Fab Freebie: Sherry’s Birthday Wish

***This giveaway has reached its cap and is now closed – see who won below!***

You guys shut this puppy down with 10,000 entries in less than a day. Wow! So we’ve already selected our random winner. She is… Rhonda (who thinks she’s gonna ask for a juicer – to go along with her Christmas blender). Congrats!

Tomorrow is Sherry’s 31st birthday. So a few weeks ago I asked her if she wanted to do anything special giveaway-wise to celebrate. She looked dreamily towards the sky, a smile spread across her face, and she said “I want to do a Jonathan Adler giveaway and I want a picture of him holding ceramic animals and grinning like a fool. Because we are kindred spirits. That would pretty much make my year.”

A week later this photo appeared in my inbox:

The girl wanted a Jonathan Adler giveaway (you can read more about her love of the guy here) and the girl got it. The wonderfully cheerful people of Jonathan Adler were completely down with the idea (and the ceramic-animal-centric photo, apparently) so they’ve offered up a whopping $500 for one lucky winner to spend on whatever they’d like – animal or otherwise. Beyond obsessing over his white ceramic creatures, Sherry shares his love of poppy patterns, colorful accents, and chic accessories that don’t take themselves too seriously. So, um, happy birthday to one of you!

    Birthday me! I think we are going to have an adult roller rink party this year. My birthday and my husband’s are consecutive. Double celebration, baby!

      LOL, It sounds good in theory, but trust me, in practice, not so much. A friend of mine thought that would be a good idea a few years ago for her 30th. Her husband did not make it one trip around the rink without falling and breaking his arm.

      Birthday me!

      I am a jewelry nut, so anything in that line goes. And money never hurts!

    BIrthday me! I always like to get the same thing for my birthday – a hydrangea to plant in our yard! Plus some spa time, and dinner out. No dishes nights are the best!

      Birthday Me

      My Birthday is in July and my wish this year is that we are at least moved into our first home by then. Myself and my boyfriend are getting the keys on Friday and we have never been so excited!

  3. Melanie says

    BIRTHDAY ME! I just celebrated my birthday and I just wanted money to redo our bedroom. I’m pretty easy going when it comes to birthdays!

    Not to be cheesy but my birthday is next week and the only thing I asked for is your book :)

  5. says

    Birthday Me!! With my Birthday in January, and usually during snow storm season, I’ll be hinting for a little, warm getaway:)

    Happy Birthday Eve, Sherry!!

    I just want cake… I’m sure I will come up with something else before then but it’s 10 months away so right now I just want cake.
