Cottage Charm Giveaway

I've been so inspired by bloggers and wish that I had something to give back. So I'm offering my first giveaway.



Kim at The Twice Remembered Cottage is hosting this lovely event. Visit her for a list of all the giveaway participants - there are some wonderful artists and generous people out there willing to share.



And don't forget to sign up here. I'll be adding a few more things to my giveaway package, but wanted to get started so here's what I'm offering so far
* a hand-embroidered crazy patch pillow to tuck on a bed, dresser, or chair
* a decorated bottle, great for a window sill or bathroom counter - tuck in a few flower stems or greenery
* a creamy Battenberg lace doily
* a tag with some trims for your own projects - bits of lace, ribbon and buttons

The winner will be drawn on May 31, so don't hesitate - sign up now. If you don't have a blog through which I can contact you, just leave an email address in the comment section.

Isn't it nice of Kim to organize this again? Thanks for entering mine, and please wish me luck on yours!

KJ said...

I'm having lunch with a Lorrie today, so I was pleasantly surprised when I realized I was meeting someone new!

I love your playful and sweet assemblage here! My mind is already toying with how I would use these items. And I know Karla through blogging and I am honored to follow her in this Giveaway!

Thanks, Lorrie, for dropping by my blog. I love getting a healthy dose of Canadian creativity, so feel free to visit often!

Best Blessings, KJ

Ooohh.. I will have to go over to Kim's and check the list, but I would love to win something made by you, dear blogging friend! Loved your shots of your gorgeous yard... I have all my herbs in pots on an iron baker's rack on my deck. I love to be able to step out my door and cut fresh herbs!!

By the way, you were spot on in a broad sense with your answer to my mystery picture.

Blessings,
Christi
