Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Welcome to my corner of the St. Patrick’s Day blog hop, hosted by Carrie Ann Ryan!  Not only am I talking with Elise Rome today–I’m hopping with Carrie! (Some gals have ALL the luck, don’t they?) Not sure where this celebration originated, but does it matter?  I love this day!

You get to drink green beer and eat cupcakes and no one gives you a second glance.  Nada.  Nothing.  You can wear green and pinch folks you suspect may have forgotten to wear theirs–without getting the hard glare in return. (Love that part.)  And need I remind you of the cornbeef and cabbage?  My garden is all in a tizzy over this holiday because after all, it celebrates one of their best colors AND paves the way for spring.

How about you?  Does St. Patrick’s Day mean anything special?  Perhaps you’re Irish?  Like the color?  Enjoy pinching fannies?  Eating cabbage? 

And did I mention?  This blog hop is full of chances to try YOUR luck and win prizes galore.  Like a “spring greenie basket” inspired by my love of gardening.  What is that? 

Glad you asked!  It includes a host of goodies like custom-made seed packet holder and seed saving packets, white nectarine & orange blossom silkening body lotion by Organic Indulgence (one of my new favorites and BloominThyme Prize Picks!), veggie-themed votive burner including scented votive from Swan Creek Candle (Cilantro Clementine…hmmm) PLUS a packet of delicious “peas and carrots” Jelly Belly beans. ($35 value)

How do you win?  Simply leave a comment revealing YOUR favorite color along with your email and you’ll be entered for a random drawing to be held at the end of this hop!  (Limited to US residents only–international entries will win free ebook of my novel, Jennifer’s Garden.)  Winners will be notified by Sunday. :)

Now be sure to visit The Jeep Diva—you’ll find her link at the bottom of this post (#119). Thanks and have a great rest of your day hopping (and *pinching*) along!!

    What a great package of prizes, love that you are adding something a little different ;) My favorite color is blue, pretty much any shade of blue, but I do prefer the darker blues. I’m not Irish at all, but I sure like to celebrate it, maybe I’ll have a margarita or two, they are green right? Thanks for participating in such a great Hop!

    My favorite color (and not just on St. Patrick’s Day…all year round, for years now): GREEN! Emerald Green, or a deep glass bottle green is my favorite…but really, any shade of green. And I think YOUR favorite color might be pink! :D Am I right? ;)

    Thank you for your generosity, and for this amazing giveaway! :D We need to talk about doing a giveaway of ur e-book on my blog, along with an author’s interview…SOON! :) *hugs*

  11. Pamela says:

    My favorite color is green but when I was younger it used to be purple. And now, although I still favor green, I’ve noticed that I’ve been drawn to purple more. LOL So maybe green and purple are both favorites. :)
    Thanks for the giveaway.
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day.


  12. Michelle Bledsoe says:

    My favorite color is burgandy. I love deep jewel tones. I also like emerald green.
    Happy St. Paddy’s Day to you.
    Thanks for the contest.

  13. Sign me up, Hira! And you guessed it — I LOVE pink! The hotter the better… Bright, sassy & fun, you can’t go wrong with pink in my book.

    And green? LOVE that color as I’m surrounded by it in my garden. Turquoise is my heroine’s favorite color in my current WIP (3rd in series after LUST ON THE ROCKS). Wait until you see what she has in this color! ;)

    Anything in jewel tones works well, too. I’m an Aries so diamond is my stone — colorless!

    Painted my daughter’s room a lovely shade of lavender (though she now prefers the bolder tints in the purple family) combined with aqua blue! The brighter the better. :)

    Thanks to all who have stopped by so far — you’re in it to win it!!

    My favorite color seems to change between red, blue, and rich brown depending on how I am feeling. Or maybe I am just afraid of commitment.
