shades of light give away

This week I'm happy to announce, not just a discount to BB8 readers but an actual GIVE away.
FREE stuff.
One of my favorite resources for well designed easy-on-the-pocket lighting, Shades of Light, has offered to give this amazing 6 light, Simply White Architectural Chandelier (a $359.00 value), to one of the creative and brilliant readers who so kindly visits this blog.
Simply, leave a comment everyday, pumping up my ego by telling me I look 10 years younger or 10 pounds skinnier on this post, including the words, GIMME A LIGHT, by Thursday, April 23, 2009 5pm PST.
This prize is available to residents of the lower 48 United States {sorry Sarah Palin}. There’s only one entry per e-mail address allowed. One winner will be selected using random.org and announced later in the week. light and love, good luck and all that......

GIMMIE A LIGHTplease, oh skinny, beautiful young maiden. did we mention funny and talented?

ps- who are these children you sometimes mention on your blog? nieces? they surely couldn't be yours, since they are far too old for it to have been physically possible for you to have them at such a young age...

thick enough to win? my recently laid off friend sarah is redecorating to cheer herself up- this goes straight to her if i win! so c'mon random.org, help a brothah help a sistah out!

Grins and thanks for the fun memory!!!
