Interested in a giveaway?

Hey you!
How have you all been this week?
I've been quite busy here and haven't visited many of you but I'm here with you now, as a tiring day is nearly over. I just hope I won't fall asleep with my book in my hands again as I do want to see how The Secret Garden ends.
Anyway, there was a parcel for me in the mail this week.
Well, not for me really but for my friends;
the ones here in my everyday life
and the ones from all over the world: you!
I was so excited to get it and when I opened the box I saw this
rainbow of little packages!!!
Don't they look great?
I just had to take a picture!

Do you want to see what was inside?

A collection of writing paper, envelopes and cards all with the same theme:
these gorgeous notebooks,
each with a unique wildlife theme
Starfish and Mermaids...
The Universal Known (my personal favourite)...
Shells and Snails...
Lagoon wildlife

On each page there's a different drawing from animals, plants etc that can be found in Greece
(I don't know about the mermaids though!! :) )
I love them!!!
Well, if you'd like one of them to be yours,
together with some of the stationary you see in the second picture

some surprise 'girlie' things,
all you have to do is tell me which one you like best - simple, right?
I'll draw a name at the beginning of the following week (and send the winner the notebook of your choice).

Edit: the draw will take place on Wednesday as there's something else to blog about on Monday and Tuesday is usually a very busy day.

Hope you like them!

I'll visit you over the weekend.
Take Care!

Shells and Snails!!!!!!! I have heard it limits the probability of being the winner if you are the first to comment. But, SOMEBODY had to do it!

What exquisite stationery! So beautiful! I hope you enjoyed the Secret Garden! Is it the one by Frances Hodgson Burnett? I had it as a child and I must have read it hundreds of times. Although, her other book 'The Little Princess' was my favourite and I probably read it a thousand times!

I love mermaids and dolphins !
What a beautiful stationery, Yiota ! When I was a little girl I used to read the Little Mermaid and when I went to the beach I pretended I was one :) Well, years passed and I still love them ... they're so magical and inspiring ...
I received a porcelain mermaid in 1995 from a friend and I still keep it with me besides a silver ring (I bought it about 15 years ago) with 5 dolphins on it which I use to call 'my lucky ring' ...
Have a beautiful Friday !!!

What lovely things - my favourite is the Universal Known one - that will limit my chances as that is yours too isn't it? Thanks for sharing these with us and have a good weekend.

Good Morning Yiota. What fun here :) Such pretty stationery & personal too. Hmmm Universal Known is the one I like best but it was a tough decision :) Hope you are able to relax a bit & enjoy the weekend after such a busy week.

What a lovely giveaway! My favourite is the Universal Known though Shells & Snails came a very close second.
I finished the Secret Garden the other night - I'd got to the stage where I only had 20 or so pages left and just had to get to the end despite it being well past bed time! I still wouldn't list it as a favourite book though, sorry!
Have a nice weekend,

They are all beautiful, so very hard to choose, but the likelyhood of me winning is slim as I must be the only person I know that doesn't win anything, and I mean that never won even a tenner on the lottery I don't win raffles, see what I mean. But hey, put me down you never know!

Hi Yiota,
I love your new header. And your giveaway is lovely-those note books look beautiful. I am a Libra and find choice difficult-but if I had to choose it would be the one with the great bird illustrations. I love birds!
I am going to read The Secret Garden next I think as I have not done so for years and keep seeing it everywhere and reading about it since I sent it to you! I hope your wekend is relaxing after your busy week.
Oh-and I can just imagine mermaids residing around Greece-it seems like perfect mermaid territory.

the fall leaves journal, beautiful.

sweet giveaway

As the universal unknown...that just speaks to me and my soul!! Such beauty!!

Happy@Home said...

What pretty things you are showing here and how kind of you to do a giveaway with them. I would have to go with the majority of liking the Universal Known the best. Maybe it is because of that leaf on the front which fits so perfectly with the fall season.

I like the mermaids one! That is so cool. Every year Coney Island hosts The Mermaid Parade. One year a friend and I joined some people we knew to compete. We were the dancing electric eels and we danced and sang and won!

Oh, shoot! I just wrote a whole comment and I think it was lost in the ether. Phooey! Oh, well. I'll start again. First, thank you for the opportunity to win. Give aways are such fun. I think the art on all of them is gorgeous, but I especially like the Universal Known journal. I have been focusing on paying more attention to the things around me, and that one just seems to be appropriate.
