A Giveaway For You!

***UPDATE

The winner of my Cottage Charm Giveaway is...
Christine!!! Of Christine's Home and Travel Adventures.

It's funny, I have known Christine in the blogging world for nearly 3 years and she was comment #1.
I have never drawn comment #1 before and I actually read someone's comment stating the fact that #1 never wins. So this is for all the #1 commenters out there! It does happen!

Congratulations Christine!








I'm joining The Twice Remembered Cottage for the 5th Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway!

A giveaway event lasting through the month of May, there are lots of fantastic giveaways to win.



Here is my giveaway offering!



A canvas "Junk Queen" tote embellished by yours truly. Just the thing to haul some recently purchased junk to your sweet cottage home!



An altered scrabble tile "COTTAGE" quote. 
This is a fun little piece that can fit pretty much anywhere in your home.



Finally, you can win this set of "pearls" for your very own. Every Queen of the Cottage needs her own pearls, right?! This strand can be worn as one long necklace or double looped around your neck.

The rules...just few little ones~

1. Leave me a comment

2. Mention the word "COTTAGE" somewhere in your comment. It's just a way for me to make sure you are interested in my giveaway and would want to win it. If it's not your cup of tea I don't want you to get stuck with something there's no way on Earth you would EVER want! Hee hee!

3. Make sure there is a way for me to reach you if you win, a blog or an email address. If you don't care to leave your email in the comments, you can find MY email on my sidebar. You also don't need to be in the US to win, I will ship overseas. I will announce the winner on May 30th!

Good Luck and make sure you check out the other giveaways, there are some seriously AWESOME ones being offered up!

Such pretty giveaway items, Sares! I'm slowly bringing some cottage feel into my own home. Even though we are on the market, but we are hoping to downsize to something more cottage-y.

As you know, I faithfully read your blog, despite hardly ever leaving comments. Your cottage blog giveaway, however, sparked my interest and I just couldn't resist being part of the fun...who doesn't love winning some lovely treasures?! The tote would come in handy during our shopping adventures. I am a huge fan of Scrabble and the necklace, well...it has a cowgirl vintage vibe. XO
