Announcing: The P&P95Forever Club's First Giveaway!

Tomorrow, an extremely amazing thing is going to happen.

The authors of this blog, Amy and Melody, are going to see each other in real life for the very first time.

Yes, yes, 'tis true. (And if you wish to know more, read one of these posts.)  In celebration of this, we are hosting a giveaway.

Well, not just because of that, of course--we have been contemplating a giveaway for some time--but we thought this would be a splendid time to actually do it.  The two of us can't have ALL the fun, right?

And we are super excited about what we have to offer you, thanks to the contribution of several generous Jane Austen-loving ladies!  Yes, I think let's talk about the goodies first.

Mr Darcy Elizabeth Bennet Pride and Prejudice Digital Download
This lovely print is a digital file (yes, thank you, Mary...) that can be used for your own personal crafts... it can go on things like cards and t-shirts, or even just to print out and frame. The perk about this prize is that it allows our outside-of-the-U.S. readers to be able to enter. 


Mr.Darcy  and Lizzy Get Lost 5x7 art print.  Jane Austen. Pride and Prejudice.    Elizabeth and Georgiana at the piano.  Art print. 5x7.
How beautiful are these?! And they are delightfully faithful to our own dear 1995 adaptation! They would belong on the wall of any P&P95 fan's sitting room. 

So, so excited about this one... have you ever heard of the Bingley's Teas company, where you can find all sorts of delightful Jane Austen-themed teas? Weeeell...

In this box of tea you get a sample of the teas themed for "Miss Elizabeth," "Mr. Darcy," "Sweet Jane," and a "Longbourn Wedding Tea." Isn't that dreamy??? The sampler was designed particularly for P&P's 200th anniversary, and now it graces our little giveaway.

And now, all you have to do is enter! ;)  Let's try to make this easy for you, anyways...

I posted about the giveaway on my blog here

I already submitted my "How I Met P&P95" story

I visited Bingley's Teas and like several including Emma's Pefect Match and Longbourne Wedding Tea and Marianne's Wild Abandon.

I visited Alice Flynn's etsy site and thought her Pemberly and Pride and Prejudice Buttons were cute.

I visited Masha Laurence's etsy site and wanted everything. I like the Jane Austen Heroines and Heroes art prints, the Sir Percy art print, the JA I said.
I think that should be 6 more entries.
