Summer Giveaway!!

The words Summer Giveaway sound kinda nice. Actually it's a Summer Anniversary Giveaway. Almost one year ago, August 1, 2010 I launched this blog.  I decided to celebrate a little early due to the fact I am Mother of the Bride, and August is going to be ka-razeeee!!! The wedding is August 13th. I do not think I will be in any condition to host a giveaway....you know, pre-wedding hyper-mode, LOL!!

I have been having a lot of fun writing the blog, and visiting other super blogs. My lovely followers are the best!! You are the Best!

Five winners this time. No significance to that number, just that I have five great books to giveaway. All you  have to do is be a follower, and leave a comment. If you have a preference to which book you would like, if you are selected a winner, just put that in the comment. Easy. Open to all my followers, international included. If you win and live in Canada, I will hold on carefully to your prize until the postal strike is over.

This is an eclectic assortment of books. Here they are in no particular order:

Book Number 1: 

Ellen Dugan writes in a light, witty style about all things magickal. She is a Wiccan author and I own a good number of her books. The title explains it all. If you are new to the Craft or new to using herbs or just interested in finding out about Herb Magic, this will be an excellent resource for you.

Book Number 2:
Silver Ravenwolf is a popular Wiccan author who "shares her personal notebooks, tracing her own spiritual path of enlightenment" in this book. Discussions of magickal work on both basic and complex levels, an extensive herbal section, rituals and spell work are included along with her story of living life as a witch.

Book Number 3:


This organic gardening book from Yankee Magazine describes "1,001 ingenious ways" to use common household items to control weeds, beat pests, cook compost, solve problems, and make tricky jobs easy. This book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in organic gardening.

Book Number 4:

This beautiful book from Better Homes and Gardens is a guide to developing and designing comfortable outdoor retreats. It has gorgeous photos and helpful ideas that will make your summer retreat beautiful. Garden Rooms is a great read.

Book Number 5:


And now for something completely different! If you are a crafter/sewer, this adorable book is all about handmade holiday/winter decorations. Now is the time to be crafting for the Season...Yule, Christmas, Winter. It is loaded with excellent ideas, instructions and it is all about Felt.

So that's the Giveaway. Which of these books would you like? I will select winners in one week, on July 1st.

Summer Giveaway

Blessings from Robin!!

Magic Love Crow said...

Robin, this is so sweet of you! Thanks so much for having such a great giveaway! I hope if I win, the postal strike is over with! It better be!!! All of the books are great, but if I have to pick my favorite, it would be book #2 ;o) After that would be, book #1, book #3 and book #5. Have a wonderful day my friend ;o)

Ok, I'm not sure but I think I went to leave a comment on your last post and mistakenly left it here instead. So if you get two comments from me on this post you'll know the first was for the last one. Or something like that, I'm confusing myself now...

Anyway, congratulations on your early blog birthday! I agree, I'd say you'll have a pretty mad (but utterly amazing) August and won't have much time for the virtual world. And what a wonderful and generous giveaway you're hosting! Count me in :) Oh, and if I was blessed enough to win I'd love either the first on magical herbs for beginners or the last on felt crafting. Though they all look wonderful!

Well, hope you're having a lovely day,

Roisin x
