Toile & Rooster Giveaway

toilegiveaway
Hi everyone! I thought I’d do a little giveaway this week – just a little thank you to all who read this blog.

I’ve included a piece of yellow toile material (which you don’t see very often), some red and black toile tissue paper (because people always ask me where to get it) and toile paper plates (8) and napkins.  I thought someone could do a cute tablescape with them if you participate in that party.
coasters
There are also six coasters which of course you don’t have to use as coasters. They would be pretty framed. The black and white “Bless this home and all who enter” is a plaque with a hanger.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. That's it. Everyone is invited to enter. This is a good time for all you that don't normally leave a comment to come out and say hi!

I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday morning.



P.S. I'm behind in answering emails so if you've sent me one in the last week or so, don't think I'm ignorning you!

I just found a sage green and white toile shade to go on a froggy lamp I had. I have been waitin' and waitin' for just this perfect match, (since I didn't really like the original shade on the lamp)and there it was in Goodwill for $1.99 a week ago.
even has little crystals on it.
whoop! :-) Love the toile too. Hugs to you.

The plates hanging on the fence are charming. My friends jokingly call me the "toile queen", so I love your give away items.
