Well, I debated and finally the urge to give something to some random stranger won over! I don't have many readers here, I don't blog very often, but I do love to create and share! So after a morning filled with looking at tons of fantastic blogs (all of which are far fancier and do much more than my little blog) and entering tons of giveaways, I decided to host my own!
I love owls...I really really do. I have a corner of my living room dedicated to Doctor Who, Bublitchki Fest (more on that another day), and Owls!!
|Bublitchki Fest (a family festival celebrating our heritage)|
I really love owls, and have discovered a new found love for birds in general. So when we take our son hiking, my husband and I like to look for birds that we haven't seen before as well as any bird, really. This past weekend we saw Red-Winged Black-Birds, American Goldfinches, a Blue Heron, and a Barn Swallow! Neither of us had seen the Barn Swallow before and it was beautiful. Full of iridescent blue feathers...

Anyhow, on to the giveaway!
I'm giving someone a set of four fantastic fabric coasters! They are reinforced with an absorbent yet thin birdseye diaper cloth to soak up any condensation your cold beverage may be experiencing this summer. The outer layers are a cute 100% cotton owl print! I love these and am planning on making more for myself as they will fit perfectly in my living room.
To enter, just leave me a comment doing any of the following that you choose:
a.) tell me your favourite bird
b.) tell me your favourite plant or flower
c.) tell me your favourite blog
You can feel free to answer all of the choices, but please, do it in one comment. Only one comment per person. At the close of the May Giveaway Day (week), I will use a random number picker---my seven year old son---to choose a winner out of all the entries. I will ship anywhere so everyone can enter. Please make sure you leave your email address in this format: someone(at)gmail(dot)com if you are a no-reply poster so I can contact you if you win! If you forget it in your first comment, please leave another one with your email address. It'll still count as one entry! I'll announce the winner next week on a new post and I'll email the winner that day! Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blog world.
PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL IN YOUR COMMENT!!! I've gotten many no-reply comments with no email addresses! You can't win if I can't contact you! Thanks!
