    ..uh—I’d love to enter, but why is the date on the Surprise Giveaway text 5.16.07? Did I miss it or is Bloglines giving me old messages as new?

    And I TOTALLY am adoring that uber darling apron, GORGEOUS plates and lovely card set!

  22. franki durbin says:

    I can’t help but adore the exotic patterns. There’s something about the modern textile look that just says “must have” – great finds!

  23. the antibride says:

    should we be getting a confirmation e.mail to know we are signed up for the newsletter???

  24. hiphostess says:

    no confirmation email at this point! I’m actually collecting the emails for her and giving her the list once the contest is done – so everyone will actually be added onto their mailing list next week. Thanks for checking in on that!

    Jenn :)

  25. Miss Five says:

    I would DIE to wear this apron. HOLY SMOKES! I just sucked all the air out of the room when I saw this giveaway.

  26. Jthemilker says:

    I love this stuff – so cool.

  27. Anonymous says:

    How many times may we enter? I initially questioned the validity of my entry since I did not receive a confirmation email, so I went back and re-entered. Now I see from the previous comment that we will not receive a confirmation email until next week. But now I have entered twice….so either that will be noticed and one will be deleted OR more than one entry per person will be accepted. Hmmmmm. (Just trying to stay honest here!) :)

  28. hiphostess says:

    Hi Anon –

    No worries – I always like to double-check things too :) There is just one entry per person – the database only counts each email once, so duplicate emails will only count as one entry. This keeps things fair for everyone. Hope that helps clear things up :)

  29. amy kligman says:

    as a plate-o-holic, i must say, they are gorgeous.

  30. Laura says:

    I love those plates!

  31. Katie says:

    I’m about to move into a new place and I have NO tableware! Those dishes and trivets would be the perfect addition to my new condo (my first time on my own…!) I can’t wait to entertain, too, in my new place :) hopefully wearing a new, adorable apron!

  32. Christy says:

    All of it is beautiful!

  33. dubya says:

    oh man, I LOOOVE those aprons! I’ll have to cruise on over and purchase one!

  34. Shannon says:

    Love the black and white!!

  35. April says:

    Those are just awesome – I sure hope to win!

  36. coco+kelley says:

    i love the plates, and i desperately need a new apron! i saw that one at the gift show in NY and wanted to buy it on the spot! i’ll cross my fingers for winning it here instead ;)

  37. elysa says:

    I just showed the apron to my finance and said I’d be more motivated to cook if I had this cute apron and he said Ill buy you any apron you want, within reason, if you will cook more =). So what do ya think does that mean he is going to buy it for me?

  38. hiphostess says:

    Elysa –
    I’d tell him that at just $34 for such a fantastic apron that you will look so cute in, it’s probably a deal he shouldn’t pass up! ;)

  39. Emily says:

    so cute!

  40. Biddy says:

    so, will the winner be announced here or on violet?
