The Hope Jar Giveaway!

This post is dedicated to the kindness of strangers...


Lidy from French Garden House blog, a lady I had never met before emailed me (after I had visited her site) and asked me if she could feature The Hope Jar website on her blog. I was so touched by her kindness - what a sweet thing to do! I am doing this post in honor of her and her lovely website
French Garden House
where she sells "antiques and shabby decor to romance your home and garden." The site, as well as her items, are GORGEOUS!

Thank-you so much Lidy, you are a stranger no more - but now a blogging friend!



The Hope Jar™



For those of you who aren't familiar, The Hope Jar contains 30 daily affirmations professionally printed on 85 pound cardstock in a lovely re-usable glass jar. It's a unique and special way to show someone you care. There are currently five jars in the line-up - Pregnancy, Marriage, Friendship, Heartbreak and Grief.

For instance, if your girlfriend is suffering due to a broken heart, than the "Heartbreak" jar just may be the thing to cure her. The "Friendship" jar is a unique and fun way to show your best friend that you can't live without her! ... On a more serious note, if someone you care about has just lost a loved one, the "Grief" jar is a unique sympathy gift - better than a card or flowers, your sentiments last 30 days. The Pregnancy and Marriage Hope Jars are filled with warm and funny quotes and make lovely, unique shower gifts.


*CONTEST TIME*


Anyone who leaves a comment on this post will get an entry to win their choice of any Hope Jar! I will pick a winner on Wednesday September 12th and announce the winner Thursday morning.

*Hope Jars now come with vintage-style charms!


Which will YOU choose?


"Grief"


"Marriage"


"Heartbreak"


"Friendship"

"Pregnancy"

Since I hold the distinctive honor of being the first person to ever purchase these jars (hey, it ain't no Oscar, but it will do!) I can truly write a testimonial as to how awesome they are.

If I were to ever receive another one, cough cough, ahem, I would choose the Friendship Jar. :)

I was GOING to try and go through my favorites today and scale back a bit (hit delete). And then I get to yours and have added 2 or 3 new ones, so thanks for that:-)

Jill said...

What a fabulous thing you've created! I'm sure finding just the right quotes while putting them together must have been quite a job. But satisfying! Count me in for your drawing!

Hi, I was taking a moment to view one of my favorite blogs, the little french garden when she so selflessly sent her viewers to you. What a lovely blog you have written. I am so happy to have been directed here. I like the idea of these jars for gifts and of course the wheels in my mind are now turning to figure who best will need a jar of joy, hope, friendship....I will be back here again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea. Susan

I found you from French Garden House, too. And I've really enjoyed reading your blog. It's now on my regular "route".

I'm especially loving what you did with that old cabinet back in August with the wallpaper and pompoms.
