Because it’s Friday.

Because it’s summer.

Because it’s hot.

Because I’m a girl.

Because I like flowers.

Because I like you.

But most especially…

Because I’m just nice.

Today – a giveaway.

From me to you:

A lovely satin flower (or if you have girls, I will make them for you and your daughters – up to 5. But if you really have 6 daughters, I’ll make one for the 6th one too. Because I was the youngest child. And I know all the abuse she puts up with from her older siblings.) πŸ˜‰

Flower measures approximately 3″ in diameter and can be used in a multitude of ways including: on a headband, clipped in your hair, on your purse, shoes, sweater, etc.

How to enter:

I’ll give you several chances of winning. Because of the reasons I already listed above, but most especially the last one.

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite food.
2. Like Brown Sugar Toast on facebook & leave a comment telling me you did.
3. Subscribe to updates by email or reader & leave a comment telling me you did.
4. Blog about this giveaway.
5. Follow me on Twitter.

Well, how do you like that? 5 ways to win. I’m a nice person, aren’t I? πŸ˜‰

Winner will be chosen via The giveaway will close next Thursday, July 14 and I will announce the winner on Friday morning, July 15.

And if you win, you better not make up anything about having 6 daughters if you don’t really have all 6 daughters as your own. No adopting just to win the flowers.


However, if you send me a really convincing argument for your nieces or something, I might buy into it.

key word: might

Happy Friday! πŸ™‚

    Hi-ho! Hi-ho! I heart Mexican food πŸ™‚ Yummy yum yum. And of course, I love the usual Filipino food like Pancit (noodles), Lumpia (eggrolls), and Adobo. Two words for ya’: Madelyn Jane. Bahahahahahah!

  2. Carol I. says:

    My favorite food is pizza! And, salads … I love to try all the amazing ways to put together vegies & fruits! … And, of course, Brownies! Yep! Brownies, Pizza and Salad are my favs!

  3. Beka says:

    Wow, favorite food…that’s almost like choosing a favorite song for me. πŸ™‚ I’m going to say any kind of food with sugar (especially partial to ice cream and cookies!) and salads. I know, what a mix. My husband says that at least I balance things out πŸ™‚ I LOVE green salads (Applebees Oriental chicken salad, caesar salads, garden salads with croutons, etc) and Ben thinks that I’m especially weird because I often order salad when we go out to eat. What can I say? I’m my mother’s daughter…

  4. Christa says:

    Mmmm…that oriental chicken salad sounds delish!!! I just ordered salad today when I got my free meal at Chickfila for dressing like a cow. Oh yes – salad and a milkshake. πŸ˜‰

  5. Sarah says:

    My current favorite is a Georgia peach, since we just left there and I ate 16 in 4 days. And we have a bag in the car, just waiting for me to devour them. Hahahaha! But I know that’s not something that can be made. Hmmm … we don’t have a grill, but I love stuff on the grill. Especially corn on the cob. And asparagus. And delicious unhealthy hamburgers. Yumme!

  6. becky says:

    I’d have to say my favorite right now is all the summer fruit and veggies… we’ve been enjoying yummy watermelon and strawberries lately. πŸ™‚ But of course any kind of Italian food is my all-time favorite, especially spagetti and lasagna. Oh, and chocolate. πŸ˜‰

  7. Christa says:

    o wow – I would have been right there with you. yum – I love fresh peaches like that. I wish I was closer to Gaffney so I could go to that roadside stand and eat a whole bag. YUM.

  8. Christa says:

    yum, yum. That makes me think of Olive Garden. And their breadsticks and salad. And delightful soup. And now I’m hungry again! πŸ˜‰

  9. Hey Christa!

    So nice meeting you today! Thought I would drop by your blog and say “hi!” =) I make those satin flowers too and my daughter wears them all the time. And I steal them and wear them in my hair and on my sweater, etc. They are wonderful. =)

    And my favorite food right now is watermelon. And Gatorade. Does that count as a food?? And grilled hot dogs. Okay, so I’m pregnant and have lots of favorites, lol.

  10. Christa says:

    haha-yep, I’m right there with ya. I had a big bowl of raisin bran when I got home from our thrifting outing today. πŸ˜‰

  11. Jenny says:

    Yes, I know, I have only boys but my niece would LOVE this…she’s such a girly, girl! So I follow you on Twitter. #1

  12. Jenny says:

    With this heat, my favorite food right now is ice cream! Otherwise, steak, sweet potato w/BROWN SUGAR, a side of sour cream for my steak, spinach salad and warm, sweet, delicious rolls. :0)

  13. Christa says:

    o good grief, that sounds fantastic! steak with sour cream? never tried it, but sounds great! now I want to cook. okay, moment has passed. it’s too hot to cook. I think I’ll eat a cookie instead. πŸ˜‰

  14. Rachel K says:

    What a beautiful giveaway! I found you through Centsational Girl.My favorite food…hmm that’s a hard one. I love this Vietnamese restaurant in Galveston! They have amazing chargrilled chicken!

  15. Karen Wiebe says:

    Glad I finally figured out how to leave a comment – not to enter for the flowers, but just to tell you how much I enjoy your emails( blog) I dont remember how I stumbled onto them, but thanks! πŸ™‚

  16. Emily says:

    I absolutely LOVE pizza!!! I could eat it anywhere, anytime. I love all kinds of pizza, except ham and pineapple…that combination is just yucky to me! I love your satin flowers and I’ve always wanted to make one, but I haven’t had time.

  17. Favorite food is definitely going to be manacotti….I always tell myself I’m going to try something new, but the appeal of all that ricotta cheese beckons me….:)
