Run......Don't Walk to this Give-Away

It's May and that means it's time for the 3rd Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway event!

This is a month long event (all drawings will be held on the same day - May 30th) and is a great way to discover new cottage, romantic,and vintage oriented blogs, as well as vendors and talented artists. This is an unbelievable event, hosted by Kim of Twice Remembered. At this moment there are 38 cottagey give-aways with the goal being 100. WOW! And you wont believe some of the fabulous items just waiting with your name on it. There is sooooo much cottage charm there. I have to keep my give-away in the USA this time because it’s heavy. Lurkers :) are welcome to sign up too; just don’t forget to leave an email address for me. No excuses now…..you have almost a half month to visit everyone. Leave a comment here and then Run…don’t walk over to Kim’s blog for the entire list.

For my part in this most amazing of events, I am giving away a nest….what else would The Vintage Nest give away :) ? I love nature’s gifts to us, especially her bird’s nests. I am always delighted when I find one and use them in my home and at Christmas time in the tree. This charming piece came out of one of my bluebird houses. The bluebirds always leave a note for me when they are through for the season letting me know I can do the house cleaning of the boxes. Isn’t that sweet of them? Your cottage charming nest will arrive displayed under a vintage heavy glass dome. The nest rest in a vintage blue willow dish and the sweet little mushroom bird sits on a vintage softly tinted blue faux pearl necklace. Only rules for this game: Have fun!





~~~~~ Over the last couple of weeks I have had some sweet chickadees tell me that were unable to leave a comment or their computers would freeze up. I have changed the way the comment form is loaded and I hope this helps. I am so sorry and apologize. Blame it on blogger. :) xo

Jennifer said...

Lynn, Please add me in the give away! I luv the nest!

You had asked me a couple of questions and I have been slow to reply this week. I am so sorry! I haven't had any problem with deer & other critters so far this season. Back in January we adopted an English Foxhound who had been rescued from a puppy mill. She has done a fabulous job keeping EVERYTHING chased away. She is so sweet to be all protective of our chickens and veggies. =) As for what to do with the hens when they quit laying, I hate to imagine! I wouldn't want to do away with my sweet pets either.

Have a beautiful week,
Jennifer

Oh Miss Lynn,
Leave it to you to give your adorable nest a hat (covering). Well, a cloche, but a sort of hat after all. I think of my home as a nest, and my cloche hat is the Holy Spirit, who covers my little nest very well. You always inspire me, and I am thankful to have your blog to run to at the end of a stressful day.
Blessings,
Theresa @ Cottage Violets
