one fresh give-away

 A year ago, Mary Kate talked me into starting a blog.
 I didn't know what I was doing...
 It's a year later, and I'm still learning and looking for ways to improve. I've so appreciated all of your friendship, helpful comments, and support this year. It's time for me to give you a little something in return...

Four things, to be exact...
 Cath Kidston's Make book, Cath Kidston's Mending Kit, an adorable CK mouse pin cushion, and some sweet heart straight pins.
 In no time at all, you'll be whipping up projects like this adorable embellished straw tote.  Have I mentioned I've a thing for straw bags? Maybe you do, too...

Or, how about some sweet little felt egg cozies? Perfect for Easter.
 It's just what you need this Spring, to put a little fresh spin on various things around your house.
 I'm here to help, peeps.
Now for the technical part...

One winner will be chosen at random on February 25, 2011. In order to win, simply leave a comment. If you're a follower, leave a second comment. If you feel like posting about this little give-away on your lovely blog, please leave a third comment. 

That's three chances, and you never know...you just might get lucky. 
Questions? Contact me at birdieblue@rocketmail.com
And, yes, it's open to international bloggers, too.

xoxo
