Great Day for a Giveaway~

Hello, my dear readers!

There's not a better way to start the week than a giveaway from one of my lovely sponsors.



Readers, meet Kristin of Faded Prairie, a fabulous Etsy store specializing in faded farm finds: industrial, primitive, and vintage goods.



As Kristin says, "Discovering discarded items that still have the spirit of What Once Was is a joy for me and I want to pass that sense of a gentler time on to you..."

Kristin has a talent for finding wonderful vintage items and making you need them (yes, I did say NEED them) with her fabulous product styling and amazing photography...


And Kristin recently started a new venture handcrafting sweet lovelies like this adorable clutch made from drop cloth canvas...


Can you say, "LOVE"?



Today, Kristin has generously offered to give one reader of the Shabby Nest this set of three vintage blue jars in 2 quart, 1 pint and 1/2 pint sizes. So pretty!
To be entered for this drawing, simply leave a comment. Followers of The Shabby Nest will receive an extra entry. Tweet, blog or facebook this giveaway and receive an extra entry for each. (Please note: for extra entries to be valid, they must have their own comment...I use random.org to pick the winner, and each comment is counted as one entry.) Drawing ends Tuesday, February 23rd at 11:59 MST. Winner will be announced Thursday morning.
EDITED TO ADD: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED THURSDAY, FEB. 25th.

Oh, and Kristin has a fabulous blog as well...stop by and pay her a visit!


Don't forget: This Friday is the RETURN OF THE FRUGAL FRIDAY LINKY PARTY!! Get your frugal decorating ideas ready to share and come link up on Friday!! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this time!


Have a great day~

I adore the vintage blue mason jars! Reminds me of growing up on the farm. When I go back home, my Grandmother uses them as tea glasses. Now that I'm 1500 miles away from good 'ole TX, it would be just wonderful to have some of my own.
