Giveaway: Celebrate Royally

I'm not sure if you've heard, but there's a Royal Wedding happening tomorrow. You'd have to have been living under a rock to not be in the loop, because coverage is everywhere. From mainstream news to teeny, tiny blogs like this one, the world is abuzz with talk of William & Kate's wedding.

Mark's mum lives in England and sents loads of goodies our way so we could celebrate in style. My friends and I will be meeting together tomorrow night to feast on shepherd's pie, compare homemade hats (cause those Brits are all about hats at weddings, so we must be too) and watch our DVR-ed coverage of the event. We'll have royal wedding-themed cupcake liners, buntings, mugs and toothpicks. Not to mention a handful of other items that were sent our way. We've got so much stuff, in fact, that I set aside a few things for one of you.

Here's what is up for grabs:


First up is a mug made by Hudson & Middleton that features artwork of a horsedrawn carriage with the couple's names and wedding date inscribed on the inside. I love it's quirky style! Also included is an Emma Bridgewater tea towel made specially for the event. It's a beautiful piece, with non-traditional colors of black, red and yellow. And I'll even throw in the small Union Jack flag!

Here's how to win: *** GIVEAWAY CLOSED ***

1. Comment on this post and tell me if you'll be watching.

2. Leave an additional comment if you follow my blog for another chance at winning.

3. Link to the giveaway on your blog (and leave a link to your post here) for a third chance.


The giveaway will remain open until midnight Tuesday and the winner will be announced on Wednesday. Good luck!


P.S. The giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada only.

I've watched bits and pieces of it. I'm at work. Listened to the radio and saw a few pics on the web. Wish I had recorded it. But I'm sure I can be able to see it once I get home.
