My Spring Giveaway!


Giveaway Closed
Happy Wednesday!
I am so happy to finally be sharing my extra special
Spring giveaway with all of you!

I've teamed up with the lovely Sheila at
to offer you a pair of her exquisite tea towels
available exclusively in her wonderful Etsy Shop.


 Aren't they divine?
Sheila calls this lovely creation her
Shabby Chic French Flour Sack Towel with Ruffle,
and it is even more beautiful up close and personal!

I actually own a pair of these same tea towels myself,
and I thought you'd like to see the creative way I use mine...


Yep, as a curtain for the back door in our kitchen!
It's just perfect there.

So, how can YOU win a pair of these pretties?
Simple.

1. Just leave a comment on this post.
2. Leave an extra comment if you are or become a follower.
3. Leave yet another comment if you grab the giveaway button, found on my sidebar.
4. And leave additional comments for blogging, facebooking or tweeting about it.


I will choose a winner 
Friday, April 20th.

Oh, and before I sign off,
I also want to share with you this photo
that my best friend and photographer extraordinaire
Thomas Adams shot of me a couple of weeks ago...


It's a bio photo shot to accompany
an upcoming article feature on me
in a magazine I'm not at liberty to divulge yet.
But many of y'all know the writer, and she has done
a WONDERFUL job on the piece.
Details coming soon!

Good Luck on the giveaway!!!!

Patty said...

Hi Anne, I first would like to offer my sincere sympathies upon the passing of your sweet uncle. I sniffled all the way through your post yesterday. It seems as though you share more than one trait with this treasured man. I pray your loving memories of him will comfort you now and in the coming days.

I tried to leave a message for you but the system would not give me a "Publish Your Comment" button at the bottom. I'm glad I have the opportunity to do so today.

Would love a new tea towel, thank you for the chance.

Were you shopping in Fredericksburg on Monday ? I thought I saw you go into a shop called Skye... something. I finally made it there with a friend who came to San Antonio from South Carolina. Went by Carol's place to ooh and ahh over everything !

Cute picture ! He did a great job !
