Christmas In July Giveaway!!


Hello Everyone!

It is time for another giveaway!!!

I absolutely love having giveaways.  I find them so much fun.

All of my giveaways are my way of saying Thank You to my followers.

Thank you for taking time to stop by and visit me.

Thank you for all your sweet comments. They always bring a smile to my face.

For my newest giveaway, I decided to give it a Christmas in July theme.

Primitive Christmas decoration all hand made by me.

Here is what the winner will receive.


One quilted mitten hanger with crow.

This was adapted from a Tennessee Ridge Primitives pattern.

See newer posts for some tweaking that has been done to crow mitten!!
Made from an antique quilt piece (both sides).  Topped with old cotton quilt batting and 3 old bells.

The hanger is made of old rusty wire. 

Inside the mitten is Spanish Moss, berry sprigs and a prim crow.

No glue was used, everything was hand or machine sewn.

The mitten has been tea stained for that prim appearance.

Here are some ideas of how it can be displayed.  Plus some close-up photos.







Also included in giveaway is two prim candy cane cupboard tucks. Made from vintage red and white ticking type fabric. Which has been tea stained for that prim appearance. Then accented with mica snow, stained cheese cloth, some drieds and an old bell.

These were adapted from a free pattern Char had on her blog awhile back.


These can also be displayed as bowl fillers…


Or even hung on pegs!


And lastly, winner will get 10 homespun wrapped candy canes.

These can be used as tree ornies or bowl fillers.

I display them as both during the Christmas season.


As for the RULES there are only a few…

(New followers are welcome to join in.)

#2) You must post a comment on This Blog Post stating you would like to be entered into the giveaway.

Giveaway Ends July 7th at 11:59 pm.
