Cottage Charm Giveaway

Click here for the winner of my Cottage Charm Giveaway!

I have always wanted to have a giveaway and what better time than when Twice Remembered is holding Cottage Charm Giveaway?
I'm afraid that my giveaway is not very colorful, but I tried to stick with a neutral palette so that it would appeal to more of you.
Anyway, here she is:



First, there is this sweet little chalkboard. I ordered this from My Adobe Cottage on Etsy. (I was smart & ordered one for myself too! :-)



Next, I have this vintage milk glass bowl (I believe it was called a compote ). I have several of these myself in varying sizes and I just love them. That pretty little scalloped edge makes me smile. You could use this for anything really...a candle holder, a candy dish, or even put a bird's nest in it. I'm sure many of you have far better ideas for this than I do!



Next, I have this little white bird that I purchased at Michael's. It seems that birds are everywhere & with him being so versatile, I figured, why not give him away? (Of course, I bought one of these for myself. Are you noticing a pattern here? lol) Being that almost everyone loves cupcakes, why not add a cupcake bookmark and add some color to this giveaway? (Ok, ok, I do have one of these too but my daughter bought it for me and I thought it was so sweet of her!)



Finally, I ordered this way too fabulous pillow from The Pansy Cottage Garden for you. Now here is where I made a mistake...I did not order one for myself and upon opening the package, I could feel a whole lotta remorse and almost thought I wasn't going to be able to part with it. lol I knew what I had to do...post my blog giveaway immediately so that I can't keep it for myself. (oh how I suffer for my readers! lol)



So, there you have it--My Cottage Charm giveaway! That's all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on May 29th. (US & Canada only please) If you become a follower, add another post letting me know this, and I will gladly give you a second entry. It's as easy as that! If you get a chance, head on over to Twice Remembered and check out all the other awesome giveaways.

Have a great weekend!

Gina,

This is my first visit to your lovely blog via Twice Remembered but I'll be returning. I think the best think the best thing about the giveaway is discovering new blogs to read! The wonderful prizes are just icing on the cake. All of your items are wonderful but I especially like that pillow. If I win, I will send you pictures of it so you won't miss it much. HA!
