Giveaway for October

Pin It Now!

Sorry I'm late for the giveaway this month. Lauren and I had the swine flu. Lauren had it worse than I did but we seem to be on the mend now. My son had it about a month ago so we've all gone through it now with no complications...thankfully!

My giveaway for this month is this cute little ceramic turkey that I picked up at Marshalls. It's smaller than it looks in this picture...it's about the size of a small teapot. If you would like to win this little guy just leave a comment below by midnight on Friday, October 16th. Due to shipping costs this is open to anyone in the U.S. or Canada. If you don't have a blog please be sure to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win!


You may have heard on the news, we're having a major storm here today! It's been pouring down rain for hours now. I just hope the roads aren't too flooded on my commute home from work tonight!

By hook or by crook; I'm the first to write in this book! Please enter me -- I'd proudly put Mr Turkey away until next
Canadian thanksgiving, but he'd get lots of love first!

Hi Cindy,
Please enter my name into your giveaway for Oct.
I live in Modesto and commute to Menlo Park every day for work. It started raining at 4:00am when I left the house this morning and by the time I arrived in Menlo Park it was pouring and its still pouring.The rain is just making all kinds of noise outside as runs down my office window. I kinda like it. Yes, but then there's the commute home and that will be another story.
Take care and drive careful,
Elizabeth

Debra "Deb" Dresden Disney-Dior said...

Hi Cindy! I'm a follower and yours is the third giveaway I've entered, in just about as many days.
Whenever I stop by your "home" I have to remind myself your name isn't Beatrix Potter. I'm quite certain there are bunnies, donned with ribbons, hiding behind your armoire, or maybe in your garden -- hiding in flowers behind your new yard conservatory.
All in all, I love being a guest here. Thank you for the many tours -- I've yet to catch you dressed in a robe with curlers -- and yes, thanks for the entry!
