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!
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:
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.)
