January Giveaway.

Hi Blogger Friends:


I finally have my January giveaway item finished...Whew! and yay-whoo! You know how much I love bread boards and painting on them. I scrounged around through all my vintage lovelies to see if I had a fine looking breadboard to paint on but the only one I had was a short board that really didn't fit the bill I was looking for. So, what's a girl to do? Why pull out her handy dandy band saw and cut one out...of course. That's exactly what I did, I traced out a pattern on a piece of pine and cut out what I wanted.


I painted a spring design on this board. It's a design by Terrye French and I have taken a little license with it so it would fit on my board. I added a vintage cookie cutter, a rusty jingle bell, a prim tag and tied it all together with a strip of burlap. There is something about bunnies that speak spring to me. This gal looks like she is walking through a field of lavender, maybe collecting some bees for her bee keep. Of course she has invited her friend Sheep along. I just love this design which means you will probably be seeing a few more items with this sweet design painted on them. Ok, let's get to the business end of this giveaway. If you wish to participate in the giveaway please follow the rules below.


To qualify for this giveaway you must:

**be a follower of my blog

**be a US or Canadian resident

**leave a comment on this post

**If you do not have a blog please add your email addie to your post.

That's it. However, I would so appreciate if you blog about this giveaway, add to your blog sidebar and/or tweet or facebook. This giveaway ends 1/28/12 and a name will be drawn and posted on that date. Thanks to all who enter and good luck.

Til next time

I love all your prims and would love to win this one. Thanks for blogging I love to read your blog.
