I Heart... Goodie Bags

I Heart... Goodie Bags, and I have three to give away next Wednesday as part of Blogapalooza.

What? You don’t know about Blogapalooza? It’s only the biggest event on the planet next Wednesday! As of this moment we have 25 blogs participating – and the number continues to grow! Check out the sidebar at the right to see what Blogs are a-Palooza-ing.  But you don’t have to blog to win a Goodie Bag. Just drop by Just Go! on Wednesday and make a comment in the Goodie Bag post, and you will be entered to win.

So, here’s a sneak peak into the famed Goodie Bag contents…

The Tote All Bag (pictured): I love purses. But I am a practical girl, and I hate the shuffle of stuff from purse to purse to purse. I was hunting for a good bag that would allow me to move my stuff from purse to purse when I discovered The Tote All Bag. I ordered one (the small size), and I LOVE it! It is cute, functional, and machine washable.  When I told Tricia Paul, the genius behind The Tote All, that I love her bag, she kindly donated three: two small and one large bag. So there will be one Tote All Bag in each Goodie Bag!

Hayden-Harnett Passport Holder (pictured): Hayden-Harnett designs handbags, accessories, and apparel, and they have donated three leather passport holders. So, guess what! Each Goodie Bag also includes a luxury leather passport holder for all of that travel you are planning to do.  They are buttery-soft, smell yummy, and have lots of nice pockets.  I have a thing for good leather (come shopping with me in Florence some time...) and these are lovely.  They come in a range of colors, and Hayden-Harnett donated three:  black, plum, and oyster.  

Now, to help you with those plans…

R. Todd Felton: Todd and I share a publisher (Roaring Forties Press), and he has kindly donated copies of his books, A Journey into Ireland’s Literary Revival and A Journey into the Transcendentalist’s New England.

Goodie Bags contain one book or the other. Start planning your trips now!

Rome-in-a-Bag: I am also including an autographed copy of my book, A Journey into Michelangelo’s Rome in each bag! Use it when you put that passport holder to good use. Or just sit back and read about one of Italy’s favorite sons and his work in Rome. And along with the book, I’m including a few goodies to transport you to Rome, if only in spirit.

So, all you have to do is drop by on Wednesday, October 29 to put your name in the drawing. 
Mark your calendars!
