A Giveaway Party For My 411 Blog Post!

It's Monday again. Can you believe how fast time is flying? I'm participating in another party today.

This is my #411 blog posting. I think maybe I was supposed to have a pinata and confetti and cupcakes (wink wink) on my #400 posting, but I let that one slip right on past, so we'll just have a little giveaway today since you are such great blogging friends.
I found this gorgeous crochet doily at yard sale. It is beautiful. I have never seen this pattern and it is so so pretty. I have not used it for myself, though I would love to. However, I wanted to pass it along to one of you. It's all just to celebrate YOU!

Cindy at "My Romantic Home" has started having giveaways on the second Monday of each month, and I thought it sounded so fun to join in today and share these things with you. I will find some other cute little items to tuck into the package with it...shells, buttons, a vintage hankie...I'll surprise you! Please just leave a little comment to have your name entered into the give away drawing. I will choose a winner from the comments on Friday evening June 12.If you'd like to see some of the other giveaway participants, jump on over to Cindy's blog.
You will have to click on Cindy's name to go to her blog. For some reason, I can't get the picture to click and take you over there. Thank you!


I truly hope your week is off to a great start!

Love, Rachel

Have a wonderful day. Love you,

This doily is so pretty! I would love to win this (and you wouldn't even have to ship it!).
My grandmother use to make the prettiest doilies and I always admired them in her home. After she passed away, several of my aunts and cousins went through her things, taking many of the pretties like these. I lived too far away and never received one of her creations to remember her by. But I have lots of great memories that no one can take away from me!
