You know one of my favorite gardening people is P. Allen Smith, right? He's not only done a lot to promote gardening, he's just a downright good guy and a lot of fun to be around. So when I was asked if I wanted to host a giveaway of a wreath that's part of his 2012 Holiday Collection, I jumped at the chance. (I'd love to win this myself!)
There are actually four different collections, and I chose a wreath from the Chocolate & Spice Collection.
It was the chocolate that got me. No, there isn't actually chocolate in this wreath, but I liked the thought of that! The 20" wreath is handmade by the Berry Family of Nurseries from sustainably harvested Noble Fir boughs from the Cascade Mountains in western Oregon. It has fragrant pine cones attached, along with chocolate colored ribbon, bittersweet-inspired berries, and persimmon decorative balls.
For a chance to win one, just leave a comment to this blog post, telling me about your favorite chocolate treat. (Mine is English Toffee, even though the chocolate isn't really the part that I love so much about it!) Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you're the winner!
The giveaway will end on Sunday, November 25, 2012, at midnight, EST. That's a busy weekend - better enter now so you don't forget!
If you want to see other items in the P. Allen Smith Holiday Collection, they're featured on his website. The Colonial, Chocolate & Spice, Williamsburg, Lodge, and Classic Collections can be purchased online at HomeDepot.com and the Rustic Collection at Frontgate.com. The Collection is also available at independent garden centers across the country and Reasor's in northeast Oklahoma.

UPDATE: As of 10:00 PM, Tuesday, November 20, 2012, the Rafflecopter form and all information entered there has disappeared. :-( This is why I always have people enter both by leaving a comment and filling out the Rafflecopter form. Since this has occurred, I will just use Random.org to choose a winner from all those that have left comments. This is how Rafflecopter chooses a winner anyway, but it's a nice way to have contact information (as long as it doesn't disappear). Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you in your comment. Thanks for your understanding!
