My blogoversary's today!! AND THAT MEANS PRIZES!!

I have been putting off doing a few giveaways. I wanted to do one right after Jardin January was over, so I'm going to do it now! This one is going to one of the six people who linked in their posts for ALL THREE Jardin January check-ins...the inaugural Theme-a-licious post, the first check-in post, and the wrap-up post. The winner will receive some garden-related goodies.

And the winner is...Sherry!!! Please send me your snail-mail address and I'll get these into the mail for you! I may do another of these for March Madness...or other upcoming themes, you never know. =)

Next, I bought the awesome earrings on the left for myself for my birthday.
Aren't they cool?? The gears actually turn! They are made of some incredibly light wood, so even though they are nice and big, they don't weight much at all. Well, the company sent me the earrings on the right as a "sample", so I want to pass them on to one of you. These are even lighter than the gears! I think they'd be awesome with a little extra bead embellishment. I will include some other girly things with this giveaway. =)

Finally, inspired by Edgar's recent San Francisco giveaway, I'd like to do an Atlanta-based giveaway. I'm not sure what exactly will be in it, but it should be fun to put together. One thing you should tell me for sure...what kind of tea do you like?

So the rules...just leave a comment, that's it. Oh, and tell me if you'd like to be entered for the earring giveaway, the Atlanta giveaway, or both. I'll leave comments open until Easter and then draw a name for each.

ETA: Comments are now closed! I'll post the winner soon (in a new post). Thanks for playing!

I still think this should be spelled "blogiversary". Does anyone know why it's spelled with an "o"? Makes no sense to me.

Those are very cool earrings!
Congratulations on your blogaversary! Please put my name in the hat for the Atlanta giveaway :)

Happy Blogiversary! I would love to be entered into both giveaways! I am not picky when it comes to tea. :) Thanks!

I LOVE the gear earrings!! Please put me in for both giveaways (black tea, please....a little vanilla, but no fruity stuff!)

Erin (moviemuse) said...

Happy Blogiversary! No earrings for me (though the gear ones are super cool!), but am I allowed to enter the Atlanta giveaway if I live here? LOL Vidalia onions were the first thing that came to mind, even though they're more GA than Atlanta. Not sure everyone would appreciate them, though. Surely a peach something. Maybe a praline (again, more GA/Savannah that Atlanta, really), or Claxton Fruitcake? GWTW something? Fox Theater? GA Tech? The Varsity! You're the amazing party planner; just pretend you're planning an Atlanta themed party and go from there. (I'm going to pick your brain about a Japan/ninja themed party later.)

Happy Blogoversary! The earrings are lovely, but I don't think I'll participate in that giveaway; I don't wear earrings that often.

But please enter me to the Atlanta giveaway :-)

I'm a tea drinker and my all time favourite tea is Twinings' Earl Grey. I also like green tea with some lovely extras in it :-)

Happy blogiversary (it appears I also think it should be spelled with an "i"!) - the gear earrings are amazing, I love them!

I know nothing about Atlanta, so the giveaway sounds very intriguing - but I am not at all a tea drinker (and I'm English, how wrong is that?!)

First up ~ Happy, happy blogoversary! MANY happy returns. No clue about the "O" at all.

Congratulations to Sherry! I like giveaways you enter by just showing up ~ I often do "hidden" giveaways (secretly entering people who comment.) My little way of rewarding people who regularly read my blog.

I'm not big on earrings but enter me in the Atlanta giveaway, please. Iced tea, I have no preference except not instant, lol...hot tea is Earl Grey or even better, Lady Grey. That bergamot oil makes me swoon.

Happy Blogoversary! and Congratulations to Sherry!

Love those earrings! I'd love to be entered in your giveaways...thank you for having them! No tea preference, I love them all! :)

Terri said...

Happy Blogoversary! I'd like to be entered into the Atlanta drawing! I love all kinds of tea, but they HAVE to be decaffeinated as I am allergic to caffeine. Chamomile is my favorite!

Shebafudge said...

Congratulations on your blogi/blogo versary. I would like to enter the draw for the Atlanta one please! I don't have my ears pierced so the earrings would go to waste. They are so cool though.

Melanie said...

SUPER COOL earrings! Reminds me of a ring my husband wears, which you might have seen floating around. It's a set of gears laid into the band that you twist and turn? It's very bulky though. I like these earrings better!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I HAVE to have those earrings. Here is the evidence:
The only thing I know about Atlanta is the Alice Cooper song No Man's Land "I got a job in Atlanta in a mall playing Santa" so I guess I'll stick with the earring giveaway. Maybe add a leaflet to educate me about your town?

ps I always spell it with an "A" as in Blogaversary but that's just me!
