Giveaway week- Wednesday


Welcome back for the 3rd day of giveaway week!  I'm giving away cool Korean stuff to celebrate my blog reaching 20,000 pageviews.  Granted, most of those views were from family members and friends- but I've had this blog for quite some time and it took a long time to reach 20,000! So let's celebrate!

Today's awesome giveaway item is this Korean pottery bowl/dish/jewelry holder (can you tell I'm not exactly sure what it is for?).  It is a beautiful light green color known as celadon, common in Korean pottery here.  It is about 5 inches in diameter, and just a few inches tall.  It resembles a flower.  There are many ceramic shops around Songtan, all offering a few variations of the same kind of things- but the green color seen here is very distinctive.


If you would like to win this piece of Korean pottery, just leave me a comment telling me WHAT FOREIGN COUNTRY YOU MOST WANT TO VISIT.  I'm not yelling, I'm just putting that here in big letters to get your attention.  :)

Remember the rules:  Each day I will post the item being given away, and how you can win. At the END OF THE WEEK (so after entries are closed Midnight Eastern time on Friday) I will post the winners and send out messages to notify them and confirm the shipping address.  If you are not my facebook friend, make sure to include your email address in your comment.  I will mail (from an APO address, so be patient) your prize.  Please only enter one time for each post- and spread the word!  These kinds of giveaways are much more fun when you get new people involved!!  (And PS- if you have a blog, why not host a giveaway, huh?)

France. So much art, architecture, food. I have only been to the Caribbean and Mexico, so somewhere in Europe would be interesting.

*Is the piece of pottery maybe a ring bowl?

I would love to go to New Zealand! It has always fascinated me. I met a girl from NZ when we went to Ecuador last Christmas.

This is a really fun idea! Maybe I will consider this when Apple Season is in full swing.

I think Spain would be awesome to visit!

Oooh! THat is super-pretty! I most want to visit Ireland. I've been there, but I've got to take Preston! Also, India is very high on my list.

Oooh! Cute dish!

I used to really want to visit Madagascar because of the unique flora and fauna, but now I think probably Australia.

I am not very brave so I was thinking just a trip to England would be nice. I'd get to see a lot of history, maybe even do some research on my family history and kinda sorta but basically understand the language.

Hi Mary - Have been enjoying reading your blog. You have been busy since I saw you at Danielle and Paul's wedding! I would most like to visit Italy - for the food, scenery, and wine - and so much history, too.

Rachel said...

Spain! I have never been there and would love to experience the food and culture.

Aunt Kathy said...

I have always wanted to go to Switzerland. Australia is high on the list as well as Austria, Germany, and China. I just like to travel and really I will go almost any where.

Heather E. said...

OOoh, good question! I think it's a toss up between 3 countries, actually. I *REALLY* want to go to Italy and Greece, but after my bestie took her honeymoon there, Australia is now on my list, too! They each offer very different things, so it would be hard for me to choose ONE. I want to go everywhere, eventually!

Angela said...

Sweden is what is at the top of my list! Trying to figure out how to buy a Volvo from there next time we buy a car so we can get the trip over with it and get to see the factory!

I think Australia. Of all of the places to travel I think I would feel like I missed out if I never make it to australia.
