‘Tis the season to give, and for some very lucky folks out in cyberspace, ’tis the season to receive a whole lot of loot!

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, I’ve teamed up with 7 of my blogging buddies to give away some of our favorite things. Everyone’s giveaway is different, so I encourage you to click through and see them all. Another reason you may want to visit them? Each and every entry is also a chance to win a 16 GB Apple iPad Air.

Talk about incentive.

Here’s how this is all going to work…
  1. Enter to win my Favorite Things by following the entry instructions below. Along with the mandatory comment entry, there are 3 bonus entries, for a total of 4 chances to win.
  2. Click over to to my friends’ blogs and enter to win their Favorite Things.
  3. Each and every entry into one of these 8 giveaways is also an entry to win the grand prize! Let me get out my calculator… four possible entries times eight total blogs… that’s 32 possible entries to win your very own 16GB iPad Air.

My Favorite Things Giveaway

I’ll tell you, curating a set of my favorite things was no easy task. I scoured my kitchen, pantry, and prop closet for the things I use and love the most, including (new versions, of course, I’m not sending you the ACTUAL stuff from my closet)…

(1) Two Weck tulip jelly jars, perhaps my favorite jars for just about everything. (2) One kitty cat bowl, I think it’s made for miso soup but it’s perfect for icce cream. (3) One mini French bread board from Etsy artist Vintage Home Designs. (4) One GIR Ultimate Spatula, in lime green (of course). (5) Four-piece OXO® Mini Measuring Beaker Set, you’ll feel like a super scientist chef! (6) Two bars of Olive & Sinclair artisan chocolate, made right here in Nashville (Mexican Chili and Buttermilk White).

… and a partridge in a pear tree.

Ok not really on that last one.

All in all it’s $73 worth of cool stuff. Awesome stuff. Stuff I know you really want to win.

Now here’s the fun part… I’m not the only one in on the fun. Take some time and visit my friends… they are each giving away their own set of favorite things. And remember, for each Favorite Things giveaway you enter, you’ll also be entered to win the grand prize (yes, that beautiful 16GB iPad Air!) I think those are pretty good odds, don’t you? Click through to enter!

Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing the GRAND PRIZE winner shortly!

Entries open through Friday, December 20th at 11:59PM PST (that’s December 21st at 1:59AM CST). I will be selecting my own winner via random number generator on Saturday, December 21st. All entries will then be added to the other bloggers’ entry lists, and from that list one Grand Prize Winner of the Apple 16 MB iPad Air (MSRP $499) will be selected via random number generator. Winners will have 48 hours to respond and claim their prize, otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Winner will be announced here as soon as they have been confirmed.

This giveaway is open to all residents of the US as well as residents of countries listed here: If you win the grand prize, we’ll be ordering your iPad directly from Apple and shipping it right to your door. Unfortunately, if Apple does NOT have a store for your country, you are ineligible to enter this giveaway at this time (sorry!)

The fine print: No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Winner will have 48 hours to respond otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Bonus entry requirements will be verified if selected as the winner, otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. This giveaway is not sponsored by any of the brands/products listed, rather paid for by myself and the other participating bloggers.
