You know the saying............

"Better late than never".............

Well, I honestly thought I was too late for this:








But, when I went over to Kim's blog this afternoon, she says I am NOT too late!! Yayyyy! I am so happy, because I made something really special for this Giveaway............ just for you!




So, here is my giveaway..........


I am offering this sweet little handmade pillow


And a sweet book by Emilie Barnes,

Illustrated by Susan Rios~
















I made the little pillow from an embroidery pattern I downloaded a while ago from this wonderful blog:










I think it is so sweet of Floresita to share these transfers!


Anyway, I made the sweet birdie emboidery, then framed it with blue gingham,

you may notice I used mostly "baby-blue" for the pillow, in honor of sweet Grandbaby-boy, who will soon be making his appearance :-)








And, here is the back of the pillow......


including the insert which is removable...


the pillow is 12" X 12"











I am also including this sweet little hardcover book for you....I have one myself, and when I found this one at the thrift store last Summer, I just knew it would be perfect to give away to one of my "bloggy buddies"

It truly is a sweet little book- 64 pages-filled with the most wonderful illustrations

I treasure mine, and I think you will enjoy it








So, there you have it~ My Cottage Charm Giveaway.........

I hope you will leave a message here for me, or you can email me at:

Delia252@aol.com

and I will be happy to enter you into my drawing!

I will draw a name 11:30PM, tomorrow night, May 31st

It's just my little way of saying Thank You!

Good Luck!
