Hanging Basket Winners

Jul
14


My current hanging baskets. (Speaking of hanging baskets!)


Mark Slattery, of Hanging Baskets/Garden Squirrel, as a gesture of goodwill and apology in response to the discovery of my content (text and photos) on his website (for a year! more details here), offered me six of these 14-inch cone hanging planters. He also assured me that he was working to remove every instance of my unauthorized content on his site.

I would not have discovered this incident without you. And no one would pay any attention to me without you.

I thanked him for his offer and asked him if I could give them away instead–to six of you. He agreed. And so! Six of you will each win one of the cone hanging baskets. They will be shipped to you from Hanging Baskets (not me), and he has requested the giveaway be limited to U.S./Canada. (Of course, if you live outside U.S./Canada, you may still enter if you can provide a U.S. or Canada shipping address, i.e. a family member etc to receive the package for you.)

To enter to win, simply leave a comment to let me know you want to be in the draw! Six winners will be drawn using comments numbers and random.org. This giveaway closes for eligible comments at noon Eastern time on July 15 and this post will be updated with the winners. (I usually close giveaways at midnight, but because I’m posting this later in the morning, I want to be sure that those readers who came by earlier this morning will still have an opportunity to enter the giveaway tomorrow morning.)

THANK YOU ALL! I wish I could give one away to every single one of you!

UPDATE 07/15/11:Winners!

Several people brought up in the comments that Patricia (comment #55, patinusa), deserved one of the prize baskets, and I can’t agree more. Patricia is the one who emailed me when she stumbled across what looked just like my words and photos on the Hanging Baskets website. Without her, there would be no baskets to give away at all, so I hope that no one will mind if I assign her the first hanging basket!

For the other five, drawing by comment numbers on random.org:
#30, manlovea
#175, yysmom
#71, rustinsmommy
#46, ashmmorgan2
#112, Journey11

Winners, email me at [email protected] with your full name and address for shipping! Your prize will be shipped to you from the Hangings Baskets people. Please let us know when your baskets arrive! (Inquiring minds want to know.)

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED TO ENTRY.

    Hi Suzanne,
    I’m glad Mr Slattery is doing the right thing. He should probably give some customer service training to his webmaster, however. Thank you for letting me enter the contest!

    At least he’s trying. This internet thing is so much more than people realize, there’s a lot more involved than just starting a website, lots of legalities that people don’t even think of. Would love a hanging basket!

    He just emailed me back from his phone telling me all was resolved and about the giveaway… Talk about backpedaling.
    Another person has discovered that Suzanne is loved.. :heart:

    Thank you, JeannieL! I understand how you feel. I couldn’t resist the chance to give away the baskets as a thank-you to you all, though!

    At least he is making an effort. I just moved into an new apartment – have the whole floor of a house to myself and a small porch that needs a hanging basket! Please enter me in the drawing and thanks for the giveaway :sheepjump:

    I just found the site a few days ago and love it. The hanging baskets are lovely and would really brighten up a dreary Oregon summer (right now its 57 degrees and raining – again). :clover:

    11:48
    am

    JeannieL #15, for half a second I felt the same way, but then realized I don’t really know for sure, his story may be true, a reader may very well have submitted Suzanne’s work (I doubt it, but I wasn’t there). So in the spirit of spinning this back to the positive, I’ll play along and if I win, whenever I look at the basket, I’ll be reminded that forgiveness is a gift I can give others.

    and to never lift anything on Suzanne’s blog. You people are relentless I tell ya!! :lol:

  28. 7-14
    11:48
    am

    I flamed him but when he responded within 5 minutes I sent him this… And know that is it true..

    Yes, I saw that. If you have never seen her site, you should…Start with ‘ The Slanted House’. Suzanne is a very talented person that shares her life-good and rough- with her followers. Her way with words and pictures will draw you in. You will soon discover why she has so many defenders. Just be prepared to laugh and cry and be amazed that one person can do what she does…
    I too am an artist after a fashion and it hurts when this happens.

    I hope Mr. Slattery will go the “extra mile” and make sure that this doesn’t happen again. After his painful verbal lashing, I’m pretty sure he won’t be “borrowing” any of CITR content in the future. Please put me in the draw for the basket. :happyflower:

    I also received an email from Mark stating the same flimsy excuse he gave you. I don’t buy his explanation, but as long as you have accepted his apology that is all that matters. I “binged” his e-mail address that someone posted on FB and got an unexpected eyeful when I opened the webpage. Wish I hadn’t done that!

    I’d be happy to receive a hanging basket.

    Congrats Suzanne!!!!! It was so worth sending a few emails. I so hate to see people using other peoples work and art and claim them as their own. And that is what Mark did. It was very good of him to do this to make up for the use of your work on his site. I hope that in the future he will check to see what is being sent to him and contact the orginial owner of the photos or at least give them credit with a link back to their site.

    Please enter me into this contest.!!! I would love to have something like this. :)

    Have a good day. Glad things worked out for you.

  74. 7-14
    1:25

    Please enter me. It is a nice gesture. Since Mark was so quick to apologize and remove the stolen content, perhaps we can give him the benefit of the doubt.

    :sheepjump: If it’s still open please pick me..what a nice gesture on his part and hopefully this won’t happen to someone else. Glad you persued it and we get to be a winner too!

    That is what I call good customer service. Everyone makes mistakes (don’t tell my husband that I said that!), but the hallmark of good business and a person with integrity is to acknowledge the error and make amends. Well done!

    I would love to get a hanging basket, as my petunias have pooped out on me and are getting leggy!

    I agree that the lady who notified you of this issue should get the first one. I am happy that he has offered this show of good will, however I do not want to be entered. I don’t trust this man. But I do understand and don’t judge others who do….it’s just my own dis-trusting, cynical nature coming out. :wave:

    Glad he is doing something. I clicked on his link early am today and saw the roo in the basket…the pic you said he didn’t even post! Because it was a grandbaby day (he is 2.5 and she is 17 months)I had no time to say anything to him.

    I was coerced to show your videos (yet again :moo: ) to our Mr. 2.5!

    I don’t need a hanging basket, but if you happen to draw my name, maybe you would send it along to Patricia for her diligence. Thanks Patricia and to all that stand behind Suzannes (and OUR) wonderful site.

    ps…I think you should have invoiced him.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either.
