Cottage Charm Giveaway#2 - Cottage Garden

CONGRATULATIONS to Tammy at Brinkley Bungalow!! She is the winner of the Cottage Garden giveaway!!!

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm doing two giveaways for the 2nd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway (being hosted by Kim at The Twice Remembered Cottage - One Woman's Cottage Life). Click on her blog link (above or on my sidebar) to visit ALL of the blogs participating in this giveaway - the prizes are fantastic!! This is my giveaway #2 - the "Cottage Garden" collection...

I've come across some really cute items on my "junktiquing" and shopping trips lately, so the winner of the "Cottage Garden" giveaway will receive everything shown above, which includes...

... a little flowery pair of gardening gloves, a cottage bouquet set of 8 note cards/envelopes, a 14"x18" cottage placemat/doily/runner with embroidered lotus blossom type flowers...

...a 'Shady Gardens' book, a little garden block, two seed packets (Moonflower Vine and Nasturtium), and a little prism like the ones I hang in my windows to fill the room with rainbows (like this)...

You'll also receive this L.L. Bean standard sized pillow sham (shown folded up here). The first photo shows what it looks like on a pillow, but you will be receiving the sham only (no pillow). It's so cottage sweet, covered all over with the prettiest wildflowers!

And here's a photo that shows three of my prisms hanging from the valance in my living room window (actually, just a shameless excuse to post another photo of Spotty boy!).

To be entered into the drawing for this collection, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, or any future post up until the drawing date of May 31st. You do not have to have a blog to enter, but if your comment doesn't link back to a blog, be sure to leave an e-mail address so I can notify you if you win!

You can enter the "Cottage by the Sea" giveaway the same way - just by leaving a comment on that post or any other post through May 31st. After your comment, just put #1 for the Cottage by the Sea collection or #2 for the Cottage Garden collection. And if you want to be entered into both drawings, just put #1/#2 after your comment.

The more comments you leave between now and May 31st, the more chances you have to win, but just one comment per post please :)

Donna (who's hoping for some seriously good gardening weather soon!)
