A MINI GIVEAWAY TO CELEBRATE AUTUMN!



YAY! Autumn is finally here. Hopefully my neighbors will finally "get" the Christmas tree that is decorated for Halloween on my front porch. I've seen the looks of those people driving or walking by...like, she must be crazy--it's way too early for that!

I'm now in full pumpkin mode y'all...having fun around the house today eating pumpkin pie and sippin' some African Autumn tea (from Harney Tea)...going through all the fall editions of my fav magazines.
Burning pumpkin scented candles...in the guest bath...
Just about everywhere...
While shopping in HomeGoods the other day, I bought a precious Halloween apron to add to my ever-growing apron collection. As I opened the package, to my surprise, there was another little apron attached to it..for a little girl! Well, since I don't have a little girl, I thought it would be sweet to pass this cute apron onto one of my lucky readers.

Isn't it just precious???

RULES FOR THE GIVEAWAY:
I'm gonna make this real simple for y'all to enter. Just leave a comment...there's no need to blog or tweet about it. Just tell me what you'll do with it. Will you give it to your daughter, granddaughter, niece, or a friend's daughter? Maybe a little girl in your church, neighborhood, or school who doesn't have a lot of fun stuff? I would love to know! Of course, I'll be modeling my apron soon in an upcoming post and would love to feature a photo of the lucky little girl who gets this apron on that post. You may enter this giveaway until Saturday, September 25th at 12:00 noon. I will announce the winner in my blog post on Sunday, September 26th. Good luck to y'all!

How sweet! I don't have a little girl of my own, but I do sponsor seven year old Majlinda through World Vision. She lives in Albania and I often send her little packages. I usually send books, coloring books and crayons, dresses and tops and other things. I think she would love this apron, and I'd send some books about Halloween as well, as I'm sure they don't celebrate quite the way we do!

Happy fall to you, Miss Janice!

Hannah said...

Oh, this is very cute! I love getting into the "holiday" spirit! Everything that you have done looks wonderful. My sister lives far away, so I love to send her boxes of goodies. She would have lots of fun with this apron!

I'd love to give this apron to my 7 yr old niece, Annika Rose, who loves to help her mommy in the kitchen.

ABC said...

I'd love to give it to my sweet cousin Emma, who just turned three! How precious is that???

Annie said...

That is so cute! My daughters would love to dress up with a CAT apron! I love reading your blog... You are just so precious!

Kim Reese said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I would love to share the apron with one of my Minnies. They often help me in the kitchen as I teach them the art of cooking, baking, etc. Also, where did you find it? I would love to have one for myself and the Minnies.

Suburban Princess said...

Awww too cute! I dont know any little girls I would give this to so dont pick me but it will make some little girl very very happy!

Mimi said...

Ohhhhhh, Miss Janice, how my 5 little monkeys would enjoy wearing this while being "cookers" with Mimi! But since there's 5 of them and only 1 apron, Mimi's thinking my very special little friend ~ 3 year old Miss Emily, who's daddy is serving our country in Iraq ~ would be just adorable baking up Halloween cookies for her daddy in this, don't ya think? Oh, yes, I can just see her now!

Mimi said...

And I forgot to tell you I can smell those pumpkin candles burning all the way up here!!!

Debby said...

Adorable! All your fall decorations are fun and lovely. I would love to give the apron to my dauther as a birthday surprise (her bday is in October), and it would add a festive touch to our kitchen. I love your blog, Miss Janice!

Gracie Beth said...

I would give it to my little sister to wear when I teach her the top secret family recipe for pumpkin pies!

Tina said...

Hi Miss Janice!
Halloween and Fall are my favorites too. I have two sons but my brother and sister in law are expecting a girl next month--right before Halloween! I would love to have this apron for those future cookie making sessions with her Aunt and cousins! Happy Fall!

Miss Janice-
I would donate it to my upcoming Aiken Junior Woman's Club charity auction...the proceeds benefit a battered woman's shelter.

Mary Noller said...

my little daughter frances LOVES to help me in the kitchen. it would be so cute to have a little apron for her to wear as she helps me!!

Kittie Howard said...

I don't have a little girl of my own. But I think Lexilooo's sponsored girl in Albania is great.

Brittany said...

