The DIY Spot’s Very First Giveaway!

The DIY Spot’s Very First Giveaway!

Has it been a year? Yes, it surely has. It’s The DIY Spot’s first anniversary! I published my very first post May 22, 2009. It has been an unbelievable journey; a little overwhelming at times, but overall it has been a rewarding labor of love.

I started blogging to meet, share and dialog with others who share my love of DIY and creativity. Finding ones place in the blog land takes time and requires patience, continuous tweaking and, most important, listening to your heart. It’s an evolving process which would not be possible without your input and encouraging words. I truly appreciate your comments which help to shape, mold and perfect The DIY Spot into the creative playground I had envisioned. I hope you will continue to come out and play with me so that we can continue on this creative journey together.

In celebration of this milestone, I am offering my very first giveaway and linking this giveaway with the 4th Annual Cottage Giveaway over at Twice Remembered.

Now for the details about the giveaway items:

1. Three blue and creamy yellow tassles. The yellow color is in between yellow and cream and would work in a blue/yellow or blue/cream color scheme. They are rather substantial and have long tie backs that have a heavy twill or burlap like texture.

2. Two muted silver wire baskets

3. Six plaid napkin rings – blue and antique white close in color to the tassels and

4. Four blue and white ceramic finials (metal collar has a bushed silver metal finish)

Please note due to the postage expense, this giveaway is limited to those living within the United States.

Giveaway ends 12 pm on May 29 and a winner will be selected using If for any reason, I do not hear from the winner within 2 weeks, another winner will be selected.
