GIVEAWAY CLOSED! 30 Days of Standing COMPLETE! PAT ME ON THE BACK AND CALL ME ASSOME!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!

I DIIIIIIIIIIIID IIIIIIIIIIIIIT!

For 30 days, I stood instead of sat. I didn't think it could be done, but I did it!

OK enough of that (for now) I'm not going to bore you with my reflections of the month (yet) because now we must CELEBRATE WITH A GIVEAWAY!

Yes, to congratulate myself, I am giving something away to you, my readers. That's how amazing I am.

And see, this one is extra special. Not only is the item from my partner in crime's (she's also my beef) incredible etsy shop, it has special meaning. Extra special meaning.

I must admit I laughed heartily when I came up with the whole acronym thing throughout my standing posts, and my first acronym was for my first obstacle to standing, my ASS (Accidentally Started to Sit) moments. I have never said the word, or typed the word ASS so much in my life.

It's funny. It is. I ASSed a lot. And you who tried to stand along with me, your ASSes were all over the place.

See? And to celebrate my accomplishment, and the ASS acronym, I am giving away this...

this...

this...

Donkey!!! Isn't he ASSOME???



See? Oh man. Am I the only one laughing here? HEEE HAAAAAW HEEE HAAAAAAAAAAAW!

Maybe standing has taken all the blood from my brain. Anyway...

This donkey is VINTAGE, and brought to you by Vintage Umbrella, the HOTTEST new vintage shop on etsy! I'm not being cheesy! He a spicy one I tell you, as he is the proud carrier of two little bales of hay, which are actually salt and pepper shakers!




But please, don't shake your...donkey. He is vintage. You will need to take good care of him, make him a clever little centerpiece, a conversation piece! Sit your...donkey on a side table, or somewhere on a bookshelf. Better yet look through Vintage Umbrella and buy him some friends!

You want to win him, don't you? You bet your donkey you do! Here's how to enter:


MANDATORY:
1. Visit Vintage Umbrella on Etsy, and come back here to comment, telling me what your favorite item is! This counts as one entry.


OPTIONAL:
2. Become a fan on Facebook, come back here and comment, telling me you did so. Once verified this will count as one entry.

3. Tweet about this! Tweet with a link to this giveaway, and mention me, (@insanitykim). Come back here and comment with the tweet link. YOU CAN DO THIS ONCE A DAY FOR THE DURATION OF THE GIVEAWAY, GIVING YOU 10 SEPARATE ENTRIES.

4. Blog about this! Blog with a link back to this post about this giveaway and receive THREE more entries! Come back here and comment with the link to your post.

5. BUY SOMETHING! Go to Vintage Umbrella, use the code BLISS15 at checkout to receive 15% off your order! Purchases should be made within the 10 days of the giveaway to count for entries! Once it is verified you will receive TEN EXTRA ENTRIES!

This giveaway will end at 12pm EST on June 10th, 2011. At that time I will visit the Random Number Generator (RNG) and a winner will be chosen. The winner will have 3 days to respond. If I do not hear from said winner, I will visit the RNG again and choose a new winner.


So get off your...backside and go to it! Wooooot! Thanks to all who supported and cheered me on during the challenge. You all rock!

OH! And I hope you win. And by you I mean, you.

I will say the Brass Buck. I looked at the site and did see a lot of cute stuff, but I really love the Donkey S&P shakers the best! I have long ago given my boyfriend the nickname "Donkey", it would be so much fun to have such a cute collectible that is of his namesake!

Without a DOUBT the Sassy Lamb Planter. Added to favorites. Also, must convince hubs to let me buy it after our vacation, if we haven't spent all our money. It matches my Sassy Fawn Bookends and that Donkey would make a mighty addition!

Excellent giveaway! YAY, thanks for telling me about it!

That donkey is the cutest piece of kitch I have seen in a while. I really liked the handled set of cookie cutters at Vintage Umbrella. They remind me of the cookie cutters my grandmother had.