So cute! I love that you're getting into the holiday spirit! And I must say, I love the shower curtain in your guest bathroom. :)
I'd give the apron to my 8-year old sister, Maggie. She was our "little blessing" and is just so sweet! She'd LOVE it.

Gert said...

Janice...how darling. Wish I were a little girl again...I would love to give this to our neighbors granddaughter. Thx for a wonderful giveaway!

Lori said...

My best friend has the first grand-baby girl. Miss Anna Grace would look just marvelous in that cute little apron. She never goes anywhere without a smocked dress and a bow in her hair. She even tubed on the lake for her first time last weekend and had a bow in her hair. Miss Anna Grace would love to play dress up with that cute apron.

High Heeled Life said...

What a sweet and thoughtful idea!!!

I do not have any little girls to give it to .. can't wait to see the picture of the little girl in it!! HHL

kbell23 said...

I would add this to my "housekeeping/cooking" center in my kindergarten classroom. I think that the kinders would LOVE it. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity. Love, Mrs. Kindergarten

Monograms and Margaritas said...

My goodness, that's just too cute! I would love to be able surprise my little sister sister with it. My twelve year-old brother and her are "hosting" their first Halloween party this year and it would just be perfect to gift her a special apron just for the occasion. I think it's important to pass down traditions and the hostess apron is a great one to start at an early age!

The Doxie Diaries said...

This is just precious! If I won it, I would give it to my little niece. It's been a hard year for her. Her older brother lost his foot in a lawnmower accident this summer and she really needs something fun all of her own.

Happy Autumn Miss Janice!

What an adorable giveaway. I'd give it to the daughter of one of my friend's who's helped me out a LOT while I've been job hunting. She LOVES to bake and it'd be too cute on her.

XoXo.

What a cute apron - If I won I would give it to my best friend's daughter who is 5 - my own girls are either too big (15 and taller then her mum) or 2 and a little too small just yet. But I know my friend's daughter loves to help her mama in the kitchen and loves to dress up.

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

My granddaughter Eleanor would LOVE this apron! We always bake together when she visits from Houston, and the goodies get sent home with her because goodness knows WE don't need any around to tempt us! Thank you for your very kind giveaway!

Erin said...

That is adorable. Will give it to one of my best friends daughter.

Busy As Can Be said...

That is so cute! I would give it to my niece! SHe loves Halloween and lots of color. We always have chili before we go over trick or treating and she can where it to help cook. She wouls love it!

Laura said...

Thank you so much for the chance to win this adorable apron! My 5 year old and I love, love, love to bake in the kitchen! And besides, after seeing it, she wouldn't let me do anything else BUT let her have it!! Diva Belle she is!!

kay said...

So sweet of you! I would cherish it, I have an apron collection that is very dear to me, each on holds a special meaning, from my mom, grandmother, Aunt's and so on each one tells a story and a special memory. I hope to one day pass this a long to a daughter of my own. I would love to have an apron I can hand down to her one day that has a cute story of winning it from a blog contest from a very regal Lady, Miss Janice!

Teri said...

Oh what a cute apron Miss Janice and how thoughtful of you to want to pass it on to one of your readers. I would give this apron to my little granddaughter Austyn Mae who lives with me. She would love it very much. I am trying to teach her how to bake and she loves helping Nana in the kitchen.

Teri said...

How thoughtful Miss Janice to pass this cute apron onto one of your readers. I would gift this apron to my granddaughter Austyn Mae. She loves helping Nana in the kitchen. Thanks you!

Tina said...

So stinking cute! My 2 year old would look precious in it, as she has just started to play kitchen!

Bridgit said...

Well ...I have two little girls ...so question is not who ...but how will I get them to split the time wearing it ...haha! bggianakos@yahoo.com

sandy said...

What a thoughtful gesture. My little girl is all grown up, but we have a family in our neighborhood going through some tough times, and I think it would be fun to invite their daughter over to bake cookies. She could wear this apron while we have some fun!

Martha said...

OH this is sooo cute
I would love it to add to my apron collection, I just love aprons... But I vote give this to Lexilooo because sending a little to a wonderful World Vision darlin is so much better, and I think it would be something that little girl would clarish. Miss M

Hattie said...

Hi Miss Janice,
I would give the cute apron to a friend's daughter. She would love it! Thank you for entering me.

Jeanette said...
