Give away time......

So my life.  Busy.  With a capital B.  A big capital B. :)

We've been gone....then back....then gone again...then expecting puppies.... and Thanksgiving.....then feeling guilty about not posting in awhile.  Then feeling more guilty when I log onto my blog roll and drool over postings from all you ladies for an hour...when I could totally be posting! :)

Anyway....well, my little Lucybell or "Tink" is about to have puppies!  Her due date was Sunday....and she's still not had them yet.  I have a feeling we're going to wake up sometime in the middle of the night to little yelps!  Lucy is a boxer, in case you are wondering the breed.  The sweetest girl ever!  I can feel them moving in her belly which is just the coolest feeling in the world!

SO on to the good stuff.  I'm finally doing my giveaway!  I'm so excited about it!  So here is what is up for grabs:

-  A gorgeous Christmas bottlebrush wreath!
I didn't take this picture, but it looks a lot better than the one I took from my phone!  http://www.westbrookcottage.com in case you're wondering...and yep, go look at the beautiful stuff she's got!







-  A pair of fun socks guaranteed to have either a bow, a little flower, or some buttons!  MY choice, a fun surprise for your little package.  And trust me, they will be adorable!

-  A $25.00 E-certificate to Ruche, the best clothing store around!  It's like Anthropologie, only with more palatable prices....much more.....  :)  Here's my favorite outfit right now...


 

-  A while ago, I found a Christmas banner on Etsy that I fell in love with!  Rather than spend the money on it, I decided to try to duplicate it on my own.  I am throwing one in for the lucky winner that says "Joy."  Here's a shoddy close up of the first one I made...



So all in all:  A gorgeous wreath, some cute comfy socks to wear with your stylin' boots, a $25.00 gift certificate to the most awesome online store, and a vintage Christmas banner handcrafted by moi.  I hope you enjoy this! 

Here are some ways to get an entry.....just a couple :)

1.  Post a comment with your name and email or blog link...
2.  Become a follower and let me know in your comment for another entry....
3.  Get yet another entry for posting about this giveaway on your blog...
4.  And one more if you add my blog button on your page...
5.  If you mention this on twitter, facebook, or other social network, let me know...
6.  Remember to brush your teefs.  ;) ok ok just threw that one in for fun.

Don't forget to let me know where/how you entered when you comment!

Thats 5 chances to win....

Giveaway ends Saturday, December 5th at noon!  Hurry hurry!  Love you guys!  Oh and this giveaway is featured on free!grechen as well!

Welcome back stranger - I was beginning to wonder if you'd disappeared under the snow! Just grabbed your button - I'm impressed - I've no idea how to make one! I'll post a link on to my blog tomorrow as my computer is still playing up and I am struggling to use my son's laptop right now so will do it in work lunchtime. I'm not too worried about winning as postage to the UK would cost more than the freebie no doubt but still want to support all my good friends in blog land!
