A Fabulous Giveaway!!!!!

Yes! Yes! Yes!
It's a giveaway especially for you, all of my wonderful readers, fellow bloggers, friends!! It's my very first giveaway and I'm thrilled, ecstatic, over the moon!!



I wanted to do something to express my appreciation for your kind words that you leave me, your visits to my blog and for hanging in with me all summer even though I barely showed up around here!
Each comment and visit really means a lot and this is my way of saying thank you.
I made this bag myself out of blue and white striped ticking fabric and jute webbing for the handles. The bag is lined with unbleached cotton and is the perfect size to carry as a purse or to use as a mini market bag.
jute webbing handles...
fully lined in unbleached 100% cotton.
Just leave me a comment letting me know that you'd like to enter the giveaway. Anyone at all may enter and you don't have to have a blog to enter. If you don't have a blog though, be sure to leave me an email address in your comment so that I'm able to get in touch with you if you are the winner!
I'm going to leave it open until midnight on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 and I will draw a name on Wednesday morning!! I will announce the winner by 8am.
Don't forget to enter - I'm so excited!!!
Good luck to everyone and thank you for stopping by to visit me!!
God Bless,
Kathleen
