A Birthday Giveaway!

Guess what? Today is MY birthday! So in honor of my birthday I would love to have a giveaway!

I would love to give someone a French burlap pillow cover. This pillow cover is made by ME. It is burlap, with a vintage tea stained French post card applique.

I have this and other burlap pillow covers for sale on my website at Lavender Hill Studio. To enter my birthday giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. I will pick a winner via a random drawing on Thanksgiving Day.
Welcome Home,
Penny

Happy Birthday Penny! My husband's birthday was yesterday also. What a lovely autumn day to have a birthday!

I am a new reader, and this is my first comment ever on a blog. Your home is beautiful, and if I ever get to redo our master bathroom, I would choose all the details you already did!

I wish you the best of luck in your new home, I know you and your husband will make it very warm and inviting, just as you are!

I am going shopping now at your shop. I plan to pick out MY Christmas gift from Lavender Hill! I might just choose one of those beautiful pillows!

Hope you had a great one! J.C.
