giveaway no. 2 // literary luxe

well, I apologize for the lateness of this giveaway...it has been a horror to try to number my comments now that blogger has implemented their new comment form {which I found out to be named, "threaded comments."} in all honesty, I rather like the new form, but I need a way to number the comments, so that I may announce giveaway winners. :) which, has not been easy at all. also, I must apologize for not returning any of your sweet comments. I have been increasingly overwhelmed by life on and off of the computer, thus explaining my slowness in returning your sweet notes. ;)
