Hello dear readers!
First, I'd like to say that I really enjoyed hosting this giveaway.
I got so many nice comments, and some people even drew a picture for me, or wrote a poem! So cool!
I spent several hours last night reading your comments, I didn't miss even one of them!
However, I had to choose only 5 comments from 980 that would win.
I chose comments that warmed my heart, made me smile, or just comments that I was able to relate to.
Here are the five winner comments.
(not in specific order)
"You must have gloves, or I won't go," cried Meg decidedly. "Gloves are more important than anything else. You can't dance without them, and if you don't I should be so mortified."
("Little Woman" by Louisa May Alcott, Chapter Three)
I desperately need these gloves for my prom (05.01.2013) - it is the last element that I have to complete in order to feel like a princess that one and only time... It would be such a great relief for me to win them now! Additionally, this gift will gain a special, sentimental value for me if I obtain it from you :)
Please, help my dreams come true!
Imagine a little girl... sitting on the front steps of a rich house in a pretty village. The winter has finally come and Christmas is near. People are cruising around the town to buy Christmas presents for their children. The little girl in not as fortunate as the other kids. She isn't rich. She only wears a cheap dress and dirty shawl. She tries to sell people little dolls she is making when she finds some used cloth. But no one notices her. She is very cold and hungry. She falls asleep and dreams of a beautiful black coat that would keep her warm. She almost feels the rich fabric and fluffy fur. She wakes up and to her amazement she is wearing the coat she dreamed of. A single tear rolls across her rosy cheek... A woman on the other side of the street smiles to herself and then disappears...
Do you want to be my fairy?
I want to win this for my daughter. I have been looking for a bag for a long time and this is the first one that is perfect for her. It speaks to her love of reading, art, fashion, poetry and independent spirit.
My daughter has helped me through a rough few years that have included the loss of my parents. She has helped me move on from the dysfunctional family situation that resulted after they passed and refocus my life by teaching me these life rules:
1. You can always renegotiate your life.
2. Love the ones that hurt you.
3 Be inspired by all walks of life.
4. Pay attention to you instinct.
5. Don't neglect you death ( Without living life to the hilt, death will be a huge waste of time,)
I want to give her something to thank her for helping me move on and for always having my back. It would be great to be able to give her something unique and individual like her.
Some friend of mine once told me, that even if we are apart, we still are under the same sky. I know it's well known, not unique quote, but this words were important to me and gave me a lot of hope and strenght to face the future. :)
From that time I always wondered, if sky could by smaller, so we could be closer to each other. I just wanted some small, private scrap of sky only for two of us.
Today I found this umbrella
which really fits my little, childish dream.
I would be happy using it someday to walk under "a personal sky" with this one, special person. So if I wouldn't win, I will probably buy it anyway. :)
Pähkäilin kauan, että mikä noista upeista vaatteista olisi kaikkein eniten minua. Päädyin kuitenkin tähän mekkoon, sillä olen pidemmän aikaa haaveillut, että voisin koulujen loppuessa hakea päättötodistuksen itseni näköisenä. Koulussamme ei pahemmin hyväksytä, jos erotut paljon muista ja olen joutunut aikaisemmin asian takia koulussa pahoinpideltäväksi, joten joudun jättämään ketjut ja muut niittivyöt kotiin aamuisin. Olisi mahtava viimeisenä päivänä pukeutua kerrankin omaksi itsekseni.

I wondered for a long time which one of those gorgeous clothes would be the most "me". In the end I chose this dress, because I have been dreaming that I'd be able to celebrate my graduation at school and look like myself. People in my school don't really accept anyone who stands out from the others and I've been abused there because of my looks. That's why I have to leave my rivet belts and chains home every morning. It would be awesome to finally look like myself when the last school day comes.
I have emailed the winners personally this morning. Please check your email!
And please reply as soon as possible!
I hope you all enjoyed this giveaway as much as I did. It was extremely hard to choose only five winners, I felt like you all should've won the item you wished for.
And hopefully I was able to brighten up someone's day by giving away these amazing items today!
