Monday is Etsy day

Monday will now be known as “Etsy Day”.  Every Monday I will either highlight some of my favorite Etsy shops, announce the winner of an Etsy giveaway, introduce you to an Etsy shop with a giveaway or host a Shop Til You Drop link party.   I think it’s important to share the talents of so many wonderful people who are working hard to make their shops successful.
So . . . if you have an Etsy shop that you’d like featured here OR if you’d like to give away an item in your shop, please shoot me an email.  I love meeting new people and would be honored to feature you here on Etsy Day!

Giveaway Reminder – Union Jack Pillow

Happy Friday All!

Well, yesterday’s rummage sale run was a huge success.  I can’t wait to show you what I scored, but it’ll have to wait until next week.  By then, I will have also hit the barn sale and the flea market.  Whew.  I love these kind of weekends!

But I wanted to end this wonderful week by reminding you that there’s a giveaway going on . . .

for this awesome red and white Union Jack pillow cover from the incredibly talented Jill at Sew a Fine Seam!

It could be that the Union Jack isn’t quite your style.  Well, let’s think Christmas for a second, okay?  Maybe someone you know would love this pillow cover?  Enter the giveaway and give it to them for Christmas.  Or how about this one-of-a-kind-everyone-is-going-to-ask-you-where-got-it pillow sitting on your couch to add to the rest of your Christmas decor?  Red and white is perfect for Christmas and Christmas is only 137 days away.  Ahhh!  Yeah.  I know.  Can you believe it?

Or maybe you’re thinking “I’ll never win it anyways”?  Well, you certainly won’t win if you don’t enter.  “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”, the hubby always tells me.

So what are you waiting for?  Enter here for your chance to win a pillow cover to give away, or to keep for yourself.  Whatever you decide, the giveaway is open until this Sunday, August 12th at midnight.  A winner will be chosen by and will be announced on Monday, August 13th.

Good luck!

Thank you for reading!


P.S.  Please stop by and “like” The Ironstone Nest on Facebook.  I share things on there that I don’t post about here, like pictures of our run in with a Horned Owl the other night, or the fabulous Farmhouse wire baskets I bought the other day at Marshalls that I wanted you to know about in case you wanted some too!

P.S.S.  I did buy 4 sewing boxes at the sale this morning.  Resistance was futile.

P.S.S.S. I love frugal, junkin’ friends, so if you ever want to join me at a rummage sale, barn sale, flea market, whatever, let me know.  It would be wonderful to have some company!

    Laura, it’s great to see a blog from the city where I live! I would like to meet up with you sometime for a shopping expedition here in town or nearby. My home is full of collections, antiques and oddities but there is usually room for more! I have amassed alot of ironstone too. Thanks for the delightful blog.
