Coastline Contest


In honor of my blog's One Year Anniversary this month, I'd like to do a few giveaways.

The first of which is this personalized burlap table runner, by Grace of
Coastline.

Isn't it great?




Photos: Christan and Allegra



Grace is no stranger to creating great accessories with burlap. She is the creative mastermind behind the little burlap chalkboard tags I used in my Kitchen:







And check out these pillows she also makes:







So cottagey cute!



And she even has her own awesome version of the fish pillows I blogged about on Sunday...






And these little totes are so cool and versatile too...





The rules to this giveaway are simple.

Post this photo on your blog:

2. Link to this post on my blog: http://theletteredcottage.blogspot.com/2009/05/coastline-contest.html

3. In the same post, also link to Grace's Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7044601


4. Leave a comment on this post stating which letter you'd like Grace to add to the runner if you should be selected as the winner.


And that's it!


The giveaway will end on Thursday, May 7th at midnight. I will announce the winner on Friday.


Good luck! :-)

And to double your fun, Christan and Allegra are also having a Coastline giveaway this week. Make sure to stop by their blog to read more about Grace...there is a fantastic interview there right now:

Indigo Robe said...

Hey Layla,

I don't know how to do the link thing so I am ok with not being entered in the contest but I wanted to tell you that YOU inspired me to paint my kitchen cabinets black! If you get a chance, go to my website where I just posted photos. I have a ton to do yet : beadboard, the diningroom needs chair rail and picture frame moulding, etc. but the cabinets are done! I have some of the knobs on but the cup pulls I bought are not the right ones so I am taking them back and getting others.

Thanks for all your inspiration!!!

Margie

Mission Valley Nana said...
