24 hours Give Away!

You girls!
You all are too funny!
Setting expectations about the gift so high, well,
I hope you will like what I have to give away!
* Because blogging with you guys makes me happy, I want to give a present to all my readers! *
But I don’t think that Sweetheart would like that very much {oh,… eh, honey, we are broke because I wanted to give each and every reader a gift…}. Not a good idea, so only one can win.
I know by looking at my statistics that you are around the world, so this give away is open worldwide, for everyone who is reading my blog. I will open the Anonymous box specially for 24 hours, so the people who have no blog or email can comment too.
And this give away is only open 24 hours (Thursday 27, G.M.T.+2) because I want real readers to win,
people who are actually enjoying my blog, not someone who is looking for a free gift….
Since Valentines Day is coming soon,
I want to give a feel good present.
Something for your home, {the Love sign} and
something for yourself {eau de toilette Noa} 
in my favourite color White.

To enter this 24 hours give away
(ends Thursday midnight my time),
 you must tell me something:
* What is my favourite saying?
I talked about it in my early days of blogging…
* Tell me what your favourite quote is.
I will not use the random computer tingy, I find that it (most of the times) picks numbers in the middle, so the firsts and lasts numbers are a bit left out. I will make old fashion paper tags and ask my oldest daughter to pick one name.
Friday the 28th, I will let you know who the winner is!
Good luck!
Maureen

* This give away is now closed. Thank you so much for entering! *

    Ah, Maureen! You’re such a darling. What generous gifts.

    Hmm, your favourite saying is ‘Very little is needed to make a happy life’.

    As for mine, hmm, that’s tricky. At the moment it’s ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’.

    Hi Maureen,
    I’m quite a recent follower and love reading about your adventures and life in Switzerland. In order not to ‘cheat’ at your giveaway I have gone back and read your early posts and got to the ‘important’ one from Aug 7th…!
    So your favourite saying is “Very little is needed to make a happy life” and if I have to choose just one, (phew that’s tricky) then mine will be “be the change you wish to see in the world” Mahatma Gandi.

    Hi there Maureen. Your favourite saying is “very little is needed to make a happy life” – and how true that is. This is a lovely give-a-way. It’s funny because when I saw the first photo, I was going to say, not to bother about the perfume for me, I just wanted that lovely LOVE sign! Then I see that the sign is included too. You are too generous. (I’d still be more than happy with the LOVE sign. Then you could have two giveaways!!). My favourite quote is by Oscar Wilde – “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” I shall keep everything crossed until tomorrow!!

    Dear Maureen, what a great give-away, with a wonderful price!!!!!!!
    I love quotes, so here is mine:
    “When real people fall down in life, they get right back up and keep walking!”
    Big Hugs,
    Yvonne

    I would be cheating if I told you I knew your saying without looking at the comments above :) It is a good one:)

    My favorite quote today would be ‘I have a piece of cake for you today. With lots of icing’. Tomorrow it would be ‘You passed your UK driving test!’ Sending you the love, XOL

    My favorite quote has always been this: The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep. Love Robert Frost!

    Ik heb je pas net gevonden (en ga je uiteraard volgen), maar hoop dat ik desalniettemin mag meedoen!
    Jouw motto had ik snel gevonden: Very little is needed to make a happy life. En zo is het maar net.
    Dat van mij is: Keep calm and carry on. Maar ook: Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy (Anne Frank).

    Hi Maureen, I am a new blogger and just found your blog, it is so beautiful. I think that is a great idea about your giveaway, for real readers.
    I am now a follower, not because of the giveaway either, because I like your blog. Good luck to everyone.

    Hai Maureen, ik zag je post stiekem gisteravond al en dacht: wauw! Maar was te moe om na te denken over m’n spreuk op dit moment. De jouwe is “very little is needed to make a happy life” en de mijne is nu “pluk de dag en neem het hoe het komt”. Ik wissel nog wel eens, vandaar, haha. Wel mooi hoe je dat doet: iets aanbieden voor je échte lezers. Nou ik ben benieuwd!

    Enne… ben je al een naaimachine tegengekomen?

    Liefs van Maaike

    Aww Maureen… I didn’t make it in time… digging out the car and crazy kids… got distracted… forgot that there’s an extra hour time difference from the UK… and got here at 11:30 (UK time)… Not to worry though… I was with you at the beginning… I’m happy to follow, just because I enjoy you and your blog and I feel as though I have made a friend! Next time I’ll have my act together! Anyhoo… did you make the Blue Peter Special? Lx
