Valentine Fairy Giveaway

In keeping with the lovely tradition started by Sandy of Art Tea Life I would like to sponsor a Valentine giveaway! I will draw names of participants who leave a comment for me on my blog. To make my day, would you leave the name of one of your favorite books in the comment section? There will be two winners, one stamp to each winner. The first one is a charming little fairy from Stamp Francicso and the second one is a cool word stamp from Inkadinkadoo. Last entry taken at 12 noon central time this Sunday, February 4th.
I will write all the names down on slips of paper and then Mike will pick the winners during half-time of the Super Bowl this Sunday! I hope the Bears are winning at half-time and at the end of the game!

Only ONE? Hummmm....

Guess I can't say, Ismael can I? ::grin::

How about a recent book I liked?

I read The Time Travelers Wife this past summer & thought it was a a pretty good read. A new twist on a very "done to death" subject ... and she pulled it off beautifully! Who knew there was a new way to handle time travel?!

But really I can always go with these two true favorites. Both must reads:

Rabbit Hill ... and ... The Van Gogh Cafe.

=^..^= love, zU

Allison said...

Well, I'd love to sign up...the fairy is really unique! My favorite book (of course, keep in mind that I have a three year old and a 14 month old so I don't do much right now) would be Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. It was well written, comical in parts and sad in others and, the best part, it was a quick read too!

Miz Smoochie Lips said...

Linda F. said...

Just one favorite? I love the Anne of Green Gables series, and have just introduced them to my 12 year old daughter. I love A Woman of Substance, and have re-read it a zillion times. My favorite children's book has to be Charlie Anderson, about a cat with two homes. When two kittens appeared at our doorstep (from a neighbors) we named them Charie and Anderson (Ande for short). Thanks for the give-away..I love to stamp!

Jill said...

Nan said...

A favorite book is Gift From The Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. What a fun thing for you to do!!

Diane Duda said...

i want to play! can i still sign up?

i haven't read much in years, which is odd because as a child/teen that's all I did. Back then I was all about Stephen King, and if I recall my favorite was The Stand. I liked the Talisman too, but I can't remember how it ends. Sometimes his endings are a little weird.
And sometimes blog comments just go on and on and on....

Jean said...

Great stamps! This is fun!

Carolyn said...

I'm in! What a grand idea. Love the blog, love the art. Favorite book? Today it's "The Cats' Opera" by Eilis Dillon.

Trixie said...

What fun, what fun, what fun! One of my favorite books is "The Tailisman" by Stephen King and Peter Straub. I cried at the loss of some of the characters and at the time when I read it, I did not want the story to ever end. I also really liked "She's Come Undone" by Wally Lamb. I finnished my second TBR book last night "Sickened".

Joy said...

Oh lovely stamps, please put my name in the hat. Do pop your name in my hat too!
Fave book - Precious Bane by Mary Webb.

Laura, your energy and enthusiasm for life are staggering and contagious. I have resolved this morning to get up earlier and stay up later and to get more creativity in each day. You are an inspiration!

My current favorite book (partly because I just finished reading it) is American Bloomsbury: Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau: Their Lives, Their Loves, Their Work by Susan Cheever. Aaah to have lived next door to Emerson! What we missed. I think you would enjoy reading it, if you haven't already.

All the best coming at ya -

Dorothy Drake
