSE I'll post your giveaway on my sidebar,,,,,and Duh,,,I'd follow you anywhere. So I'm just doing the one comment. I'm downsizing for the New Year! HA!

My love to you my Dear and may the next year be full of Happiness, good health and creativity!

Love you to Pieces!
Shell

"Happy Birthday to You"!!! My two youngest sons are 2/2&2/3, So I know the dilemma of too close to Christmas AND WINTER STORMS! We did it ourselves, we'd get the presents WITH the Christmas stuff and hold it for their birthdays, AND we even combined their birthdays, hehe! My oldest sons birthday is exactly a week after 4th of July, and we always combined him into that(Oh Well)! I'm a FOLLOWER AND I've posted your giveaway on my sidebar too, SO enter me "twice"! LOVE the "BOX"!!! I'd LOVE to have you as a FOLLOWER TOO, if you'd like!!! I LOVE company!
Hugs to you Birthday Girl!
Donna
