100 follower giveaway!

Hi girls,  I can't believe I have reached the 100 follower mark! I want to tell you all how much I love being able to connect with you through my blog.. being able to share my thoughts and talk about my passions with same minded women from everywhere in the world, it's just amazing! I also want to say a big THANK YOU to all my followers and readers, I truly appreciate each and every one of you!
So to celebrate I am having my very first giveaway. I thought I would make something special... a raggy ruffle throw rug... 







It is made from a natural colour linen and cotton blend fabric. I have lined it with a wool/cotton batting and backed it in the same linen fabric. As you can see it is all one colour but I have added a few ruffles, ruching and vintage lace on some of the squares. It measures 142 cm square (4' 6") and is the first in a new line of linen furnishings I will be offering on ebay and etsy.


I think this design should suit almost any decor and so will the colour...

I have placed a white cushion against the throw so you can get an idea of the true colour of the throw.



So all you have to do to win is
1. leave me a comment on this post for one entry.
2. grab my giveaway button ... or copy and paste it on your blog with a link back to this post for a second entry (please read note below)
3. become a follower for a third entry. If you are already a follower please leave a comment to let me know.

Make sure you leave me a separate comment for each of the above to get your 3 entries! So if you've never left a comment before and just like to read (which is what I sometimes do) now is the time to leave one.
This could be your lucky day...

This giveaway will be posted to ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Entries close on 14th March ...    GOOD LUCK!   
take care, Maryann  
   ps.. I am having ALOT of trouble getting my giveaway button code to work.. so if you wanted to put my button on your sidebar please just right click on the pic and  save it to your computer. Then upload it to the gadget thingy under 'add a pic' with a link back to this post.  Thanks a bunch!
