GIVEAWAY !!!


GIVEAWAY !!!

In celebration of my 100th post today - Yoo Hoo! - I am having a giveaway.

The giveaway is the ladle above which is vintage silver.  It has a tiny bed of moss containing a nest with three tiny pearls in it.  It is trimmed with vintage lace and crinkled seam binding at the top.  It has a wire hanger on the back.


This is the bowl of the silver ladle showing more detail of the nest with pearls.

But, wait, that's not all!

I made my dear friend Brenda at  http://www.cozylittlehouse.com a new runner for her fireplace mantel for her birthday (which isn't until February, but I'm going to go ahead and give it to her since she will see it here anyway).

I will make you one customized to what size you need.  I can make it up to 72" long.  So, you can decide if you want it for your mantel or a tablerunner, OK?

  
It is made out of a red and white cotton polka dotted print with tassels on each end.
 

The tassel is precious (even if I did make it myself LOL).  It is made out of scraps of torn red and white prints and has red and white buttons glued on some of the ends.
 

So, how do you win these two prizes?

SIMPLE !!

Just leave a comment below.  You may enter a comment each and every day for one week on this post!!  And knowing me, there will probably be a extra little gift or two in your package.  I will have your runner made within two days of receiving your measurements so you can have it for Valentine's Day.

Winner will be announced next Wednesday, 1-16-2012.

Enjoy!

Till next time, Judy

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Judy, you are beyond talented, and that is so cute!!! Both the laddle, and the runner. I love them both, how cheery.

Since this is really only our second winter up here, it's hard to tell how much snow we would get. But I do remember my Dad telling me 3 years ago that they got a accumulated amount of over 7 feet that winter. And we get more here, then where they live.

It's pretty lovely until March...then it's go away already!
