My First Giveaway!

Since my Patriotic Link Party is coming to an end on July 4th, 
what better way to end the party than with a grand finale like

It's a 4th of July GIVEAWAY.   Literally!

If you've recently read my Cinnamon Stick Firecrackers post you may have noticed the wood July 4th set in the picture along with those firecrackers. 

Well I've created a new set for this giveaway and you may just be the lucky winner to have these in your home to enjoy!  The letters and number are cut out of 3/4" pine, stand 5 inches tall, are hand painted and heavily distressed. 

For your chance at winning this GIVEAWAY
just follow the 2 simple steps below. 

1.  Follow my blog through Google Friend Connect, Linky Followers, Facebook or Bloglovin'.

2.  Leave a comment on this post telling me why you would like to win this giveaway.

How easy is that?

My GIVEAWAY will end on Wednesday, June 27th at midnight (PT) and the winner will be chosen by a random number generator and then announced on my blog Thursday, June 28th. 

Good luck to all who enter!
