Pfaltzgraff Holiday Dinnerware Giveaway!

I love it when companies contact me and want to give something away to my readers! It's my way of giving back to you! I was really excited when Pfaltzgraff contacted me again with a second giveaway for my readers! This giveaway is for Pfaltzgraff Holiday Dinnerware!
The winner of this giveaway will win a choice of a 4 person dinnerware set in either the Winterberry, Evergreen Ernie or Woodland Collection which are pictured here!
I was looking around their website as I was putting together this post and they have some really cute things! On their page call "Staying Warm" they have the cutest snack sets, they would be perfect for soup & sandwiches, or chili and cornbread, or soup and salad! Oh, I really want some of those! The Providence pattern is my favorite!

Okay, I got a little side-tracked... to enter the drawing for the Holiday dinnerware, just leave a comment here by Sunday, November 15 at midnight (PST) and let me know which pattern of these 3 you like best! Due to shipping costs this drawing is only open to U.S. residents. The winner will be chosen on Monday, November 16th!

Do it yourself CHIC Giveaway!

Do it yourself Chic sells beautiful appliques that can be added to so many things! I've used them a lot around my home...
Above is a little caddy box that I found at the thrift store a couple years ago. It was cute when I found it but it was really dirty and needed to be painted, but before I painted it I simply glued on this applique from Do it yourself CHIC and it added so much charm!
I also used one of their appliques on the headboard that I found free on Cragslist! What a difference that made!!!

Do it yourself CHIC contacted me and they would like to give one of you a $50 gift certificate! To enter this giveaway you just have to go visit their website and have a look around and then come back here and leave a comment before midnight on Saturday October 10th and tell me what applique is your favorite...just a general description is fine! I will randomly pick a winner and announce it on Sunday, October 11th! If you don't have a blog please be sure to leave your email address on your comment! Click here to visit their website.
Updated: Congratulations to Debbie Bell (no blog) ~ She won the gift certificate!

Pansy Cottage & Garden

Sharon from Pansy Cottage & Garden recently sent me an adorable apron and asked if I would be willing to do a product review for her! I must say that this is one of the best perks of blogging...getting all these wonderful free items to review. Just to be clear though, I'm really honest with my product reviews...I'm not going to say something is wonderful if it's not! With that said... this apron is AMAZING!!!!
I literally gasped when I pulled it out of the package! The fabric is not only cute but it's so soft! I hung it up in my kitchen and I kept feeling it as I walked by it! Lauren loved it much so that she agreed to be my model for these photos!
Sharon also sells some other wonderful things too. Look at these cute pillows! There are also tea cozies and more!
Click here to visit Pansy Cottage & Garden and see all the adorable things! These aprons would be wonderful gifts!
Update: Sharon also has a blog! Click here.
BTW: That's a virgin strawberry daiquiri...I don't let my daughter drink alcoholic beverages. lol

I'm a single mom with a 28 year old son & 22 year old daughter. I love gardening, decorating, knitting, cooking, and drawing. I dream of having my own little cottage someday but for now I'm just happy turning my rental apartment into a warm and inviting space on a single mom's budget. Because I work full time, I don't have time to respond to all the comments you leave but I try to at least answer all my emails...that's if they don't end up in my SPAM folder by mistake!
