**Really, Mom? Even her underwear? 'Cause I think having underwear made out of corn husks would be pretty uncomfortable.**
*I agree, honey, and I'll never make you wear corn husk underwear. I promise.*
Anyway, this woman used to scare my kids. Every year when ecology day came around and Green Lady came to the classroom, I knew we'd have a lot to talk about after school.
Sorry, but she made being green seem kind of weird. Like something only hippies do.
Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm no Hippie, and I wouldn't call myself "green" by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe in taking care of my little corner of the earth. I'm also no extremist, nor am I an evangelist when it comes to things of the earth, so you'll never hear me commanding you to recycle (or wear corn husk underwear), even though we do it here (the recycle part, not the corn husk part). I'm just not into scaring people about stuff like that.
But when a green product comes around that excites me, I mean one that is really practical and cute and stylish even, I want to shout it from the rooftops. Which is why I'm so thrilled about today's giveaway.
But first, a little background.
Remember a while back when I told you about our French Market? Well, a couple of Saturdays ago I was there with one of the girls, and we saw a display of bags that were . . . to put it bluntly . . . cute! I mean, really cute. Not just your run-of-the-mill homemade tote bag that even I, who does not have the crafty gene, could make. No, these were special.
Because the handles are made of rubber. LIke tires. In fact, they ARE tires. Inner tubes that have been recycled from old bicycle tires.
And the fabrics. Oh, the fabrics. Insanely adorable.
And I immediately recognized the name of the company because one of my blogging friends, Sandy, had told me about her sister-in-law, Deanna, who lives right here in my town who had this really cool company.
I think so.
So I introduced myself to Deanna and told her that her sister-in-law was one of my bloggy friends and she looked at me like I was completely insane. Which I was. Over her bags.
Unfortunately our family needed to eat actual fruits and vegetables and bread that week, so I didn't have enough money to buy one of her to-die-for purses. Strike me down now, I was coveting.
The next week at the French Market, there was Deanna, with even more cute bags, and this time I was ready. I brought some money with me to purchase a tote bag which, unfortunately, was not for me. It was a gift.
We got to chatting again, and Deanna graciously told me that I could do a giveaway on my blog. Excited?! You bet I was!
So here's the deal. I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to anything on the Coopersong website. Anything your little heart desires.
Like this tote bag.
Or this lunch sack (the one Maggie wants because all the middle school girls have them).
Or this purse (the one I was drooling over).
Here's what you do if you want to be entered in the giveaway. Head on over to the Coopersong website, take a look around, drool a little, then come back here and tell me what you'd get with your $25 gift certificate.
And even better, if you tell a friend about me, I'll enter you again.
And if you "Follow" me, I'll enter you AGAIN!
So there. Three chances to win a Coopersong bag. Get going!
I'll announce the winners on Monday, which is also Memorial Day. Have a great weekend!
P.S. If you were really paying attention to this post you would realize that I STILL don't have a Coopersong bag of my own. But one of these days I will. And I'll shout it from the rooftops.
