It's Another Contest with Giveaway!

Only because I've said it a gazillion times before, I'm sure you all know just how much I "enjoy" doing laundry. Since it's not my favorite household chore but one that must be done I decided today, after doing a few loads, to run a contest! All entries must be submitted by Monday the 11th! I want you, for one week, to collect every odd object that comes out of your washer or dryer then take a picture of it. Send the picture to me and I will randomly pick one picture to be the winner! I will send you 3 bars of my soap...a grapefruit & ginger bar, a tea tree oil & oatmeal facial bar and a juniper berry & eucalyptus bar. Invite your friends to play along too! Winner will be announced on Tuesday the 12th.


This is what inspired the contest, after about four loads of laundry today this is what I had...a couple of Band-aids, 35 cents, miscellaneous hardware, plastic wrap, a cap to something, a candy wrapper, a chip clip, some cardboardy strip of paper, a grasshopper and a hair pin. Now most of this stuff might come as a surprise to some but I live with three boys so you never know what you are going to find, the one that intrigued me and sent me down the contest lane was the hair pin. The last time I used or had hair pins in the house was on my wedding day over 13 years ago!!

Ooo ooo ooo do I get extra points if I can tell you where I think the hair pin came from?.....I bet it was on the floor in the horse trailer, I still use them to tame my wild hair the best I can while showing. Normally some of them get scattered about the horse trailer.

What a great idea for a contest! I've been doing laundry all day yesterday and finishing today, and so far just a quarter and a crumpled receipt. But I'll enter anyway. :) Once I finish laundry, that is...

...someone's got some 'splainin' to do... : ) How fun!! Love all the stuff you found. Brings back memories! I never find anything fun in my laundry any more...maybe a coin I forgot I stuck in a pocket-that's about it...

This is so unfair.... I don't have Boys to leave things in pockets. I used to have to check my room mates pockets. That is after the inside of my dryer turned red from a pen. Sadly, no room mates, anymore. I'm with Ritter, just the occasional coin. Auntie K.

LOL! If it were a points game then you certainly would get extra points for the hair pin Shana!

Remember, it doesn't matter what you find, just that you send me a picture (or a list if you cant send me a picture) of the items you do find! One little coin and you can be entered into the drawing!
