I've always wanted to do a give away... have actually won two myself over time... Won my wonderful "Blog Button" that Jen made me (isn't it great!!! applause!!!) & I also won some boot organizer boxes for my closet on another occasion! Give aways are always fun.... so I was going through my house & ran across things I never used or had two of so I thought - hey, in honor of Valentines Day & that I'm coming up to my 500th post... 500??? Seriously??? ... yep! .... I was going to do a give away. So what is it....

First - the best thing - I bought one myself - its a Calendar - but not ANY calendar. Its a calendar that doesnt have days... just dates.... What's that purpose? you can put birthdays & anniversaries & keep them every year - I have mine right next to my yearly calendar... no more forgetting! LOVE THIS! Its made by DaySpring so it has Bible verses on the bottom as well.

Also - a great book - I have this same book - but I have it as a different title. The one I have is called "Fairy Tale Brides" - but its seriously the same book.... dont know how that happened... but its the cutest book - especially for Valentines day. It takes old fairy tales like Snow White & makes it into modern times. There are like 4 or 5 short stories in there of different "princess fairy tales"...

With a book - you need a great book mark!! I love this book mark. Bought a few for Christmas presents one year & had this left over. Great for a Bible too!

And finally - some INCREDIBLE gloves.... I bought these from Pampered Chef to help Breast Cancer awareness.. but I'm not a glove user - they make my hands sweat.... so they've been tucked away & never used - but they look so old fashion with long polka dot sleeves on them... adorable! For all you apron fans out there - this would be perfect to go along!

So what do you have to do? Just comment... simple! And like all the other give aways - if you follow me, let me know & I'll put in two names for you... & if you post this giveaway on your blog, another two names!!!

The drawing will be - of course, VALENTINE'S DAY!!! Next weekend! Enjoy!

  19. I thought I posted, but I must have hit a wrong button. Any way, I would love to win. Pick me, pick me, pick me!
    Would love the book and calendar. The gloves, I am sure my granddaughters would use when they help me clean. They do not like to get their hands wet, you know. I think it has something to do with the fingernails.
    500 posts? Wow!! I am working towards 200 and thinking I should have a giveaway too.
    Gotta go post on my blog now.

  20. Forgot to mention that I'm a follower :o)

  21. Did not get a post on about your contest until today. Any of course I am a follower, who isn't for heavens sake?
    By the way, I hired a granddaughter to help me with house cleaning so I will honestly need the gloves. I am sure I will give her the toilet detail. She needs to learn how to keep her own clean, and besides I am tired of cleaning them. (kidding)
