your present- a Blog-aversary give-away!

Notice- this contest is officially over and the winner was announced this morning here. Many thanks to all who visited and posted a comment.

Anyone who has an interest in my tea and would like to purchase an ounce or more, please contact me; we coopers at gmail dot com for more information.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

April 24 will be my one year “from my homestead” blogging anniversary.
Woo-hoo!!

So, to do a little something nice I am celebrating by having a little give-away. And since my blog is primarily about living simply and peacefully on April 24th I will randomly select one of you to receive the following:

2 oz. (that bag is full!) of “Soothe Me anti-anxie-tea” loose organic tea made with chamomile, lemon balm and hibiscus flowers. This is my own blend and a favorite in our family.

A set of 4 crocheted (by me) cotton coasters. These babies are so bright and fresh in color, I thought they’d be nice for summer time use.

Meditation CD: “Your Present:A Half Hour of Peace” by Susie Mantell. This CD has gotten great reviews and who doesn’t need to de-stress from time to time?

You’ll have everything you need for a little at home R&R! I can see you chillin’ out now. :)

The rules:

Just comment to this blog post and say hello. Don’t be shy now. Please be sure to leave a contact link or email when you post so I can reach you if you’re the winner. This is really important, else I'll have no way to contact you if you win. And if that happens and I can't find you, I'll have to draw another name. And I would hate for you to be the winner and then not really be the winner, ya know? If leaving your email in the post, write it out. example: chillenout at yahoo dot com. I'm told this this will prevent spammers picking it up.

And if you’re a fellow blogger, I sure hope you'll be kind enough to mention this give-away and include a link to this post on your blog. I would really appreciate that! The more the merrier I always say! That’s all there is to it!

A catalog of giveaways can be found at bloggy giveaways.

  6. Fun blog. I have what we call Island Chickens - feral chickens that were caught and put in my chicken house. They keep me entertained and give me eggs. What a deal.

  8. jayedee sent me!.... Howdy...Happy Blogaversary!
    Come on over and grab a cup of coffee and visit a spell at CoffeeCoffeeCoffee When you are there watch the Monsanto video... I am totally outraged at what this company has done!

  9. Jayedee sent me, too! Love the blog! The gift looks lovely too! What a wonderful idea!

  10. Awesome! And happy Anniversary. Of course, you know I adore you blog. Such a nice idea to mark the occasion.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Welcome and thank you both new friends and old!

    Tocco-I want to see the video but still on dial up out here in the country. I will definitely have my daughter download it for me (and her)to watch. I'm well aware of the evils of this corporate giant so I can just about imagine what this video details. Grrr. That's why it' so very important for us to be as self sustaining as possible and use heirloom seeds that reproduce. If Monsanto has their way, we'll all be eating franken-food and be dependent on them for it. Don't even get me started! :)

  12. I am an avid reader of your blog as it is always so interesting. Your gift give-a-way is such a unique idea. I personally find the tea very soothing and will be placing an order soon (unless I win the contest, of course)!!

  13. Hello, I came from Rhonda's blog (down-to-earth) and loved your comment there today.

    I keep striving for simplicity in my life wherever possible. It's always nice to meet others doing the same.

    What a lovely giveaway.

  14. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity. I read about this via down to earth/Rhonda's blog and my philosophy is simple living too. Happy anniversary and best wishes, daffodilangel from country Victoria, Australia

  15. Yay, new comments!! I so appreciate your stopping by and the nice comments and for mentioning where you found me.

    One thing, I might have a mighty hard time contacting you if you're the winner unless you post an email address. If there's a link to your blog, then I can always contact you that way. So, please, please, please leave me some way to contact you in case you're the winner, k? Otherwise, if your name is drawn I will have to put it back in the hat and pull another and I would hate to have to do that. :(
