G I V E A W A Y !

Yay! I'm really excited to be hosting my very first giveaway. I really love all of the items included. In fact, it was super hard for me to part with them, instead of keeping them for myself. : ) A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I would do a giveaway when I reached 100 followers. I'm a little behind! I didn't expect the rather quick spike in followers that I received. I'm so glad to have so many neat, interesting, lovely readers. You're all wonderful! So, onto the giveaway:

(Let me apologize in advance for the rough images!)

1. I've recently been on a huge mystery kick. Books, movies, television...This book is one of my old favorites. I love Agatha Christie, and this was the first book of hers that I ever read. I love it!

2. This little guy is super small and cute. The perfect decoration for a little shelf or table!

3. These clip-on earrings are a chocolate brown color w/ white polka dots. They're really fun, and those of you who don't have pierced ears can still enjoy them. : )

4. The fourth item is a precious little music box. When I found it the other day I thought it was really cute, but it appeared to be broken. I almost didn't buy it, but upon further inspection I realized that the little spring that pops up when the box is opened won't come up on it's own...It needs a little help! So you do have to pull that up, but it's worth it. (It stays up on it's own, and functions properly.)

So, again, if you win the giveaway you will receive the above four items mentioned. Oh, and also that doily in the last picture as a bonus! (It's beautiful.) I hope you guys love these items as much as I do. 


- You must be a follower of my blog.
- You must comment telling me at least one random, fun fact about you!


- By blogging about the giveaway you will receive TWO bonus entries.
-By tweeting about the giveaway you will receive ONE bonus entry.

I'm really excited to be doing this giveaway, and I can't wait to do more in the future! I hope you all enjoy.

The giveaway will end next Thursday, the 26th, at 11pm. Winner posted on Friday!
