Giveaway Time!!!


A Primitive Place ~Tammy

Hi Everyone!

Well, I had planned on making a post showing off all tweaking and decorating I have been doing in my sewing room.

But today I’m a little rushed for time… so I will wait.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

I did want to pop on and post about my new giveaway!!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm almost to 300 posts!! WOW!!

(How did that happen?)

*This is post 299 to be exact! ;)

Also I am at 750 followers! Another reason to celebrate. :)

And today I thought of another reason….

In August I will turn 41 !!!!

It seems like just yesterday I was on here whining about getting ready to turn 40.  

Where did this year go???

So anyway…

In celebration of these 3 events, I'm am going to be giving away this pillow I just made.

First item to be finished up in my new room. :)

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

This is a large burlap pillow with solid white cotton backing.

It measures approx. 18.5” wide by 11.5” tall.

Hand painted primitive flag design on front.

With antique and vintage buttons used to represent stars.

great GW ideas for helping organize! Im gonna have to keep my eyes out for some of that stuff that i would just pass up... like the mug rack. I was gonna tell you one thing that I LOVE and used in my craft room is one of those sets of 3 jars with the lids on the rack? ya know the ones that open like candy jars kinda? anyways after some paint and distressing to the rack and lids they make for great bins to store ribbons and etc in to organize! I think there is a old post of a set of them on my craft room blog. LOVE your jar o buttons! :)
