January BLAH-ggie Give-away

January is notorious for being a "blah" month. So far, in our immediate circles, it is getting a reputation for being the month of illness. Ugh! We did have a lovely taste of Spring yesterday with 65 degree weather!!! Today it is raining, raining, raining. I'm sure we will have snow and ice again before long.

I thought it was about time I tried a bloggie giveaway, and thought something to perk up (that pun was not intended) this gray time of year might be appropriate.


I have a pound of Starbucks Christmas Blend and an authentic Scottish wool scarf to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will choose a winner sometime on Saturday. I'm afraid I'm not going to post this overseas due to the "heavy" weight (sorry :( ), but if you are overseas and have a friend you want me to send it to here in the States, we could do it that way. :)
I hope you all have as pleasant of a January as possible!

Good luck with this giveaway! I hope you get a bit of entries and that looks like one warm scarf. =)

Oh Heather,
how sweet of you to offer up some fun. I hope that you'll get some sunshine soon, we're pouring rain now too.

Lesha said...

Very nice! :)

Heather - what a gorgeous scarf! My sis brought me an aran sweater from Scotland after a vacation once upon a time - It is still bonny and warm! I look forward to seeing it on my daughter one day, since it has not fit me for many a long year! Are you felting any wool sweaters? I haven't had time to go to Goodwill to look over the racks for Shetland woolies to felt, but I shall!

Do you read 'fluff' at all? I just read 'Texas Brides' by Kathy Marie Hake for fun and diversion (it was in the $.99 bin) and the brogue of the three God-fearing Scots transplanted to Texas warmed my silly heart! You might like it - if you like romantic historical fiction!

Blessings!
Heather too!

What a great idea! I love them both! :) Great to see you yesterday - I'll send you a couple of e-mails. I'm super excited about Jane Austen!

You needn't consider me for your giveaway, but I figured I'd accept the invitation to comment, since I didn't want you to think that only women read your blog! :)

Our January, this week anyway, is absolutely gorgeous! We almost hit 70 degrees yesterday!

Have a great day, Heather!

What fun--and you have to be pretty blahh to not be "perked" up by Starbucks's coffee!

Carla said...

How nice to be "warmed" by coffee and a scarf! Hope you get lots of comments! We need it this week when we are having all seasons in one.

Hi Heather!

What a fun idea!

Can you believe the weather we have had over the last couple of weeks? I finally packed my summer clothing away, and I have already had to raid the boxes three times!

Hello!

I don't quite remember how I came across your blog months ago, but I've enjoyed coming and following you and your family.

I'd love to wear that gorgeous scarf and think of your blog. :)

The scarf looks beautiful on Lovella! This will make me look like a prophet if folks don't look at the date.

I've been enjoying my time looking around your blog!
