Celebrating With a GIVEAWAY!

THE TIME TO ENTER IS NOW UP! 

Winners will be announced 5/30/09.  Thanks to all who stopped by and entered.  :)

 

Edited on 5/28/09 to add:

Since there is still  a little more time before I draw the winners of my giveaway, and one of my giveaway prizes is a lamp, I’m participating in The Nester’s Lampapalooza event.  If you love lamps of all shapes and sizes, click on the button below to see all the other participants in this event.

Girlfriends, are you ready for a PARTY?!

It seems it is quite customary in Blogland to have a giveaway on milestone posts or blog anniversaries but before I had even hit the “publish” button on my first post, I knew I wanted to have a giveaway almost immediately to celebrate my new blog!

And since I had already decided on a giveaway, I thought it would be fun  to participate in the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway which is being hosted by Kim at Twice Remembered. 

After you sign up for my giveaway, don’t forget to pop over to Kim’s  blog to see the entire list (and links) of all the other bloggers who are holding giveaways too. New giveaways are being added daily through May 29th so this should be quite a spectacular event!  While you are there, you might even decide you want to be a giveaway hostess too.

So what am I giving away to celebrate this momentous occasion, you ask?

Because I’m really, REALLY, REALLY excited about finally making the decision to blog, I’ve decided to have THREE giveaway prizes/gifts.

#1:  For all you blue & white lovers out there, I’m giving away this brand new ceramic accent lamp.  It’s approximately 16 inches high.  Do you think  you can find a place in your home  for this little cutie?

#2:  And for those of you who don’t use blue  in your home, maybe you’d  like this Yankee Candle plate and jar candle topper.  Just look at the variety of  pretty colors.  There is a little blue in it but it also has spring green, pinks, corals, lavenders and yellows!   And this isn’t the small size, ladies.  Oh no, no, no!  It’s the large size to fit the larger jar candles.  (It will fit any brand of jar candle … not just Yankee Candle jars.)

#3:  Now of course, I can’t forget my pink and shabby lovin’ sisters!  Just for you I have found a vintage, ceramic planter styled like an old-fashioned telephone.  It’s adorned with light and dark pink roses and greenery.  I think it would be adorable with a little English ivy planted in it but since ya’ll are much more gifted than I am when it comes to growing things, I’m sure you can come up with other ideas of what to plant in it.  Perhaps you really creative souls can think of another use besides a planter.  ???

In addition, I am including this Bavarian plate which is hand-painted with little pink flowers, green cascading ribbon and a touch of black accents.  So cute!

IMG_1873

 

The “rules” are simple.  All you have to do is leave me a comment on this giveaway post telling me which prize you’d like to win.  Can’t decide?  No problem!  Tell me to enter you in one, two or ALL THREE drawings! 

If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to enter and I hope you’ll also tell all of  your blog-reading friends.  Non-bloggers, please don’t forget to leave me an email address so I can notify you if you win.

Unfortunately, due to the size and weight of these items, I will have to restrict this giveaway to those residing in the United States. 

You have until  Midnight (Eastern Time) on Friday, May 29, 2009  to enter.

The THREE giveaway winners will be announced Saturday,  May 30, 2009.

Good luck!

What a generous giveaway! Your blog is very pretty, by the way. If I were to win I would like either the candle set -- because I only have a Christmas set and I need one for this time of the year -- or the last prize, because I love those old planters and that german plate is beautiful!
