~ The First Life At Home Give-Away ~



Remember last week when I did a tablescape and mentioned the blue boxes in the corner. Well, here is what was inside those pretty boxes. While shopping last week for Blue Italian serving pieces at my new favorite discount store, Tuesday Mornings, I spotted these dishes. My first thought was my blogging friends and how these would make a good give-away so into the cart they went.


The round box contains a set of four mugs.


The tall box has a tall pitcher in it.

The square box holds a set of 4 dessert plates.


Aren't they sweet?


Each one is a different pattern.


I have wanted to have a give-away for a long time so when I spotted these Beach Cottage sets by Rosanna at Tuesday Mornings I decided the time was right. Hopefully you like what I picked for one of you. I must admit the temptation to keep them for myself. But, no......... these three sets are for one of my blogger friends ;)
To enter to win all three sets of Beach Cottage dishes sign up to follow Life At Home in the box at the top of my side bar so I can keep up with what you are blogging about, and leave a comment on this post. Spread the word to your blogging buddies and let me know that you have, and I will enter you twice to win. In two weeks, on April 15, the winner will be announced.
Thanks for reading Life At Home. I hope I have been able to spread some sunshine into your lives, I know all of you have brightened my days with your amazing blogs.
Good luck with the give-away and I hope you keep reading Life At Home.
Hugs,
Sue

  21. Sue: Thank you for leaving a message on my blog! My door saga continues as I made a trip to Lowes on my lunch hour and bought WHITE paint to REPAINT the sidelights white. Now, keeping in mind, they WERE white and I painted them BLACK! It's too much black though, it looks like a cave! I am leaving the door black though. I'm good with that.....I think.....for now!
