A bag full of treasures (for you!)

Micaela is one of my favorite people and she is having a giveaway of her favorite things!

Isn't that a sweet idea?  And let me tell you--it's not one to be missed.  A serious Monday pick-me-up (God knows I could use one).  Wanna know what she's offering?

 All of those lovely things (UO blank polaroid, rose magnet, bow earrings, Falsies mascara, Milano cookies, collectable coffee mug, mixed tape of Micaela's favorite songs, and The Time Traveler's Wife)

tucked into this adorable tote:

Go enter to win here, and add her sweet little giveaway button to your blog for an extra chance!

But before you do that, tell me this:  If you had a giveaway of your favorite things, what would it include?  I think mine would consist of:

*a 1/2 pound of Blue Bottle coffee
*a Pilot pen
*OPI for Sephora Only Gold for Me topcoat nail polish
*some big, dangly earrings
*a book of poems (maybe Li-Young Lee's The City in Which I Love You)

Tell me about yours!

p.s.--I just discovered another lovely giveaway at Blue Eyed Freckle!  Enter here to win these beauties:

She's always got tons of adorable crafts, tutorials, etc. on her blog, so hurry on over!

What an amazing giveaway! Very generous! I loveeee her choice of The Time Traveler's Wife that is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE book EVER.

If pickles didn't cost so much money to ship, I would send them.

I would definitely include some cute bobby pins, maybe a scarf, a journal, some B&BW soap... I might do this one day!

How fun. I'm a new convert to the Falsies mascara - love it. My bag would have Nutella, lip balm, Topic candy bars from England and probably lots of other food and old Cary Grant movies.
I'm also having a giveaway right now so pop over everyone :)

Hi there! Found ya on Mingle Monday! I love your main picture of the Golden Gate Bridge. I LOVE SF! I live in South Louisiana, but my husband lived in Oakland for a few months.
