Inside Her Ladyship's Hat Box

It's time to have a look inside Her Ladyship's Hat Box and see what one of you might win today:



Just as I suspected: a hardcover edition of Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James, one of my favorite Pride and Prejudice continuation novels; What Jane Austen and Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool, a fascinating collection of facts about daily life in 19th-Century England; a lovely Bronte Sisters' blank journal waiting to be filled with all manner of personal thoughts; and a cheerful Keep Calm and Carry On bookmark to help avoid the panic of losing your place in your current read.

If you would like to win the lot, in comments to this post name something you'd like to see given away here at Disenchanted & Co. (or if you can't think of anything, toss your name in the magic hat box) by midnight EST on Friday, March 1st, 2013. I'll draw one name at random from everyone who participates and send the winner the books, the journal, the bookmark and a surprise. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet so all are welcome to join in.

  1. Probably too expensive, but an electronic gizmo you like using for your reading/writing pleasure, whether a Kindle, Dragon: Speech, or a tablet. But something you use....

  2. I may faint. Lizzie is my hero and Mr. Darcy is scrumptious (for the time, of course!). Pick me, oh magic hatbox!!!!!

    As for something to give away? Tisane, of course, a lovely fountain pen, and a pristine journal. China would be too difficult to ship

  4. Fabulous giveaway as usual, Lynn.

    I'd like the hat box, one of the pocket watches or even better a copy of Her Ladyship's Curse - thank you!

  5. Oscar Wilde. I think he'd fit in splendidly.

  6. I'd go back to one of the suggestions you blogged about before: be great fun to have a letter written by one of the characters in the book (not necessarily someone central, or revealing anything about the plot - but it'd be magical to have an artefact from that fictional world.)

  7. My favorites among your giveaways are those items you craft yourself. I would LOVE a piece of glitzy steampunk Victoriana.

  8. I think a steampunk fountain pen is a marvelous idea. -- LIV

  9. What a wonderful giveaway. A treat would be a small but cute decor item from that era.

  10. This series sounds really cool! Since it deals with an alternate War of Independence outcome, perhaps tea would be appropriate? Or something steampunk. :)

  11. I would love to see more of those bookloops, but done with keys or small watches or little fobs. (My gardening heart also keeps wondering what kinds of flowers grew in this land--were there additional pinks? I'm growing some heirloom British pinks this year to go with my ridiculous British roses.)

  12. Your handmade bags and a lovely scarf would be delightful.

  13. I am in LOVE with the watch in the background of this blog. Something like that would be a wonderful thing. Or anything handcrafted by you because you underestimate your talent though the rest of us know it for the brilliance it is.

    (and don't enter me, other than the bookmark, I have the other items)

  14. Tea would be a great idea. So would a nifty pocket watch/steampunk style item. A themed book loop is always good too.

    This giveaway is great as it is too! I can't wait for your book.

  17. I'm thinking a pair of bookends.

  18. Cool bookmarks are always fun, and there are about a zillion funny zombie fiction books that look interesting but I am too cheap to buy.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Steampunk inspired jewelry would be cool! Books are always a winning choice though. :)

  20. a china tea set with a tea sampler and biscuits. Yum!

  21. Oooooh, borrowing the bookend idea! I cannot have to many bookends.

  22. A set of Victorian aromatic oils. I'm not sure what would go in it but maybe lilacs, lavender, bergamot, roses?

  23. I would say some Victorian stationery and bookmarks. :0

  26. I wanted to pass this along to you and you don't have to post this comment if you don't want to, but look at the options for reuse here. This is from Two Nerdy History Girls:
