Bingo Anyone?! and A Giveaway!


Remember these babies?  The cool balls my family refers to as my creepy eyeballs or bingo balls!  Well I love them and they are a great conversation piece even if you do think they look like bingo or lottery balls!


So speaking of the lottery, while I was out shopping the other day I found two packages of these wonderful little balls.  Mine came from several different places, most of them came via Coldwater Creek on clearance, yippee!  And a few I bought as singles which was a lot less economical, but I wanted a full bowl, along with each of our birth dates and initials.


The balls I found are not the alphabet ones, they are the numeric ones.  There are 20 cute little numbered balls in each package.


They are also a little different size than the thrifty ones I have.  They are not as big as the largest balls pictured and not as small as the smallest ones shown here.  They are somewhere in between.


On the package they call them Porcelain Numeric Orbs, doesn't that sound much more elegant and decorative than Bingo Balls?!


So when I saw these, and their great price, I thought of you all.  I thought that I would give these cool little black and white balls to 2 lucky winners!    I think I have enough orbs in my life so I thought I'd share some orb love!  Each winner will receive a package of 20 porcelain numeric orbs!

Rules (Don't you just hate rules? But sometimes you just gotta have 'em!)

1.  To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite number between 1 and 20!

  32. Hi Kat,
    thanks for your lovely comment on my kitchen. I'm thinking of doing a giveaway soon which may involve a Welsh love spoon and have just left a comment on my blog explaining what they are.
