honey giveaway

Yes it's true, I'm hosting a giveaway. And it's a Honey Jr giveaway. Well I'm not giving away him per se, but some of his candles (I wonder how many entries I'd get if I gave away Honey Jr?).

{adorable honeyness}

Honey Jr has made beeswax candles with his own two honey hands and has kindly given them to me, so that I can pass them on to one of you. I had wanted to take a photo of Honey Jr with his candles, but you know, Christmas happened, and now Honey Jr has gone off to Thailand for three weeks (Fifty is beside himself with sadness). 
So allow me to present to you, the Honey Jr candle collection:

{made by Honey Jr's bees}

Anyone who wins these candles will be the proud owner of authentic Le Petit Village merchandise, made by Honey Jr and his amazing bees. To have a little part of Honey Jr sent to your home,  all you have to do is leave a comment. For an extra entry, become a follower and leave another comment saying so (and if you already are, which I'm guessing you probably are, leave a comment about that too), and for a third chance, become a fan on Facebook (and then leave a comment saying that also). Easy as honey pie. 

Contest is closed next Friday the 21st.

 The lucky winner will be announced 

Saturday the 22nd. 

(be sure to leave contact details).

bisou


P.S. Thanks for all the happy thoughts you sent me. 
Really and truly, thank you.

  2. Oh and I think somehow I deserve extra points for being the first commenter... Haha. When I was little my mom would buy us soft sheets of beeswax and we'd make them into candles or just mash them into useless balls of wax--when we were really little! Haha!
    What a fun treasure :)

  3. I signed up as a follower! I'd sure love one of Honey Jr's candles.
    So sorry about your china and crystal :(

  4. Lets get this right....

    Honey Jr goes off to Thailand for 3 weeks and you sneak into his house and start giving away his prized candle collection?

    All the best

    P.S. I'm a followed and a Facebook fan thingy.

    P.P.S. If you are going to do the "Honey Jr's Prized Possessions" giveaway thing - has he got any Rambo DVDs lying around?

  14. I've got enough candles. I want Honey, Jr. *LOL* Nevermind the fact that I don't speak a lick of French. We don't have to talk. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Perhaps he could deliver? I won't mind waiting til he gets back to France. Actually, he could bring Fifty as well.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm a bit disappointed. When I saw the title of your post I thought you were giving away Honey Jr. I suppose the candles are nice too.

  17. "Honey, Honey, how you thrill me ha-ha, Honey, Honey,
    Honey, Honey, nearly kill me, ha-ha, Honey, Honey,
    I heard about you before,
    I wanted to know some more,
    And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine"
    Everybody sings!!

  22. It seems that I'm the only one here who doesn't want Honey Jr. - just his candles (and maybe his Rambo DVDs?)

    Does this mean I've won?

    All the best

  30. I also vote with including Honey Jr in the giveaway ;))) I'm a follower!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm in. But just for the candles!

    And I'm now a FB follower.

    Anything else?

    Can't believe you didn't kill that delivery man on the spot. So unhappy about your china and crystal.

  32. oohhh how I love a contest! enter me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I would like if Honey Jr delivered these to me personally ;) Cute, cute, cute!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm a follower, of course! Also, if you plan to give away Honey Jr anytime soon, I will be there in a heartbeat -- so adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think you should give away the candles in the ubiquitous infomercial style...

    i.e. For only 19.95 you get these genuine, handmade beeswax candles directly from the hives in Provence.

    but wait...there's more!!!

    you also get a striking, handsome, Provencal man, HONEY JR. He comes with a delightful French accent, all of the necessary male accouterments, AND he loves dogs.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Already done on all 3 counts. Seems like honey Jr could do a mail-order girlfriend if he wanted! One lucky girl gets honey Jr, you'd get a new English speaking girlfriend. Win-win for everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Honey Jr. is adorable. Does anyone else think he looks like Jude Law? I love the candles. Sorry about your china. Can you purchase replacements? It won't be the same but maybe it would make you feel better.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Um. How old is Honey Jr? I have a younger sister. Let's set them up! She doesn't speak much French, but whatever! And I'm all over the candles and a follower. Fanning you on FB. Never noticed that.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm a follower! I'll take some of those candles!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I was unaware of how good looking Honey Jr. was. I would love the candles! I have a weird love/hate relationship with bees. When they're just buzzing around spreading pollen and making honey, super cute. Fuzzy little black and yellow buzzers! But the second they get within a 5 foot radius of me I start to panic. I get hives from bee stings and one time in 8th grade in front of all of the cool kids I got a bee stuck in my shirt and ripped it off only to show off my wee little bra for my wee little boobies and the THREE bee stings which were spreading hives violently all over my body...

    But wax candles! I can really appreciate wax candles, especially homemade ones by a handsome frenchman. Sign me up!

    ReplyDelete
  41. PS. I'm SO sorry about your broken shipment of crystal and family heirlooms. If I were on your continent I would help you egg the deliver guy's truck.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sara,

    If I don't win these babies, can I buy another set from you or Honey, Jr.? I must have them. Really. Must.

    1) leaving comment.
    2) have been a follower for longer than I've been a blogger
    3) already following you on FB

    I'm still feeling badly about your china....and mad at UPS or whoever treated your treasures so poorly.

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, I see why you call him Mr Honey. And it has nothing to do with the bees.

    Would love to win these, do they smell sweet as they burn? They must, surely. Yummo.

    ReplyDelete
  44. And yes, I'm already a stalker, er, follower.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The same Mr. Honey who makes the honey wine... how lucky the Petit Village is to have a character like him! I keep saying I have to come up there sometime... :)

    ReplyDelete

  47. I am laughing uncontrollably looking for facial tissues.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Still laughing. I'll take these candles!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd follow you without the candles - oops, I do! But they are lovely and, while I would love to have Honey, Jr. himself, I'd be happy to "settle" for his lovely candles. Thanks, Sara!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. so, wait, you are positive honey jr isn't available for a give away? haha :) cuz i mean i wouldn't complain if you accidentally shipped him instead :)

    but i do love candles so i would be thrilled either way!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sara -
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog because now I found your blog! I absolutely love beeswax candles, I made some myself as a kid. I think they smell wonderful.

    Also, I think you'd get a heck of a response if you were giving away honey jr:)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  52. cou cou! count me in! I'm already a follower but now I "like" you on facebook. (How'd you do that, by the way? More research necessary on this front.)

    {One of the reasons I'm following is to be one of the first to go for Honey when you put him up on the block! ;}

    ReplyDelete
  53. Lovely, lovely! Isn't it fun to give away other people's things?!

    Sending you happy thoughts and bright rays of sunshine

    ReplyDelete
  54. The candles are nice... but Honey Jr. is SUPER CUTE!!! Please send him to Boston. Or maybe I can come to France? I'm getting kind of bored of the US already anyway. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Will the candles be delivered by Honey Jr? Please say they will.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Beautiful! The candles :) Please count me in! And you know I'm a follower! ♥
