FAN-TASTIC GIVEAWAY!!! (or the REAL and the DESPERATE housewife's giveaway)

to celebrate my birthday today i decided to do a giveaway.  i am giving away my amazing, incredible,  one of a kind, divine purple suede cat heel shoes!!!  yes, you read it right.
i snatched this treasure several weeks ago at half-price in Goodwill for $2.50 (i am very puzzled by the fact that my local Goodwill has incredible amount of very nice genuine leather shoes in excellent condition...  just email me and specify your size, brand, color, style - and i'll find the right shoe for you there... just kidding). 
ok, back to my giveaway...  my feet grew 1/2 size with each pregnancy and that is a whole size added to my already quite large feet.  these shoes i am giving away are US size 8 1/2 and that is too small for me.   i can only walk in them 5 min max at a time.  someone suggested i have them stretched, but there is this nagging feeling i have...  i stay home with my kids and don't really go anywhere where i could really show off these beauties.  yes, i am the REAL and the DESPERATE (two in one) housewife!!!  (that is probably why i started this blog... but that is beside the point)...  i can not possibly bare the thought of these shoes sitting in the dark corner of my closet forgotten by the world.  i did consider displaying them in my china cabinet with all the other things i never use but chose to simply give them away to someone who will be able to wear them comfortably.  ok, i will shut up now... here is what you'll get if you hopefully win...  "Nina" brand genuine suede shoes (plummy purple) in US size 8 1/2.
2 1/2 inch heels have golden cat images.  these shoes are in very good used condition.  for more pictures click here and here.
for a chance to win this shoe please:

1. follow and/or subscribe to my blog

2. leave a comment under this post with either your email or blog address (any non-entry comments of shoe    praise and admiration are also welcome, just let me know somehow you are not participating in the giveaway)

3. check out my eBay shop georgiablueboutique- absolutely no obligation to purchase anything...  I am selling my old shoes that don't fit anymore, some NWT items and some accessories.  it's about time to clean up my closet!!!

... and here is what i am putting on eBay today (actually i'll add few more items tonight).  all things are either new or in very good used condition.  smoke-free pet-free home.

  8. I'm so glad I caught this before you picked winners! I LOVE those shoes. I would wear those all the time (since we all know I wear heels daily anyhow). They're a half size too big, but.... that's what pads are for.

    Gonna check out the ebay auctions - I'm a terrible addict.
    Good luck with the contest and selling!

  9. Aw, I'm sad you're not keeping them for future wear! I'm sure the new owner will love them.
