Give-Away extended to June 22!

{This giveaway is now over.  
Go here for the latest GIVEAWAY NEWS}

Dear Readers,

I promised a giveaway and then I had the chance to get-away for a little vacation and I jumped at the opportunity.  For those of you left hanging on the edge of your seats, I'm so sorry for the delay!  The good news is I've extended the deadline and I've come up with several easy ways you can increase your chances of winning. 

All FOLLOWERS are eligible for the drawing.  For more chances at winning, here's what you can do:

Between now and June 22nd:

1.  Make a comment on any post -past or present- and each time you do, your name will be added to the drawing. 

2.  If you leave your first name and your country with any comment, I'll put your name in TWICE for each comment containing this information.

Note:  Your first name and country will suffice--no need to leave any further comment unless you feel like it.   Just take the time to leave your  name and your country -on any as many posts as you like- and your name will go in the hat twice each time you do.  (Feel free to include your city if you like, but it's not necessary to be eligible.)

3.  Lastly, if you email me a favorite recipe I will add FIVE extra chances at winning.  (Be sure to include written permission for me to re-print and/or publish your recipe in a future post.) 

This is the opportunity to get your name in the drawing literally hundreds of times!   And what's at stake?

A $100 gift card
to shop in the emporium and select anything your heart desires!

Best of luck!

Hi Debra, Marsha, Dani, Kim and Zuzu! Thank you for your messages and your ongoing support of linen and lavender. Best of luck to you in the drawing! ~LeAnn

Kim: Would you mind emailing me? Easier to respond to you there. I'd be happy to give you some ideas and a list of my favorite places in Rome. :)

Carla R from Santa Barbara, CA USA:
I received your recipe for Lavender Honey --Thank you! Putting 5 entries in for you today!
Let me know if you continue to have an issue signing in to comment. From what you described, I don't think it is happening on linen and lavender, but must have been an error with your system at the time? Not sure why that would be.
----If anybody else has experienced a problem, please let me know via email:
Thanks again, Carla! ~LeAnn
P.S. I'll add 2 additional entries and count your attempt to comment. :)

Alors voici donc l'occasion de se dévoiler.
Je suis votre blog depuis quelques temps déjà et c'est à chaque fois un pur bonheur de découvrir les images que vous collectez.
J'habite dans le Nord de la France où nous restaurons, avec mon mari, une vieille ferme, pour laquelle nous collectons des vieux meubles et matériaux anciens. Et votre blog est pour nous une source d'inspiration inégalable, puisqu'il présente un univers très proche de celui que nous recherchons pour notre lieu de vie.
Merci donc de partager vos trésors, et merci pour ce give-away qui fera forcément un heureux.
Sandrine de France.

Merci beaucoup. Your words are like music to my ears. :)
Best wishes in the creation of a beautiful life in Northern France.
Warm regards,

LeAnn ~ linen and lavender said...

Thank you so much. I really like the word you used "refreshed" -It is fun for me passing beautiful things along to others and I love hearing that something I enjoyed is received and enjoyed by someone else. It is my pleasure to include you in the drawing and I wish you all the best. ~LeAnn
