So here it is, my first giveaway.

Up for grabs: some bath/body products made right here in Western Maine! I won these in a silent auction to benefit the local community health organization and the nearby hospital's breast cancer center.

If you win the giveaway, you have your choice of 3 of the following:

1. Small lotion - Tangerine Spice
2. Small lotion - Apple Blossom
3. Small lotion - Angel Type
4. Large lotion - Orange
5. Body Mist - Hyacinth
6. Bar of soap - Fresh Linen
7. Bar of soap - Sandalwood

Just so you are aware, if you prefer strong-smelling bath/body products, these probably aren't for you. The smell is very, very subtle, though definitely still present. :)

To enter, you have to leave me a comment to let me know you are entering, and add a verse of your favorite poem or a favorite quote.

Giveaway ends on Monday, July 27, so get cracking! :)


  1. I'm entering!
    And including the first bit of one of my favorite poems by Richard Wilbur, "Love Calls Us To The Things Of This World."

    The eyes open to a cry of pulleys,
    And spirited from sleep, the astounded
    Hangs for a moment bodiless and
    As false dawn.
    Outside the open window
    The morning air is all awash with

    Some are in bed-sheets, some are
    in blouses,
    Some are in smocks: but truly there
    they are.
    Now they are rising together in calm
    Of halcyon feeling, filling whatever they
    With the deep joy of their impersonal

  2. This is so exciting!

    My favorite is The Good-Morrow by John Donne. It was so hard to just pick one portion of the poem, but here it is:
    "Where can we find two better hemispheres
    Without sharp north, without declining west ?
    Whatever dies, was not mix'd equally;
    If our two loves be one, or thou and I
    Love so alike that none can slacken, none can die."

  3. Friendship is one mind in two bodies.

    Hard to have just one good quote but this one is great!

    What a fantastic idea for a giveaway. I'll post a link for you on my blog. (as soon as I stop ant hunting.)

  4. Woo hoo! I'm so excited about this giveaway!

    "A good photograph is knowing where to stand." Ansel Adams

  5. oh I trust you... as if I can figure out twitter to verify!

    oh hey i am going to go link you in this giveaway to yours right now.

  6. Enter me:

    "Me gustas cuando callas porque estás como ausente,
    y me oyes desde lejos, y mi voz no te toca.
    Parece que los ojos se te hubieran volado
    y parece que un beso te cerrara la boca"
    -Poema 22, Pablo Neruda

    Hands down my favorite poem

  7. Omigosh! I am in Waterville! Nice to see another Mainer blogging! Now if we would only have a summer instead of all this rain! My fave saying is If you love something, set it free-if it comes back to you, its yours-if it doesn't it never was. Have a great weekend!

  8. I'd love to enter!

    "When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden." Kahil Gibran

  9. "what won't kill you, will make you strong".

    simple and true.
