A Sunny Giveaway
I just stumbled onto a solution that works for both of us.
You see, I have a problem. I love items of female life but some of them, despite my affection, aren't practical for me because I lack opportunity to enjoy them in real-life. Things like handbags. And pretty rain-boots. And Winter coats.
For the longest time, I craved these items but didn't buy them because my frugality trumped my desire. Then I realized I can have the best of both worlds -- briefly enjoying the items (which justifies buying them) and later passing them on to someone who can use them in real-life.
I spotted this cute handbag in the window of a local boutique. I walked past, stopped, walked back, stopped, thought about it, and weighed my craving for the bag against the impracticality of it. Then, without committing myself, I went into the store and asked to look at it. It was even more beautiful in person -- quality leather, nice construction. And not inexpensive.
So... after carrying this bag on my arm in my last photoshoot, I'm now offering it to you guys as a giveaway. It hasn't been touched except for that brief photography. It's in pristine condition.
Everyone who comments on any post of mine during the next two weeks will be put in a hat for random drawing. The winner, I assure you, will like the prize. It's beautiful. Plus, when you fold the handles down, it looks like it's smiling!
