GIveaway Notice: I Need Email Addresses!


I got new lamps yesterday from JCPenneys online! Don’t they look better than the old ones? I needed taller lamps so I wouldn’t have to put something underneath. So my tired old eyes can read at night!

If you like them, they’re still on sale. I just now checked the site, Go there and put "crystal ball lamp" into the search and you will see that they were originally $179, and are now $99! They are 29 inches high, have a 16 inch fabric shade, and uses two 60 watt bulbs per lamp. They are made of crystal/metal. (They are very heavy, so won’t get knocked off the table easily. I’m telling the cats right now to watch their little kitty cat steps around my new lamps!) If I were smart enough, I’d link you right to them. But alas, I have yet to figure that out. It’s on my to-do list!

Also, for all you folks who want to be entered in my drawing for French Garden House next Wednesday, I need your email addresses. For some reason, with Typepad, I read your comments, and it lists your first name. If you have a blog, the cursor normally highlights a way for me to get in touch with your blog. But sometimes it just comes up with a name and no way to get your email address. And also, some of you with blogs choose not to put your email address directly on your blog. So whoever the pets choose next week, I need to be able to find you and let you know and email you with your gift certificate!

So you might go back and make sure. I will tally all the names in my anal, organized way, write them down, and do the old "draw-me-out-of-a-hat" number. And somebody gets a $50 gift certificate to one of my favorite online boutiques, French Garden House. They are very "upscale" and elegant and chic. (I’ve been over there salivating over some things myself.) If you want to go look or read their blog, you’ll have lots of fun. And plan to be sitting for a spell looking at goodies. So make some coffee or tea. Blog: or boutique Have fun!
