UPDATE: We have our winner! Congratulations, Kathy Conger! And welcome to all our new subscribers.
I know it’s March…but who says the Irish get all the good luck?
It’s been WAY too long since I’ve done a giveaway, so I’ve decided to give away a handcrafted “You’re the Cream in My Coffee” mug, pictured at right. Designed and made by Greg Lamont of Lamont Pottery in Ames, Iowa, this limited-edition mug will keep your heart as warm as your beverage. (Hint: Its big handle and robust size also make it a great gift for the gentleman in your life.)
The contest is open to all Sparkling Vintage Life newsletter subscribers, whether you’re a longtime subscriber or brand-new to the fold. Subscribe by entering your e-mail in the space to the right of the screen. The winner will be chosen by random drawing on March 17, 2017. EDITED: I’M EXTENDING THE GIVEAWAY TO MARCH 20. MAY THE LUCK OF THE IRISH BE WITH YOU!
I’ll be giving a couple of these mugs away as door prizes at the book launch party here in Idaho on September 17. But I’ll bet a whole lot of you Sparklers won’t be able to make it to Idaho that day. And that hardly seems fair. So I’ve decided to also give away 2 mugs here on the blog as well. There are two ways to enter:
(1) You can leave a comment below, finishing this sentence: “One person I’d love to have coffee with is______________because ______________” (The person you choose can be fictional or real, living or long-gone.)
(2) You can sign up for my quarterly e-letter (look to the right for the sign-up form).
On the evening of September 17, I will draw 2 names at random to receive one of these special mugs plus a copy of You’re the Cream in My Coffee (signed, if you want). The names will be drawn at random from commenters and e-letter subscribers.
I’ll start. One person I’d love to have coffee with is Erma Bombeck, because we would laugh until our sides ached, and all the jokes would be clean, proving it can be done.
Okay, your turn.
