Giveaway ... what what!

Happy Friday everyone ..... I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with family members across the country, but I have quickly learned that blogging for me is so much more.  I just reached 300 followers (thank you thank you to all my lovely readers), and it only seems right to celebrate with an amazing giveaway!  

I have the pleasure of hosting a unique item that I am sure you will all find applicable for yourself, a friend, or family member!  The lady behind it all has an Etsy shop with handblown and handscuplted glass that she creates with a furnace that runs at 2100 degrees.  That's some heat .... and the glass is the consistency of honey.  At this point, she uses various tools to apply color and shape the glass.  All of her designs are inspired by functionality, and that is why she calls them FUNctional Objects for Everday Life.  Talk about crafty, so hop on over to her site to see all her work!

I personally think this key holder is exquisite and would be perfect at my front door, but more so feel everyone could see it for themselves, a gift for the holidays, etc.

Here is how to enter:
1.  Become a Follwer

2.  Visit TannerGlass Etsy shop and leave a comment here regarding your favorite piece and why.
*must-do to be considered for the giveaway

Additional entries:
3.  Become a Follower of Life as a Glassblower

4.  For mentioning this giveaway on your blog -- let me know if you do.

Don't worry, if you don't have a blog, you can still enter through the comment section but make sure you leave your email address!

***The drawing is only good for those in the continental US and will end Oct 15th at 10pm PST.  Then, the winner be will announced the following Friday!!

Looking forward to this being fun for all -- Good luck!

i have been following your blog for a few weeks now, since jax linked.

thank you for stopping by & commenting on mine! =)

i absolutely adore the pink pinch bud vase. i collect vases similar to this, but they are all clear and how neat would it be to have colored ones not just to go with the other vases but to start a colored collection to match my girls' room! [pink & purple in there!!] LOL! i would seriously have to buy her out of each color! =)

i became a follower of tannerglass, which my 5 year old will thoroughly enjoy she loves watching the process of making handblown glass items! also became a follower of life as a glassblower and mentioned your giveaway on my blog. =)

thanks so much! =)

What a great giveaway! I just found your blog through miscellaneous meredith and have become a follower.

I love all of her vases but the Blue Belted Vase-Circles is my absolute favorite. It would look perfect in the entry of my new apartment.

I am a follower of Life as a Glassblower also. It's so neat to see people's creative process.

I'm a follower of yours.

I couldn't pick just one thing on her site-I love all the key holders, all the cute little magnets and the glass rings-lovely!

I'm a follower of Life as a Glassblower!

Mrs. Potts said...

I'm a follower. :)

I really like the best of Both Worlds Dog & Cat Magnets. That would be my favorite item, but I also really like the Leash Holder Big Dog Big Heart.


I'm putting this on my giveaway section on my blog too!

High Heels and Huntin' Boots said...

What a LOVELY giveaway! I am already a follower of your blog. I LOVE all her stuff, but I think the tiny leaves magnets are my favorites because I am currently obsessed with decorating w/ black, white and red in my house at the moment. I also became a follower of the glass blowers blog!

About why you can't run with an iPod during the half marathon...most regulated races-triathlons, marathons, etc. don't allow any type of headgear because of the number of people it can be a safety hazard. Like if you're running a long and someone comes up behind you to pass and you are jammin' to your tunes and don't hear them. It can cause a lot of problems because all of the "traffic". Crazy, huh?!

Jenny DB said...

OK I did it:)

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

SO cute!!
I love the push pins Tanner Glass has. The Think Spring ones are cute! I am always looking for cute push pins for my board at work and for my office at home!
