Blogiversary Giveaway

It's been a while since I've done a giveaway on the blog and since we've just passed my two year blogiversary,  and since I just had my 100,000th pageview, and since it's that time in between winter and spring that is just so....so....transitionary-al-ish,  I thought we needed to give something away.  And, I thought it would be nice to give something away that is red.

Red is warm.   Red is good.  Red is the color that gets me from Christmas to March.

So I collected this cute little red whisk and this awesome grater/zester with the attachment that holds stuff like a nutmeg for you as you grate so you grate only the nutmeg and not your knuckles.   Because we don't want so see that kind of red.  They're both made by KitchenAid.


And I wrapped it all up with one of my own handwoven towels in a fabu red plaid, with stripes in cherry, lemon, lime, orange and sky blue.   I love these towels.  I wove them myself.  100% cotton.   Machine washed and dried already, so you don't have to treat it daintily.   Use it!   Love it!   Then toss it in the washer and dryer with all the rest of your towels.

The Rules:
  • Leave a comment telling me what you're looking forward to this spring.
  • Please consider friending/following me on facebook or Twitter or Google + [Links on my sidebar, near the top - that's what the barns are.]
  • Please consider voting in the cookbook poll at the top of my sidebar.
  • Open only to folks in the U.S.
Giveaway will be open until 11:59pm March 1st, 2013.  The winner will be selected at random from the comments and posted later that week.  Please only comment once.  

If you want to see my other handwoven towels,  here's the link to the towel section of my Etsy shop.  I'm sure you'll find a color you love.

  1. Hi Robin! I'm looking forward to Spring Break, when I get to work uninterrupted on my latest project: a cultural history of canning in the U.S. (Also, I can't wait for crocus explosions on old homesites. And rhubarb.)

    1. Rhubarb! I watch mine obsessively this time of year to see when the first starts happen. None yet....[but soon!]

  2. Spring, early lettuce, ramps, outside for dying, flowers, longer days, softer air, peepers and being in WV more mud!

  5. Hi Robin,

    I'm looking forward to warmer weather; getting outside and working in the yard. I have plans (thanks to your blog and the Baker Creek Seed Catalog) to re-work the front garden. I also want to create a patio on the side of the house.

    You are such an inspiration.

  6. I'm waiting eagerly for some asparagus spears that I planted last year to show themselves. Probably won't pick this year, but hoping. And the rhubarb, although I do believe I will have to plant more! Today was a beautiful day to work outside! Congrats and happy blog-iversary! :-)

    1. Oh, and don't consider me for the giveaway...you already do so much for me in RL! And you ARE an inspiration!

  7. You needn't consider me for the giveaway either. I'm just here to say you're a wonder. And EVERYONE SHOULD BUY YOUR TOWELS. I have several. More than several. I heart them to little tiny pieces. I still one day want to commission you to weave me a bath sheet. Or at least a bath towel. But we'll wait until you get a loom the size of a garage so you can accomplish that.

    Way to go on the 100,000th page view! Way to be a blogerita!!!

    Also, Hi Murph!

  8. Hi Robin! I'm sooooo looking forward to warmer weather! Then I can start riding my bike to school again. It saves so much on gas! I miss having a yard and seeing all my flowers bloom, but working in floral makes it feel like spring time even in winter.

  12. Happy Blogiversary! I'm so looking forward to our new veggie garden addition this spring. We've been working hard in between storms getting the boxes in and can hardly wait for planting - come on May. Would love to win your lovely towel.

  13. So looking forward this Spring to watching my bees that survive the winter exit their hives on their first foraging trips (assuming they make it through the winter)!! In addition to the emerging bee activity, I'm starting some raised beds in my garden too. We're suppose to get hit by a big snow in the middle of this week so Spring won't be here soon enough!

  14. The kids and I love to go camping outdoors. We're desperately waiting for the warm weather to return so we get get back out to our favorite parks and sleep under the stars and next to a campfire.
