Entertaining and a little Giveaway...


Hello my friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!  My sister was in town for 4 days {which was so nice}, so I am a little late with posting this week...

I popped into Anthropologie the other day and fell in love with their new Homegrown Monogram Mugs!  I had some fun taking pictures of them...I wanted to show them to you because I thought they would be so pretty for a Mother's Day tablesetting...



aren't they adorable?!!


...you could use them as the cup at each place setting, to serve tea/coffee, or you could fill them with flowers and use them for cute little vases. 

 {my pear tree is in bloom right now so I finally have something from my garden that I can use!}



So now for a quick giveaway  ~

You all are so special to me and I appreciate you coming by and reading my little blog so very much, that I thought I would give some of these anthro mugs away to one winner!

Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered to win all of the Homegrown Monogram Mugs that are shown here in this post...a total of 8 mugs.

If you would like to blog, Facebook, or Twitter about this giveaway, I will happily enter your name an additional time into the drawing {please leave a separate comment for each}.  Winner to be drawn by random number generator.


















Contest is open worldwide and ends at midnight on Monday, May 2nd.  I will announce the winner on Tuesday morning...

Thank you again for all of the generous support you all give me!!!

Enjoy your weekend!



Tracey

I seriously thought about not facebooking this giveaway so I would have a better chance of winning...But all my girlfriends would kill me if I didn't tell them about it, so I might win, but I'd have no friends to join me in admiring them. ;-)
