Iittala Taika Giveaway To Thank You!

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


Good Morning friends! Before we all get busy with the holidays, I wanted to thank you for your overwhelming support for our Owl Lover 2011 Calendar by giving away the set of two Iittala Taika coffee mugs. I posted about the calendar just over a month ago here and am so happy to report that we had a terrific response - over 50,000 downloads!! The calendar has been featured on many renowned blogs including decor8, Poppytalk, How About Orange and Pikaland. Thank you all! I hope you enjoy your visits to My Owl Barn because I love reading all of your comments and emails that encourage me, and mean the world to me.


I picked these stunning Iittala mugs for the giveaway as I think these are perfect to enjoy hot cocoa with your better half during these chilly nights! I hope you like them as much as I do and enjoy them forever.

To enter, you must be a follower of My Owl Barn (click here to follow My Owl Barn)

Make sure you leave a comment here letting me know that you are a follower and have liked and shared.

Winner will be announced sometime on December 16th!

It's my birthday today so I am going to take rest of the day off but I'll meet you all back here tomorrow with more exciting posts. Have a great day!

Update: Our winner is Fawn!

Carolyn said...

Liked and shared!! Love the calendar. Thank you for sharing. I'd like to be able to modify the calendar in that I need a little more white space above each image to punch a hole for hanging. Is there a way to save the file so it can be modified - it's password protected right now. Understand if not - you have to protect the artwork. But, if so would really appreciate knowing how! Thanks again!
