Literary Heroine Blog Party - Join the Fun!

{This event is now closed}
You are cordially invited. . . 
To the Literary Heroine Blog Party!
~ February 16-28 ~
Are you enthralled with the charming stories of heroines of yesteryear?  Do you t hrill at the sight of a lovely, century-old book?  Have you ever read a favorite novel up in the airy retreat of a graceful tree?  Do you often catch yourself thinking of the inhabitants of Avonlea or Longborne as not only very real, but intimate friends?  If so, I hope you will plan on joining me for this exciting online party!
The pleasure of your charming company is requested to grace this event, inspired by the myriad captivating heroines of literature.  
Commencing on February the sixteenth {a special day, by the way!}, and extending to the end of the month, this event is one you will not want to miss!  
* As your hostess, I will provide a linky at the end of this post, which will be activated the morning of the 16thAll you must do is answer the questions below, making them your own with your unique personality and way with words.  Then, sign the guestbook at the end of this post in the form of the link to your blog post!
* Then, via the guestbook/link pool, have fun mingling, visiting each other's blogs and getting to know one another better!  Delightful, no?
The best part of this event is yet to come!  
I have just launched my newest entrepreneurial endeavor. . . namely, pin back and Mirror back button badges, now for sale at The Shop, as well as on my Etsy store!  
In celebration of this milestone, I will be hosting a scrumptious Giveaway!
You have the opportunity to win any one of the three following prizes!
First, Kellie Falconer Designs is offering a set of two adorable pin back buttons, which are the perfect accessory for the literary minded heroine.  Pinned to your sweater or book bag, these little badges will brighten your wardrobe and put a smile on your face!
Second, a cunning little button mirror with matching hand-sewn felt case by Kellie Falconer Designs is an essential accessory for the prepared heroine.  This charming, high-quality looking-glass will prove an indispensable aid for everything from personal touch-ups, entertaining a fractious child, or signaling rescue aircraft.  Don't miss out on a chance to win!
Third, my dear friend Tasha, of Day by Day, has graciously teamed up with me for this fabulous event by offering one of her gorgeous hand-crocheted laptop sleeves!  She is preparing to soon open an Etsy shop, where she plans to offer these darling cases, among other things.  Be sure to stay tuned for the grand opening of her shop!
A true heroine well knows the integral part beauty plays in our lives.  She knows how to incorporate it into everyday life in a thousand ways, thereby blessing those around her with the joy that such beauty brings.  
This lovely laptop computer sleeve, with its vibrant colors, expert craftsmanship, and delicious granny-square design, is the perfect accessory for your prized electronic.  Imagine the delight of keeping your computer in this lovely case, where it will be protected from scratches and dust - at the same time enhancing the beauty of your home!
