Midweek Morsel: Splurge a Little Giveaway!


As April scoots out the door and May peeks in, it’s the perfect time to host a fun little giveaway to help celebrate a fast approaching Mother’s Day. You don’t have to be a mom to participate. I just like to offer most of my giveaways around holidays to help add to the general mood of celebration. It’s simply one more way of joining in the fun.

So today I give you the Splurge a Little Giveaway! The lucky winner will receive a $20 gift card to Pier 1 Imports and can splurge on a little something for herself or for someone else. The key is to just have fun with it. Let it be a little treat—a splurge!

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post by 6 p.m. next Wednesday, May 6th. If I don’t know you personally or cannot contact you via your website or blog, be sure to include your email address (such as cheryl at cherylbarker dot net). This particular giveaway has a short window of opportunity so throw your name in the hat asap.

It’s not required for the giveaway, but to make it more fun, tell me what item or items from Pier 1 you’d most like to splurge on right now. Personally, I’d have fun splurging on picture frames to help me show off my grandbabies! What about you? What would you like to splurge on?

And if you’re in the mood to splurge on someone else, you’re not alone—God loves to splurge on us, his dearly loved children, all the time. His love for us is extravagant, unending, and unconditional. He delights in blessing us. Join me in basking in his love today, won’t you?

“From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16

    I would love to buy some new placemats for our kitchen table so I hope I win this gift card so I can go shop for them at Pier 1 Imports! I haven’t been in this store in years but keep thinking I will go browse in there. This would be the perfect opportunity to do just that. I could also use some new picture frames for grands, though!!!

    Pier 1 is a fun store. I have done some shopping there for colorful kitchen items to be used for bridal shower gifts.

    Love Pier 1 … We up to our eyeballs in the senior year moodiness. Lol. Pillows for a dorm room from Pier 1 would be great. There can never be too many pillows!

  4. Pier I …. wow! I haven’t been in one of their stores in many years. I would just love to meander down the isles & search for any special treat that catches my attention.
    I greatly enjoy all your writings & particularly your bird pictures that you post. What a blessing to open my email & read some words of encouragement. Thanks Cheryl!

  5. I like their smelly stuff like reed diffusers since I don’t burn candles in the summer.

  6. I would love something from Pier 1. It’s been a while since I’ve been in there. I, too, enjoy your bird pictures and am amazed how good you are at taking them!

    What a sweet thing to do!! Pier 1 is such a nice store. You are so thoughtful.

  8. This time of year I love to see anything bright and cheerful on my patio. Pier 1 has items galore that fit that requirement!

    A dining room tablecloth to add some color for the summer!
