Cottage Charm Giveaway.




It's May, and that means that Kim at Twice Remembered is hosting her third annual Cottage Charm Giveaway. This is my third time to participate, too, and I'm excited! I especially like doing this giveaway because it coincides with my "blogiversary" (four years!) and also because I always find new and wonderful blogs to read when I visit all the participants.

May has been a weird month for me, with no car on a regular basis, so I decided to go "shopping" in my house and then supplement that with a walk to the thrift store. And I found some terrific stuff. This time I'm doing a "baking" theme, and here's what you'll win if I draw your name from the comments list:

-a vintage cookie cutter
-a bowl scraper from King Arthur Flour
-a stack of recipe cards with some of my favorite cookie and muffin recipes
-a sweet little vintage plate to serve your baked goodies on
-a hand-embroidered table runner to place the plate on
-a red toile tin to package some baked goodies in
-a set of four mise-en-place bowls to hold your ingredients while you bake
-a nifty push-up measuring cup, especially nice for measuring things like peanut butter, mayonnaise, honey, etc.
-some tea bags so you can sip while you snack
-an apple-pie scented Yankee candle in a pretty votive holder
-a bar of cinnamon-oatmeal soap from Ellie's Handmade Soap
-aaaaand, a lovely little cookbook with recipes and gift ideas for each of the four seasons.

Whew! If I find any more treasures between now and the end of the month, I'll add them, but this seems like plenty to start with.

The rules are simple: just leave a comment on this post between now and midnight on Saturday, May 30th. Please include your e-mail address if you don't have a blog or some way for me to contact you. I'll announce the winner on the 31st.

And definitely check out all the other giveaways listed here! You could win something really wonderful, and maybe find some new friends and inspiration, too.

When I saw that cookie cutter I almost cried! I didn't even look at the rest of the list because I do not enter if I can't use everything and I do not want to disallow myself from entering.

My grandmother used that exact same cutter with the odd red worn handle and all to make her biscuits. I can see her standing at her kitchen table cutting enough biscuits to feed the army of children and grandchildren she managed to produce. So I just want to win that cookie/biscuit cutter and display it in my kitchen.
