~ GIVE - AWAY ~
I have to laugh at myself sometimes for my own internal optimism , as I type this, March 1st, we are expecting a snow fall tomorrow of about 6". lol. But, I refuse to give in!!....I picked my title for this post last week, when it was almost 60 degrees. "Signs of Spring", Oh well, lol, that's NY for ya. At least I can be true to the Give-Away part ( Smiles ) So, Grab a cup of Tea and come see what I've been up to :) I am so Thankful for such wonderful girls who come in for a visit and leave such sweet comments!! and I've been so busy getting my website together that I haven't had enough time to Thank you all individually, so I thought this would be a great way to Thank you. A Give-away!
Its' very simple. Just leave a comment, anyone can enter, if you don't have a blog, just leave me your email address in your comment and I'll be sure to contact you if your name is chosen. The gift you ask?? :) it's a choice of any wooden Sign below, just tell me your "favorite one" in your comment and when I pick a name, you'll win the one sign of your choice. At the end of this post there are two more signs to pick from also. That makes 5 to choose from girls! The "Pie" sign is also available right now on my Website for those who'd like to purchase one now...I am also giving away to the special winner, 2 Moda Home dairy fresh dish towels! scroll down to see...
If you do a post about my give-away, I will count your name 3 times as an extra Thank you... If you feature it on your side bar, that will be 2 chances ... The only twist is you have to use one of my pics here to tell about the give-away and link it back to here. Feel free to copy and paste any of the pics that have the signs on them. Included in the giveaway are the 2 dish towels below also! The signs you can chose from are: Bake, Pies, Pantry, and Cottage and Cupcakes ( Cottage and Cupcake are shown a few pics down the post ).
Well on to some other news... Gooseberry came out with a new cookbook!! yippee! Oh it's just so sweet! The recipes and ideas are fabulous in this one!
Gooseberry did a great job inspiring us with ideas for spring and summer outdoor picnic's , something I am so looking forward to and I'm sure you are too! It's just around the corner girls! despite the forecast this week, lol...
I wanted to say a special Thank you too to Jill at At Home in the Country ( aka: Hickory Hollow ), I won her give-away of the Susan Branch book and Victoria Magazine. I was so happy to get her goodies! Look how pretty it came to me, all wrapped in my favorite colors too... Thank you Jill, you are so sweet. Her Blog is simply gorgeous and her new home is filled with such beauty!
She enclosed this adorable card below too... I adore the detail on this card, it was so Cottage sweet , I am going to find a frame for it and add it to my kitchen wall collection!
I can never get enough of Susan Branch, as most of you know, she fills her books with such fabulous ideas and illustrations ! what talent !
I've been busy as a Bee working on my website and finding the perfect things to feature on it too. I have items coming from wonderful sources and I also plan on including some of my own hand made items too. This soap dish below was made using one of the beautiful embellishments from the French Garden House collection, and as soon as I listed it, it was gone. I wish I had a bunch of them, but some of the items will be "one of a kind" like the one below.
This Cottage Tea Box below is listed now on my website and features a Merlot Velvet interior, perfect for Tea, or even for jewelry or buttons, or anything you can dream up :)
This chippy shabby pink shelf was one of the other hand made items I posted and sold out the day it was posted, but I do plan on making a few more! Thank you so much to all who have visited Cynthia's Cottage Design.com , I am so happy you are finding items that you love! And Thank you too for all your imput and support on my line of cottage furniture coming up too! I am hoping to have that up and showing within the week!
Back to the give-away... Here are a few more pictures of the Signs to chose from...
If I could, I would send you all a gift!! Your support and encouragement through your friendship and comments has made blogging a wonderful adventure for me! I cannot Thank you all enough! I wish you all a wonderful week ahead. Filled with sunshine and blessings.... and lets hope for Spring to come right around the corner too!! The winner will be chosen a week from today, March 8 !
Till then , Friendship and Hugs !!
