I'm Having a Giveaway!

I'm joining in the fun with the Cottage Charm Giveaway, a creation of One Woman's Cottage Life blog. Go visit between now and May 29 to enter all the participating blog's giveaways! There are photos on the blog of all the goodies you can enter to win!



Are you ready? Here's what I'll be giving away:


I absolutely LOVE this place mat and napkin set, which are new, and feature a natural look of linen with the words for the different meals of the day (including "supper" and "tea") in a great font around the outside edges. They were made in England! You will receive 2 each of the napkin and the placemat - just enough for you and a special friend to share a lovely meal!

Do you love antique china as much as I do? You will also receive this beautiful antique Myott Staffordshire, England china plate in a gorgeous pattern; it had gorgeous colors of plum, pink, and orange, with green accents and an absolutely lovely raised pattern around the edges.

I thought the china plate would look stunning displayed with this handmade pillow from my Etsy shop in this antique fabric, trimmed as always with some of my antique laces and buttons.

Please note: if you prefer, upon winning you may choose an alternate pillow from my Etsy shop, Twice Shy Restored, as long as the pillow is priced at or below $18 (and, as of this writing, there are seven (7) pillows at that price!)

How to enter: Please enter by commenting on this post only and, if your blog link doesn't show up in your comment, please include your email address so that I have a way to reach you if you win!

I love making new blog friends so if you like what you see, please come back and visit and/or add your name as a follower!

I will choose a winner using a random method on May 30, 2009 and will post the winner on this blog!

Good luck and be sure to click on the Cottage Charm Giveaway icon to visit all the other giveaways! Enjoy all the fun!
