Give It Away Now: Graphic Image Giveaway!

As you read this, I am probably en route on an odyssey that began with a 6-hour drive to Pittsburgh, which will (if all goes according to our insane plan) be followed by three flights, which will put us in Jackson Hole late tonight for a weekend of skiing. But, defying reason or logic, I'm actually happy as a clam about it, because I love to travel. No matter what goes wrong, or how things get messed up, I know I will be sharing an adventure with the man I love, on my way to ski with our wonderful friends in a beautiful place. And that's the amazing thing about travel- sometimes the bad stuff turns out to be good stuff, if you're able to roll with the punches.


Which brings me to my exciting news! One of my favorite companies for leather travel accessories (as well as journals, books and home accessories), Graphic Image, is having their huge annual Winter Sale, with most of their products on sale for up to 75% off. I have shown some of their smaller leather goods before, in a post about great gifts for friends, hostesses and other special occasions, but you have to go on their site to see the full range of beautiful photo albums, frames, wallets, address books and gifts they make for yourself. The mind boggles. And as a special gift for my readers, enter promo code "charmedwife" at checkout and get free shipping until the end of February, too!

But that's not all! The lovely folks at Graphic Image (www.graphicimage.com) like you so much that they have also offered to give some of their gorgeous travel products to me to give to you!

First prize is a gorgeous leather travel travel clutch (upper left, above), valued at $139. You even get to choose the color, you lucky duck.
Second prize is a super-cute leather Passport cover (lower right, above), which retails for $48. Again, you get to take your pick of all their pretty colors, and they will slap your monogram on it, too, if you want. Consider it a little valentine from me to you, my loves!

TO ENTER: Between now and midnight EST on Monday night, February 15, leave a comment (no anonymouses allowed for this one- you've got to leave me an email address!) telling me about where you would go if you could travel anywhere in the world, and you will be entered to win a random drawing for one of the two awesome, amazing prizes above! (One entry per person, please).

PS: Happy Birthday, Daddy! xxooxxoo

I would love to go to the Greek Islands. I went to Greece once (when my brother married a woman from Greece). I love the beauty of the country.

Aspen! Whenever the opportunities arises I'm there. Nothing says relaxing like the mountains, winter or summer!

I would love to go to Austin right now. It's cold here, and I would really enjoy some warm weather, good shopping, and delicious food!

Emily said...

It's a toss-up between Italy, where I could happily travel at least once a year for the rest of my life, or Vietnam.

P.S. I in particular need that passport cover - after getting caught in a torrential rain while hiking in the Cinque Terra a few years back my passport looks as though it's been through the washer and dryer several times over.

Christine said...

I would go to Fiji -- love anyplace where you can stay over the water and do nothing but eat fruit and catch up on reading!

So fun ... I've always wanted to go to Australia and New Zealand.

I would go to Rome! I was there a couple of years ago and I miss it constantly

I would love to go to Turkey - so gorgeous, such good food, and so different from the US! I have a long list of other countries too, of course :)

I would for sure head to Italy right now. After weeks of working off the holiday pounds I would be very very happy with a bowl of pasta and a glass of wine. : )

I think I would head to Ireland - the home of my ancestors!

I would like to go to Tibet, to trek, get to know the culture, ride horses and do a lot of photography. That would be awesome!

If I could go anywhere I would go to India!! My husband's grandmother grew up there and we'd love to see her stomping grounds and to see the Indian culture.

Ali said...

Oh how lovely! I hope you have a wonderful time in Jackson Hole- one of my favorite places to visit. The Snake River Grille has the BEST cocktails!

My answer: Jamaica for my honetmoon in June!

I would love to go to Australia. But right this instant I think I would rather go to Salt Lake City to see my brand new nephew!

Chloe said...

Milan- or Paris, they both sound fabulous.

I'd go to Ireland! I'm so looking forward to seeing friends and family over there again, and eat my weight in Cadbury ;)

Christine said...

This would be perfecto for our upcoming trip to Paris. But if I could travel anywhere, that would probably be Hawaii or the Seychelles or some other warm, beautiful place right about now!

I want to go to Antarctica, a place I think you must experience to truly understand -- one of the last unadulterated frontiers.

kmogilevski said...

I've done a lot of traveling in my life, but my husband has only been outside the U.S. a few times. I would love to go anywhere exotic or foreign with him. The location doesn't really matter, as long as we're there together, exploring the local culture, cuisine, and history.

P.S. Have fun skiing. I've heard Jackson Hole is amazing!

Kayla said...

Buenos Aires, Argentina! Commonly referred to as the "Paris of the South" I would love to travel to Argentina to experience the culture, food and wine, architecture, and of course DANCE THE TANGO with my husband!!!

Dara said...

Backpacking through Europe including stops in Paris, Brussels, Prague, and Amsterdam just to name a few. But if I had to choose, it would be taking my boyfriend on a vespa tour of Tuscany because that is a dream he always talks about...

Melissa said...

It is my goal in life to visit all 50 states. I'd also like to get my passport stamped as many times as possible. My first stop would be Paris, France to experience the Eiffel Tower and the lights of the city in person.
