Starbucks and Betty Crocker Give-Away!

Pin It



Hello friends!  As some of you who are part of my facebook page know, I have recently reached 500+ friends for my Old Fashioned Housewife page and I am so excited to be back to blogging and to have made so many great bloggy friends.  I am celebrating with a give-away, and hope you’ll take advantage and sign up!

Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee or tea and a good read? This month’s giveaway gives you both- the complete package!  Searching for Betty Crocker is a fantastic read about the history of how marketers created Betty and how they have sustained the brand over the years. But it is by no means a dry read- it is filled with great stories and wonderful vintage photos from magazines and cook books (and of course- recipes!). It’s a great read and Im sure you’ll enjoy it.

For full disclosure the book IS second hand… but as you can see from the profile photo I read it very gently- no marks in it or bent pages, etc. Smile


And per many of your requests- I am adding a 20 dollar starbucks card to the give-away. Almost everyone can find something they enjoy at Starbucks, so consider this giveaway a “reading date” for one on me!



As per usual, my give-aways are no strings attached.  ALL you have to do is leave a comment on this thread (NOT on my facebook page, friends, because I believe Facebook has strict rules about give-aways and Im not sure how that works) letting me know that you would like to enter the give-away, AND what country you reside in.  The give-away is open to all of my readers, but the Starbucks component is only open to Canada or US readers, and ladies I need to know which country you reside in so I can make sure to get the right Starbucks card for you.  It just so happens that we are traveling down to the New York mid-July and if I have an American winner I will buy an American Starbucks gift card.  So be sure to include that info in your comment!

I will draw and announce the winner on July 12th. 

Hope you’ll take a minute to enter, and I am looking forward to blessing one of you ladies with this give-away!  Have a great week!
