You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out…Part 2 (and a giveaway)

 Hey guys!
I’m gonna make this a short post because we all have a million things to do this week!
I got an email last week from my sweet blogger friend, Monica from Lick the Bowl Good…
if you haven’t visited her site, you must go now and check it out!
She has so many yummy ideas.
My most favorite being THESE.
Apparently her hubby is a huge fan of A Christmas Story.  She had seen my cookies from last year and wanted to surprise him with some!
She had a few new ideas, which is why I have re-posted them…plus, they’re just fun, and I didn’t think you guys would mind seeing them again πŸ™‚
Here goes ~
Of course there’s Ralphie…poor Ralphie.
And don’t forget, “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine”
The infamous lamp and the soap….
And finally, he shot his eye out.  Almost.
Now to the giveaway.
I was contacted a while back by Lindsey, the owner of The Pleated Poppy.
She sells the most adorable things and blogs too!
She thought maybe some of my readers would like to shop.
Do you like to shop?  Yep, thought so.
So she’s giving one of you $25 to spend over at her store!
I would personally like one of these adorable Bloom bags…
but I might also want one of these adorable wristlets…
Hop on over to her shop and take a peak around at all the cuteness!
So here’s how you win…
Leave me a comment here telling me what you would put your $25 towards over at The Pleated Poppy.
That’s it!
Lindsey’s also offering any of my readers a 10% discount on any purchase.  Just enter in the code COOKIES at the time of purchase to get 10% off!
Contest CLOSED!!
Winner is Kate from Sprinkle Therapy.

    Pleated Poppy….love everything? Does that count? The bags….that's as far as I can narrow. πŸ™‚

    Those cookies are amazing. My baby brother and I used to watch faithfully every year, but now his wife doesn't like the movie. πŸ™ Anything that reminds me of that fun is great.

    I love the bloom bag in black. The black and fuchsia are an amazing combo.

    I *heart* The Pleated Poppy! I had to call my 13 year old daughter in on this vote and we both decided that we love the "Hello Roses Gold notebook". We are notebook junkies and that is a cute one! πŸ™‚
