Souvenir Giveaway!

{Note: This week's new posts will appear below this one.}


Good Morning! How does a giveaway sound to you? I have a surprise giveaway of all the souvenirs I collected on my vacation for you. This giveaway will have four winners. Here is a little explanation, if you are interested in know what's from where.

The First Prize
Match Box- I found at a gift shop in San Francisco.
Incense Burner - It's from Thailand and a little different than our regular incense burner. It's made of resin and the incense cones (they come with it) burns inside the owl. You lift the head and place the incense cone and place the head back on. Different right?

The Second Prize
Salt and Pepper shaker - Since no one can have enough salt & pepper shakers, I got you one as well. When I saw the couple's expression, I couldn't resist buying them. From Thailand.
Fridge Magnet- When I think of souvenirs, I think of fridge magnets. This magnet looks cute with its movable wings, feet, head and tail.

The Third Prize
Tank Top - The tank top is white featuring an owl made using different, colorful fabrics of Thailand. It's 100% cotton! Perfect for summer. It looks even better in person.

The Fourth Prize
Bookmark - I found this little guy in Singapore, at a book store. If you are a reader, then don't let this one go.
Wood Figurine - Oh, he is my favorite. I tried my best in taking its photo so you could see the colors. He was spotted in Thailand at an art and craft bazaar. The artist was not there, but the shopkeeper explained to me that this is made of rain tree wood. It's supposed to be durable and very light in weight. He is gorgeous!
Baby Owl Figurine - He will keep you company while you are at work or home. His eyes are captivating!

This giveaway is open to all followers of My Owl Barn (click here to follow My Owl Barn). All you need to do to participate is to tweet or blog (Blogspot users click here) about this giveaway. Make sure you leave a comment with the link to your tweet or post mentioning the giveaway.

Winner will be announced sometime on May 26th!

Update: Our winners are Lola (first prize), Meg (second prize), Ashley (third prize) and Melissa (fourth prize). Thank you all for participating!

Anonymous said...

Hi - I have a collection of around 100 owls. Do you know anyone in the UK or Ireland interested in taking them? Chicken

My Owl Barn said...

@ Anonymous That's a huge collection. I am afraid I don't know anyone at both the places who would like to adopt them.
