Winter Cottage Giveaway...

I realized it has been a year (almost to the day) since I hosted a giveaway, so when I received a 20% off coupon for The Christmas Tree Shop last week, Amanda and I headed over to see what we could find...


Being from New England, I thought it would be fun to offer a Winter Cottage giveaway.


So I found a sparkly little cottage ornament, complete with smoke coming out of the chimney.


And a glittery red bottlebrush tree to match the cottage roof.


And every winter cottage should be surrounded by birch trees, cardinals...


... and snow that glistens like a million little diamonds when the light hits it just right.


I thought this little Winter Cottage vignette looked nice displayed on this red, green, and tan woven placemat (white tray not included). This is a very simple (and not at all costly) giveaway. Anybody who lives near a Christmas Tree Shop can attest to that! But if you would like a chance to win it, just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner after midnight of Friday, November 26th! I'm sharing these goodies I found on Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home, so be sure to stop over and see what everyone else is sharing this week!! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
COMMENT UPDATE: I've had a few queries - yes, this contest is open to everyone, even those outside of the States. Thanks for asking!

Everything is so adorable! Cardinals have always been my favorite birds, so I love that 'snowbirds' piece. And I adore the cardboard house 'putz' cottage ornament. Please put me in your giveaway.

You have a lovely blog. I laughed reading about your cat and the shutters in the prior post. I love animals also. I love your Ms Giz. I love shabby chic also. Come visit my blog I just finished a shabby chic mini house. I would love to win the giveaways items. I am following you now. I am an avid reader as well. I like the book review area on your blog. I guess I am going to have to read the Lorax.

I just found your blog from a Pinterest pin and I will be visiting your blog from now on. I love your style!

Being from Ohio, I have always loved Cardinals and Snow. Now that I live in Florida, I do enjoy Cardinals in my yard, but not the snow.

Please enter me in your give away. It would bring back great memories of Ohio in the Winter.
