Christmas Giveaway

The season is upon us - the most wonderful time of the year.  I have enjoyed my first year of blogging and want to celebrate with you all.  It was a big and scary step to hit 'publish' just last year, but it has allowed me to meet great new friends along the way. 
To thank you, I'm offering a giveaway with these handmade gifts in Nordic/French style:


1) A hopsack linen stocking with a feminine boot and raw-edged cuff.  I've also tied a white fabric bow to the stocking loop with white seam binding.  A red ticking fleur-de-lys crest adorns the front:

2)  A white burlap bag, cinched with vintage Belgium laundry ribbon, and hand-embroidered with a red star:

3) An 8" x 8" pillow made of cotton red toile:

And how about this for versatility?  The pillow may also be transformed into a 'Present Pillow', much like those in my Etsy store collection.  Simply remove the fabric bow from the stocking and tie it onto the pillow for this look:


The fabric bow could be used anywhere in your Christmas decor.  It would look terrific on a green wreath or tree. 


I do hope you enter for a chance to win and spread the word.  This giveaway is open to all.  Christmas is meant for giving!
For one chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post.
For a second chance, post about this giveaway on your blog or add a link from your sidebar (you can copy from my sidebar at top) and leave a separate comment letting me know.
I will choose a winner using random.org on Wednesday evening, December 7th.

Thank you for entering, and for being supportive friends this past year.  Merry Christmas!
