happy giveaway day!

I hope you’re all enjoying the fun giveaways happening all over the blogosphere today! If you’ve not already done so, be sure to head over to Sew Mama Sew to check out all the fantastic crafting blogs and giveaways taking place. They’re wonderful!

And now, for my own giveaway… Living in Edinburgh has really renewed my love and passion for traveling to new places. As such, I thought I’d pass along that same spirit of adventure by giving away a travel clutch and luggage tag. I hope you enjoy it! To enter into the giveaway, simply post a comment sharing where you would like to travel to if you could go anywhere you liked and money was of no concern. Top spot on my current destination wish list? Morocco! Also, please be sure to leave some way for me to contact you so I can get ahold of you if you win! Then, on December 17th I’ll randomly select a winner and announce it here on the blog. Happy blog surfing everyone!

    Scotland! Such a beautiful country, would love to see more of it.

    so stylish and useful! humm, does ‘anywhere but here’ count? i’d leave soggy england for stunning India anytime!

  • Deanna

    No way! Morocco is definitely in my top 3 (which oscillate in position almost daily.) The other two would be Vienna and Greece. Followed closely by Isreal and Central America.

  • Barbara

    Love to travel! Dreamed of visiting Santorino, Greece, the British Isles, and the Grand Canyon. Who knows? Maybe one day.

  • http://gemmajoy.blogspot.com gem

    Just what I need for when I travel (very disorganised)
    I’m having a giveaway if you want to pop over to my blog.

  • Becky Schnee

    I have many choices that I would love to travel to, but my top of my list is the Amazon, mainly Peru– walk the Inca trail and see Machu Picchu. I just love ancient culture…. Greece and Scotland are tied for 2nd :-)

    incase I win :) my email is ekswhyzed_@hotmail.com

  • Karen Bradley

    I’d love to go to Italy — Rome, Venice, Milan!

  • http://theblondstyleblog.blogspot.com Camille

    Hmmmmm…..where would I go? I think if I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go to Africa and adopt 1000 children who are dying and hungry {exageration….but seriously, I would do that….might not adopt 1000 kids}. :)

  • Lindsey Kaspar

    I would love to get back to Lebanon. I had to leave suddenly during the war in 2007 and I did not get a chance to say good-bye to so many dear friends. It would mean the world to be able to be connected again with some of those friends who are still there.

  • http://www.deseraequilts.blogspot.com Deserae Fiedler

    Great giveaway! I would love to travel to Egypt and see the pyramids. I have always wanted to go!

  • http://Www.beingthebrowns.com Katie Brown

    Oooo fun!! I’m honored that I have had the chance to travel to several places in my life and even live in 2 countries outside of the US. With that said, I would love to travel around visiting all the many, amazing friends that I have met along the way and family that live elsewhere: Kansas, Idaho, DC, Wisconsin, Missouri, Vancouver, Saskatchewan, Edinburgh, Oxford and more! And maybe a little trip to Hawaii or Spain to soak up the sun and introduce E to the sandy beaches!

    • http://Www.beingthebrowns.com Katie Brown

      Also. one of my lifelong dreams is to travel to Africa on a volunteer basis. Even for a couple years.

  • Marcia

    I would LOVE to go to Edinburgh to see two of my very favorite people. :) I also love your give away – I’ve already told you how great your passport holder is…. but the idea of the luggage tag is brilliant! What a great way to identify your luggage!!!

  • http://mamasoozinnerpieces.wordpress.com/ Mamasoo

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    If I could go anywhere, money no object, I would go to Italy. It kills me that my husband has been all over the world, and I’ve only been to most of the 50 United States!

    If I could travel anywhere, I’d probably pick Ireland or Scotland or New Zealand… so many choices! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • http://kerrykatiecakes2.blogspot.com/ Kerry Leslie

    I want to go everywhere but if I had to pick just one place I think I would go to Brazil and take my daughter with me.

  • http://quiltyhabit.blogspot.com Jessica H

    If money was not an option, I would go everywhere!! Well, my number one destination is Berlin, Germany, and I might be there in May, so my dreams are already coming true =P :) I would really be able to use the luggage tag and passport holder!

  • Trinity

    If money were of no concern, I’d go to Crete! I was sooo close when we lived in Germany, but we were merely poor college students. Maybe someday…

    Thanks for the generous giveaway, happy holidays!

  • Heather

    I’ve always wanted to go to Morocco too :) But I think, now that I have too adorable little kids, that Disneyland (or that new Harry Potter theme park) would be the very best place!

  • Heather

    Whoops! Forgot my email:

    My husband says that if we were ever to win the lottery he’d take me to Spain to see their cowboy culture and Italy for the wine. :)
    Great giveaway!

  • http://laurablogsagain.blogspot.com Laura

    I would go to Louisiana. Doesn’t seem real exciting but I have a great friend who I have known online for over five years now that lives there and I was hoping to visit this winter… but my sister decided to get married in March so I will be going to Florida instead. :)

  • TZel

    I would travel everywhere!!! But if I had to choose one place, Italy. Thank you!

