Bloggy Giveaway *giveaway #2*

This contest is now closed.
Thank you all for your interest in my giveaways!
The winners of all four of my giveaways and this weeks What The? will be announced later today (Feb. 2) in a separate post.

Look what I’m giving away!

(this isn’t the fabric, but trust me – it will be gorgeous. I will have a photo for the winner to choose from)

It’s a purse – made by by mom! She is so talented. She makes these purses out of the most gorgeous fabrics and color combinations. Each purse comes with a liner that can be transferred from one bag to another, so you can change your purse quickly with your outfit.

The liner has compartments for holding your cell phone, pens, purse calendar… It is oh so handy! See this post for photos of my purse and the liner. (I’m trying to get a website finished for her, so check back and let me know if you want that info when her site is ready)

This contest is only open to US residents.

For your chance to win, just leave a comment on this post. I’ll leave the comments open until this Saturday, February 2nd. Then I’ll use my trusty hat to pull the name of the winner.

Be sure to see my other giveaway here.
