~COTTAGE CHIC GIVE-A-WAY and Loving Romantic Decor More Than Ever~

~IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING SWEET~


I'm lovin' pink roses and all things romantic more than ever! There were moments during the latter half of last year when I wondered if the time had come for me to move away from the soft fluffy blooms and gentle cotton fabrics I have come to love for so many years...

But, no matter how many OTHER pretties catch my eye, I've come to the conclusion that nothing will ever surpass my love for the tattered simplicity of comfortable cottage decor. Vintage laces and aging china plates continue to draw me close to the heart of all things lovely and timeless...

I'm always creating new things for my home and I suppose I will never stop! Because I sew and paint I'm often asked what I love more~

In a way that is like asking me if I love my son more than my daughter... My children are a part of me as are my creations. Both are equally loved. It's just at different times I'm drawn more to one than the other, and for different reasons. And, like my now grown-up babes, working with both needle and brush will always bring immeasurable joy into my life!

In honor of my of one year Blogiversary (January 1st) as well as the fact I'm quickly closing in on my 300th Post, I'm having another Give-A-Way.

The romantic little Picture Frame you see above (or one painted just like it...I have several!) will be given away to one special blogger! The Frame is painted a soft sugary pink(not peach) and comes graced with hand painted pink roses and dainty little rosebuds. It is made of wood, comes with a glass front and is lined with vintage pink Damask. It holds a 4" x 6" photo and comes signed and date by Moi. :) No Cash Value.

Want to win this Cottage Chic Beauty?

Here's what you have to do.

1. Leave a comment on this POST! :)

2. To get a second chance to win the Frame you must POST about this Give-A-Way and LINK back to me!

3. For a third chance to win add my Button to your Blog with a LINK back to mine.

So...you have three chances to win! If you opt to do #2 or #3 you MUST let me know you have done this so I can include your name two more times into the random drawing.

The DRAWING for the PICTURE FRAME will be January 31st. Deadline to enter is January 30th @ 11:59pm CST. Winner will be announced February 1st.

Thank you for playing along!

Warmest Blessings on this cold winter day...Rebecca
