Un, deux, trois - giveaway

It's Curious Acorn's 3rd Birthday!

Continuing in the hobbit tradition - it's my blog's birthday, you get the present. The things I give away are a bit random. Not unlike my blog. They represent the spirit of Curious Acorn and what you'll find when you visit here.

My most favorite thing about blogging is the friendships that I have made. My love languages are gifts and words of affirmation. You've probably guessed that by now. So this is my way of saying thank you for all that you have given.


The lucky winner will receive a blackboard wall sticker and retro "tea revives you" coasters brought back from my trip to New Zealand, a box of old school blackboard chalk from Germany, a tin of black currant tea, a box of black currant candies from Australia...hmmm - are you noticing a theme here? Also a lovely cup from which to sip your tea, and last but not least, my favorite lip balm--Smith's Rosebud salve. I dig the olde time pharmacy graphic on its tin. Oops, I almost forgot - the antique French postcard pictured above will also be included.


I popped in this picture of my own blackboard sticker on my kitchen wall to show you that it can indeed be written on with chalk


To get your name in the hat, all you'll need to do is leave a comment. If you're a lurker who has never commented before, introduce yourself for goodness sakes! Deadline is this coming Friday, July 20th at 8:00PM EST. I'll mail the prize anywhere - it's a small world after all.

Amy Danielle said...

you know jodi, i think we must have started blogging at very nearly the same time and i can't remember how we found each other- maybe through ann? whatever the case i am with you-the friendships are the best thing ever to come from blogging. and i am very glad to have found you.

What a delightful assortment of gifts. It is charming and reflects you as your blog does....But I already won your daughter's giveaway, so I think perhaps I shouldn't be included in this one, even though I couldn't resist commenting. I used to always buy black current tea in Hungary, but I don't find it often around here...It's great! I indulged this year by buying myself a tin of Harney & Sons Diamond Jubilee Tea.

Kristi in the Western Reserve said...

Oh, and did I forget to say, "Happy Blogiversary"? I think I did, so let me say it now!

HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jodi said...

Kristi, and any one else, you are welcome to jump in, even if you won before. :)

Kerrie said...

So thankful for YOU and your blog! Happy birthday "Curious Acorn"! (I think of you often, especially when I see my Wyeth print in my bedroom!)

Susan said...

Happy Bloggy Birthday (or Blogiversery :-) I am not sure how I found you, but I enjoy each and every post so much. Thank you for sharing your life with us, and giving us a glimpse into your world with your words and images.

I'm delighted when I see you in my Google Reader.

vicki said...

i remember how i found you. via holy experience. i first commented on a post about perspective, and i thought, cool beans. a young hip ARTIST christian gal. i might learn something from this one (and i did), and i like her blog, i am going to comment and follow. by your profile pic at the time i thought you were like 30. then you started posting about grandbaby, and i am like what!?- this doesn't make any sense.

i would like to be entered in the drawing. i like you a lot.

Kit said...

A very happy Blogiversary to you and the Acorn! I have so enjoyed getting to know you, my fellow-hobbit. May you have many more years in blogdom! I cherish your happy posts and encouraging comments. <3

Nancy Franson said...

I love random. I love you. So happy that you blog and that I found your blog. You truly are a kindred spirit (which JoAnn won't understand cause she's never read Anne. But I still love her anyway)

And I love, love LOVE that chalkboard wall sticker do-wa-diddly. Happy blogiversary!

Tamara Murphy said...

Blast it! Here life goes and gets all busy and I miss out on even entering your giveaway. Such a very good one at that! No bother, the real gift is you and your dear blog. Thank you for that. Would you believe, in the midst of my days, I'd recently thought, "Isn't it about time for Curious Acorn Jodi's blogiversary?" Well, a happy one to you and the rest of us. Blessings.
