Cottage Charm Giveaway!



Give me a day to get my stuff grouped... but I want to participate in the Cottage Charm Giveaway... I'm sure it will be fun and charm-y.... I have to thnk a bit, go to my shop, and take a picture. If you wish to participate in the drawing, just leave a post on this or any blog from today on to the 31st of May... If you leave a message on more than one entry, you'll be entered more than once...one per post..... Have a beautiful weekend.... sunshine and warm breezes... Can it get any prettier?


UPDATE-- Monday, May 20th
Well, boo to me.. I haven't taken that shot of the prizes yet, so I'll just list them without the photo for now and get the ball rolling. 1. A Scrumptious candle from Shady Peanut Lane,probably in a Vanilla Bun scent... It looks like a giant cinnamon roll, and it's a Muffin Gem... you will love it... Next, a tin of tea from "My Cup of Tea" which is a shop next door... Not sure which flavor, but you will love the little tagalong tin of silk tea bags, too... Next a few notes and some little candles and bath baubles, a vintagey tea towel with a big yellow tulip and rickrack.... and a few odds and ends to round out the prize... A Perfect Potful pack of gourmet coffee..... It will be fun to win... and even "funner" to take a picture of when I get to the shop go buy the tea and get the candle..... I can't believe how hectic the end of school always is... Book orders, grades, inventory, cleaning and stashing of the room... (a crazy lady does that every year, and then in August I wonder who she was... but I know it is the same woman who used to stash my holiday stuff.) Then today I'm actually done with all that but required to be here in my little bare kinda scary room until the picnic at 1:30 at the Coach's house... My dish for the picnic is rather cute... I bought fruit, made a cranberry/pecan fruit dip, and then have little Teddy Grahams... I took gummy lifesavers and made little swimmers out of the Teddy Grahams... so cute. I have my camera but not my cord, but I'll try to include a picture of that later, too.... My room is a mess; my life isn't the best right now; and I just had the most inordinately joyful nirvana experience stuffing those little bears down into those gummy lifesavers... Hmmm.... that is rather scary, don't you think?

Hi Gayla!

Even without the photos, your Giveaway sounds wonderful! Please include me!

I teach but in a Performing Arts studio. At this point, we are getting ready for our major shows, so I won't be in a stashing mode for awhile. About mid-July maybe...

I always like to say, "It came to pass, it didn't come to stay."

Best Blessings, KJ
