Merci Beaucoup and a Big Giveaway!



Bonjour!!

I know, it has been forever since I have posted!  I have been feeling bad about that...no real reason for my absence, just a busy life getting in the way :)  I'll admit, I have fallen into the habit of posting to my Instagram page daily, as it is just so much easier and faster than putting a post together...and in the process, my blog has been very neglected.  But, I have always loved this little space and all of the amazing, creative people I have "met" because of it...so, I wanted to have a giveaway to say THANK YOU.  I can't begin to tell you how very much I appreciate that all of you still keep up with me and what I'm doing, despite the fact that I post so infrequently!  Your support and kindness is such a source of joy in my life...so thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart!


I have selected some items from my SHOP to be included in the giveaway...

The vintage French bread board pictured above will be included in the giveaway, plus ~

A vintage French wooden spool with 10 yards of gorgeous, vintage velvet ribbon...




and,

An antique hemp, red striped grain sack, with monogram...




and,

Two full sized bars of homemade shea butter soap, in our signature lavender scent...




and,

A vintage blue striped, hemp tea towel...




Plus one more thing...a $100 gift certificate to my shop!


Here are the rules of the giveaway:

Giveaway open worldwide

You must leave a comment on this post to be entered

You can earn additional entries for the giveaway by posting the giveaway to your Blog, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter, just please leave a separate comment {on this post} for each entry

Contest ends Monday, March 17th at midnight

One winner will be drawn, at random.  Good Luck!!


Hope you all enjoy your week ~

Tracey


p.s.  I promise to try and post again soon :)

p.p.s.  Has anyone else noticed that when they post to their blog, that the photos become darker??  I've noticed it that last few times I have posted, but don't know why it is doing that...

Hi Tracey,

Such a gorgeous & generous giveaway ~ I'd love to have my name tossed in the hat. Thank you.

Also, I had noticed that my images were darker. I did some research, and when you save them as a .png (Portable Network Graphics format), they no longer display darker. Hope this helps.

xo,
Lin

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Lovely items, Tracey! I'd love to be entered for a chance to win. I have had less blog posts since this year started. I'm not sure if it is because I have a little more going on, I'm not motivated to do any projects or I just don't feel what I am doing is blog worthy. Or a combination of all three.

Karla @Art Whisper said...

I"d been thinking that perhaps something was going on in your world that you couldn't blog and I truly understand when that happens. I've been putting together my own blog but am a shy soul so I've yet to hit publish in fear I can't be consistent because of living with chronic pain daily. I've learned though that I love blogs like yours and I'm almost at the publishing point because I have so many things I want to share and don't want to keep them all to myself. Kindred souls indeed. You inspire, you know that?

Warm regards,
Karla
