It's Giveaway Time!!

So much has been going on over here at Sweet Cottage that even the puppers are exhausted!
However, we will take pause to celebrate a fabulous new book that is out titled
Blogging For Bliss, by Tara Frey. I know that most of you have undoubtedly read or heard about it - but for those who have not - it is a sweet book full of tips on blogging. Many of our blog friends are featured and we are just soooooo excited for them! Huh, Doogs and FiFi!? They say "Aroooooo!"
One of our blog friends, Artsy Mama, is having a giveaway for a copy of Blogging For Bliss. Be sure to stop over on this post to enter to win!
Now for my giveaway .... You will be able to order one book of your choice from AMAZON.com up to a 25.00 value. (I will also pay for the shipping). Blogging For Bliss is available to buy on Amazon. I have my copy and LOVE it!!

This is how it works.....
Just leave a comment that you would like to be entered to win my giveaway.
If you don't have a blog, leave me your email address with your blog comment. This way I will have a chance to contact you should you be the lucky winner!!
I will choose the winner on the evening of August 20th (Pacific Time). At the end of the contest you will simply go to Amazon.com, pick out the book and then let me know which one it is that you would like. I will then order it for you and have it sent to your home. Easy Peasy...

Now run along and go shopping on Amazon.com!

Have a sweet weekend! xx

What a nice give away that is! Hey, we call our girl FiFi at times, too!

And, great minds think alike as Rory & Fiona are featured on my blog today. Of course because Fi is so dark (at my house at least!) she looks like an ink spot...but I hope you'll visit them and share the Scottie love.

Aroo to you, too!

Oh, how sweet! I love shopping on Amazon and even did a link to Amazon on my post yesterday! What FUN! Thank you!

Oh my goodness, Becky, what a thoughtful and generous giveaway! what FUN. and just what I need... another book! (I am a book-a-holic; they are overflowing my shelves, but I cannot resist a chance at another one!)

My Dion says Hi to your puppers. His favorite thing to do with a book is eat it, or knock it out of my hand so I will pay more attention to him.

Yes, enter me, please. Have a lovely Saturday!
