A WITCHY Giveaway ~

Since I am in the throes of designing for Harvest/Hallowe'en, 
I thought I might offer a small token to you, my readers and followers ~

I've been blessed to be able to do what I love to do as a profession,
and it's because of all of you who support my work :)

SO
I am having a giveaway of my little
'Good Witch' sampler…




she was stitched onto my 28ct Old Farmhouse Linen 
using cotton threads that I over dyed myself…

i included a crescent moon & sprinkling of stars, a pumpkin by her tiny feet
and of course she holds her beloved besom (broom)
the words 'good witch' float on either side of her…


good little witch
 I chose to frame her in a beautiful, simple antique frame ~ ca. late 1800's.
this frame has a wonderful lemon-gilt paint with black accents ~
the glass was cut to fit the frame by Peter, 
and is early wavy glass that was one of the original windows here in our old farmhouse…


good luck!
outer frame measurements are approx. 6" x 8"
and the back is covered with brown paper and has a sawtooth hanger.
signed by me too ~

To enter for this giveaway, you can:
1 ~ leave me a comment here on this post 
2 ~ become a follower of my blog
3 ~ post about this giveaway on your blog
4 ~ or do all three steps above!

On friday, June 20th at 6:00 pm,
using the random number generator, 
~ I will announce the winner of my little good witch ~

Good Luck to you and Best Witches!

* Blessed be * 
Lori

First comments rarely get picked but I want to enter anyway. I love Halloween. So much so that my kitchen is decorated year round with antiquey Halloween stuff, and my husband and I were married on Halloween night, in a wildlife area, with a misty rain to boot! Love it all.

Summer has not yet begun, but you are thinking ahead to Halloween. I love your little witch and it has been fun reading the other comments.
