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.

  2. 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

  3. 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
