GIVEAWAY #2: The Anglin Artisan is Giving Away... (PRIZE CLAIMED)


A $15.00 Gift Certificate to their Lovely Online Store

Once my sister talked me into buying an expensive serving dish. When I arrived home with my dish and explained to my husband why I had purchased such an expensive piece, I remember saying something to the effect of, "I know I shouldn't have bought it, but Lisa (my sister) and I were imagining how much fun it would be to take to a party. Everyone will look at it and ask who brought such a lovely dish."

At that point I remember my husband laughing and asking, "Are you serious?"

And the thing is, six years later I can confidently report, that everyone does ask about the serving dish when I take it to a party.
It's fun to go to a party.
It's even more fun to bring along food in an attractive dish.

This is exactly what was going through my mind when I saw The Anglin Artisan's bread baskets. They are attractive, of high-quality, and reversible. What a terrific combo!


This is pumpkin bread I made to take to a party last week. I placed it in a bread basket from The Anglin Artisan and away we went. Did people ask about the basket? Yes they did. Are two of my friends placing orders for a basket of their own? Yes they are.


I also get out my bread basket for dinner when serving my family rolls and bread (yes, we had more rolls, I just forgot to take the picture before we started eating). Why save all your best pieces just for parties? You can use them to brighten up meals at home with your family as well. Pssst...Don't tell anyone, but this is the same basket I placed the pumkin bread in for my party last week, but this time it is reversed. Two baskets at one low price--very clever indeed.


December is a few months away. But why wait until the last minute to buy a gift for your kids' teachers? Order a basket from The Anglin Artisan, fill it with pencils, scissors, and what-have- you and you will be thanking yourself when the holidays roll around and you have one less thing to worry about.

Need a unique gift for a friend? This basket will do. Fill it with goodies and off it goes to make someone you know very happy:

But french bread baskets are not the only items The Anglin Artisan offers. They also specialize in very lovely reusable bags, skirts, and baby quilts. You can find all of these items by visiting their shoppe here.

DISCOUNT:
Today The Anglin Artisan is offering you 10% off any purchase (shipping is not included in the discount). To receive this discount just add a comment to the purchase "GIVEAWAY10" and The Anglin Artisan will refund you 10%. This will expire on August 3rd.

Today you can enter to win the $15.00 Gift Certificate from The Anglin Artisan up to THREE times today. This contest is only open to those with U.S. or Canadian addresses.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit The Anglin Artisan here. Check out all of their products and then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and what you would use your $15.00 gift certificate on if you win.
Example: Jane Doe: I would use my gift certificate towards a Yellow Breeze Skirt.

For a third entry, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and since we have talked about dinner in this post, tell us what you will be having for dinner tonight.
Example: Jane Doe: We will be BBQ'n tonight (a hamburger for my husband, dogs for the kids, and salmon for me). And our squash and zuchinni are ready from the garden, so we will have steamed veggies. Yummy!

The winners of the $15.00 gift certificate from The Anglin Artisan will be announced Tuesday, July 28th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks and have a great day!
