Pottery Giveaway from LennyMud

**Our Lucky Winners are #15 Anna See, #32 Cindy, #46 Gay Vaughn, #17 Secret Mom Thought, and #38 Joanna Jenkins. Congratulations to them all. I will contact them by email for their information and forward it to Lorrie.

What isn't better with chocolate?

That's right - absolutely nothing. If all life was chocolate coated, there would be no need for thankful posts because everyone would be frolicking and smiling, birds would be singing, and flowers would forever be in bloom. Or at least that is what it looks like in my mind.

I have a wonderful giveaway for you today. It combines so many of my favorite things in one. Bloggers, pottery, chocolate (or at least the mention of it), and free.

First, I am proud to say that this giveaway is by none other that Lorrie Veasey, a fellow blogger as well as designer for Our Name is Mud - a National Pottery Company. Lorrie has been my online buddy since shortly after I started blogging and they don't make online friends any better. Or potters.

I am happy to say I am the proud owner of several of Lorrie's beautiful works including mugs, bowls, and platters. They are gorgeous, eye-catching, unique, and sturdy. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not big on items that I have to set up on a pedestal and never touch for fear of breaking. Lorrie's items are not like that. I use her pottery daily and even sent one mug to college with my daughter.

What do I have for you today, you are asking. Lorrie has very generously offered to give five (yes, 5!) of my readers the cutest plaque you have ever seen. Yes, it is perfect for Valentine's Day but I would enjoy this cutie year round. It is featured in her Etsy shop which showcases beautiful pottery - all made by Lorrie herself.

Now, for this giveaway and since Lorrie is a buddy of mine, I'm going to ask you to do a little more to qualify.

First, go over to Lorrie's Etsy shop, LennyMud, come back and tell me something you saw that you loved. I need you to do this to qualify for the giveaway.

But wait, you can get extra entries as well! (Please leave me a separate comment for each.)
* Visit Lorrie's new blog, Trail of Hearts, where she selflessly promotes her favorite items she has found throughout Etsy. Leave Lorrie a comment on that blog then come back and tell me you visited her.
*Follow this blog. Just leave me a comment if you are follower.
*Tweet about this giveaway.
*Blog about this giveaway.

I will close this giveaway Friday, January 29 at midnight. I will use random.org to draw our lucky winners and then contact them by email. Which reminds me, please leave me a way to contact you if your blogger account doesn't link to your email or blog.

While I am already the happy owner of pieces of pottery by Lorrie, I am receiving no compensation for this giveaway. Except the satisfaction of hooking up some lucky readers with some great pottery.

Great sites! Love her tiles, especially the snarky messages-- she's my kind of artist.
