The Prairie Girl's Guide To Life Giveaway!!

I recently purchased a slew of super fun books on Amazon and will be posting reviews of them in the next few weeks.

The first one is The Prairie Girl's Guide to Life: How to Sew a Sampler Quilt & 49 Other Pioneer Projects for the Modern Girl, a book I really enjoyed.

The style is reminiscent of an almanac, acting as a compendium of common knowledge. Oh wait, knowledge that was common when my great-grandmother was a prairie girl! The information ranges from how to make rock candy (surprisingly simple) to darning socks, washing livestock, and lacing corsets. Don't forget making your own night cream, predicting the weather, and knitting a shawl!

My favorite would have to be how to braid your own hair. That is something I could never do when I was younger, so I would just jump around behind my mom in the kitchen, saying, "MOM, MOM, MOM, braid my hair!" I tried it using the technique outlined in the book and I did it!

Now for the good part: I'd like to give away a copy of this book to a lucky reader! It's really easy to enter and you even have 5 different ways to do so:

1. Follow my blog or add me to your RSS feed.
2. Fan me on Facebook.
3. Follow me on Twitter and tweet this: "Prairie Girl's Guide To Life Giveaway at Kate & Oli - http://tinyurl.com/ykvb8tk"
4. Heart my etsy shop.
5. Blog about this giveaway (please leave a link to your post).
6. Any purchases on etsy will get an additional 5 entries! (Leave a comment with your username.)

Please leave a separate comment for each entry. I know that can get tedious, but it's the easiest way to ensure fairness!

On Monday, November 2nd, I will select a winner at random! The deadline for entering is midnight PST November 1st.

Good Luck To All!
