ANTIQUE BOOK Giveaway!

It's that time again!











This time I have for your reading pleasure...
Ann's Great Adventure by, E.E. Cowper
Published by Blackie & Son Ltd.

There is an inscription on the inside cover that reads:

Hilda Haynes
3rd Prize II Class
Eynesbury Church Sunday School
Christmas 1937
A.R. (Unreadable) Phillips


So what's even better than the super exciting cover...

And even more exciting back cover...














IS WHAT'S inside. Here are Some treasures that are tucked among the pages of this book. How cool is that, right? I LOVE Treasures!



So would you like to own this book?
You do?

Here you go. These are the directions. Pretty simple this time:

1. Leave a comment = 1 entry
2. Follow the blog. Become part of the James Gang Outlaws. Already are? Just Remind me. It counts as an automatic 2nd entry.
3. Really, really want this? Advertise it on your blog. (You can even use my pictures) Then come tell me about it. For every person that comes here and leaves a comment from your blog and mentions your name--you get another entry. Plus, they'll be entered as well.

Good Luck!
Contest Ends Next Friday!

  1. First of all, Jenni, you look positively RAVISHING in these photos! And I'm not saying this to get any extra points (although, I'd never turn them down!!). Of course, I'm one of your loyal followers. Come to think of it, you won my only contest to date, so wouldn't it follow that I'd win yours? (*grin*wink*) I'll add this on my next blog posting and be sure to let you know.;-)

    Did I mention I love antique books?

  2. Debra--LOL! Flattery gets you everywhere! LOL! And I ALWAYS look better at night... I'm such a night owl! Thanks! And, I LOVE antique books too! I love them so much, that it hit me--OMGosh! I wonder if my friends like antique books too? LOL! They're sooo cheap here. I've just collected a bunch for blog giveaways, that way I won't be tempted to keep them. I already have a ton!

  8. Love the blog! Your black and white background is the same design as certificate paper I purchased on Wednesday! Love the look and feel. Great idea to give away classics! Old books are full of charm and a few other gems as well. Awesome story about your son, I love the way children are so straight-forward.
