My Autumn Giveaway Is Here!

Hello Friends!
My Autumn Giveaway is here and so is my one year BLOGIVERSARY!  I can't believe that I've been going at this for a whole year!  Time has sure flown by and I'm pleased to say I have really enjoyed the learning process to creating a blog and managing it.  Along the way I have made many friends, learned tons of creative ideas, saved numerous recipes and have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with all of you! 

But now onto the fun stuff!!!


My Autumn Giveaway is this HALLOWEEN  rolling pin.  It's hand painted by me in a bright pumpkin orange with black bats and yellow stars.  Of course this rolling pin is only decorative and cannot be used for baking purposes.

Don't you think it will look cute hanging around your kitchen?  I like it so much I'm going to have to paint another one for myself! 

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

1.  Be a follower of THE CHECKERED APPLE through Google Friend Connect, GOOGLE+,  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?

This GIVEAWAY will end on Sunday, October 7th at midnight (PT) and the winner will be chosen by a random number generator and then announced on my blog Monday, October 8th.


GOOD LUCK to all who enter!

  1. Well; it almost goes without saying that I simply just adore your rolling pen. (nodding head n agreement with myself. Yes; Yes I do ... just simply adore it.) So much talent. I myself could not paint a stick man and it turn out even remotely resembling a stick man. Heehee!

    To me; Halloween is sort of the kick off of the whole holiday season (drum roll please for holiday fun!)

    Thus I am throwing my hat in the ring for the Halloween prize (with fingers crossed that you'll pick me ... pick me. Whoo Hoo! Bring on the candy goblins. I am so ready for some seasonal joy!

    Tah tah my dear! and Happy! Happy!! Anniversary!

  6. Your rolling pin is adorable and you did such an excellent job painting it. I would never have thought to paint one. That's probably because I cannot paint! Congrats on your one year blogiversary!

  13. Hi Diane,
    Your rolling pin is adorable and the perfect Halloween decoration for the kitchen! Often my kitchen goes undecorated for Halloween so it would be a welcome addition! So glad I "met" you in blogworld and congratulations on your 1 yr blogiversary!

  20. Happy Bloggoversary! I am a follower plus I will go "like" you on facebook. I would love to win because the prize is so adorable, but also because after 3 years in Hawaii, now that I live here in Virginia--we are actually going to have fall! I haven't decorated those past three years and something new would be a real treat. Thanks!

  22. Diane, Congratulations on your 1st year Blogaversary!! I've throughly enjoyed your blog and look forward to seeing many more of your talented projects. The reason I want to win the rolling pin, besides the fact that it is just so darn cute, is so that I can own a Diane at The Checkered Apple original and cash it in when you become super rich and famous. ;-)
