Celebrating 101 Things (With Presents!)

I'm finally hosting my first giveaway! And I even warned you two days in advance, so no complaining about being surprised. :)


Did you honestly think I had 101 things to celebrate? I probably do, but I'm not going to type them all out. :) Here are the real celebrations:
  • 4 months of blogging
  • 35 posts
  • 44 followers and 19 subscribers
  • Finishing my first draft
  • Super fantastic internet friends who deserve free stuff!
Because you all deserve something awesome for your summer, I'm providing the links to my two favorite books of all time. The great news is they're free e-books!

An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott 
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy

Now, only one lucky winner will get the bundle of amazing things I have here :)

a Rafflecopter giveaway













The prizes are
  • a hardcover copy of The Scarlet Pimpernel
  • an unlined, watercolor 5x8" notebook. You can choose if you'd rather have the yellow-green or blue-purple color
  • an adorable, watercolor postcard. Again, choose between the cameras and the world map
  • an extra prize of your choice (options disclosed to the winner)
I got all all of my prizes (except the book) via this Etsy shop. It was my first Etsy adventure, and I am very pleased with everything! The book I got in Like New condition from Thriftbooks, which is where all my income has been going of late ^.^

This giveaway will be going on until June 30 (through the 29th). I will announce the grand winner in my "Goodbye June" post on the 30th and mail you your stuff! So, I guess anyone can enter as long as they can provide me with a mailing address. Until then, share away, because oxymoron alert lowering your chances earns you extra entries!

Did you enjoy the giveaway? Thanks so much for participating! :)

  1. OH COOL! That copy of The Scarlet Pimpernel is just SO PRETTY!
    Every time one of the blogs I follow has a giveaway I think 'maybe I should do that one day' but I haven't ever got further than that point. xD
