300th Post Give Away!

Dum da da daa! My Post number 300 Give Away!!! Being that this is my 311th post it is well overdue. Better late than never, right?
I have chosen the Valentine's Day theme as February is fast approaching. (That means warmer weather soon!) Of course that also brings Spring rains, but hey, that means flowers too. I think I am getting ahead of myself. As well as the weather. I am sure we have at least one more snowstorm ahead. Who am I kidding, we have had snow on my birthday in mid April! I do actually love snow, it's just the grey days of winter that start getting to me about now, but I digress, back to the prizes!

The lucky give away winner will be set for Valentines Day with this cutie patootie ankle bracelet of linked hearts from Lia Sophia. Enough to make your loved one swoon, no?

Then a bit of Fluff and Finery from my own two hands. A cuff of floaty soft pink flowers to encircle your wrist. I can just see you raising your delicate hand to your forehead as you open your paramour's Valentine..."Oh Darling, you shouldn't have!"

The third bit of scrumptiousness is from a local confectionary called The Fawn. Don't you love the name?  They have been making absolutely yummy sweets in Cincinnati since 1946. I will be sharing an assortment with the winner. (Note the word "share", I may have to keep a few pieces for myself...) I am adding a link to a bit of the shop's background with a story told in the founder, Paul Guenther's, obituary. I am always interested in the history of people and places. His family still runs his business in a way that would make him proud.

If you would like to join in a chance to win, please leave a comment, if you would like two chances please mention my giveaway in a post on your blog and leave a second comment letting me know. If you are a follower you will automatically be entered, so you have three chances to win, yippee!!! I know I have some gentlemen follower's and two of these prizes are a bit girly girl, but I am sure they know of some lovely lady who could appreciate these gifts. A friend, wife, mom, you can keep the candy all for yourself!
I will close the Give Away at midnight on Tuesday the 26th of January and announce the winner on Wednesday. Until then I am taking some time to get some things around Frippery Farmhouse whipped into shape. Good luck and I will see you Wednesday!

Have a lovely weekend, P.

 P.S. You know I love my city so not only have I chosen a gift from a Cincinnati confectionary, I have chosen the first two songs on my playlist from Cincinnati band Over the Rhine to accompany my Give Away. Check out their website and fall in love with the music.
Pin It!
