Giveaway #2 .... Countdown To Christmas

It's time.... actually it's pass time for giveaway #2, on our countdown for Christmas Giveaways. So sorry that I'm running late with the giveaway but with Canton last weekend, and we went out of town this past weekend, it put me quite a bit behind. It was a wonderful weekend though, lots of great friends, shopping, wonderful food & wine, dancing under the stars, breakfast in our rooms every morning, just doesn't get much better than that. But now back to reality I have so much to do now that I'm back home, the contractor will be coming soon to start on my kitchen, so that means a lot of work for me.... I will have to pack up a lot of things and get out of the kitchen, I also have things to add to my website, new things to make in my studio, and all of the other daily things that go on, and tomorrow is my mine and my husbands 20th anniversary, we had big plans but afraid they will have to be put off for a little while . I'm quite over whelmed with it all, but can't wait to have my new kitchen! So lets get on with the giveaway!!!

I'm offering another one of my small lace purses. I say small but it has quite a bit of room. It's large enough to carry all of your essentials, and has one nice size interior pocket!


So you know the routine, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment here and be a follower. If your already a follower just let me know. This will get you 1 chance.

If you post about the giveaway, let me know for another chance.

Grab our button and link back to the giveaway for yet another chance.

Giveaway will end on 10-31-11

GOOD LUCK!!!

I wanted to thank everyone for your sweet comments on my last two post. I didn't get a chance to stop by and visit because things have been very hectic around here lately, and I only see them getting more hectic for a while longer, but I will be by to visit and soon as I can!

Cindy Craine said...

OMG it's perfect... for me and it has pink! Were you at Round Top this year? It was so hot I found myself walking in circles and a lot of the dealers are not real helpful about guiding you to other dealers. I am going to Canton in November if it kills me so if I missed you in RT maybe I can find you in Canton!

So, pick me. I'm a walking billboard my backside these days since I didn't work out much this summer!!! Plus I'm a Magnolia Pearl girl, how perfect would this be with my new Pearl. Pleassssssssssse. I'm not above begging heheh, xoxo-cindy
