happy Monday - my first giveaway!


Hi there and happy Monday morning to you.  

I've never had a giveaway on my blog before and today is the day!  

Remember all of those great vintage tablecloths I found on Saturday?

I would like to give this one away to a reader who would like it.  

I like the bright colors and cheerful flowers.  It would be fun on a kitchen table, on a picnic or displayed in some way.  

To enter the giveaway just leave a comment.  To make things a little more interesting, maybe just tell me how you think you'll use the tablecloth, something you like about my blog, how you found my blog or just something you're thankful for today.  

I will draw the winner on Thursday.  

All comments received through Wednesday will be entered in the drawing.  
You are eligible if you live in the U.S.  Also, please note that this is a vintage tablecloth.  There are some signs of use which I think show that it has been used and loved and given character.  It is in good condition and I would absolutely use it on my table but I don't want anyone expecting perfection and being disappointed.  :)  

Happy give away day!  Kelly

Yesterday was a wild day so I am just reading about your wonderful tableclothes. WOW! They are beautiful. Have a marvelous Monday and a wonderful week. (I know you like alliteration).

I love these old tablecloths! They remind me of my grandmother's table. How would I use this? for a tea party, of course....

Great giveaway!

I found your blog through Blue-Eyed Bride. I can't remember how I found her blog. Sometimes I wonder, "how did I get here?" Anyway, I love vintage tablecloths and don't often come across them at a reasonable price. All the stores I've found them at in South Florida price them way too high. Once my sister found me a strawberry one from someone selling by the side of the road in Alabama - that kind of thing never happens here!

The giveaway, if I were to win it, would either stay in it's original condition or I'd use it to make a tote bag or a dress for my 3 year old. But, it's a honor just to be nominated.

I would love to be entered for this give away! As horrible as it is to admit I have never used a tablecloth but am convinced it will spruce up and make my home look more lovely!

Mod Girl said...

Enter me please! The boys and I love to have picnics and this beauty would be perfect for our lunch time adventures.

We have a lovely sunroom and we have a table in there and I would probably use the tablecloth in there. It would go perfectly.

Della said...

Beautiful tablecloth! I would use it to bring beauty into everyday things...such as doing homework on a boring wood table:)

Kate said...

What a great giveaway! I found your blog through the helping mommys win blog. I think I would use this as it was intended...a tablecloth!

Hi Kelly! I found your blog and your giveaway through the "Helping Mommmies Win" blog and like a car with sensitive brakes, I stopped everything else that I was doing to come by, say hi, and enter your giveaway.

I would absolutely put that gorgeous table cloth on my dining table.

this is beautiful - love that it looks patriotic and tropial :)
Not sure how big it is, but it may work as a window treatment in my kitchen.

So glad I decided to check your blog tonight- just in the nick of time. I love vintage tablecloths and would love to have this one, obviously.

Oh, I'm late on this, but I wear leggings and half for the past two years. They are so comfy. I love wearing them under slightly short modish dresses. Sometimes I wear tights, which I love, but with the leggings I don't have to worry about some of the positions I end up in chasing my 3 yr old.
