Nuthin' Like Waiting Until...

the Last Minute, is there? :)

I'm signing up for Kim's (of One Woman's Cottage Life) Cottage Charm Give Away Day! My first ever Blog-Related give away :)

I'll try to post the cute little icon thingie from Kim's site...but I may not Get 'Er Done...

Anyhoo...in my previous post, I stated I tried aligning myself with the Light Side of the Cottage Decorating Force...and failed so miserably....

So, here are a few things left over from my attempt that I'm now happy to pass along...along with a few other things...




You see: A vintage Needlepoint Pillow (the background is a minty aqua and the fringe is true pink), a tin with butterflies and flowers, a little chintz sugar pot (the lid has been mended and the gilt is shabby, but it is still great), 3 little molds, an unopened stamped cross stitch kit (that I've had for simply years and years), a jar of Braswell's Apple Pie Jam (made in the area & the only new thing in the lot :) ...thought ya'll might want some reassurances in that area...I was going to put my jar of Braswell's Fig and Ginger Preserves in the lot...but I'm such a Jam Freak that I couldn't bring myself to do that...but the Apple Pie Jam is wonderful...that was the first Braswell's I tried after stumbling across it at Byrd's Cookie Company) and Raffaella Barker's Hens Dancing...


(this pix is just here because I think it shows the colours of the pillow much better than the first photo)

I may stumble across something else that needs a new home & if I do, I'll post a pix :)

So, if you're interested in winning this motley lot, just leave a comment & I'll draw a name on May 26th...please have a valid e-mail addy so I can get a mailing address for the winner :)

*my e-mail addy is under my profile here on Life at Number 17


***I've unearthed a few more things I'll be post a pix of later this evening or in the morning...DS borrowed my DC so I'm DC-less :)

Thaks for dropping by my garden- those blue flowers are lobelia & the color came out really electric this time :)
I'd like to drop my name in the hat for your giveaway- I love everything you showed!
I enjoyed your comment about "aligning myself with the Light Side of the Cottage Decorating Force" which is my mantra of sorts- my house is newly-wed style (mismatched handmedowns & thrift store) although we'll be celebrating 19 yrs in Sept- & I keep ending up with brown, red, & blue.
