"Be it a jewel or toy, not the prize gives the joy, but the striving to win the prize."
~ Owen Meredith (Edward Robert Bulwer-Lytton)
While true in many instances of life, this may be one exception to Sir Bulwer-Lytton's poetic quote. A few weeks ago I learned of a Give~Away via Lily Lemontree. The host was Sarah of My Little Boudoir, and she was generous enough to host a give~away to win a signed copy of this fabulous book:
Summer at Tiffany
by Marjorie Hart.
Having a rare spare minute or two, I entered the give~away and spent a few hours day dreaming (while ironing, that is) about how great it would be if I actually won...just the cover photograph had sent me reeling into old~world New York...
Half awake, waiting for the coffee to finish perking just after 6:00 o'clock this morning, I opened my "mail" and found this:
Good evening. I wanted to let you know that you were selected (using
random.org) as the winner of the signed copy of "Summer at Tiffany" on
If you'd like to send me your mailing address, I will get it sent off to you
Here is the link for the post as a reminder:
Congratulations and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Thanks for your
Oh joy of joys!! The prize giveth the joy!
Thank you, My Little Boudoir, you made my day!
