This Giveaway Is For the Birds

We have a winner! Congrats Jennifer57!
(Choosen randomly using

It's Bloggy Giveaway Carnival time again...where hundreds of bloggers give stuff away on their blogs, and much fun ensues.

This time I'm giving away something fun I stumbled on a while ago at CafePress. The shopkeeper who made these only offered them in sets of ten (as noted in the picture below--you can click on the picture to visit her site)...but I wanted one so bad I bought a set figuring I could always sell or give the rest away). If you've ever visited a Texas Mall during grackle season, where these little birds flock in hugh swarms, you'll see the humor in this:

For a chance to win ONE of these buttons, just leave a comment (and make sure to leave your e-mail address--if I can't reach you I can't get the button to you). US entries only please (for shipping reasons).

You can also get extra entries for each of the following. Leave a separate comment for each please or your extra entries won't count.

1. Link to on your webpage or blog, blogroll or lensroll then come back here and share the URL where you did this in a comment.. If you like to link with buttons you can find some here

2. Link to or blog about any of my other sites listed here.

3. I've been working on set of Squidoo Local CA and TX CafePress t-shrit lenses to benefit charity. These would be a lot like my general Texas T-shirt Lens and California T-shirt Lens. Since, of course, I'm not familiar with every place in Texas and California I could use your help. For an extra entry first go to CafePress and search their marketplace for your favorite CA or TX city or town. Then pick your favorite design or designs that come up, and share the link to them in a comment here. You can do this for several cities if you want and leave a separate link for each one for more entries. No more than 5 though please, thanks. (WARNING: CafePress is a marketplace with user generated content and there are quite a few items that are not kid friendly there. While I don't feature any of those on my sites, doing a search like I just mentioned could bring up a few, so be forewarned.)

You can enter through Jan 31. If you know of any other bloggy giveaways going on with a California or Texas appeal, please let me know and I will put a link to them on this blog (family friendly only). Thanks!


  1. I have never heard of a Grackle, but from reading your blog and looking up Grackle on Google and now I if I were to win and anyone was to ask what the button meant I can tell them.

  2. I'm having so much fun making friends and blog-hopping again this year.

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway! I hope I'm chosen as the lucky winner!!!

  4. Oh my that is super funny! I live north of San Antonio, and when I first moved here, I went to the mall and wondered why the primo parking was empty under the trees...yupe. Now I know why! :) haha I love seeing them though, my daughter thinks it is cool when she sees a tree alive with them!
