A Lavender Dilly Plus More Fun!


Blueberry muffins with fresh strawberries and tea.

I don't know about you, but when I find a new shop that I love, it's a thrill. I discovered A Lavender Dilly on Etsy back in March, and I've made several purchases from the shop since then. Look at these gorgeous plates:

So many choices, so little time!

I always wanted some mini blue willow dishes, and now I have them. There are so many designs to choose from--these are just some of my favorites.

And here's the first item I bought from A Lavender Dilly, a pile of shabby books. They're so fun! One book even has a faint coffee mug ring on it! How's that for realism? It's always been a pleasure buying from Carrie at A Lavender Dilly too. Her customer service is top notch, and she has always included something free with my purchases--yay! Plus, isn't it fun anticipating receiving a package from far away? I love it.

I love A Lavender Dilly, and I love all of my blog friends, so here's a giveaway just for you. If you're one of my existing 700+ (!) followers, and you'd like to be included in the giveaway, just leave a nice comment below. No need to post this giveaway on your blog. Leave your comment by midnight on Thursday, July 26, 2012, and I'll announce the winner on Saturday, July, 28, 2012. That's one week away!

What you could win:

Giveaway Prize!

I purchased one of Carrie's traditional tea towel sets with you all in mind. Also included is a set of three miniature books made by me, three miniature magazines, a mini bottle of olive oil, and a cup and saucer. I hope you like it, my friends!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have a lot to celebrate, so there will be more giveaways in the very near future. I'll tell you more then. Keep it fun, and good luck in the draw! xoxo Jennifer

  16. I know her beautiful shop and I already made a purchase for a (far far away) future project so I can nod and say everything you said about Carrie and her shop is true... ;O) The hardest part is to choose - Thank you for just another great giveaway price... but because I've been lucky enough to win a former one it would be unfair to participate again, so please leave the chance to all the others!

    Hugs
    Birgit

  43. Hi everyone! I sent an email to Birgit, asking her to reconsider being in the giveaway. After twisting her arm, she finally agreed. ;-) I told her that I join any and all giveaways that I qualify for and am interested in, because I feel it's just the luck of the draw and very fun to see who wins each time. So... Birgit is back in the running for this giveaway--yay! xo Jennifer
