Quotation Marks :: Monday Giveaway ::

Hello to all of Lena’s amazing followers
My name is Farrell, and I blog at Quotation Marks. I post a quote a day on my blog and I have followers ranging from bookworms to Beatles fans!

One of my favorite quotes with a picture of Emily wearing A Time for Everything scarf.

At my etsy shop, I’ve tried to create the perfect gifts.  

I‘ll never forget the best present that I ever received.  I received it while I was on my honeymoon.  My husband, Erik, secretly planned everything and I didn’t know a thing about our trip; I didn’t know where we were going, what we were doing, or where we would stay.  

After a long flight to California (we were going to Carmel!), Erik led me to a car rental garage and seemed really excited about the car that we would be driving for the week.  

Without being able to stop it, a thought entered my head, I hope it’s a red Mustang convertible! But I quickly extinguished that thought, as there was NO way for Erik to know that that was the car of my dreams, and I didn’t want him to see any disappointment in my eyes when he showed me the car he had specially chosen for our honeymoon.

But can you believe it? Around the corner was waiting a red Mustang convertible. Erik tossed the keys to me with a huge grin.  

“How did you know?!” I asked him.

“I heard you mention once” once! “that you’ve always wanted a red convertible, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity!”

And that was the best present I ever received: the rental of a red convertible.  It had nothing to do with money.  It had everything to do with thoughtfulness. 

I was so happy and overwhelmed.  A simple present had made me feel so loved.

This feeling of surprise, love, and happiness is exactly what I hope to recreate when I give a present.  Whether it is a sad occasion or a joyous one, I don’t want my gifts to have anything to do with a price tag. I want them to speak for me!  I have always been on the hunt for the perfect gift: personal, articulate, and beautiful.

Carrying Your Heart Script Scarf

After years of searching I decided to make it myself! The script scarves and baby blankets in my etsy shop are designed to say it all.  It is always the best when I make someone a scarf or baby blanket, and they open it and exclaim, “That’s exactly the quote I would pick out for myself!”

The Little Darling script scarf

I would like to offer you a chance to win a giveaway from my etsy shop!  The winner will be able to pick either a custom script scarf or a custom baby blanket.  Whether you give it away or keep it for yourself (I may or may not own 4 of my own scarves), I hope that you find Quotation Marks to be the source of your new favorite present!

Thank you, Farrell! Not a bad to start to the week, right?? I'd LOVE to grab a baby blanket for my new little niece... I think I'd probably end up with a Beatles or Elvis quote! ♥

Giveaway is open to everyone & ends this Thursday night at midnight!
Good luck!

  1. What a thoughtful way to give a gift to someone! I'm definitely going to have to check out her etsy shop! Hope you have a great week!

  2. I'd probably get a scarf with my favorite bible verse on it...or a baby blanket with some lines from a Paddington the Bear book. :)

  3. What a great idea! I love quotes =) I would probably get a scarf with a C.S Lewis quote on it.

  4. I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
    -Douglas Adams

  5. Give your burdens to the Lord

  6. "Live right now, and just be yourself. It doesn't matter if it's good enough for someone else."

  7. I think I would love the scarf "I carry your heart in black writing" or "A time for Everything" in black.

  8. Awesome giveaway. And great blogs. I would have my fave pabl neruda quote on it.

  9. I would probably have it read the lyrics to one of the songs my husband and I have written. So many to choose from though...would be hard to narrow it down! If we did a baby blanket, I might have the lyrics to the lullaby I'm working on put on it.

  10. I would love a scarf with the quote from a favorite book or song. Right now I'm thinking Hey Jude, by the Beatles. The song reminds me of my dad.
    These scarves are amazing. I'm so smitten!

  11. If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden

  12. “Do you think I've gone round the bend?"
    "I'm afraid so. You're mad, bonkers, completely off your head. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
    ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

  13. Maybe... "Carpe diem!" or something else in Latin. Or, a travel quote like, "The World is a Book..."

    Brooke, The Dessert First Way

  14. i already have a little darling scarf that i got for my 16th birthday this year... i'd love another scarf for myself!
    however, a very important person died last week- the director of guidence at my highschool. who was married to my freshman english teacher. those two basically ran the place and i learned more in that class than could ever be dreamed of. they were both very old and had taught a very very long time, so my teacher thought it was a good time to retire. very strange- it was sudden (during the summer) and her husband had not retired with her, but no one thought much of it...

    a few weeks later, he suddenly died in his sleep. she's lost her husband. she has no kids- just the ones that she teaches- but now she's retired.... and it breaks my heart.

    she was in love with shakespeare. that's all we ever really did in class. sonnets and plays... you name it. her favorite sonnet was sonnet 116. if you aren't familiar with it, it's about eternal love throughout old age and even the death of your lover.

    i feel like giving her this sonnet on a quotation marks scarf would just let her know that we're thinking of her and reminding her that it will be okay. (-:

    rip mr king

  15. Love is patient, love is kind..... (1cor13)

  16. Such a tough question! I took a look at the scarves posted on Etsy, and I like the Carrying Your Heart Script Scarf, but I'm not sure if it is the right one for me.

    They are all so lovely, and the idea is brilliant!

  17. something inspirational to keep me going

  18. I'd love a baby blanket that says "Let her sleep...for when she wakes, she will move mountains." or something like that. :)

  19. all email sub under: e.ringwald at yahoo

  20. I'd choose a Doctor Who Quote. Maybe: Think you've seen it all? Think again. Outside those doors, we might see anything. We could find new worlds, terrifying monsters, impossible things. And if you come with me... nothing will ever be the same again!

  21. I've heard some great Chuck Swindoll quotes this week...

    "I search for the one who searches me."

    "Do not give in to worry, give in to courage!"

  22. I'd love to win the scarf! Thanks for the giveaway, Lena & Farrell.!

  23. I think a Narnia quote would be perfect for these scarves! <3Lindsey

  24. I am loving these scarves. SO CUTE!

  25. Probably a proverbs verse. I'd have to think on which one though, so many good ones.


  26. Oh my goodness, these are the prettiest. I don't know how I would ever choose, but I know that it would be lyrics.

    Maybe a line or two from Nirvana.
