I LOVE MONOGRAMS!! (Read: Another Excellent Giveaway)

How beautiful is a good monogram?  I just LOVE their look. So classy and preppy and southern - all traits I aspire to attain myself one day. Seriously, if I could, I would monogram EVERYTHING I own.  No lie.

And then, I found...
Understanding my LOVE for three perfectly placed initials, you can imagine my excitement when The Letter Tree contacted me about hosting a giveaway on my blog.  This is an incredible shop where you can personalize ANYTHING.  Seriously, they've thought of EVERYTHING.  Ahhh... a dream!
What more could a girl want? 

Being a practical one, I chose this ADORABLE tote for me.  I've used the L.L. Bean version of a bag like this for the past three years as my "school bag."  I'll admit, it has been good to me, and it was going to be pretty tough to beat...  But, THIS little beauty exceeded ALL my expectations.

Not only is it SO cute, but it also is sturdy and big enough to fit ALL my books, binders, laptop, et al. The arm straps are padded and ultra comfy. AND, it has a nice zipper top that will keep its contents superfrom ending up all over my car every morning on the way to work. Plus, as if all that wasn't great enough, how cute are the colors and the font? I.absolutely.LOVE.it. You should see me proudly toting this thing around town. (Hopefully, I will resist the urge to carry it as my purse.)


ANYWAYS, even better news than my great bag:
The Letter Tree is giving away one of these amazing bags right here on my blog!  SCORE!  (Of course, you can pick the monogram, the font, and have your choice of several color options.)

Here's how it works:
For ONE entry: Visit http://www.thelettertree.com/ and leave a comment on this post telling me what your very favorite item is.  (This one is required to participate!)

For ANOTHER entry: Join their mailing list and tell me in your comment that you did this too! (You can do this on the bottom left of their home page.)

And, for a BONUS entry: Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me you are.  (This works for "old" followers too... Just remind me in your comment.)

The giveaway is open to all US residents and will be open until Wednesday night 3/24 at 11:59PM. I will announce the winner one week from TODAY!

Oh, you are just going to LOVE this place

  10. Muttie loves the bag but says it's not fair that all the competitions are just open to US residents. A scots lady would look good wearing one too she reckons. What about some international co-operation? :)

    Still loving the blog.

  14. My favorite item from TheLetterTree is definitely the monogrammed duffle bag. It's big enough to hold everything you need for a weekend trip but not so bulky you have to ask for help with it!

    I currently follow your blog too :)

  21. I love giveaways! I LOVE the monogrammed lunch boxes at the letter tree. EVERY teacher needs a stylish lunch box. I have been stalking your blog for quite awhile now, but I am officially a "follower" today. Finally, I signed up for the newsletter on the letter tree. And just in case it helps my chances, I have two GREAT reasons why I should win the bag:
    1. I am a teacher and need ONE bag to carry to school rather than two overflowing bags. I look ridiculous walking in to school every day.
    2. The day you are announcing the winner is my BIRTHDAY! That would be a fantastic way to celebrate!

  35. I am a new follower :) I got hooked reading Amanda's and was excited to read yours since I "know" you from her & my brother's wedding. I'm more of a 'stalker' because I don't comment until now... because I'm OBSESSED with monogramming. Especially since it took me a year to change my name (to my married name) because I was sad that I wouldn't be able to use my AWM things anymore. Thankfully-- Amanda got me my first AML item so I'm on my way again. :)

    (PS I LOVE the chocolate monogrammed cap. I mean, baseball caps come in handy so often and I don't always want to look completely 'sporty' but just covered up, while traveling, at the beach, running to the store on a Saturday morning, etc ) :)

    Good luck with your giveaway (and 'To Do' day list)!

  36. Elizabeth,
    I am loving the Monogrammed Jack & Jill Bucket. I think it would be great as an ice bucket for parties. I also love the cute tote bag. It would be great for lugging around all of my teaching materials as well. Thanks for letting me know about such a great find!
