I have exciting news. Probably not as exciting as the fact that we’re adopting two kids from Africa (!), but exciting nonetheless.
I’m having a contest!
I realize that not all of you are the blog nerds that I am, but I read a lot of blogs. And all of my favorite ones have periodic contests. I am pumped to be joining the ranks!
To win the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment to this post with the amount of money you think we’ll raise in the garage sale AND your favorite item from the site below. Your comment must be posted by midnight on Friday, May 13th. I already told you that we have a lot of stuff to sell, but we will also be taking donations, so make sure to figure that into your total. Let’s be honest, your chances are waaaay better than winning the PowerBall! You have nothing to lose. The closest person without going over wins.
So what do you win?
Check out TengoMiedo Clay. (For those of you who aren’t very internet-savvy, just click on the underlined words). You’ll find many items created by the talented Amanda Barr. Amanda once studied Spanish Literature, but along the way she found ceramics and never looked back. Her work is influenced by her studies; you’ll find many items use words, phrases, quotes, or song lyrics. She hopes that each person will find a piece that speaks to them- they may not be at all interested in one piece but fall in love with another. Amanda hand-makes all items in her studio.
The winner will win a $20 credit to Amanda’s awesome shop. Here are a couple dreamy pieces:
My favorite is the vintage script heart! What’s yours?
Please post your garage sale guess and your favorite item as a comment to this post. Comment on my blog, not on facebook. Mark asked me what I would do if no one commented and I said cry…you don’t want that do you?
