Birthday Giveaway..cause I wanna :)


So I was thinking that now that I have turned 50..and I had such a lovely birthday yesterday..I would do a giveaway today. To kick of the joy of another decade..here is a gift from me to you!

So you know I adore Fall and frankly am quite fond of Winter too. I do love the snow. The chilly weather is upon us already and rather than my usual artwork giveaway..I was thinking that maybe a bit of knitting would be just the thing.



So here is the treat...a delightfully soft, 100% acrylic, hand knitted scarf by me..a shorty with a pocket to tuck the end in. You know I hate stuffing my scarf down my coat and having it all bunch up..and make me look like I have more extra pounds than I really do. I also dislike it when I bend over and it comes undone..cause when you are having a snowball fight..ya just can't have the scarf in the way!! Ya know what I am saying? So I created a scarf that is just long enough to keep you cozy and tucks into a little pocket and stays put!



Annnndddddd...if I get enough folks to add their name to the pot..I will add a second little treat..hand knitted something by me..for a second lucky winner!!

Here are the rules....
1. Leave me a comment on this post..tell me what your favorite season is for one chance to win.
2. For a 2nd chance ..follow me here. If you already do..then you get a second chance too!
3. For a third chance to win...post a like to my giveaway on your blog..make sure you come back and let me know you did!!
4. Follow my Let Fly E- Course Blog for a fourth chance to win! If you already do you get a fourth chance too!

I will pick a winner at 9am Sunday the 17th, 2010 and the winner will have 24 hours to get back with me. I will post a winner here and a comment on the winner's blog! So....good luck all!!

Happy Friday!!

Woot Woot! I LOVE this give-away. So pretty. So practical! So perfect for fall!

Okay....
1. My favorite season is Spring. I love the vibrancy of color found in brand new leaves, I love the "lightness" that people begin exhibiting when they walk, I love seeing winter jackets being replaced by lighter weight ones, and I love the sound of laughter that if much more prominent in Spring than in winter!

2. Already follow you, and I am glad that I do!

3. I will get back to you when I have figured out how to post a like - will a comment on my blog do?

Coincidentally, my blog today is all about crafts as well, so this is perfect timing. Okay - I am off to post a link to your site on mine.

Love and hugs to you lovley lady!

Aaaw Sarah. I know very well that Renee loved you so much. She chided me when I made a smart alecky comment about your drawing which she used in one of her Christmas posts. She knew that I was joking and teasing her but she chided me anyway, being all protective of you. Hahahhaha! She was wonderful. Thank you.

OKAY! It's your birthday too? You are the fourth one I know who is celebrating her birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sarah! 50 is wonderful!!! Have a wonderful time.

50 years on Earth! That's awesome! Well here's to 50 more years to you, huh! :) Which reminds me, I'm turning 20 in a while - 2 decades on Earth.

Lovely scarf! But we don't have Winter or Fall (I live in Southeast Asia!) here, so.

Goodluck with your contest! :)

Me for fall.....
when the winds blow...
when the leaves turn gold...
copper.....
red.....
brown....
and cover the lanes like carpets...
when the elk bugle...
when the moose get stupid...
when everyone goes into rut...
when the bears eat anything....
when the fields fill with geese...
when we cut the gardens down....
when the crops are done....
and we drink warm drink by the stove.....
and eat the fruits of our love...

I love the fall...for all the 'flavors'

spottedwolf said...

Happy Birthday! I love winter the most because I can wrap up all warm and justify drinking hot chocolate!

P.S. your work is always an inspiration.

So glad you had a great birthday. The photo in your header is the one you sent me. It is still on the wall in the kitchen in the red frame and it will be on the wall at the new place too. We will move on Oct 30 which is my hubby's birthday. My favorite season in spring with all the new growth and time to plant things.

Happy 50th! Such a good age. I do love autumn best, I think, with its invigorating chill and riotous colours.
