100th Post Giveaway!!


Hello to all my lovely readers! As a way of saying "thank you" for your constant inspiration, encouragement, and feedback, I am having a giveaway to celebrate my 100th post. I can't believe it has gone by so quickly! Since I have holiday gifts on the brain, I decided to do a "gift list" inspired giveaway, which basically means it includes three items that I love to give or receive: a little something for the house, a bottle of yummy perfume, and a unique piece of jewelry.

**************************************************************************


The rules are simple:


1. Leave a comment on this post no later than Wednesday, December 5th.


2. Tell your friends -- spread the word!


The winner will be picked at random and notified on the 5th. We will make shipping arrangements privately via e-mail. [and if you live on the other side of the world from me, you might have to be patient, because I will probably use the inexpensive shipping method].


Sound good??


***************************************************************************


Here are the things the giveaway will definitely include [and perhaps there will be another one or two little things thrown in for fun]. Keep it all for yourself or give a few things away for gifts!


* One Baby Grobal Planter in Turquoise [the one on the right in the photo]: A cute, stylish planter that doesn't require a green thumb -- and it's designed by the amazing Karim Rashid! A few people on my personal holiday list will be getting one of these as well. Go to Delight.com for more info on the Grobal.



*One Chocolovers 1.7 oz. eau de toilette spray [by Italian perfumery Aquolina] -- Spicy, sweet , and chocolately. I get so many compliments when I wear this. Visit this Sephora.com link for details on Chocolovers.




*Vintage gold-dipped leaf necklace -- I purchased two similar necklaces at an estate sale. This is such a cool necklace --I wear the other one all the time. It has such a delicate, organic shape.


Good luck!!!!
