4th Day of Christmas Blog Giveaway
It's a White Christmas


This blog giveaway has been so much fun for me, I hope it is for you too! It gives me an opportunity to thank all of you for supporting us! We need to do this more often, so I've decided that we will do this at least once a week in 2010! Sound good?!

Okay, on with today's giveaway.....this is officially my favorite thing in the store...no bones about it, my absolute favorite!! My grandmother always told me that when you give something you truly love yourself, it's the perfect gift. So......here goes! My perfect gift to you.....our gauzy, dreamy, smocked, white bed throw!

I use the term "bed throw" loosely, because they are so much more! I just can't say enough about these gems! You can use them as bed spreads, as bed skirts, as tablecloths, as drapes, as shower curtains, as chair ties. The fabric is whimsical and romantic, and they stretch far enough to waterski behind them! They are the perfect decorating accent for literally any room in the house! And, get this.....they are washable!!! Can you believe it? These too are available online! I am in the midst of redoing a guest bedroom with these romantic throws!

In this photo, I took 4 bed throws and two curtain rods, to create the bed canopy. I covered the bed in one as a spread, used another as a dust ruffle. And, if that wasn't enough, I created our own pillow design from this miracle fabric! Don't ya just love it?!!

So, let the comments fly and let's give this puppy away! And, since this is the weekend, we'll let this giveaway ride through Sunday night to give everyone a chance to find it! I'll announce the winner Monday morning....when I will offer the 5th giveaway! We're not even half way there yet!

Til then, I have to scoot - gotta get the store opened up in just a bit!

xoxo

Beautiful! I'd love it, and with it being such a miracle fabric, you know what I'd love more...I'd love to see how it packed up and went with my 16 y.o. girl to Togo in February. Wouldn't it be quite the testimonial to see how it survived?!

Jacque said...

Well....since you are going to let this one ride for 2 days, I am going to make 2 comments. I looked at this item online to get a better idea as to what it exactly looks like. It reminds me of something I have seen before but still can't comprehend how it would stretch that big. Anyway, I need a new bedspread...so, enter me again! Please.

Thanks for the opportunity to enter such a great giveaway.

Hello - What a gorgeous Christmas giveaway. Isn't it awesome how you can take vintage items and put them together to make a room such a cozy and comfy place to be. I would love to be the recipient. My daughter (BellaDella), who has a blog would probably try to sneak it out of the house:)

Merry Christmas,
