Monday suck-day giveaway, take 2!

Monday, August 25, 2008

Alright folks, lets cut straight to the chase. Its Monday, and we all wish it was Friday. I spent the weekend with the flu, and want a do-over. I wish I could put a do-over up for grabs today, but I'm no Hermione Granger. Did I seriously just make a Harry Potter reference? Gah. Its going to be a loooong week. I'm sure I'm not the only one that could use a do-over though, huh? I'll see what I can do in the future, haha...
Today's suck-day giveaway is a good one. (Run on setance, ready go!) One of my military-wife-gal-pals and etsy extraordinaire, jessicajane, who's got a new shop on the side, that maybe you have or have not seen, (which is practically empty for hush-hush-but-super-exciting reasons!), called PetiteHouse, is giving away one of her petite houses!! Isn't that the most adorable little decorative house you've ever seen? It makes me want to morph into a gnome and move in, haha. Did anyone else used to watch that show on Nickelodeon, David the Gnome? I loved that show.

The rules, friends! Head on over to her etsy shop jessicajane, and pick out your most favorite item. Come back here, and leave us a comment telling us what it is :) Don't forget to leave me a name and an email, or some way to get ahold of you incase you win! Me and my trusty sidekick, the random number generator, will pick a winner this upcoming Thursday morning. Thursdays need more of a celebration than Fridays do, right? Well at least I think so. Ok, good luck suck-day'ers! Go win something!

Ps. This listing is my personal fav...

-"Winter Faux Bois Magnets ( set of 5 ) Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets", by jessicajane, $20.00.

(If you would like to sponsor a Monday suck-day giveaway, please email me, or send me a convo at my etsy shop! Thanks!)

I am so excited to see more houses! I've hearted her so I can check periodically to see if they get listed. In the meantime, I like this pin, too:

At least you are over your flu!

Right now, the balloon is my favourite:

I really loved the set of 3 magnets she had a while ago. I've also purchased a little bird charm, which is adorable!

I hope I win! I love the little house!

I love this shop! I'm so glad I came to your blog today and found this gem on Etsy. If I had to pick one favorite item from this shop (which I suppose I will) it's the Framed Birch

It's wonderful!

I heart jessicajane! The new dwellings are really awesome but my absolute favorite it the fern pin. Beautiful.

RedMarionette August 25, 2008 at 7:35 PM
This is darling! (The Framed Birch Brooch) SO cute! I wish more people would wear brooches! Perfect for when the neckline is too high to wear a striking necklace.
Her houses are adorable too! Oh! Her mustard balloon brooch... oh I need to stop.


melroska August 25, 2008 at 7:37 PM

the painting with the sweet blue bird. the pink framed birch brooch is awesome as well though. i think i love all the jewelry in that shop.

Victoria August 25, 2008 at 9:56 PM  

Adorable shop! I really like the "Home in the Birches small wooden painting with clay bird"!

And I love your new photo of the two of you!

ThisOldHenHouse August 25, 2008 at 9:58 PM  

When I was little I used to run around the house pretending that I was Swift the Fox! I was a HUGE David the Gnome fan!!

I love both shops, that teeny house is adorable! My fav items would have to be the Framed Birch Brooch and the Faux Wood Magnents :-)

Christopher And Tia August 25, 2008 at 10:06 PM  

Aw thanks Victoria! Its about a year old, but I figured everyone could use a break from our creepy zombie picture, haha.

And I'm totally excited to see all of these David the Gnome fans raising thier hands. Yayyy.
