It’s time once again for The Twice Remembered Cottage Charm Giveaway! What is that you may ask? It’s a multi-blog, month long event beginning Saturday, May 1st where bloggers give away on their blogs items they feel exhibit “Cottage Charm”. Anyone can join at any point in May before the 29th. On May 29th, all participating bloggers will announce their winners and post it to their blogs. An ongoing list of ALL the giveaways and participating bloggers is maintained at Twice Remembered during the entire month of May. The list grows and grows the whole month of May as bloggers add their Cottage Charm Giveaway to their blogs. All the winners will be drawn on the same day: May 29th. You do NOT have to have a blog to join in the fun, just an email address. You do NOT have to host a giveaway to participate.

Here’s a chance to win three separate giveaways (you can enter all three).

For my first giveaway, here is a sweet cottage grouping consisting of a miniature framed print, matching journal and ceramic birds. To enter this drawing all you need to do is leave a comment on this post.

Cottage Grouping

Second, to those of you that subscribe to e-mail updates from my blog (upper right hand column), you will be entered in another drawing for Mrs. Dunwoody’s Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping: Timeless Wisdom and Practical Advice by Miriam Lukken. Also included is a beautiful bibbed apron. If you already subscribe, you will automatically be entered.  You can also enter this drawing by adding me to your blogroll. Be sure to let me know by leaving a comment on this post.

Apron and Book

Finally, if you add my button (or already have my button) you will be entered in another drawing for this stunning display case. It is made of wood and glass. I am also including a nest with blue eggs. Leave a comment on this post telling me you have my button on your blog.

Display Case

Let the fun begin!

    Hi Deborah!
    What a fun, fun idea!
    I think I will have to play along.
    I love your give away and especially the apron and book- I love to cook- I have been doing that Mastering the Art of French Cooking once a week, and it’s been eye-opening, and palete-pleasing and hip-enhancing!
    I signed up to receive your email, and I put your lovely button on my blogs- so enter me, please?
    Thank you for the beautiful giveaways picked out just for us!
    Blessings to you!
    ~Leslie
    P.S. The little bunny at the top of this post is so very precious- I love rabbits!

  15. Alaina May 2, 2010 at 8:34 am #

  32. Laura Ingalls Gunn May 3, 2010 at 9:11 am #

    I am taking myself out of the running as I just won one of your fabulous giveaways.
    But thank you ever so much for the reminder. This will be the 3rd Cottage Charm giveaway that I will participate in. I always tend to join up mid May when the hustle and bustle of school is over.
    I am wracking my brain to try and remember where I first learned of Mrs. Dunwoody’s book. I think I first heard of it in Sarah Ban Breathnach’s “Simple Abundance”.
    On any note, it is fabulous.
    Beautiful prizes all.

    Hi Deborah. You had already commented on my checkerboard floor post, but thanks for commenting again anyway. :) We have decided that we are going to paint the checkerboard pattern. I think it will turn out good, but I am a little nervous, as I have never painted patterns before. Hopefully it turns out alright. We will be getting started in there next week. The last couple of weeks, we’ve been working on finishing up the flooring in the bedrooms, and now we are done. So next week is the laundry room. Wish us luck!! :)
    Wow! It sure is looking beautiful in your neck of the woods. We planted some kwanzan cherry trees in our front yard a couple of months ago, but when the flowers opened up they were white and didn’t look like kwanzan cherry blossoms. Hopefully they will change as the trees get bigger, cause I love kwanzan cherry blossoms.
    Thanks for inviting me to your giveaway!! Hope you have a great day! Beth.
