One Year Anniversary and A Giveaway.

Well I made it!  I have had some bumps along the way but as of Sunday A Full Cottage turned one.

So it is time to have a giveaway!  So with out further ado.

006

There are 14 items in the giveaway, one for each month that I have been blogging.  Just to make it a little more interesting I decided to have each item represent a different month and tell you why I chose it.

First up January.

011

A Mary Engelbreit  magnetic memo board with four magnets.  I chose this because I always think of January as the month to ORGANIZE!

For February a collection of Bath and Body works because who doesn’t LOVE (he he) to be pampered.

In March I start to really get spring fever and need to get some fresh flowers into the house so here is a pretty blue vase.  I also like to collect vintage pottery and I love the shape of this one.

This gorgeous vintage postcard of Versailles makes me think of the all the flowers that those April showers will bring.

For May MORE flowers on this small vintage plate/ashtray.

013

June is when we really get to start enjoying the outdoors around here so some floating citrus candles.

010

July we have sea shell napkin rings  we want to do beachy things and take all our meals out in the backyard. 

009

Here is a collection of shells for August the last time for the year that we are able to go to the beach.015

September is my hubby’s birthday and he likes blue so a set of vintage doilies.

030

This candle reminds me of fall.  It is representing October.

029

I love to have my girlfriends over in November for coffee and I think that these bird mugs would be just perfect for some pre-holiday hospitality.

014

I love to decorate with vintage sheet music for Christmas and New years so here is a music book from 1928.

007 

008

You get the whole booklet.  All 80 pages!

Again for January mending is on the menu so some vintage buttons.

012

Which brings us to this month February.  A book that I love Rachel Ashwell’s the Shabby Chic Collection.  This book is gently used, but a great source of inspiration.
