Pretty Points Bag Giveaway!!

Pretty Points Bag by misseskwittys

In honor (and excitement) of my eyebrows and eyelashes growing back in, I've decided it's high time to do another blog giveaway!! Yippee!

It's a real treat to see those brown hairs popping up, it's really not that attractive being bald but you can wear a pretty hat--- but when the brows and lashes go there isn't any hiding THAT...ugh! LOL, Hello Uncle Fester!

So...in honor of my pretty new hairs coming in, I've made a pretty new bag!

I salvaged the lovely embroidered points from an old hand-stitched tablecloth that had seen  better days.. Paired it up with a sweet  floral print for some elegant and cottage-style drawstring bags. Isn't it great when you can make something new from something that may have been thrown away?!

I like to keep it simple...so all you have to do to enter is leave a comment here,

and if your name doesn't link to your blog, I'm going to have to have some way to get ahold of you if you win.

I'll hold the drawing on March 31st.

Good luck and my sincere thanks to all who stop by and visit here, I love reading your comments and visiting your blogs ♥♥♥

Carolyn said...

Congratulations on your new hair sprouts! Isn't it amazing what we take for granted until we don't have it? I bet you look real purdy. :)

I totally adore vintage linens of any kind, and especially love seeing them brought back to life. I always like to imagine who the person was that made them and what their life was like, etc. I know weird, but that's just me.

Anyway, I would love to enter your wonderful giveaway. The bag looks so pretty!

Jenn Maruska said...

I wish you a Springtime filled with health, family and goodness. You'll be in my heart and thoughts (as always).
