A Few of My Favorite Things - GIVEAWAY!!!

I've finally gotten myself together regarding this giveaway (well, sort of anyway....)  I haven't actually taken the pictures of the items, BUT...I found them all online.  So, all is well.

Louis got so excited about my giveaway that he lost all of his hair!


JUST KIDDING!!  Clearly the little muffin had a trip to the groomer and they got him all ship shape for the holidays :)  His hair grows so fast that sometimes I just have them strip him all the way down when I take him.  He looks about 1/2 the size he did now though, and quite frankly I wasn't completely sure he was MY Louis when I first saw him.  But, once I got him home and he went directly to the treat drawer I knew I had the right little guy!

Now, gather round and let me tell you what I'm going to be giving away.  I've called this giveaway "A Few of My Favorite Things" because these are all things that I own, and that I really enjoy (or am looking forward to enjoying...like the calendar).

FIRST, you already know about this lovely calendar:







Next up is this Lilly Pulitzer koozie:





Next, are these FABULOUS Glam-Gloves dish gloves:





Now let me tell you that I do NOT have a dishwasher.  I know, I know...join the 21st Century T!!!  Believe me.  I know.  Anyway, I am always washing dishes and the most annoying thing is when I have on an outfit or sweater or something that is long sleeved. Somehow I always get water on it.  OR...the soapy water somehow gets down IN my gloves, making my hands feel slimy :(  These gloves solve that problem!  They come up to (and almost over) your elbows.  And they are cute.  And I love them.  And now you can too.

The final part of this little giveaway is.........get ready...........




A HAND HELD BAG SEALER!!!  I discovered this little gem a few weeks ago.   I am forever losing my "chip clips", and this handy tool solves that problem :)  It takes 2 AA batteries (which will be included) and you are set!  I seriously went around the kitchen opening things just so I could seal them.  I know, I know...I need to get a life.

So there you have it!  It's a hodge podge of a my favorite things giveaway :)  Surely there is something in this little collection that you are DYING to own?  And, if not...what great stocking stuffers!  This giveaway is going to have a short run, because I want to be sure that this it to you in time to stuff someone's stocking if you want to :)  So, here are the rules:

ONE ENTRY for following my blog & leaving a comment about which of these items you are DYING to own!
ONE ENTRY for blogging about this giveaway, or posting it in your giveaways section.
ONE ENTRY for following me on Twitter & tweeting about this giveaway.  Be sure to include @DSSeersucker when you tweet so I'll know!

So, THREE ENTRIES TOTAL are up for grabs.  This giveaway will be open through NOON EST on Friday, December 17, 2010.  I will announce the winner that afternoon, and will ship your prize the very same afternoon if you get back to me with your shipping info :)  Sound like a plan?  Good!

Can't wait to see who wins!

Lauren said...

I am a follower! I'm super excited about the bag sealer. I would do the same as you...open up chip bags, just to reseal them.

I also retweeted your blog giveaway on Twitter.

Thanks T!

Caroline said...

How did I not know you were on twitter?!!? I felt so lost and confused, so I immediately jumped over to twitter to follow you (I'm @Slingy7187 just in case).

I am a follower and I may be in love with the Lilly Koozie. I got two for my sister for her birthday. And I was jealous.

Dee Stephens said...

You know I'm a follower and believe or not. I have a pair of the glam gloves! Mine are purple and white polka dots!

LWH said...

Louis looks so cute!

LOVE the dish gloves, especially the green ones. They're so cute!

Deviled Megs said...

I am a follower of course!

And that bag resealer would be the perfect thing for all my bags of powdered sugar, brown sugar, chocolate chips that I have for baking. MUCH cleaner and neater than twisty ties!

Peaches said...

I follow DSS and I love those dish gloves. I am the one responsible for cleaning the kitchen in my home and cute gloves would make it way more enjoyable.

And that bag sealer could really come in handy at my house...maybe I can get Husband to stop eating my chocolate chips.

Miss Sweet Tea said...

Of course I follow!

And, HELLO...I'm dying for the bag sealer. I need one of those in my life! :)

MCW said...

I follow...and not sure if I am too excited about the glam gloves. I HATE dishes, but at least I have a dishwasher!
I would like that sealy thing!!!!

Tote said...

I am a follower of DSS and I love your blog. I would like that sealer thingie. I will post your giveaway and start following you on twitter.
Louis look sooo cute! I always get Jake shaved down because his hair grows so fast, and even though he isn't suppose to shed--he does!
Have a great day!

I just wanted to type the word "koozie". In fact, I'm going to do it again: koozie, koozie, koozie!

Ann said...

First of all I have to say I am so glad that I'm not the only one in the world who doesn't have a dishwasher...lol
Of course I'm already a follower and I have to say that the hand held bag sealer is way cool. I seriously would be doing the same thing you did just to check it out

The gloves are genius! I'm always getting my sleeves wet when I wash dishes (no dishwasher in my compact loft)

WEEE! I'm a follower (obvi) and I want those gloves! I have a tiny dishwasher but hand wash a lot of stuff. (Le Creuset doesn't go in the dishwasher to me!)

Sassafrass Jane said...

Holy giveaway! Love this stuff, T! Good finds, for sure. No dishwasher? Who needs one with those cute gloves? And WTF is a bag sealer? Maybe I'll find out...;)

Jess said...

Annie said...

A bag sealer? Umm hello, where have you been all my life?!

Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Love Cocktails and puppydog tails! said...

Ohh T! You know I am a follower, with a cute little muffin like Louis around I can't help but think you are FAB! I love the idea of this giveaway and I can totally relate on the dish glove dilema as I too have failed to join the modern world of dishwashers and wash all my dishes by hand too! Duncan gets soooo bored while I stand at the sink!

Love Cocktails and puppydog tails! said...

Oh and I blogged about you too ;0)

daphadoodlebug said...
