Welcome to Nook and Cranny's 300th post and my giveaway.
My gosh I can't believe I have posted 300 times..
I must say with 300 posts I sure do love to blog. I love to follow blogs and I have a large number of favorite blogs that I follow, yes indeed I do. I mentioned at the beginning of the week I would be offering a giveaway in celebration of this . I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my followers and all of the warm and wonderful comments I have received for 300 posts.
I would like to offer for this giveaway this very rustic shabby chic black crow. More on the details of the crow in a second.
I would like to also offer in this giveaway something new I've been working on, "handmade layered ribbon/trims". This piece of the black crows with pink crowns measures 41".
I stained the vintage eyelet trim with coffee, stamped the crows and the crowns on and added a little pink glitter to the crowns (don't think it shows up very good here though). Taking a piece of plain muslin I sewed the eyelet trim along with large size pink rick rack and white flowered trim on my sewing machine with pink thread.
The crow is made using black burlap, filled with pillow stuffing and hand sewed using pink thread.
The tail of the crow has the words "Life is a little Brighter" along with some pink roses.
Notice the ribbon along the bottom of the crow from the piece above.
I thank you for entering my giveaway and good luck to all.
Thanks for stopping by.
