May Giveaway - Cottage Charm

A country cottage lifestyle is all about...


simple living
cozy surroundings
informal charm


And above all...it is a state of mind.

So I've decided to join in on a giveaway hosted by Kim at Twice Remembered Cottage.
Take the time to visit and enter all the giveaways sponsored by the other wonderful bloggers.


So what would be best to giveaway? I thought it should be big and beautiful.
How about something that shouts cottage charm?

A large antique ceiling tin! A gorgeous design with historical significance!



This large, white ceiling tin tile was dismantled from a bank in Indiana that dates back to the late 1800's/ early 1900’s. 


Tile measures a large 24” x 24”. As to be expected with any antique piece...expect lots of character. 


More available for sale in my Etsy shop. This is a $50 value!

Ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post for one entry.

3. Leave a comment on this post after you visit my Etsy Store and state which item you like best.
4. Be creative and promote this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter then leave a comment on this post.

Four chances to win! Pick and choose what works for you.
Shipping within the US and Canada only.


Giveaway starts here and now. Giveaway ends May 29 with the announcement of the winner.
Good luck to all!

Pick one thing from your Etsy shop?! Surely you jest! How can anyone pick their favorite from a shop filled with such wonderful things??

I suppose if I really had to choose, I really like the wooden tote. Then there's the basket and the hook and the galvanized....and on and on!
