Give Away!

So here is the little giveaway I promised to do! All you need to do is tell me a little bit about yourself in the comments section. Some ideas for this include, how long have you decorated in the current style? How many children or grandchildren you have? What do you do for a living etc. Just a little bit about yourself. I will select someone at random and announce the winner on Saturday night. You don't need to be a follower of my blog but I would love it if you became one. Good luck!
Here is what you get: My favorite scent from scentsible scents primitive gatherings, a little doll that can hang of sit on a shelf, and a little checked homespun linen.

Please leave me your email addy so I can let you know unless you already have a link to your blog or profile. I will choose someone Saturday night! Best of luck!

Have a great day,



  1. Carey - What great goodies!! Well, let me answer some of your questions... I have always decorated in Country, but over the years it has significantly changed to more primitive. I love the hunt for antiques that I can use to decorate my home and all the primitive wares out there just add the special final touch (lol). I have 1 little boy that is 2 years old and he is the light of my life. A little miracle quite frankly and I thank my Heavenly Father for him daily.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week.

  3. Hi, Carey~
    What a wonderful giveaway. I'm already a follower. I'm retired, married, mom to 3, grandma to 1, almost 2 hehe, keeper of the home and I love my life. I've decorated prim it seems like forever ~ I've had my antique piesafe for 25 yrs, but our house is definitely more prim than it used to be. I've been a basketweaver for over 20 yrs. and have always had a needle in my hands. Thanks for a chance to win.

  4. Hi Carey, and thanks for offering this wonderful give a way and I would love to be included.

    I have loved Colonial/primitive for as long as I can remember - even as a very young girl I dreamed of having these kinds of things and not even knowing what they really were!!

    I have been making my Penny Rugs for over 5 years now - but only selling on the web for 2-1/2 years. Before that I did craft shows and consignements and then sold to retail stores in Pennsylvania.

    My husband Doug and I reaised 3 sons and we now have 3 daughter in-laws and 5 beautiful grandchildren ranging in ages from 19 on down to 11 months.

    Doug and I have been married (will be in Sept.) 46 years and are still best friends.

    I do hope your random pick is ME!...

  5. Hi Carey,
    What a great giveaway! Well here is a little about me. I have a 12 year old daughter and a fourteen year old son.I 'm a homeschooling mom, an Air Force wife like you:-), and I love to decorate!I've been decorating my home with primitives for about 6 or 7 years. I'd love to own my own primitive store one day when we retire from the AF. Thanks for offering this wonderful giveaway and have a happy day!

  6. Hey Carey - Great giveaway! I do all sorts of things, but my main passions are quilting and rug hooking. I've done some fun trash to treasure makeoevers and love to putter in the garden during the summer months. Three kids - two married, but no grandchildren yet - sigh!

  7. Hey Carey. I love your giveaway goodies. They are my colors. My husband and I have been blessed with two fabulous children. Aaron is 21 and Allison is 13. My husband Bob and I have been married for 24 years. I have been an office manager for a Concrete Company for a little over 20 years. I've always had a passion for Country Decorating but over the last couple of years I have been trying to change over to a more Primitive Style. Slowly but surely I am getting there. I love to cook, take long drives in the country and attend sporting events that my children participate in.
    Have a blessed day.

  8. Hi Carey, wonderful giveaway! I would love to be entered! I always liked the primitive way of decorating but never really got into it until I started seeing what everyone else was doing...out here in blogland! So now I visit GW often and do lots of makeovers. I also paint and sew but have to say, haven't done much lately of either. I have 3 kids and 1 grandson. I don't work outside of the home and I have a wonderful hubby that spoils me way too much!!

  9. Thanks for the chance. I have been a crafter since i was little (I am 36 now). I love prim and country. I am a school teacher (2nd grade). I have two sons. They keep me active. I recently ran the Pittsburgh Marathon Half Marathon. I love to stitch and paint. Have a great day and God bless, Kim

  18. My name is Patti. I'm 55, married for 28 years and have two married daughters and three grandchildren. I work as a scheduling coordinator for a medical practice. My husband and I have been collectors of oak antique furniture pieces since 1981, most of them were handmade by my husband's ancestors. Therefore I had always decorated with a country theme. Just this past year after reading everyone's primitive blogs, I have become obsessed with visiting thrift stores and refinishing old trash into something new to decorate my home. Right now I have quite a stockpile of pieces to work on. I love all types of handcrafts. Please enter me in your drawing. Have a great weekend.
