Cottage Charm Giveaway Day
Okay, so here's the thing. You know how I told you all about the amazing kitchen cabinet transformation done by Kim at One Woman's Cottage Life? Well, now she is organizing a super-awesome blogosphere-wide giveaway day. Cool, huh? A whole bunch of cottagey blogs are giving something away, all on the same day, May 26th. I've been trying to figure out what I should give away, and I finally figured it out. I bought this antique quilt on eBay last year on eBay. It's a beautiful quilt from the 1870's, hand pieced and hand quilted in chrome yellow and cinnamon pinks. It's somewhere in the 70" square area. You can see here it's folded in half on the foot of the bed. When I saw it, I just had to have it. So I splurged for my birthday and bought it. Unfortunately, however, there's nowhere safe in my house to display it. If I put it on a bed it'll get wrecked. If I hang it on the wall, it'll get wrecked (plus I'm not sure it would be good for it). And I don't want to just keep it in a box, which is where it has been since I bought it (except for taking these pictures). Someone who can both love it but also care for it reasonably well should have it. So I'm giving it to all of you. P.S. The giveaway is over. The winner was announced on Saturday, May 26th. Thank you for visiting!
