Giveaway time

Posted by Red Ruby Rose Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Mid-February, it's bucketing down with rain here and I thought it would be nice to do a little giveaway to lift the spirits. I'm offering this Peacock Palace clutch as the prize and free international shipping.
Here are the details:

This giveaway is open to all my blog followers (please tell me how you are following so I can check, and if you're not currently following you can easily add yourself in the box to the right)

Please also answer the following question - what's your favourite joke or saying? (the winner will be chosen randomly but this bit is just for my entertainment to drive away the February blues)

Extra entries may be gained by:
+ Hearting a favourite item in my Etsy shop or hearting my shop (1 entry)

+ Blogging/Twittering/Facebooking this giveaway (1 entry each)
(Please provide links to your blog/twitter/facebook. And supply your etsy username, multiple entries don't need multiple jokes/sayings unless you're brimming with good material!)

This competition will end next Wednesday. Thanks and good luck!

  11. Sydney Says:
  12. My favorite funny saying is from my dad. "You can't shine up a turd" He usually uses it in reference to someone's poor choice in a boyfriend or girlfriend once that person realizes their "ex" probably wasn't the best choice

  18. I really can't think of a funny saying or a quote, they're come quite spontaneous to me... But I was laughing the other day when my friend was saying "As I said before, I NEVER repeat myself." I love oxymorons...And then people go "What kind of morons?!?"

  19. I follow! My favourite joke is "Two bears in the bath... one says to the other, "pass me the soap?" and the other one says "what do you think I am, a typewriter?". Hysterical.

    Have a lovely day!

  32. Hi Rowena!

    I follow your blog via Google Reader.

    I'd seen the following on my colleague's Facebook wall, and wondered where it was from; apparently by Groucho Marx:

    Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

    I think it's quite hilarious!