  • Brenda

    anywhere at all? I think Ireland, or Norway. Wow, interesting that it is hard for me to have a dream of travel :)

  • kathy h

    I would love to go to Hawaii. Thanks for the chance to win in your giveaway.

  • Tabitha

    I really want to go to Iceland. I hear the drinking water is the best in the world (and it look beautiful)!

  • http://withoutamapdotcom.wordpress.com aprilinautumn

    Morrocco is #1 on my list, too! I’m also super interested in Ecuador, Belize, Turkey and Vietnam. Yeah, I want to go everywhere.

    I just made one of these organizers for my friend (who just left for Mexico on Sunday). It would be nice to have one for me, because I’ll never make one for myself.

  • Amy

    I really, really want to visit the Galapagos to go snorkeling, but instead I’m headed to China in February for work… not quite the same! But I’d still put your gorgeous travel accessories to good use. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Emily


  • Heidi

    There are so many places that I would love to visit.
    In Europe, Scotland, Romania and Spain top the list. I would also love to see India, Zanzibar, Bali, and Japan.
    Of course one of my top plans would be to score fabulous fabrics (I want some Harris tweed and authentic Bali batiks!)

    hugs from snowy Ontario, Canada

  • Tara

    I would go to Greece!

  • Maggie

    If I could travel anywhere I’d like to go to Greece.

  • Theresa

    New York!

    I LOOOOOOVE these! And I need a clutch badly and I love damask- this one would match my new damask tote! :)

    Where would I travel?? ANYWHERE!!! I want to experience food in SO many countries/cultures!!

  • http://happycottagequilter.blogspot.com Jocelyn

    My pick would be New Zealand. Although my hubby may be traveling to Morocco next year 😉 Very cute! Thanks for entering me :-)

  • Lynda

    This is so great, thanks!

  • Susan

    I want to visit New Zealand!

  • http://www.sewmanyquilts.blogspot.com Dionne

    Wow! I just got back from Scotland. My husband is Scottish and we go back to visit the grandparents, and the aunties and cousins. He grew up near Falkirk, but his sister lives in Edinburgh and that’s where we stayed. I looked and looked and looked for fabric stores, but found none. Ok, well I looked a little….

    So we go back periodically, but I’d really love to take the entire family to Australia, which seems SO FAR AWAY to me.

  • Anne

    Ooh… Budapest! Then Morocco! Then Turkey! Then Cusco!

  • http://www.searchingforthegood.blogspot.com Kiza M

    Well, all things considered it might sound like sucking up, but I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland. My sister had the chance to visit a number of years ago and it just sounded fabulous. Spain would probably be a close second.

    Thank you for the giveaway and for sharing with us. :)

  • http://muffinsnmore.blogspot.com Ms Muffin

    Oh, this is a hard question! There are so many places …
    I have always wanted to go to Iceland since I was a kid. Also Australia, the Grand Canyon, New Zealand, Sweden are high on my list. But I guess if I could go right now with the whole of the family I would probably choose Scotland. Well, not RIGHT now. Bit too cold at the moment. But maybe spring … or autumn. I have only been there in autumn (twice). Loved it every time!

    Thanks for this great giveaway!
    Come by my blog and enter mine if you want to!

    Wowsies Katy! I wasn’t expecting to click on your post and see 175 comments!!! I’ll have to look through everyone’s replies and dream of all the wonderful destinations!

    My present travel wish: Venice. I’ve been to Italy several times but never Venice, and I’m just dying to get there before we move away from Europe.

    Miss you!!!

  • Emily

    With toes still cold from an outing hours ago, I’d say any place warm… maybe a trip to the Caribbean to enjoy the white sands and blue waters. I’m not picky – any island will do!

    Your giveaways are just lovely. One of my sisters is our true world traveler and this set reminds me so much of her – I love it.

    Hmm.. I would probably go to the Philippines. I took Tagalog in college and can still understand quite a bit of it! But, I travel every year to Mexico so a travel set would get some serious use!!
    thanks for the giveaway!

  • Shirley

    Home to Canada. I haven’t been there for 7 years. Scotland or France would be a nice second place.

Hopefully someday they can accompany me on our “when we can afford to travel for a few months” journey some day :) We want to head to Europe first, do Scotland, Ireland & England (my heritage), Holland (hubby’s heritage), Austria, Spain, France, Italy & Greece, then off to Australia and NZ, then back to some tropical island somewhere for some sun and relaxing. :) (a girl can dream, right?) Thanks so much for this opporunity to day dream and enter your giveaway 😉

    Right now I would love to go back home to Estonia. Alas, I am half a world away and since we already went once this year, it is impossible. Otherwise I would love to go to France. While I have trolled most of Europe this way and that, I have not managed to go there.

    Ireland! It looks like it would be gorgeous there :)

  • scrapperdeb

    My most wanted to go to place used to be Prince Edward Island…and we went in August for our anniversary! So now, maybe 5 years down the road for another anniversary, maybe Ireland/Scotland would be nice.
