TO MARKET, TO MARKET, TO BUY A FAT PIG...


GIVE-AWAY, GIVE-AWAY, JIGGETY JIGG!  Yes indeed my friends, it's time for you to toss your name into the hat for Seasonality's Fourth Anniversary Market Basket Give Away!  Our winner will receive the following:
1) This beautiful market basket which, though not made locally, was purchased from a great little fair trade craft gallery here in Wimberley, called Imagine.  It was handmade in Ghana by Rural Women Co-operatives, which are guided by fair trade practices in support of rural poverty alleviation.  Shaped much like the famous French market baskets, it is just right for carrying to a farmers' market or the grocery store, to get just what you need for the next day or two.
2) A Hippie-Cowgirl zipper pouch to hold your stash of small bills, because everyone knows you gotta have a bunch of those when you go to the farmers' market!
3) An autographed (albeit slightly worn) copy of Eating in Season: Recipes from Boggy Creek Farm, by Carol Ann Sayle.  Carol Ann and her husband Larry were pioneers in the field of urban farming, and Boggy Creek Farm lies right in the heart of Austin, Texas.
4) Last, but not least, he or she will receive that cute little refrigerator magnet pictured above, and I hope it will be a constant reminder of one of the most important steps towards living the good life -- eating well, and with Seasonality!
So what must you do for a chance at winning this delightful prize package?  Simply leave a comment, any time between now and midnight on Sunday, 8/11/11, telling us one thing you have learned, enjoyed, or been inspired to do, by/from this blog.  If you are a new reader, just tell me what or who led you to Seasonality.  And, if you will post a link to this "give-away page" on your  own blog or website, and leave a comment here linking to that, your name will get thrown into the hat a second time (and we will all get the chance to visit some wonderful new blogs).  The winner will be announced Monday morning, 9/ 12.  Good luck!

Update!
If you don't have a website, you can still garner an extra chance by linking to this page on facebook.  Just be sure to come back and leave a comment, showing that you did so.

P.S.  If you are one of those who has trouble leaving comments, you can always email your entry to me at becky.lane(at)vownet(dot)net, or send it to me via facebook.

I don't remember how I found your blog...been reading it off and on for awhile, probably through another blog or by searching for other bloggers in my area?

We like to do day trips so I follow your hill country adventures to get ideas for stuff we can do on the weekends since we have similar taste in locally owned restaurants and the like!

I totally want to be included in this drawing! You know me! And tomorrow's my 50th birthday so it would be a great 50th birthday present! =)

I'm inspired to plan meals the way you do it... I'd love to have a Bountiful Sprout to purchase from, but we don't out here at this time... CP Farmer's Market is my go-to for local, fresh...

Does sharing the giveaway on FB count?

Posted about the giveaway on FB!

You remind me of what awesome TX hill country living is.....plus, my wife doesn't have any birthday gifts...

You bet Teri - and Happy Birthday! (you're still a young whipper-snapper compared to me) Has your FM had much in the way of fresh veggies lately? We're just about down to eggplant or garlic and shallots around here, and my hubby won't eat eggplant! Thank goodness we can still get the grass fed meats, eggs, etc. However, if the drought goes on much longer, we may lose those too!

David - Well, between the two of you, your name is in the hat 3 times now, so the odds are good. However, I'd go shopping today if I was you, just to be safe.

Teri H said...

It has actually been a few weeks since I've been to FM... Saturday mornings are difficult as it is 30 minutes away... then back home and turn around a drive D to the airport later that day... I don't like driving. But I'm thinking we may go tomorrow.

Have you ever been to Wheatsville Co-op in Austin? That is my favorite store! I try to go either on my way to or from the airport at least once a month... if even just to browse!

Laura said...

I am Teri's cousin and would love for her to win this gift! It sounds just like her! Very cool! I can't wait to read more of your blogs! Thanks!

Marguerite said...

I am so happy to have found your blog Miss Becky. Since I am moving to Austin next month, I have learned a lot more about the areas near Austin that sound fun and interesting. Bountiful Sprout market and the creative souls in the Wimberley area for sure. Thanks for the give away opportunity!

Hill Country Hippie (aka Miss Becky) said...

Marguerite and Laura, so glad you both found your way to Seasonality. Your names are both in the hat (and Laura, you are more than welcome to donate your prize to Cousin Teri if your name gets picked!).

I particularly enjoy your artsy to-do lists, as in today's post (yes, I'm commenting on Friday). Love--P
