Holiday give-away (amended)

Deborah over at Antiquity Oaks is hosting a holiday give-away, and although I don't have much lying around ready to gift, I thought I'd join in anyway. Guess I'm a sucker for give-aways and holiday fun! Here is how it works:
• Write up a blog post (this is it!) with information about the really cool item(s) that you're giving away, as well as any information about limitations. (For example, be sure to let your readers know if you can't ship internationally.)
• Use the Mr. Linky widget on Deborah's blog to type in your name or the name of your blog and the link to your blog post.
• On your blog, be sure to post a link back to Deborah's blog, so that your readers can also see the other cool give-aways that they can enter!
• Make the deadline midnight Monday, Dec. 14, so people will have plenty of time to visit your blog and enter.
• You can choose your winner randomly, or you can set some sort of criteria for choosing the winner, such as most clever or touching comment.
• Ship your give-away item by Friday, Dec. 18. If you must ship later, be sure to note that in the description, so your winner realizes the item might not arrive before Christmas.

Okay, so rather than doing another post, I'll insert the details of my give-away here. The winner (domestic only, please) will receive their choice of homemade apple butter, pear butter or prune butter, plus a set of four photo notecards of the Yaquina Head lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. The deadline is midnight Monday, Dec. 14, and I will ship it the next day or so. Winner will be chosen at random, but clever or touching comments are appreciated!

(In case there is any confusion, please note that you do not need to join the holiday give-away in order to enter this one, or Deborah's! If you want to win, just leave a comment saying so; that's IT!)

That's it for now from . . .

Just a note for those interested; the three butters taste very similar.

A note from cold, snowy Wisconsin - I LOVE apple butter! Here, since we have so much snow and can't get the water tank near the pastures at the moment, the sheep are going to have to be happy eating snow!

Wow Michelle. Brian has a terrific eye - well composed and framed. Encourage him!

Sharon said...

I showed Ian Dozer's picture. He laughed. That's the one to print and frame - serious. Tell Brian I'm a fan.

Michelle said...

Sharon, if I tell him that, I may never get my camera back! He's already been campaigning for his own digital camera, but we think what he wants is just a little too extravagant for an eight-year-old.

Mmmm...Apple butter! I wish I had something to give away at the moment, and more time to write a blog...

Michelle, my daughter started with a point and shoot camera when she was about 9 or 10 - long before digitals. Her Dad gave her the first Nikon when she was 15; today she is a fantastic professional photographer!!! Brian did a wonderful job.

And I would love to win your giveaway!

Thanks,
Nancy in Iowa

Mmmm, yum Apple Butter :)

Brian did a wonderful job - he really captured the essence of Dozer! Tell him good job!

I would love to be in your drawing, I love pear butter! I'll make you a deal, I will gladly take some of your pear butter and I will send you 10 lbs of pears to make more with ;-)

Candy T said...

Please put me in your drawing. I make my own apple butter, but would love to try some pear. What a face Dozer. Love your smile.

Terri said...

Hehehe - I love your dog! What a great face! Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway, and please enter me in yours! :)

So nice of you to do a 'give-away' I couldn't resist when I saw "homemade apple-butter" (and the cards sound delightful too!)

Thank you for adding my name to the drawing.

I hope you all signed up to receive follow-up comments to get the results; Brian drew Rayna's name out of the hat! Merry Christmas, Rayna! Use the email link on the right of my blog to send me your snailmail addy.
