Blog birthday giveaway


This giveaway is closed
- it was drawn on 4 December 2010

My blog is 1 today!!
Let's have a party - the best kind of party - one where you get the gifts ;)

Just leave a comment and tell me WHICH SET you would prefer -

the French set with the French style 'burlap' cushions and shopping bag

OR
the Vintage set with the faded (but not quite as faded as they look in the picture!) tapestry style cushions and vintage mail



Drawn on Saturday 4 December (by the way, you must be a Follower to enter)
Draw procedure: A few of you haven't made a choice of which set you prefer (and I didn't make it clear either that I would do 2 draws, one for each set). SO I'm going to copy Marit's draw procedure, those of you who have indicated which set you prefer will each get 2 chances in the draw for that set, those who haven't indicated a preference will get 1 chance in each draw. (this postscript added 23 Nov)



Credit: The French 'burlap' style cushions are miniature versions of a 1:1 design by Michelle at Petite Coterie. Michelle generously gave me permission to reproduce her design in miniature (personal use only). Michelle has a link to her Etsy shop on her blog, be sure to drop by and take a look, she's got some gorgeous new designs.

Marion said...

Norma, congrats with your 1st year of blogging, and what a great blog it is. Glad you've come to life again for a few months. :-) Nice to get away from your books (been there, done that. LOL) As for your giveaway, surprise me should I win.... I can't choose although I tend to lean towards vintage because of the letters, but the other cushions are also veeeeery beautiful. Had a look a the site. Very inspirational.

Mini hugs
Marion

Tempted as I am by those beautiful vintage letters, the French Set calls to me more especially as I've just been researching using some tea stain coloured fabric with script on it for a mini project I'm gestating and they would go very nicely...

I love your giveaways! I am drooling over them! I love them both, but the second set fits better with my Victorian doll home.

Has this ever happened to you?

Marit said...

Hi Norma, Happy Blog Birthday!!!
You said that you are going to draw following my method of two bowls and two papers. I would hope so, both sets are so nice! If I really need to express a preference, I think I go for the vintage set...or the french... no, vintage... or... no, vintage. But rather let luck decide!

Marit
