2nd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway

I'm joining Kim at The Twice Remembered Cottage - One Woman's Cottage Life for her 2nd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway. Be sure to check out the list of all the participants - there are 35 and growing. I thought it would be a fun way to meet some new people and maybe I'll win some cottage treasures for my home. The lovely items you see in the picture above are the treasures I'm giving away on May 31st. The gorgeous porch pillow is made from vintage barkcloth, trimmed in fringe from a vintage chenille spread, and stuffed with a squishy down and feather insert - perfect for any cottage decor! This romantic pillow was made by eBay Seller Judith Ann Cottage Designs whose pillows have been featured in Romantic Homes Magazine. I purchased it a couple of years ago and am now passing it on for someone else to enjoy.


You'll also receive a bottle of my very own Rustic Cottage Lavender Linen Spray and a bar of my Cottage Rose soap. The linen spray is scented with pure lavender essential oil and can also be used as a body spray. The Cottage Rose soap is one of my best sellers; it smells so good and comes with pink rose petals pressed on the top.





I will hold the drawing for these lovely items on May 31st at 6 PM. All you have to do to enter is visit my Etsy Shoppe and then come back here to leave a comment by midnight on May 30th and tell me which soap in my shoppe is your favorite! If you'd like to mention the giveaway on your blog and link back to mine that would be nice too! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog (click the link at the top of this post) and see all the other lovely giveaway entries. Have fun and good luck!

karlascottage.typepad.com said...

Oh my, that is a hard choice, the rustic Clothesline sounds wonderful, though! Very cottagey.

Elizabeth said...

Just visited your etsy shop! I really like how you describe what each different scent or ingredient does. I am a big fan of olive oil soaps and oatmeal soaps, but have never seen them combined.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

I love this pillow! I'm a huge fan of lavender linen spray in general and would love to win yours! I also love the look of your rose soap, I didn't see that in your etsy shop but that would be my favorite. I love anything with lavender so a lavender soap would be really nice too!

I'm also joining in on the Cottage Charm Giveaway so please enter mine if you haven't already!

Crshelpmeet said...

What a lovely blogsite!!
I stopped in to look. The Cottage Rose Soap reminds me of something you would see in a fairy tale. The lady in waiting pulls the rose laden bar from a laced lined hanky and gives it to the princess for her bath. Simply lovely! Thanks so much for doing the giveaway. I'm going to say...."Cottage Rose" would be my choice...(I love a good fairytale:) )I'll definitly be making a stop into your etsy!:)

If I could only choose one, I guess it would be the cottage rose but each of them seem to be something very special and good for the skin. I have never bought such special soaps but they really do seem worth the cost.
