Souvenirs From Mexico Giveaway!!

You didn't think i came back from my vacation empty handed, right? well, i brought some souvenirs from our trip for one lucky reader!!

The first souvenir is a mini sarape, which is hand made in Saltillo. A sarape is kind of a blanket but may be as well something you'll wear as a shawl. It's very colorful and beautiful! The one i brought is mini, too small to wear but perfect for a place mat or to put it under your flower pots to add some cheerfulness to a room :D

The second souvenir it's a beautifully crafted woven bag/purse made of palm. You can use it as a cosmetic bag or to put in letters or small treasures ;) This bag is made by hand in Tabasco by local artisans/indigenous people, so it's a real treasure :)

How to participate:

-Leave a comment bellow!
-yeah, that's it!

I'll make the raffle on Monday the 17 (that's a week from now!) and announce the winner that same day via blog/twitter and facebook ;)

I hope you are excited about my giveaway :) I am truly happy to give this to one of my lovely readers! Good luck to you all!
