Christmas Pillow Giveaway, Day 3
Before we get to the giveaway for today, I have to share some news: I have been given the "Amazing Blogger" award by a new, but dear friend, Rhondi from Rose Colored Glasses. Rhondi has an absolutely lovely home and is a stunningly talented quilter, so you should stop by and see her. Thank you, Rhondi, you completely made my day. I'm speechless! :-) There are so many bloggers I'd like to pass this award onto, like everyone in my blogroll! But to keep it simple, I am going to limit myself to four of the blogs that amaze me every day with their gorgeous homes, impeccable style, generosity of spirit to the blog world and delightful ability to post nearly every day: Cindy from My Romantic HomeKim from Dear Daisy CottageTracey from A Cottage IndustryTina from Cherry Hill Cottage Also, I am supposed to share seven things about myself--I've done that at the end of the post. Okay, back to the giveaway. We're now kicking off Day 3, of the Great Christmas Pillow Giveaway, 2007! :-) I can't tell you how much joy it is giving me to share these pillows and hear everyone's holiday thoughts! I love it!
For Day 2, the French-inspired stripe pillow (pictured at right) with extra linen cover goes to.....drumroll..... Andrea from Big Creek Cottage! Yay! And now, to the next pillow to give away.
The pillow I'm giving away today is a simple pillow of camel cotton duck with a multi-tonal red fringe. It's not a flashy pillow, but it's a great supporting player. The cover is removable, as with all of the pillows, is washable, also as with all the pillows, and comes with a feather insert (if you are allergic or prefer not to have feather, I will send a poly insert instead). This pillow would be great for someone with a couch that has more pattern, as a supporting member of a cast of pillows, or for someone who wants to embellish the front with a design of their own. To win this pillow, comment on this post until tomorrow evening, when I will close comments and draw a winner. Then the next pillow will be posted right after that! Good luck everyone, and thank you, thank you so much, again, for participating! It's making my holidays even more fun than usual! :-) P.S. Here's those seven things about myself to share with my Amazing Blogger award. 1. I've tried many times to choose to focus my attention on either my home or my garden. I can't do it! I love them both! :-) 2. I pretty much can't pass up any opportunity to buy: fabric, linens, dishes, crystal, flowers / flowering plants, or anything with chippy paint. 3. I almost always have more ideas than time. ALWAYS. My husband keeps telling me I am going to have to accept the fact that I have more ideas for projects than I could ever finish in an entire lifetime. I am not sure I am ready to admit that, yet. (Yet!) 4. I am never without opinions. EVER. If you ever want someone to give you an opinion (an honest one) about your home or garden, ask me. I will tell you. 5. I know I've mentioned this before, but I am in constant awe at the supreme level of amazing talent there is in this bloggy world! 6. I have a hard time noticing the beauty that's already there. I'll be discussing this further when I do my New Years Resolutions post! :-) 7. I really want to change careers and become a combination interior decorator and garden designer. And maybe write some books along the way. Is that too big of a dream? P.P.S. I'm sorry, the giveaway is over and this pillow was given to Cory from My World, by CJ! You can see the giveaway introduction and and winners at Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5 and the final day. Merry Christmas!
