It's A Giveaway!

A while back I asked my son for some of his artwork so I could incorporate it into a giveaway, and he delivered. He enjoys giving the things he makes and has given many pieces away. I have added a little something with each piece that I hoped you might enjoy. So here goes.

Three hand thrown pottery vases. Each one is different, and perfect for adding a little fall touch around the house. I will be giving them as 3 seperate items with a little something added.

With this little vase will be a copy of the book Vintage Treasures.
This one will have Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado.
Included with this one will be a copy of Decorating Junk Market Style with Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer.
Each one will also have a little surprise tucked in, to enjoy on those cool fall days. A favorite item at our house this time of year!

Here's all you have to do. Just leave me a comment on this post and you are entered once. Send a friend to comment and have her tell me that you sent her, and you are entered twice. I will be drawing next Tuesday. So how about, it I would love to hear from many of you and tell me what kind of handmade pottery you like.
     There are a BUNCH of Yard Sales here this weekend, so that is what I will be doing at least in the morning. There is even one that starts at 5:30 AM! Have you ever heard of such? and would you get up and go at that time of the morning? Hope you all have a wonderful Fall weekend! Jackie

I love the vases. You are right, they are different. But they compliment each other so well. The autumn colors go so well with htem. I'd love to see how they would look with some summer colors.

Oh, and thank you for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

Oh I hope I win. I went to Seagrove, NC and got some pretty pottery; it is dark blue and brown. It is gorgeous.

Diana said...

Ooohhhh, I love these. Count me in. I enjoyed my first visit.

Hop over sometime. I have a giveaway going that ends tomorrow by the way.

Christina said...

Amazing giveaway. What a generous son you have. I love homemade pottery. I just love to see someone's signature on the bottom and know that they put their time and talent into it. Doesn't matter to me if it is a famous pottery house, or someone who will be famous or the one and only piece someone has ever done. I like it all.

What a special, generous giveaway. What fun it would be to win a piece of your son's beautiful artwork, or any of the gifts. I think this is a great idea, sharing pieces that mean so much to you. Thank you!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. I have NEVER heard of a 5:30 start time for a garage sale {that's what we call 'em here in Minnesota}. That's crazy and no, I wouldn't get up and go at that time of day. I prefer to still be in bed then, thank you very much!
Great giveaway, I would love to be a winner!
Blessings,
Shana

The vases are beautiful and extra special since your son made them. I'm always so impressed with people that can do pottery like that! Thank you for having a little contest so we have a chance to own a piece.
