summer giveaway!


So summer is on its way and what better reason to have a giveaway? As I mentioned, this involves one of my favorite things. Several of you suggested Albanian babies, which made me laugh. I also appreciated that books and wine came up. You know me too well! My darling Magda suggested that I was giving away corgis...now really, if I had corgis, would I give them away?  :)

Good guesses, but none were right. This giveaway involves stationary, really lovely and handmade stationary! I recently discovered Chloe's blog. Chloe owns and runs her own stationary company called English Tea Paperie, based in Richmond, VA. Her personalized pieces are all made by hand and she's generously agreed to help host a giveaway. 

How cute are these?

Beach (12 designs)



 Dessert Bar (3 designs)


Insects and Reptiles (5 designs)

Here are the rules-

There will be two winners; one winning a set of flats (5x7 flat note cards) and minis (3.5 x 5 mini flat cards), and the other, winning a set of flats. They'll be drawn randomly, by me, looked on by someone else, likely Steve, unless anyone else wants to volunteer  :)

Go over to Chloe's site for English Tea Paperie and have a look around at her products. Come back and tell me your favorite three designs. 

To enter, leave me a comment. 
For two entries, twitter about the giveaway.
For three entries, blog about it. 
For four entries, sign up to be a follower to my blog. If you already are, remind me.
Do all of the above, and you'll be entered five times. Do me a favor and comment each time, so it is easier to count the entries. 
For me to rig the contest so you win, come to my house with a corgi for me  :)

The contest will run until Sunday, May 31 at midnight. June 1, I will pick and notify the winners.

Also, Chloe has kindly offered a 10% discount to all of you lovelies, so please go have a look at her shop! When you click the link, the 10% will b e deducted at checkout. So, go fill your cart!

So, go shop, get entered and plan who you will send love letters to!

I love many - but if I have to pick one, I'd choose the preppy, beach, deck chair. I'm counting the days until my beach vacation in July...

These are so cute and fun! I love the hanging flip flops, cupcake, and the floral swirls (so into that hardcore! I just bought a shower curtain that looks like that pattern!)!

Cool giveaway! I like the palm tree, the black damask, and the claddagh. I think I would stay simple though and go with the black damask if I won!

Pink ballet slippers, black floral. See comment on earlier post, blah blah, I need a weekend!:)

Melanie said...

Ooo, I hope I win; I have a goal to write at least one note or letter every week for three months.

So hard to choose a favorite design. I think my favorites are the flower swirl, black damask, and the autumn leaves.

I subscribe to your blog through Google Reader, does that count as a follower? I don't see the follower widget on your side bar.

Very fun designs, I am a big fan of the floral swirls, damask, or lobster/crab designs.

Very cute...first, I found you by linking through Christy's A Lil Welsh Rarebit blog...

The stationary is right up my alley! My sister and I make a point to send at least one hand written letter a month! My favorites from the website:

1. Fancy Pants
2. Hydrangea Bush
3. Pink Daisy

Anna See said...

Love them! I'd pick blue ballet flats, a beach chair, or the pink bicycle, even though I don't ride!

Ladytink_534 said...

Oh! These are so pretty! My favorite English Tea Paperie (just love that name) item is the Hanging Flip Flop beach one, the Floral Swirls in the artistic line, and the cupcake in the gourmet chef line.

What a cute giveaway! I like the damask design, the flats, and the cupcake.

Okay, I'm dumb. I don't see the "follower" widget on your blog. I'm sure there's another way to become a follower, I just can't figure it out. :)

magda said...

So I'm going to juuuuuust squeak in on the deadline here. It's been a tough choice choosing just three! These designs are so cute, and I love that they're done by hand. Not enough things are anymore.

So, my picks.
1. shamrock (obviously, knowing me).
2. cupcake (see above).
3. flip-flops (because they're so cute! and pink and blue and marvelously coupled. Oh, all the things I wish I had).

I'm so glad I found chole. The platinum visa, however, not so much. Heh.

ps. you're in my reader; does that count? Can I follow if I'm using wordpress?

Janssen said...

I subscribe, of course :)

I love the Classy Shoe, the floral swirls, and the sailing ship ones the best. So lovely!

for the love of pictures said...

Great giveaway :)

Your blog is great, btw - and I am a follower too.

Have a lovely day!

Beauty of Argument said...

Thank you for reminding me! I got completely sidetracked with silly work when I tried to sit down and enter this before. Consider this one entry!

I'd go with the Shamrock, personally. :-)

Already a follower of your blog, of course. ;-)
