The Copper Poppy


Since it tis the season for giving I have put together a month of giveaways for YOU (this is the final one;) as a thank you for following and reading the blog.  It's my small way to say "thank you" and to let you know how much I appreciate your continued interest and support, and how grateful I am to those who take the time to leave comments.  
It means so much to me to have you here.


I'd like to introduce you to Alyssa of The Copper Poppy!  Alyssa creates custom hand-stamped accessories for pets and their people.  Knowing how many of you are dog lovers I knew you would  love this giveaway!   I met Alyssa on Instagram- she and her husband left the big city (Chicago) to move to New Hampshire a couple of years ago- sound familiar?!  She lives on a charming antique farmstead with two precious dogs (Darby and Poppy) and two beautiful horses (Moxie and Finnegan).  It wasn't until I started corresponding with Alyssa about doing a giveaway that I found out that she used to read my blog back when she lived in the Chicago suburbs and she would dream about how "she" could possibly make such a move one day!  A job opportunity for her husband made the dream a reality three years ago.  Like us, Alyssa and her husband love it here!  


Here is a small sampling of her charming pieces for dogs, cats and horses...











Alyssa also makes jewelry and keepsakes for weddings, gifts, anniversaries, etc.
(This one looks like it could have been made just for me!)


Alyssa has kindly offered to giveaway 2- $30 gift certificates!

To enter the giveaway please visit The Copper Poppy , then come back to the blog and simply leave a comment naming a piece in the collection you would choose if you won!  
Once again, if you are commenting as anonymous please remember to include your email address, and if you are entering with a google account, please make sure there is an email associated with the account- many google accounts do not have an email, so this is important!  If you are uncertain leave your email in your comment to be safe!  (You can't win if I don't have an email address available.)  The giveaway will run for 3 days and will close on Tuesday, December 31st at 8 p.m. EST.  
The giveaway is open to U.S. and Canada only (sorry to all others.)
The winner will be contacted via email.


Alyssa is also offering a 15% discount to my readers for the duration of the giveaway!  Simply enter HOUSELOVE15 at checkout.


The giveaway is now closed.

The giveaway ended with 127 comments; however, 1 of those comments was a reply to the original comment with an email address, which counts as one, so that left a total number of true entries at 126.  
A random number generator chose the following entry.  Congratulations pammbw and Auntiepatch!
