Show Us Your Rescue Project ~ Giveaway #4


Are you ready for this?!!  It's Friday and I'm ready for a blog party, will you join me?  I've been planning this for a couple of weeks and am excited to share it with you! 

If you are regular reader then you know how many posts I've written that highlight DIY rescue projects, it's a passion of mine!


When we get into that rescue frame of mind, it encourages a new way of looking at things, it inspires us to repurpose, recycle, and reuse.  


After reading many of your inspirational rescue posts, I've discovered that a great many of you share my love of this.  So, you've inspired me to host a weekly blog party that will take place every Friday Night which I've appropriately named, the Rescue Crew Review.  

It will begin every Friday and run through Sunday.
  It will be your opportunity to strut your stuff, share your accomplishments and highlight a project that you're especially proud of!  It can be a something vintage that you have repurposed or recycled, or perhaps a room that you have madeover using recycled or repurposed objects.  Sharing is simple, just add your link using the Linky Tool at the bottom of this post....it's so easy!


The key words are Rescue, Re-use, Recycle, Re-purpose.  If your project can be described with those words, now's your chance to share it with us and encourage others to visit your post!  Then, on Monday morning, I will highlight some of the entries that I found to be exceptionally inspiring.  


Today marks the debut of this event, so please help me get the word out by grabbing and posting a button on your blog! 


The Rescue Crew Review begins right now and will end at 6pm on Sunday.  


Okie dokie...I don't want to make a bunch of rules, but instead I just ask for a few courtesies to make this fun for everyone (and less work for me!) :~)


1.  Post the link to the specific project, not just the link to your blog.
2. Please respect the theme "Rescue Crew Review", reuse, repurpose, and recycle.  
3. Share the Rescue Crew Review Button (you can find it on my sidebar) by posting it on your blog so others can participate!


But wait, *in my infomercial voice* as if this weren't enough fun, it's time for Giveaway #4 celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary of LaurieAnna's Vintage Home!


This weeks lucky winner will be picnicing in style with this cool item from the Shoppe.  

How fun is this wonderful wicker picnic basket?  I love the extra wide straps for ease in toting!
It has a great zippered cooler compartment for perishables or drinks.
Great divided compartments for food, napkins, wine, serviceware, whatever your lil heart desires!
These picnic baskets are very well constructed, great quality!
*Giveaway is for basket only

And it's the perfect giveaway for this time of year!



If you'd like a chance to win you need only be a follower and leave a comment!  That's it!  For my over achievers, (or those with a gambling spirit that like to increase the odds) post my button on your sidebar and shout it to the mountaintops!  That shouting will earn you 3 extra chances to win, so you will be entered 4 times!

I will announce the winner on Monday along with highlights from the Rescue Crew Review.


Alrighty...everyone buckled in?  Let's get this Review started!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I have added you to the lost of blog parties and become a follower!

FILIGREE MOON said...

Laurie Anna, you never cease to amaze with your talent and generosity! What a wonderful idea for sharing reuse projects. And that giveaway...WOWZA! Thank you for visiting my morning glory post and for your sweet comment. I have always planted morning glory seeds and had fabulous results. I have not planted an actual morning glory already seeded. Not sure if you've ever tried the seeds, but if you prick the seeds and soak them overnight, that supposedly speeds up the process. I like to combine my morning glories with moonflowers, which are large, white vining flowers that bloom in the evening. Hope to see you at Canton! ~ Angela
