I love winning giveaways!

I forgot until today that I wanted to mention a giveaway I won recently! Some readers may be familiar with the Etsy shop Brookish, which carries Jane Austen inspired items. I love that shop! I always wanted something from it.

I am a fan of Brookish on facebook and one day she posted a random giveaway. All you had to do was comment with which book was currently on your nightstand. I debated commenting since I didn't have a book on my nightstand and was not even currently reading a book. (I do always read bible scriptures, but I mostly do that online these days! lol Oh what a high tech world.)

But I did comment, saying something like I wasn't reading a book but I loved reading, and maybe I will have more time when I don't have at toddler in the house. The next day they wrote the names down and her little daughter picked a name and I won!! The one not reading a book! I bet the other people who were actually reading books were annoyed. (heehee)

So a few days ago I received my mystery prize in the mail. A multipurpose ceramic tumbler/pencil holder/vase with one of the most romantic Pride and Prejudice quotes on it by Mr. Darcy!
"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you"
Yay!

It's beautiful either way, though!!
