Ready, Set, Win!

It is Wednesday morning and, as promised, it is contest day.  The contest will start now and the winner will be chosen on Friday evening.  I need to give you all a few days to formulate your thoughts.  Yes, this is a contest but I am not just going to just give away two pillows!  No, you need to earn your butterfly pillows.  Don't worry, it is not going to be difficult, but, it is going to be pretty darn fun.  Okay, here are the rules, and remember, the winner will get two fantastic butterfly pillows:

1.  You must "like"  715 Pillows on Facebook (click here).  Without "liking" the page, you will be unable to submit your entry.  You might as well do it because there will be more fun contests from time to time!

2.  The contest opens Wednesday morning, October 26, 2011 and will close on Friday, October 28, 2011 at 5:00pm Eastern Time.  I will be getting my hair cut at 6:00, putting my kids to bed at 7:00, and will start judging at 8:00pm.

These two pillows could be your major award!
3.  Beside liking 715 Pillows on Facebook (click here) this is what you must do!  I will post a picture of the two lovely butterfly pillows on Facebook.  You, dear readers, will need to tell me why you should win the pillows in the comment section under the picture in the following way:
  • Find a really cool quote or song about pillows written, spoken, or sung by someone else
  • Write your own quote or song about pillows
  • Write a poem about pillows
  • Write a haiku about pillows
  • Or, just tell me why you think you should win 
Now, I am not trying to be difficult and I don't expect you all to write like William Blake. Chaucer, maybe; but not Blake.  Have fun with it, and please, please enter.  I think it will be lots of fun.  Make me laugh, make me cry, make me want to give you a two pillows!  And did I mention, this will be lots and lots of fun?

So, just so that you don't feel like you are doing all of the work, here is my own shot at a song and poem about pillows (even though I'm not eligible to win):

I'm A Little Pillow 
(sing to the tune of I'm A Little Tea Pot)
By:  Jenny Mlutkowski

I am little pillow, full and stout
Here is my stuffing, here is my fluff
When you are all comfortable here me shout
Flip me over, cool side up!

Pillows are cool
By: Jenny Mlutkowski

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Butterflies are sweet
And soft pillows are too!

Okay, so you get the point.  Be a little silly and have a little fun.  Now go on, like 715 Pillows on Facebook (click here), submit your entry, and win yourself or someone else two pillows!


  1. From the classic: "Planes, Trains, ans Automobiles"
    [waking up after sharing the same bed on the motel]
    Neal: Del... Why did you kiss my ear?
    Del: Why are you holding my hand?
    Neal: [frowns] Where's your other hand?
    Del: Between two pillows...
    Neal: Those aren't pillows!

    It's not a classy poem but I knew it would make you laugh,lol.

  2. That quote always puts a smile on my face!
