Lucky Leprechuan Blog Hop & Giveaway


Click this Hop Banner to find more great free giveaways!


Welcome to the Lucky Leprechuan Blog Hop! I participate in this hop every year because it's fun to celebrate the spunky, dreamy Irish culture and traditions. This month I'm giving away an eclectic gift set to one reading, gadget-loving follower, including an autographed copy of my Regency romance, Josette, and a bag of nifty kitchen clips from my favorite gadget store, Ikea.

Clips for what? And why? I love sharing my favorite products and discoveries which I do every month in my Favs posts, so for this giveaway I thought I'd combine the posts and toss in a new bag of Ikea's multi-purpose clips that can be used to hold just about anything shut.

The first time I saw them, I didn't think much about them other than they looked like giant hair barrettes. Boy, was I wrong! Ikea clips fit on any size or shape of bag and snap shut, holding firmly until you want them to open. I use them for bread bags, chips, frozen food and produce sacks. Because the clips come in a range of sizes, they'll hold shut a restaurant size bag of french fries down to the smallest little baggie. They make life easy, and an easy life is a balanced life!

Your book sounds terrific and I already follow this blog.
I don't have an Ikea close by, but think those clips look like a great idea.
