A White Giveaway on White Wednesday!

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU ALL FOR ENTERING.

Finally, eh? I sat down and fiddled about with a gorgeous vintage tray cloth/ table centre, some lace, a sweet picture of a beautiful young girl printed on fabric, mother-of-pearl buttons and a couple of fabric flowers, and made a little pillow. Small enough to put on a shelf, dressing table, or to nestle amongst other, larger cushions. I do love little ones. I followed the shape of the tray cloth, so the pillow is a fat T-shape -


I added a string of fun pearls and a little wooden spool with some antique French lace -


a handful of mother-of-pearl buttons



and also a knotted faux pearl necklace ( shown in the last pic, on the left ). And there you have it, a white giveaway, which I hope you will like. I am so grateful to have so many people visiting my blog, which is just the kick up the butt I need to keep creating. Your comments always make me smile and spur me on.

Please leave a comment on this post only, if you would like to be entered into the draw. The giveaway will end on Wednesday, 22nd June, and I will draw a winner on Thursday 23rd. You don't have to jump through any hoops to enter, but of course it would be lovely if you would spread the word and put the giveaway button on your sidebar.

Good luck and toodlepip xxx

I am linking this post to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm, do have a look at all the other lovely whites.
