100th post giveaway.

pBBW1-4802819v194

In celebration of my one hundredth post, I am hosting my first giveaway. My husband gave me a Chicken Little "the sky is falling" talk at dinner last night about the economy, so in an effort to spend less by using things I already have, I am pulling a favorite item from my gift stash.

Kim from 3 Peanuts turned me on to Henri Bendel's Vanilla Bean candles. I have one in my kitchen and one by my bathtub. The candle smells wonderful, but its scent is subtle, not overpowering.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post by midnight, Central Time, on Halloween. I'll have Vivian, who is an overwhelming favorite of my blog readers, draw for the winner, whom I'll announce next Saturday.

Have a good weekend!

Congratulations on your 100th post. While I only found you recently, I have thoroughly enjoyed following along.

You know I LOVE these so I must enter! I cannot wait to find mine (hidden in the boxes) and light one so that my new house smells like "home."

Have a nice "fall" weekend.

Kim

Happy 100th! I have seen that particular brand.. but have never bought it.. I have always wondered if it was a good candle.. so many times you buy them only to be able to smell them in the jar and not when they burn..ugh..

Nothing smells better than vanilla - it's relaxing and uplifting all at the same time.

CONGRATS on your 100th post!!! I am a huge fan of all candles. Have you tried the Slatkin (now Nest) candles? Their Christmas and Elton John scent are amazing. This on one too sounds fabulous.

PS- Madison has the placemats as I think I mentioned before. They are $40 a piece, so only $32 with your PC!

*Eloise, I had lunch with Biba today and she told me about your blog. How in the world did the journalism dept. at SMU ever let the math dept. "snag" you! I am so--impressed with your creativity. And yes, I am going to enter your contest on Halloween in hopes that Vivian will draw my name. Love anything from Henri Bendels. I loved going there in Chicago.
A friend of mine here is keeping her grand daughter this week and had a similar situation. Kristen is retarded and has seizures. It happened in Krogers. An adult angel came by and said "I have seizures myself and I can help you". She did just that.
Congratulations on your blog. I have you bookmarked now and can enjoy .

ps I am going to try your pizza--sounds great as I have never made my crust.
