TIME FOR A GIVE AWAY (or two!)!!

Apparently, it is a momentus occasion when one reaches the 100th post of his/her blog. Somehow I missed this, and this post will be my 109th post. No worries, though...still time to do a little celebratory give away! Now, because I am posting in the man shed, and am not sure how to download pictures onto this computer, I am just providing links to the items I am giving away.

The first is a book I picked up at a yard sale recently. Actually, I picked up two of the same book at said garage for me, and one for you! I am really excited to read it. It is a book on square foot gardening. I am not sure if the book I am giving away is this exact edition, but it will be similar. I hope to begin square foot gardening in the spring. I have read that it is a very effective, simpler way to garden. I am looking forward to growing some of my own food next year...maybe one of you will be inspired to also, after receiving this book!

The second give away is for Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Lavender Dryer Sheets. These are much more earth-friendly than conventional dryer sheets, smell great, and are really expensive when purchased retail ($8!). I picked them up at the local Discount Food Store this morning for a mere $2. I love that place! I don't use dryer sheets, but seem to have a weakness for earth friendly (or cutely packaged, if I am being honest) cleaning products. So, when I saw them, I knew I had to get a box to give away here!

All you have to do to win, is leave me a comment on this post sometime between now and next Saturday night (a week from tomorrow). I will then select two winners at random (I will use the very scientific method of having my 5 year old select two numbers between 1 and the highest number of comments) winner for the book, and one for the dryer sheets. You don't need to specify which item you would like to be entered to win, you will be entered for both. I will ship the items to the winners the following week!

    I found your blog via "link from a link" surfing. I enjoyed your post on a green Christmas, especially the part on contentment. At our worst in America, we have more than most of the world's population. I'd love to be entered in your drawing, particularly for the book. Thanks so much - I'm off to view your archives.

  2. I would like to be entered into your drawing. I have a book on raised bed gardens and that's what Mike and I have decided to do next spring at the new house!! I can't wait!

  3. Come on sweet C, pick my number!!!

    I just came upon your blog in the last week or so. My husband and I are just starting to learn to take better care of the creation, and I think your blog will be a good resource for us. Thanks for entering me in the drawing. I'll send you my e-mail address if I win.

  5. pick me! pick me!! :) Isn't that the most selfish comment I could write!? I'd love to win, though. Maybe C will pick my number!!

    Sorry I've been out of pocket this week... my sister's in town and we've been busy. Anyway, maybe I'll start posting more next week.

    Hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

    Hey Laurel! Yes, I comment when there's something to win...
    The garden idea intrigues me - it seems like such a great experience for little ones, and I'd love to not have to buy everything we eat! I'd love my laundry smelling like lavendar too, so either gift is a great one. I also enjoy keeping up with life down in Statesboro...keep the posts coming!

    Guess I'm a little late catching up on your blog. I just love a giveaway. Put my name in the hat.

  8. What a great deal on those dryer sheets! My sister swears by them, but I tell her she's crazy for paying $7 per box.

    And then she looks at me like I'm the crazy for hanging clothes on the line.
