Time for another giveaway. This time I will let you have a peek at some of the things that will be filling a box for the lucky winner.

Two cups, and saucers. Three vintage Junior Elf books.Two doilies, or whatever you want to call them.

And three cute dry erase boards. They have a magnetic back so they would work great on your refrigerator. I would love to have them for my own, but since I'm downsizing I'll let someone else enjoy them.
I will also include a few other surprise goodies.
To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post answering at least one of the following questions.
  1. What is your favorite color ?
  2. What is your favorite season?
  3. Where would you like to go for a vacation?
  4. What is your favorite restaurant?
For three more entries post a link on your blog and then come back and let me know you did so I can give you your extra entries.
I will draw the winner on September 1, 2009.
Giveaway is now closed and a winner has been chosen.
