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!
