Giveaway!

Thank you for all the feedback you submitted to my 1 Million Pageviews post!

It sounds like most of you would like me to host a giveaway of one of Mr. Handsome's paintings. Great idea! It's going to take him a little bit of time to whip one up, so we will have to put that giveaway on the back burner. (He is currently working on paintings for two of his sister's birthdays.)

You have been such loyal readers that I would like to do a giveaway now, while we wait for the painting. I wanted to raffle off something with meaning, so I spent a few days thinking it over and came up with something that I think you all will enjoy: fancy hair clips! Feel free to keep them for yourself or give them as a gift to a friend.

One winner will receive a pair of Lilla Rose heart bloom bobby pins...


...And the other will receive a Lilla Rose felicity flexi clip (size small).


To enter, follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below. Two of the entry options are mandatory, and the others are optional, but the more you do, the greater your chances of winning.

The first mandatory entry option is to submit a comment telling me which hair clip you would prefer. The second is to visit each of the tabs below the blog header (Meet Ellie, DIY Wedding Planning, Recipes, etc) and search through the posts that are linked to on each of those pages. One of the posts has a message in hot pink at the very top. Simply submit the title of that post as a comment to this giveaway post. (Hint: It's in a post that is linked to in one of the first five tabs.)

This giveaway is open to all readers, but those under age 18 must have permission from their parent or guardian.

    I could not get the raffle widget to take any text, it just entered me with not having taken in the answers.

      Read the instructions and follow them and you will find the hot pink right at the top of the blog page where Ellie put them. I did this, have faith it is there, as Ellie said.

    Hi Ellie, thanks for doing this giveaway! Both hair clips are beautiful, but I think I like the flexi clip slightly better. The message is in the Video: Tutorial: Organizing Your Spice Cabinet post.

  21. Wow!
    1. I love your wedding dress after the alterations!
    2. I love your beautiful engagement/wedding ring set!
    3. The tent that was purchased for the wedding is huge and elegant!
    4. I just planted white wave petunias and blue lobelia in my hanging pots today. :) I added some red begonias too. Though I am not a flower person, I started hanging flowers from our porch last year.
    5. We recently threw a bridal shower for my cousin. It was chock full of pinterest ideas! Many were similar to your wedding decor. :)
    6. Thanks for a giveaway!
