Help Me Celebrate 3 Years! ~ Blogiversary Giveaway!!~

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

WOW! Time has gotten away from me!

I just noticed that on the 21st it will have been 3 years since I started blogging.

I can hardly believe that!

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

It seriously feels like yesterday that I started this little blog of mine.

What a wonderful adventure it has been.

Blogging has introduced me to so many wonderful people, and I have made friendships that I hope last a lifetime.

I think back to when I would read my friend Linda's blog and decided one day to start my own.

So yes, I am very thankful to Linda,  if it wasn’t for her I may have never been introduced to the wonders of Blogland, and all the amazing people who live here. :)

Has it Really Been 3 Years???

Yep, it sure has!

So lets celebrate with a giveaway!

I have decided to giveaway one of my large vintage burlap pillows.

This is a large size pillow.
It measures approx. 22" wide by 16.5" tall.

(22” X 16 1/2”)

I used a vintage burlap feed sack for the front.
The burlap was cleaned before turning it in to pillow.
I lined the back side of the burlap so the stuffing does not show through.

Wonderful graphics on the front of the pillow.

Solid cotton fabric on back.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

No holes.
Perfect for any Farmhouse or Primitive Decor.

*And if your worried it may be too rustic for your inside decor, just remember Spring will be here before we know it and the pillow would also look great out on a porch.  :)

1) You must be a follower of my blog.

Sorry, but my giveaways are my way of saying Thank You to my followers.

*Yes, new followers are Welcome.

2) You must live in the USA or Canada.
