~ Giveaway Announcement ~ Woo Hoo!!

Good Monday Morning to all my Blogging Friends! Today is the day I announce the details of my Very First Giveaway! Woo Hoo !! For this giveaway you will receive BOTH items I have pictured. One of my pretty little hanging Pillows, and a sweet little decorative candle, all made by little 'o me :) The Giveaway starts TODAY and will go until June 18th. The winner will be drawn & announced sometime on June 19th. Good Luck Everyone!!




First, the pillow...it features a sweet Image reproduced onto fabric of a lovely Southern Lady all dressed in her pink and frilly finery. Fabrics chosen are Waverly's "Candy Stripe" for the body and a pretty Mary Rose print of tossed pink roses for the flirty ruffle ~ Embellished with rose lace that I have inserted with vintage pink Double-faced ribbon, and a sweet bouquet of pink and white roses with little pink fluers, with another pink vintage ribbon making up the sweet bow. Measurements, including the ruffle are: 9 3/4" wide x 12 1/2" tall.



The back has more of Waverly's Candy Stripe, and has been layered over with a gorgeous piece of Vintage Linen with a wonderful embroidered rose. The hanger is made with the sweet ruffle print.



Next is one of my pretty decorative candles....this one is a very soft pale pink and has been decorated with a reproduced French label from The Graphics Fairy (thier link is on my sidebar), which has beautiful pink roses, and the words: Savon Dulcifie...Rose. The candle has been wrapped in Ivory tulle, and embellished with wonderful various pink roses, a pink & white dotted ribbon, and a bow of Vintage Double-Faced pink ribbon. Please note that this candle is for decorative purposes only...all embellishments are glued into place. The candle is about 3" tall.



And now How to be Entered:

First Entry....Become a Follower of my Blog. If you are already one of my sweet followers, then you are already entered :)
