Happy Mother’s Day Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed, but please enjoy reading our review!

Try Vermont First and the following companies would like to THANK all Mothers for their endless love, support, guidance, caring, compassion, nurturing, and friendship.

Here is what you can win in this amazing giveaway:

*A one of a kind Burke Bag made by Burke artist and quilter Dee McDowell. This bag is made with over 10 different batik fabrics. I have a Burke Bag in shades of pink. It was given to me for my baby shower and it was one of my favorite gifts! It’s gorgeous! The inside of the bag is lined with 6 pouches, making it easy to store and organize everything you need.

*A 3 brownie sampler from Vermont Brownie Company. VT Brownie sent my family this same sampler. It brings a smile to my face to think about the 3 delicious brownies we enjoyed. Their signature brownie was like an explosion of chocolate. It was chocolate on chocolate on chocolate! I made an effort to eat it very slowly so the wonderfulness lasted just a big longer! The maple toffee crunch brownie had a thick layer of sweet maple toffee candy. It tasted like sugaring season in Vermont. The blondie brownie delivered something wonderfully different with each bite. They are overfilled with white, milk, and dark chocolate. Have your milk ready! These homemade brownies have made it to the top of my list of favorite sweets.

*Jewelry from Lake Island Girl on Etsy. Brooke has sent me a beautiful bracelet made with sea glass and a cute little bottle necklace filled with sea glass found on the shores of Lake Champlain. The brass bracelet has earth tones and shades of green sea glass. The necklace has vibrant bold blue sea glass. Try Vermont First, and wear Vermont First thanks to this local artist!

*Two pints of ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s and a pint cozy to keep your pint cool but not your hand. Those that know me well know that I like to end each evening with a small bowl of ice cream. I have for as long as I can remember. Lately I am loving Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake. It taste like summer! For those that need a bit of chocolate everyday I recommend Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Therapy, it’s just that! Your two pint certificates can be redeemed at most retailers.

Thank you to Dee McDowell, Lake Island Girl, and Vermont Brownie for sponsoring this giveaway.
