I notice that lots of the blogs that have giveaways have fancy or silly names for their giveaway posts so this is mine. I don't know yet if I will be giving away something every week that will sort of depend on my supply of items to give away but more on that later. For now lets talk about the giveaway.
What am I giving away you ask? Well, now that the Mardi Gras season is over and all of the parades have rolled on down the road I have a lot of throws (that's what we call the items people throw to the crowd from the floats) that desperately need a home. Some are collectible and some are just for fun but if you have ever wanted to have your very own authentic Mardi Gras throws and just haven't made it down to the Big Easy to catch some for yourself, then this is the giveaway for you.
Specifically this giveaway includes a cup from the Krewe of Iris, a string of beads with medallion from the Krewe of Carrollton(still in the packaging), a cute stuffed caterpillar, a bumper sticker from the Krewe du Vieux and lots of beads, more than are seen in this horrible (sorry it's so bad) picture.
Some of you may be wondering what you will do with these things if you were lucky enough to be chosen the winner. Your imagination is the only limit, you could collect them, wear them, decorate with them, kids LOVE them and I have even heard of people turning the beads into craft projects with their kids.
