Fall Giveaway at Cottonwood Lane Primitives--Ended September 22, 2011

Giveaway Ends September 24th
I really enjoyed my last giveaway and the opportunity it provided to meet many new blogging friends, so I'm doing another one in honor of fall. I don't know if you love acorns as much as I do, but I loved this design with the acorns dancing along the edge by Jan Goos and thought it would be a perfect little mat to enjoy throughout the fall season. The photo above was taken under my Ott light and is the best representation of the background color.
Braided Wool Edging
 Here's the details: 

  1. The giveaway is for the the 17" mat only.
  2. Please post a comment on this page and let me know you are a follower.
  3. You get a second entry if you leave a favorite quote about fall or Halloween.
  4. A third entry if you post about this giveaway on your blog.
  5. If you post anonymously, I won't be able to contact you if you win unless you leave an email address. You don't have to have a blog to win, but I do need to know how to get back in touch with you.
Good luck!

Here is my fall quote. I learned this poem in kindergarten and have just recently come across it again and want to make it into a little wall hanging.
October gave a party, the leaves by hundreds came.
The chestnuts, oaks and maples and leaves by every name.
Just love this poem.

Jessica @Blessings in the Country said...

That is the most gorgeous mat I have ever seen. I would love a chance in your drawing. :)

My favorite Autumn/Halloween quote is from the Linus:

"Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see."

Oh and I am a follower!

Blessings, Jessica

1. I am a new follower. (Great for me I am glad I found you!)
2 I would love to win this beautiful mat. I am a rug hooker and I did a braid around my Halloween Ghost last year. I like yours because it is a raw edge finish.

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~Stanley Horowitz

On Wednesdays on my blog I do a quote--I think I will use Autumn ones for the next few weeks. Thank you for your idea!

I love your mat and I hope I win, but if I don't can you give me the name of the pattern and if you got it on line or where I can find it. Thanks

"I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall."
