~ The 4th Annual Flea Market Style Magazine Giveaway ~ and a few other goodies! Giveaway Closed! Winner Announced on * Tuesday, March 19, 2013

*Giveaway Closed*

It's that time again!
The 4th Annual Giveaway of
~ Flea Market Style ~
Plus a few other goodies to help 
you welcome Spring into your world!!

I look forward to doing this giveaway each year.
Sharing something I love with a lucky winner!
One of my favorite magazines.
And a few sweet things to welcome a new season.

Do you know the story behind the Flea Market Style Giveaway?

It all began when the very first issue hit stores.
I had waited and waited for this magazine to hit news-stands.
And I couldn't find a copy anywhere....
They were selling out the day they would arrive.

After weeks of literally stopping at 
any store that carried magazines, I finally found a copy.
Oh, happy day!
And then being the ultra-sweet guy that J is ~
well he found one too!
And surprised me with it on the same day I bought a copy.

Not wanting to to take away the joy he felt in giving,
I decided to use my copy in a giveaway.
The day I put up the giveaway post 
he decided to check out my blog!

"I can't believe you are giving away the magazine 
I drove all the way to Knoxville to buy!"
And then I told him that I had found 
a copy the same day he drove to Knoxville!

I wrote this little story in a blog post.
And Flea Market Style found it and asked if 
they could use it as a post on the FMS blog!
Of course, I said..you bet!
And that, dear friends, is how the 
Annual Flea Market Style Magazine Giveaway
came to be.

Now, let's get on with it!

Decorating our front porch for each season
is something I look forward to.
I like quirky.
And whimsical.
And these giveaway items caught my eye!

An adorable metal, 
"Happy Springtime" sign that you can hang.

I love me some butterflies!
This little guy even has curly antennas :)

And my favorite of these three ~
This little duck.
He makes me smile.

Wonderful giveaway Misha! I love Spring! The warmer temperatures, watching everything turn green and bloom, working in the garden, spending more time outside again... But this year the best part is that we got our first ever chicks and are building them a coop right now! :-)

You KNOW I'm totally in for the giveaway! I'd LOVE to be able to browse that magazine-I'm a sucker for a good flea market find ^.^

The other Springtime goodies are fun, too! I especially like the duck/goose :)

I can't say I have a favorite thing, but one of the tops reasons I love Spring is the smell. It just smells so FRESH!

Thank you for this fabulous giveaway my friend :)

Western chorus frogs are my fave! They usually sing around 2-25 here.. however this year the snow was 2 ft deep, so I wait... :) Thanks for hosting the giveaway for this wonderful magazine, Misha. I love the original back-story on this. Isn't it funny how the simple things mean the most? ♥-Tammy

Kelly said...

I love the warmer tempuratures of Spring! I would like to be entered too. Misha, that duck makes me smile too! :)

Cindy said...

Miss Misha, I LOVE your story about how the giveaway began, totally melts my heart!! :-) My fav thing of spring is that dandelions start popping up right away, I only love dandies because my babies always run out to pick them to give me fresh "flowers" all spring long! Making them Dandelion crowns, and singing and poppin the dandie heads off! Oh and it smells nice too! Oh and please put me in your contest, will you notify me through FB if I win please? :-) Thank you.

Love your blog - all the way from East Yorkshire, England. The thing I like best about spring? The way the birds know - the way their colour changes,their body language perks up, their song changes. Whether waking up to the sound of the sparrows rustling in my eaves, or the song of the wrens and robins as I walk my dogs by the riverside, there is no better sign of spring.

Great give-away items!

For me the best part of spring coming is knowing that the time has come for us chronically ill to be able to spend a little bit of time outdoors without being in ridiculous amounts of pain during/after because of the bitter coldness! Just because we are unwell why do we have to spend so much time indoors in bed? We can take the bed (well lounger/hammock/deck chair) to the garden and relax with the sounds of the birds nursing our negative winter thoughts into positive spring summer ones!

I remember that first giveaway! I can't believe we've "known" each other for so long! :)
The best part of spring for me is getting rid of heavy bulky clothes and watching all of the new life outside. And the part of spring where all the mud dries up.

Hi Misha I think the thing I love most about the spring is the smell of the bush with the trees and the earth thawing it is hard to explain unless you have been there. I love it. I love hearing the birds that had flown down to your warm southern states returning back to Canada a sure sign that the weather will warm up very soon.
Love the story about your giveaway Misha. I would love to be entered.B

I remember that first giveaway, I can't believe this is the fourth one already. My how time flies! The best thing about spring is its warm enough to enjoy the outdoors but not so hot that you can't enjoy it. You know, like summer which is far too humid in these parts.

Oke, for once, I'll sign up, but if you 'draw' me, you may send these goodies to Donna (Sugar&Spice..) for me.... Is that oke too??

Love the butterfly (who doesn't?)and I'm sure Donna will too.

Have a good weekend, give all creatures - including your hubby- surrounding you a big Dutch hug from all creatures over here!!

Spring in a wonderful time and season of this year; everything is so bright, fresh and coming out from hiding during the cold Winter season; I love this season, perhaps my favorite as everything is growing with a new hope!!! All the very bright and vibrant colors and the wonderful new fresh smells - a true blessing. Also this time of the year was when Jesus Christ arose from the dead to give us all eternal live, which to me is the very most important time of the year - it is truly a blessing to have this seaason - Weona - trussell.r@charter.net - I would certainly enjoy your prizes - Thank you very much for having this give away -

Love your Flea Market Style giveaways Misha! Funny and coincidental thing.... my mom and I were just looking at the June 2012 issue a few hours ago. I LOVE that magazine. Mom & her hubby have been at our place for the last 10 days or so, taking care of our animal menagerie while we celebrated our 5th in Hawaii.... I appreciate them sooooo much... and she found my 2012 issue of the mag, and her tastes are, of course, so similar to mine, so she was loving the ideas in this mag. Would love to win in your giveaway Misha.

Side note: I truly hope you are feeling better. Sending many hugs and good wishes your way -- feel better SOON!!!! :)

xoxo ~ Susan

I need some spring! We got more snow last night. Blah! Love the cabinet in the background of the duck pic! How gorgeous is that?! Miss you and hope this means you are feeling much better. Give my buddy a pet from me!

dgmills said...

Happy Spring to you! My favorite spring thing is the smell of the grass in the mountains. I can't wait to get back to NC and smell that fragrance.
I would love to win the magazine and would spend hours enjoying it.
It is such a great story, how the giveaway started.
Thanks, dgmills@tampabay.rr.com
