Giveaway Time



















I thought it was about time as it's been AGES since I've had any sort of giveaway. So raise your hand if you're excited!

It's the start of the busy seasons for me and I can feel the change in orders already. Lately it seems like a lot of baubles are going out in the post so I thought what better than to give away a personalised bauble to the winner. You can choose any bauble you want from the selection in my shop, or maybe we can even come up with a new one just for you!

Have you picked out your favourite yet?

Not so fast! You do have to do something in order to win this bauble so I thought I would make it a bit of fun if not slightly challenging. Of course, this may be a piece of cake and I'll get millions of correct answers. Or... It may be slightly more difficult (in which case I'll give you loads of hints because I do want right answers after all!). All correct answers will be put into a hat for a drawing, most likely by one of my children, but I'll keep you posted on that.

What lovely town is pictured in this post? First hint: It's in Europe (and one of its major landmarks is shown in the photo)

Put on your thinking caps and let me know your answers in a comment to this post. Enter as many times as you like (well, within reason, no listing ALL the cities and towns in Europe!). All correct answers will be entered into the draw. And if you want a second chance to win, just spread the word about the giveaway and you'll automatically get a second entry. Tweet about it or blog about it or post it on Facebook or take out a full-page ad in the New York Times. Your choice! But do let me know about it in a comment here so I can be sure to give you another entry.

Have fun! (I'll choose a winner next Monday, so until then, happy guessing and keep coming back for clues.)

Oh, and I wanted to mention that that blue sky in the photo is untouched. Not filter necessary!

I'm excited!!!

I had to enlarge the photo to be able to read the sign clearly...
I'm guessing this is Leuven/Belgium :)

I love all your baubles, but the 'Swedish Lucy' is my favourite!

I think it's Bruges in Belgium! Sorry I couldn't find your Baubles!

Janet said...

My first guess is Lille, France.

Janet said...

I'm going to try again. I think it's in Belgium as my image search shows pics of architecture just like this but I'm not so certain of the exact place. I'll guess Bruge this time.

I've also facebooked some friends about this.

Janet said...

Another guess would be Ghent Belgium, but I can't find the exact place. This sure is a tough contest.

Janet said...

Brussels, Belgium

Janet said...

Antwerp, Belgium

Dina Fragola said...

OK I am not entering because I go there too often and it'd feel like cheating ;)
I like all your baubles but the London bus one is very fun!

Stephan said...

Gretchen,

My guess here would be Leuven, Belgium. The home of Stella Artois.

Well my first guess was Salzburg, but I am guessing I am wrong. :) Of the ones posted I like Barnaby, but wouldn't mind something with a little monkey.. :)

I'm going with Tournai, Belgium! :)
