A New Home for Lily ~ Giveaway

In celebration that A New Home for Lily has released  I decided to have a giveaway.
 
 
Today we'll be doing things a little differently. The following two pictures are things that Lily received in book one, Life with Lily.
 
The first person to correctly tell me when she got the lamp and the apple shaped candy dish will receive a signed copy of  Life with Lily and A New Home for Lily
 

 
 
 
If you haven't read the first book or can't remember the occasions when she received these simply leave a comment telling me one of the favorite gifts you received as a child and you will be entered for a chance to win A New Home for Lily.
 
For an additional entry, post a link to this giveaway on your blog or Facebook, then come back and leave another comment telling me you did.
 
I will be choosing the winners on Monday January 28th.

  1. Ahhhhh, I'm drawing a blank!!!! I'm still going to try and remember and be the first one. I do remember my favorite gift when I was little - a pair of go-go boots when I was five. I know, crazy right??

  3. I'm not sure what the answer is but I remember my Mom had an apple just like your picture when I was a little girl. My favorite gift as a child were little cast pots and pans from an older women up the street. I still have them today.

  4. Lily picked out the lamp when she went shopping with her grandma and her grandma gave her some money to spend. (Was this maybe in KY when she went to visit her family there?).

    I'm reading the second book now (loving it by the way) and I think I want to take notes! LOL Have a great weekend ~

  12. I also haven't gotten to read the books yet, but I would like to sometime! My favorite gift was a "newborn" baby with a cloth body but rubber/plastic head,arms, and legs. She looked like a perfect baby and I loved her very much. I used to spend time admiring her "perfect" fingers and toes ~ just like a real mother. One of my own children looked similar to that doll soon after birth and it brought back memories. I still admire my babies little perfect fingers and toes. :)

  13. Oh we loved the first book my children just loved it being read aloud to them. We also gave one of these for my neice for Christmas as well.

    She got the apple shaped candy bowel in the gift exchange at school for Christmas. It was from Hannah and it had some homemade chocolates and some smarties as well. She also got a paint by number set.

    The little oil lamp was from the money she got the day her Grandma took her shopping when they visited her in Kentucky

    We look forward to reading this new book.
    Will there be more coming after this one?

  14. Well, I've never read the book...but really want to.
    But I think one of my favorite gifts as a child was the small stuffed duck I got when I was four, and still have to this day :)

  15. One of my favorite gifts when I was a child was a pink huffy bike my parents left under the Christmas tree. We never had huge Christmas gifts, so that morning is particularly memorable to me :)

  19. I haven't yet bought the book to read, but my favorite or at least most memorable gift, I think, was a pair of navy blue gloves with Bugs Bunny screen-printed on them from my teenage cousin Johnny when I was about 4-5 years old. He was about 13=14 years older than me and was the 1st cousin I met after my mom married his uncle when I was 3 years old.

  24. Life with Lily was a cute book and I enjoyed reading it. Hoping my library gets A Home for Lily but right now I do not see it listed at the library. Lily bought the lamp when she was visiting her grandparents and was shopping with her grandmother. She got the apple candy dish from another student at school for a Christmas gift exchange.

    Lily bought the lamp when she went shopping with her grandmother, and received the apple during a gift exchange at school.

  26. I haven't read the book yet, but my favorite gift as a kid, was my first watch. I got it for Christmas in the second grade. I drove my family nuts that day, by constantly telling people what time it was.
