Red Olympic Mitten Giveaway....yep the real ones.....no knock offs here

 This contest is now closed and the winning entry will be listed Saturday morning.  Thanks to all who participated:)
It has been quite a while since Bloggy Giveaways stopped their quarterly Bloggy Giveaway Carnival......and I sure have missed it.  I've been mulling this one over for some time now, and decided why not now!  We are in the midst of Olympic excitement here in Canada.....it's the one time every two years that I really WANT to watch sporting events on TV.  We have been so pleased here with the performance of our athletes.  It must be an experience of a lifetime to stand on an Olympic podium, see your flag raised and to hear your national anthem play. It chokes me up to watch it at home, so I don't know how they keep it together on the podium.  I'd cry.....like a baby.....but that's just me.  Would you??

So in support of these Olympic Games I am offering a giveaway of a pair of those cute as a button red Olympic Souvenir Mittens. (Brand New with Tags) They have become the most popular souvenir of these Olympic Games and it isn't hard to see why.  They are sized adult L-XL and will fit most adult sized hands.  This giveaway will be open for the coming week ending on midnight Friday February 26th.  I will randomly select 1 winner from the comments on this post using random.org, and that winner will receive one pair of mittens.  Should the number of comments exceed 100, I will draw a second winner as well.  Winners will be contacted to acknowledge their prize.  If I do not hear back from them within 5 days time giving me their mailing address, a new winner will be selected.  Good luck and enjoy your Olympic Games!

The Rules
  • This giveaway is open to everyone, so it is international
  • You can enter once by leaving a comment on this post saying what is your favourite Winter Olympic event along with a contact email or blog address so you can be contacted if you win
  • If you are following this blog please leave a second comment letting me know for a second entry
  • Comments may be left until Friday night February 26th at midnight
  • Winners will be posted the morning of Feb 27th on this blog
Thanks for playing!

    Oh I love this giveaway- there's nothing better than a great pair of mitties!

    I love speedskating! When I was a little girl I remember watching Dan Jansen and just being so captivated by how fast he could move and how I knew that I could never ever do something as graceful as that.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I'd have to say that my favorite event is figure skating. I won't lie, I watch to see if they will fall during those high jumps. lol

    I'm not sure how to follow so I guess I'm not. :/

    Hi : ) we've been certainly following Olympics from waaay over here (& even signed up for extra channels temporarily to do so). I have a few favourite sports to watch, but I really like short track speedskating, snowboarding & the downhill skiiing events & various figure skating events. Would love some glorious red mittens & would proudly wear them on our chilly winter mornings.

    ps Of course I am following your blog!

    Hiya! Thought I would enter your giveaway and stop being your crazy friend lurker. :)

    My favorite winter Olympics event is figure skating. Though, I must say that fighting with Dewey over whether or not it is a sport every single time it is on gets old. :)
