Shopping & A GIVEAWAY!

When I'm on location for work I like to take some time to pretend like I'm on vacation. Yes, vacation a-l-o-n-e, but vacation nonetheless. Would you ever take a vacation alone? Today, in the spirit of being on holiday (as those Brits would say!) I did a little shopping and relaxed with a book. If you are looking for a good book, I beg of you, please go get The Help. I am loving it! So much better than Time Traveler's Wife even (which seems to be the book all my friends are reading)!

I stopped in an antique store and found a couple goodies that I just have to share! I am always on the look-out for "his" and "hers" pillowcases. Don't these seem too fun to have on your bed??

And I've always seen old postcards in antique stores but I've never bought any. Until now! I read the back of this one and almost peed my pants!
I'd love to get a postcard that said that! Haha!

I was also doing some virtual shopping and found something I can't (or I refuse) to live without.
I don't have a punch bowl and I'm planning to host several parties in the future so I thought this was very chic! Don't you think this is more festive than a regular old punch bowl?

One of my new favorite blog friends stopped made a comment yesterday and I'm SO glad. I just realized I had wiped out the spot for others to follow my blog when I did my big facelift a while back.

SO... If you're reading this - PLEASE become a follower!! How about if I sweeten the deal?

GIVEAWAY TIME!!

Next week I will draw the name of one of my new followers (over to the right you'll see what to do!) to receive the following in a care package from yours truly... Ta da!!!
A copy of The Help. I really think you'll like this book as much as I do!

A box of Godiva chocolates

a $15 Starbucks gift card

Here's how to play:
1. You get ONE entry for becoming a follower
2. You get TWO entries for becoming a follower & posting about this giveaway on your own blog

Leave a comment and tell me what you did :) Good luck!!

love the punchbowl! You could always fill it with ornaments during the holidays when you are not using it as a punchbowl.
