Birthday Giveaway Five!-CLOSED

What can I say.
I am still loving my Reliable orange iron that I received for my orange sewing studio a few years ago.
Really. Ironing is a necessary evil, especially if you sew, it might as well be pretty, no?!
And it works really well, too, which just makes it that much better ;) Never spits or leaks, which is more than I can say for my children.
I get to give away TWO irons!  Yes!!  Even if your iron works just fine, you want this one.  Because it's cute.  Enter by leaving a comment (with your email address if it's not linked to your profile) and I'll announce winners on Monday!

  2. Oh, it is very cute! I would love a pretty iron because you are right, ironing is a necessary evil!

  3. I love the iron. It would add a great pop of color to my sewing room. The "Never spits or leaks, which is more than I can say for my children." line makes me laugh. I hear you. I only have two, but they can create some serious messes. Thanks! Happy Birthday. kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  4. I feel like an iron that cute might whistle at me while I work, like the Brad Pitt of irons...if BP would ever whistle at me, which is doubtful. But, you know what I mean. Nice iron.

  112. I definitely need one of these lovelies in my life! I'm so tired of trying to track down our iron when I'm sewing and my husband has stolen it to press his shirts. Wait nevermind, should I be complaining that my husband does his own ironing?!

  113. That would be so wonderful! I have one of the most horrible irons in the world.
    And it's new. But terrible.
    So terrible that a friend came over to work on a project, and she asked to use my iron, and
    then she said WOW this is a terrible iron. She couldn't even lie about it.
