AUTUMN HOME Blog Giveaway Contest

Maybe it's the fact that it has dropped into the 40's during the evenings this past week... Or because some trees here in New England have already started to don their fall wardrobes of oranges, reds, and yellows....


...or maybe it's just that I love my blogging friends and giveaways so I was looking for any reason/excuse to have one!!!! But whatever the reason, I made a trek to The Christmas Tree Shop and picked up some goodies that I thought you might enjoy! Everything you see in the photo above (except for my white scalloped tray) is included in my AUTUMN HOME Blog Giveaway...


Starting at the top (and working our way down)... you'll receive this creamy white pumpkin (faux, so you can use it year after year!!) and this 6-1/2' garland of fall leaves (that I used to nest the pumpkin in)...


... a creamy white bucket that says HOME and has the sweetest bird graphic....


... two adorable little birdies...(Are they newlyweds and he's singing her a love song? Or are they an old married couple and she's rattling off a "honey do" list to him??) I'll let the winner decide!


This creamy white floral doily....


...and a 13"x18" tapestry placemat/runner....


Here's how to enter (and how to earn even more chances to win!)
1) Just leave a comment on this post (no blog necessary if you leave an e-mail)
2) All of my followers will be entered into this giveaway (leaving a comment will give you a second chance!) so if you are a follower, or become one before midnight, September 30th, you'll automatically be entered!
3) Anyone who grabs this Autumn Blog Giveaway icon and puts it on their blog with a link back to this particular post will be entered (just leave a comment letting me know!)
4) You'll also earn a chance to win if you decide to join in the Giveaway fun and host an Autumn themed giveaway of your own. Just e-mail me with a link to your giveaway post at yesteryrda@aol.com and I'll add it to this post. You can sign up right until midnight, September 30th, when the contest ends, but winners should be announced on your blogs October 1st.
Have fun everyone - and HAPPY AUTUMN!!!!
Donna

Stopped by and found inspiration I needed for a centerpiece! I am putting all giveaways in a drop down up near the top of my blog...just to see how it works. (I know that doesn't count, just in love with drop downs right now.)

Lovely items. I'm especially fond of the bucket. Have to go check the fall decorating inventory!

Claudia said...

Hello, my friend! What a generous giveaway. I love how you put An Enchanted Cottage on the side of the tray...have you thought of doing that for real? It would be awfully pretty!

Sign me up for this giveaway...I already am a follower and I will let you know when I put your button on the blog.

By the way, you might want to read today's post...I put something on there just for you.

Sammy Girl said...

Hello! Your inspiration got me to pull out my hatbox of "fall stuff" to toss around the house -- actually it will probably start on the usual places (table, mantle, etc) ... but often ends up elsewhere. To save time I should just toss it around to begin with, lol!
Hugs and have a super day!
Betty :)
