Yes, one of the awesome people who read my little ol' blog can go to the Country Living Fair for FREE . . . GRATIS . . . ON THE HOUSE (of Hawthornes)!
Since it is a pair of passes, you can bring your bestie with you. Or your husband. Whichever. Oh, am I supposed to say your husband is your bestie?
The passes are for all three days (Fri, September 13th through Sunday, September 15th), so you can go one day, two days or three days. It's up to you!
Yep, you can fill your car up with goodies on Friday, then toss and turn all night envisioning those cool things that you saw, fell in love with, but thought you didn't have room enough in the car to buy.
And when you realize that you don't really need to have that spare tire in the car (it's just taking up space, you know), you will still be able to go back on Saturday and buy all that stuff you dreamt about, because you have the golden tickets to the fair and all!!!
Then on Sunday, you can just eat your way through the fair and find pint sized stuff that will easily fit in your glove compartment.
In order to enter, I am not requiring any head standing, but you do need to use the Rafflecopter* below. You sign in with either your email address or Facebook login and then just click the button and YOU ARE DONE!

*Rafflecopter is a simple and easy way for me to do a giveaway and at the same time make certain that the contest is totally fair, since their computer randomly picks the winner and all.
OK, I cannot end this post without saying that my sister, Ruth, is rolling over in her grave right now (in a good way), because she's so excited that I have this opportunity to work with THE Country Living Magazine. Her all time favorite magazine in the world.
She was the first person to read and comment on my very first blog post and is the reason I keep on chugging along here three years later.
