A fragrant and beautiful GIVEAWAY for my FOLLOWERS

Hello, ya'll....
OCTOBER IS 
BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
and I pledge to post something PINK every single post for the entire month.
If you'd like, I would LOVE for YOU to POST PINK every post 
throughout the month of OCTOBER.

This is just a way to keep AWARENESS up front and personal.
...paying tribute to all our sisters suffering and fighting this terrible disease...
tribute to all who have won the fight.....and to others who have lost.
I pray for them all the time.

I pray for a cure for cancer, ALL cancers, all the time.
Please join me.
To kick off this PINK MONTH, 
is  graciously offering the giveaway of
A BEAUTIFUL, DEEP PINK CANDLE, APPLE FESTIVAL, (an $18-$20 value)
to one of my 
LUCKY FOLLOWERS.
"This APPLE FESTIVAL fragrance takes you back to fall festivals with tones of warm apple slices, sandalwood, oak moss and sweet musk!"
Doesn't that sound WONDERFUL....such a great fragrance for FALL....
APPLES can't be beat for AUTUMN LOVE.
GOOSE CREEK CANDLE COMPANY
 offers the most awesome fragrances to suit everyone's preference.
NEW NOTE:
I have just been informed that if YOU, THE WINNER, should prefer
A DIFFERENT CANDLE from the APPLE FESTIVAL,
Goose Creek is COOL WITH THAT.
So, ladies, it is a candle of YOUR CHOICE. 

I am tickled to tell you that the nice folks at GOOSE CREEK CANDLE
