What a fabulous giveaway, please put my name into the hat! One of my favorite books is "The Time Traveler's Wife". I read this when I lived in Chicago where the book takes place and knowing the places made it all the more special. Plus, I loved the odd premise of the story. If you haven't read it, I hope you enjoy!!

Jenna said...

Looove their candles! I'm loving the book I'm currently reading, "El Amor en los Tiempos del Colera" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. jenna.lea.c@hotmail.com

Awesome candles! Thanks for the chance to win some! Call me a hopeless romantic but I'm always a sucker for any Danielle Steele novel. Have a lovely day! :)

Amy Koenig said...

I would love to enter! (Full disclosure: I actually got here through Pollen Arts' Facebook page, but this blog looks lovely and I would very much like to stick around.) A little while ago I read "Two Years Before The Mast" by Richard Henry Dana, which was fascinating! It's a really engaging memoir of a sea voyage from Boston to California in the early 1800s (I'm not that much of a nautical fiction buff, and I loved it).

Hi Laura - I am really not a reader but I did read Outlander and was about 1/2 way thru Dragonfly in Amber when we moved a few years ago. I had 3 or 4 of the books in that series and either lost them or gave them away when we moved. I would love to be entered in the giveaway for these lovely candles. I will visit their Etsy store - we love candles.
