My 200th Post Giveaway!!!!

Well, here it is, another milestone met.

After a little over 2 years I have now reached my 200th post.

And to celebrate the occasion, I have decided to have a giveaway!!!

There are only a few simple rules to enter.

#1~ You Must be a follower of my blog.

My giveaways are my way of thanking my followers.

Yes, new followers are welcome to join in.

#2~ You must live in the USA or Canada.

Sorry, but international shipping is just too expensive.

#3~ You must leave a comment on This Blog Post, stating you would like to be entered.

~And that’s it~!!

For a Second Entry…

You may post about my giveaway on your blog or sidebar, but it is Not mandatory to enter.

Just be sure to let me know if you do post about the giveaway, so I can throw your name in twice.

Here is what you have a chance to win!!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

This primitive pillow was handmade by me.

I used two different types of antique pillow ticking for the sides.

Sewn to front is a square of Osnaburg fabric.

Then sewn to the top of that is a piece of burlap.

Printed onto the burlap is Abe Lincoln.

The backing is done in new blue homespun fabric.

The pillow measures approx. 12.5” wide by 8” tall.

It has been tea stained for the grubby aged appearance.

Something I want to point out…

When tea staining, the red ticking portion of the pillow did bleed some.

You will notice the sides of the  Osnaburg, have a reddish cast to it from the red ticking below.

I don't think this looks bad, just adds to the prim grubby appearance, IMO.

But I did want to point it out to all of you beforehand.

Here are some additional pictures of the pillow.

Until Next Time….

Take Care Everyone!!
