100th post and my very FIRST giveaway!

Hello there!  Well the last 2 posts were total "cheaters".  I did absolutely NOTHING remotely crafty today, but was so ready to get to my 100th post and GIVEAWAY!

So, here it is!  One lucky winner will receive coastal accessories made LOVINGLY by yours truly!


A beautiful shell topiary with your choice of Tiffany Blue or Satin Gray Ribbon!  This piece looks great elevated on a pillar holder!

AND





A bag of my "ratty" jute balls!

I will send a mixture of Medium Brown, Natural & Med Brown/Nat mix as pictured above.  These are a versatile decorating item.  Use them as vase filler or piled in a bowl, etc.   I used them as vase filler for a table centerpiece...




The winner will be drawn at random at 10:00 am on Monday morning.

All you have to do to enter is FOLLOW MY BLOG and leave a comment below!

Want a 2nd entry?  BLOG ABOUT THIS GIVEAWAY and leave another comment here saying you did!

I will be contacting the winner via email, so please make sure I have access to your email on your profile, or you can leave your email address in your comment.

GOOD LUCK!

Beachy crafts — love them! I came to you via Maya @ Completely Coastal, she always finds the best blogs.

I have signed up to follow you, but don't enter me in your giveaway. As a lifelong beach gal, I have a ton of shells and I want someone else to experience how wonderful it is to bring the shore in their home.

I've read back a few posts and love all your ideas — framing the scrapbook paper is genius and I plan to visit and get more ideas from you real soon.

Congrats on you 100th post!

NicNacManiac said...
