I’ll be emailing you’all; please respond promptly!
It has been a while since I had a giveaway on the site but the wait is worth it. Truly!
To celebrate Lost in Stockholm reaching 5,000 comments and 2,000 Facebook fans, I’m having an giveaway. It’s so cool that this little blog of a one woman show, me, has received 5,000 comments in 4.5 years.
Yipee! And thank you readers!
To celebrate, I wanted to showcase local Swedish businesses. The grand prize is being generously donated by Happy Hedgehog in Borlänge, in northern Sweden. The runner up prize has been donated by Fika Town, a greeting card company in Stockholm.
Happy Hedgehog is a lovely boutique that sells chic styled bags, cards, teacups, lotions, and candles. Their mission is to bring Sweden and the UK with adorable products that you never knew you needed.

The HH grand prize is open to people with a valid Swedish mailing address only.
Now, that the rest of you are sad because you don’t live in Sweden, never fear, I have another surprise. Fika Town has donated eight greeting cards for you to use and spread the love of fika and thanks.
The greeting card prize is available to anyone outside of Sweden. Yay!
Here are THE RULES:
1. Be a Facebook fan of Lost in Stockholm.**
2. Be a Facebook fan of Happy Hedgehog.
3. Have a valid address in Sweden for the HH grand prize. Have a valid anywhere in the world (where there is not an US or Swedish embargo) for the runner up prize.
4. Write a comment on THIS blog post relating to hedgehogs and Sweden. The comment can be long, short, haiku, poem, sentence, story, whatever. It just has to be unique and yours only. You can write in Swedish or English.
HH & Sapphire will pick a winner based on cuteness, funniness, and overall Swedishness on March 20th, 2012.
Winners will be notified by email on or after March 22nd. Please provide a valid email address in your comment information. Failure to respond within seven days forfeits the prize.
