Twice Remembered Cottage 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway


It's that time of year again. Can't you just feel it in the air?
You know what I'm talking about....yard sales, flip flops, the smell of freshly cut grass. The kind of rain you don't have a problem with because you know it will clear up in an hour or two. An extraordinary amount of the color green. The 3rd Annual Cottage Cottage Charm Giveaway!



Kim, at the Twice Remembered Cottage, was the one who inspired me to start my blog last May, but since I had just started writing my blog around the end of her Cottage Charm giveaway last year, I didn't get to participate. This year, however, I'm offering up one of my Quote Jars, and one of my Good Jars to two lucky winners.






To sign up to win one of my jars, follow these two simple steps:

1. Leave me a comment on this post with the name of your blog. If you don't have a blog, just leave me any ol' comment. :-)


2. Mention my Cottage Charm giveaway in a blog post, and make sure to link back to this post AND
this post.

And that's it!
Good luck to everyone who enters.


The winners will be announced here, on May 31st.
Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go sign up for some other Cottage Charm goodies!

PS- If you'd like to contribute a goodie to the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway too, find out how to be a hostess
here.

aura said...

Hi, Layla! I know you love any sort of text or type on things around the house, so I wanted to tell you about a little box I found at a garage sale that I recently burned our wedding date into. I thought you would like something like it, if you're in the mood to be crafty. I used a wood burner I got at Michael's for $19.99 with my 40% off coupon and paid $2 for the box. http://aurajoon.blogspot.com/2009/05/garage-sale-box.html Here is a link to the after pictures.
