I'm a little old-fashioned & giveaway winner announced.

These days, I tend to associate the mail box with bills, yet I still get a giddy joy every time I see something in the mail box. When I opened up the box last week, not only did that giddy joy return, but upon further inspection, I started to laugh out loud. As in LOL. My sister had sent me a telegram requesting my immediate return to America. I felt so Elizabeth Bennet for a moment. I did a little research and found out that there's a company in Australia, Telegram Stop, that sends out telegrams the old-fashioned way. All you do is type in your message, provide the addresses and voila, a couple of days later, your chosen receives an adorable message complete with stops.* Anywhoo, I contacted the company and they have agreed to give Lars readers a 10% discount on all telegrams. Wahoo! Just use the code LARSHOUSE at this site.

Go makes someone's day! I promise it works!

*Did you know that a "stop" was a way not to pay more for punctuation?! The more you know...

Super cool. My husband is at officer's training for the military & so we're separated for the next 3 months. A telegram would totally make his day. Thanks for the idea!

AW so cute! I've only received a telegram a few times when I was a kid and it was bad news. I much prefer this.
