From me to you...a surprise giveaway







Dear Friends

I have been thinking of a giveaway for some time and collecting little treasures on the theory of 'one for me and one for you'.  That one big prize has been on my mind but nothing has called out to me. So, I am going to do something different. I am going to giveaway my little treasures and personalise the giveaway to the individual winner. There will be five winners and I won't know who is getting what till I know who has won. I am hoping that this works as I love to pick up this and that and I would love to share them with you.

Just what is in my little treasure box? 
A few of my favourite things wrapped up in brown paper packages and tied up with strings...
Items that interest me...all the things that make up my blog... music, cooking, art, reading, writing, beauty...little things. The sort of things you can appreciate every day, that will hopefully bring a smile when you do. This is when I need to ask you to have a little faith in me :)

  9. What a sweet, fun thing to do. Collage of Life is at the top of my favorite blogs list.

    My eyes are brown like my father's. I love Spring the best - end of cold, and color is popping up all around. I wear Chanel No.5, just like Mama did. I am re-reading all of the James Herriot books, currently All Things Wise and Wonderful. They make me laugh out loud - my favorite thing to do. I don't go out to watch movies much, but the last movie I watched on DVD was I Am David - just lovely. The CD I am listening to in the car is called Paris - fun to drive with.

    Have a wonderful day!

  27. Oh, and the last book I read was 'Wide Open' by Nicola Barker. A bit grim, but a fascinating writer.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hello Jeanne... this is fun to say the least! Even if I don't win, it was great to see personal stuff about you and read what others had to say.

    So here it goes: Well darlin, I follow three of your blogs, obviously this one, and then Finding my Way and In one Place.

    As for me:
    My Eyes are blue/grey
    Without a doubt, Spring is my favourite season, my heart literally pounds in my chest when I hear the Robins singing, then I know it is not too far away.
    My favourite perfume (at this moment) is one called Pacifica's French Lilac.
    I am crazy about books and I have five on the go right now: Stretching for Dummies, retirement planning by Gail VAz-Oxlade, french decor, Change your brain Change your Body by Dr. Amen and Committed by Liz Gilbert.
    I don't go to movies very much anymore because I have to go an hour and half either direction to get to other cities to see them. But I did see Eat Pray Love just before xmas.
    As for music, I have been feeling stressed so I bought this one called Zen Garden, it's so relaxing.

    There you be darlin....

    Cheers to you
    Tracy

  35. I confess....I am a Jeanne junkie and look at all your blogs but respond most to Collage of Life which I love. You already know some things about me, but in answer to your questions:
    1. My eyes are brown
    2. I love each season. Right now I'm loving winter in Maine, at least for 10 days.
    3. No perfume. It makes me sneezey, headachey and puffy eyed.
    4. Just finished Fall of Giants and have moved on to Three Seconds. Have you read either?
    5. Black Swan, the creepiest movie I've seen in ages.
    6. My favorite CD is Mama Mia. I can sing really loudly to it!
    That's it for today. Have a great weekend.

  36. What a fun and clever idea (just like you!)

    My eyes go between brown and green - depending on what I wear. (really!)

    My favorite season is spring, closely followed by fall.

    I can't wear perfume.

    Just finished Jan Karon's "In the Company of Others"

    Saw "The King's Speech" last night. (loved it!)

    Last cd was susan boyle's newest.

    I follow all of your blogs, except the fashion one (oh no, what does that say about me.) :-)

    Fondly,

  43. Good morning Jeanne, First of all I must comment on you post of this amazing artist. I am always amazed at how many superb women there are and always have been...not matter what the era. I try to buy only painting by women when I purchase art....I think it is almost an impossible way to make a living and they need to be supported in every way possible.

    1. My eyes are blue...no green...no hazel...Actually, they change color, depending on my clothing.
    2. I love all the seasons...I live in FL, afterall...All seasons are wonderful!
    3. I cannot wear perfume, but often splash on the last of my Mango body splash by Garden Botanica (it's discontinued :-( )
    4. Books...Breaking Dawn

  57. I follow Collage of Life (love it!) but I will check out the others as soon as I'm done. I'm brown eyed...love spring time...don't wear perfume but kept my mom's bottle of JOY perfume after she died--she wore it my whole life. I'm addicted to itunes and love poking around--my new favorite song is Radioactive by Kings of Leon. My sister & husband insisted on the DVD Red w/Bruce Willis an action/comedy & actually it was pretty good. I'm devoted to reading--just finished What the Night Knows by Dean Koontz (it was almost too scary)This was fun--thanks!

    - So you know I really like Collage of Life!
    - My eyes are hazel
    - Favorite season...this is tough. Adore Spring and Adore Fall. Spring #1 because of new growth and gardening season. Fall in New England is breathtaking!
    - I don't wear perfume and a pet peeve of mine is the highly perfumed inserts in magazines! I do, however, love the scent of lily of the valley and anything lavender scented.
    - Currently reading: The Food Matters Cookbook by Mark Bittman. (I collect and read cookbooks all the time.) I'm on a waiting list at the library for The Help.
    - Last movie we saw was Inception
