The Amazing Cottage Give-Away
The 4th Annual Cottage Charm Giveaway has now officially begun! This special, annual May event will last from now until May 29th, 2010 at midnight. This is a multi-blog, month long event beginning Saturday, May 1st where bloggers give away on their blogs items they feel exhibit "Cottage Charm". Anyone can join at any point in May before the 29th. On May 29th, all participating bloggers will announce their winners and post it to their blogs. An ongoing list of ALL the giveaways and participating bloggers is maintained by our fabulous hostess Kim at her fabulous blog, Twice Remembered during the entire month of May.
The list grows and grows the whole month of May as bloggers add their Cottage Charm Giveaway to their blogs. So you'll want to keep coming back!
My last post (which I hope you read :) was about some of the cottage flowers blooming now at The Vintage Nest so I thought a new book on flowers, by the good people at HarperCollins Practical Gardener, would be a great give-away and it's titled what else but: FLOWERS. You will love it whether you grow them or not.......it's fun to look at, with page after page of gorgeous colorful illustrations. It covers such things as Choosing and Buying Plants, Sowing and Planting, Care & Maintenance and gorgeous Planting Combinations as well as trouble shooting and lots more.
And to go along with that beautiful book I made a pretty bookmark featuring an antique bluebird postcard from my collection, actual dried flowers from my gardens and a little script saying from a vintage greeting card.
And near and dear to my heart, I am also including a real authentic bird's nest, collected from the grounds of our farmette. Bobby G. picks these up as he is cutting the grass and always presents them to me as a wonderful gift, which it is! This dear sweet perfectly made nest would be so sweet in a vignette or under a cloche.
According to the posted rules I am supposed to tell you how to enter this give-away. Well...i have no rules. Just leave a comment so I know you were here and if you are posting as anonymous you must leave me an email address so I can contact you if you win.

Now go follow and check out all the other wonderful give-aways right here. Oops.....I almost forgot. I guess you want to see what my give-away looks like huh?
