~~A Little Blog Giveaway~~






I would just like to give a little something away as a way of saying THANK YOU for taking the time to stop by and pay a visit and or leave a comment.

It was fun to put this little assortment of goodies together and each one has a little meaning.....

A handmade black toile and ticking pocket pillow (made by yours truely) ~ to hold love notes, grocery lists, a treasured picture or your reading glasses....a little something to organize your things. (note: vintage crochet lace and lots of old buttons have been lovingly hand sewn onto this little pillow.)

Daydream sign ~ take time to dream of creating something lovely.

Egg tray ~ don't put all of your eggs in one basket.

English Tin with roses ~ take the time to smell the roses and breathe each day.

An old spoon ~ when you have a bad day, add some sugar to it and stir it up.

Spoon rest ~ for that sugar spoon!

Butter Pat by Maddock's Works ~ I just had to throw in something PINK for you PINK gals!

A pickle or shrimp fork ~ for that hard to reach pickle in the bottom of the jar, or to make life a little easier to get at the things that are hard to reach. Just don't use it on someone. (ouch!)

For the contest: Just leave me a comment but ONLY ON THIS POSTING and I will draw the name on September 21st and announce the winner then. If you don't have a blog account, you can email me via the profile section. And if you are wondering, international friends are included, too!! Smiles to you and have a lovely day!
