Giveway Time {Cottage Charm Giveaway}


I am pleased to announce I am joining up with The Twice Remembered Cottage in the 5th annual Cottage Charm Giveaway.  This is a multi blog giveaway that runs from now till May 29th, 2011.  Run on over and check out all the participating blogs and enter to win at each one, at the moment there are 44 blogs and the list grows daily.  This is my second year participating, last year was so much fun I just had to do it again.  So now for my "Giveaway"...


A few closeups
A darling hand held mirror
Not vintage but lovely all the same.  A rose themed hand painted scene on canvas.


My giveaway would not be complete without something handmade by moi so I am including two pretty little tin ornaments.  I have many ornaments I sell locally and chose two that could be used on your Christmas tree and or anytime of the year.  I myself like to attach to a knob on a drawer or tie onto the bow on a package, so many places you could use these.

A sweet vintage inspired owl locket necklace. I bought two of these one for my winner and one for myself, and I wear mine often.

Cottage white cake plate (salad size) from Funky Vintage Lovely, I love the sundae cup as the base, so clever.  I found a glass dome that fits as though it was made for it. 

Also included is the vintage cream colored doily, a green wood item with handle (better picture above.  I am not quite sure what this is, my kids say its looks like a maraca but it is solid, kitchen item perhaps? ) Obtained from a local antique/consignment store. And lastly a pretty green vintage Avon floral milk glass perfume pitcher. 

Rules for Entering
I am offering you a few ways to enter, so you can enter once or up to four times.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry and if you do not have a blog (not needed to enter) please leave your email address in your comment so that I may reach you should you win. Because of high shipping costs, this giveaway is only available to residents of the United States and Canada.

1. Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite hobby is and why?
2. Become a new follower and leave me a comment telling me you are.  Of course if you already follow then leave me a comment telling me you already do.
3. Of all the items in my giveaway tell me what your favorite might be?
4. Blog this giveaway and link back telling me you have.

Winner will be announced May 29th, 2011

Thanks for playing...and good luck!


Edited on Friday 5/20 to add:
I have been informed by a couple of commenters that the green wood item I was questioning on what it was is in fact a vintage sock darner (for mending socks).  I had no idea and never would have guessed.  Thank you for clarifying that for me!

Lisa- What a sweet offering and I love the rose painting. The green thingy is a sock darner isn't it? Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

Linda said...

What a wonderful giveaway and so many goodies. I have just become your newest follower.

Willow said...

I love to make candles. I can make them any size and any fragrances. I use candles all over my home. They just make the house into an inviting home I think.

Willow said...

I love roses and the canvas is my favorite, but all the others are so pretty too. It was hard to choose.

Willow said...

I just put your givaway button on my blog.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Really lovely items, Lisa! I've got so many hobbies, but the one thing they have in common is that they are made, whether a craft project or a furniture redo, they involve creating.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

They are all great items, but I guess I can narrow it down to two. : ) The owl locket, which my daughter would love as she is into owls and the cake plate stand, which I love and would work so well with my new white dishes.

Debby said...

Hi Lisa. Thanks for signing up to follow me and entering my giveaway. I signed up to follow you as well. When I read your profile I saw alot of commons interests. I love to scrapbook and make mini books.
I was also glad to see someone else just to join the cottage charm giveaway.
Oh, I love the canvas and also that owl necklace, well everything, hah.

Sherry said...

I think my favorite item is the beautiful painting. It is really hard to choose because I love it all. Thanks for the chance to win.

I have many hobbies but at this moment, making quilt blocks is at the top of the list. I am doing four Block of the Month designs that require embroidery, such fun.

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Hi Lisa! What a super generous giveaway ~ I would love a chance to win!! Of course the rose painting is gorgeous, but I'm sooo loving that sweet cake pedestal with domed lid. I can just see my daughter's baby shoes tucked sweetly underneath!!

Favorite hobby ~ has to be cross-stitching. I love watching something come to life as I stitch! Right now I'm working on some wedding designs for a giveaway that I'll be doing for my Wedding Blog Party on June 10th! I'd love to have you join us ~ come read all about it!

I love the cake plate. It is so cute.

Susan said...

Hello Lisa,
The green thing is for "darning" socks (repairing) Once on a DIY show I saw a couple who collected these most were plain, My mom's is plain, and I also inherited my late MIL's which is also plain, but on that segment on DIY this couple had hundreds and many had painted images and scenery etc on them.

I believe sock darners have been around since the turn of last century, but I am no expert.

I am a follower and have been so for a long while.
Susan

Susan said...

My favorite hobby would be all paper crafts but mostly scrapbooking, card making and ATCs.

Thanks for this opportunity.
Susan

Susan said...

Lisa, my favorite items in your giveaway are the cake plate and cover, and the doily. BUT...I love it all!
Please come and see mine at #33.
Thanks for my 3 chances

Hello :) I've just signed on as your newest follower, and would love a chance to win your wonderful Cottage Giveaway :)

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

My favorite hobby is sewing; I love to "throw" fabrics together and see how it all comes out ~ when I create my pillows, I have an idea in my head, and then just go to work bringing that idea to life :)

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

I would have to say that my favorite item in your giveaway is the beautiful rose painting ~ I LOVE roses, and decorate my home in that theme.

Have a lovely weekend :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

FrouFrouBritches said...

My favorite hobby would be sewing. Why? Mainly because I love the finished product. It's not so much the process, but that I have something a little different that you can't go to the store and buy.

My favorite item would have to be the Cottage white cake plate. I love the vintage look of it and the design on the plate. The base is really unique and creative of using a sundae cup :). I also love the size of the glass dome :)I only ever see large ones.

I also love the vintage owl locket necklace, too cute.I'm starting to get really into owl jewelry now.

i like to write because writing is a way to paint a picture with the wonder of words. Words can tell you so much just by their sounds and meanings--it's a wonder we don't all just write to communicate!

I love talking to people and hearing their stories, and that is my favorite hobby. It is amazing what you can learn from your peers, elders and the younger generation. I like to chat with them because I think everyone likes to be heard, get their story out - it's amazing the strength that can come from others. It really gives you a refreshing perspective and is always changing!

Donna said...

My favorite hobby is in the garden, I love the rewards you get out of planting some pretty flowers....of course, in the winter, I love a good book.

....ooops! Forgot to tell why....well, I love to blog because it is my creative writing outlet! And I love to follow blogs because I find inspiration, new friends, new projects, etc. Scrapbooking because I love the creative process and to tell a story through pictures. And last, hiking because I've lost over 100 pounds in 2 years and I was almost in a wheelchair when I started. To think I can walk for miles still amazes me!

Marla Jones said...

Hi. Ok, well my favorite hobby was crocheting, but now I think it has to be sewing, because I can make so many things. I see things in magazines, and I say to myself, I can make that! I love repurposing old clothing. Right now I'm making a little quilt for my 5-year old with squares cut out of his little t-shirts he's outgrown. I can't stand to give/throw anything away! :)

Marla Jones said...

I'm following you!

I think out of all of the items, I like the cake stand/cloche the best. I guess I'm going through a glass and crystal phase.
