This week, I am having a giveaway in honor of all the wonderful blogging friends I have made in the last 2 1/2 years. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by for a visit and am also thankful for the kind comments.
Some of you may remember I bought this fabric to make an apron for my friend that got married last weekend.
My friend, Christina gave me the vintage lace for the pocket.
I actually made two aprons, so this one is for the giveaway! Also included...
Two burgundy kitchen towels. I had small strips of fabric leftover that I added to the bottom.
Two coffee mugs and dessert plates for you and a friend.
A butterfly notecard and envelope set.
Peony hand cream.
Garden Moment Getaways by Emily Barnes
Four Mammoth Sunflower packets that I made last week.
To enter the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment before Thursday August 21, 08 at 11:00pm EST. You don't have to have a blog to join in, just leave an email address, so I have a way of reaching you. Good luck and thank you for joining in!
