September Give-Away..."Retro Fall Flowers"

With the wedding looming on the horizon and a grandbaby due any day, I wasn't sure I would be able to pack in a Tote Give Away this month, but the baby isn't here yet and wedding plans are progressing nicely, so... it's time for a Give-Away!!!

This month I took a poll to determine your favorite Fall colors. The results came back that the majority of you favored the colors of pumpkin orange and dark chocolate brown. However, most of the other Fall colors had a positive showing as well. I hope this combination makes everybody happy! This fun, retro fabric has a dark chocolate brown background with bright retro flowers in all your favorite Fall colors! The Michael Miller fabric on the bottom of the Hang Up, called "Beatnik Blur" is the perfect compliment next to the retro garden!

September's contest will run through midnight on Sunday, September 21st. Monday morning, September 22nd, the winner of the contest will be announced. For this contest one name will be chosen from all those entered. The contest is open to all blogging buddies, relatives, and friends. Don't be shy!

Here are the rules of the contest:
1) The participants must live in the continental U.S. or Canada. (I will provide the postage.)
2.) Each person that makes a comment below will have her name entered in the Tote Give-Away contest. If you put a "shout out" on your blog about the contest, and come back and let me know through another comment, your name will be entered again.
3.) No anonymous comments, please. If you are not a friend or relative that I already know and love, please leave your name and a way for me to contact you (either an email address or the address of your blog). If I don't have any way to contact you, your name will not be eligible.
4.) This tote is not meant for resale. Only those intending to use the tote for their personal use may sign up for this contest. Thank you!

"Retro Fall Flowers" measures 14.5" by 12". It is fully lined, doubly interfaced, and has a reinforced fabric covered base for extra support. It sports two inside pockets and canvas straps.

Claudia said...

What a gorgeous bag! I love autumn and all the colors of autumn, and green just happens to be my favorite color of all. It's the color of grass and leaves (before they turn, of course) and all the floral colors of the rainbow go so well with green in nature. The bag is a winner!

I'm Claudia and my blog is http://mesmereyed.blogspot.com/

Have a great autumn!

I have been searching for months for a new bag. I have searched from walmart to target to costco for the perfect bag. This is it I love it..

Kristi Chase said...

Of course I am going to enter. Holy Cow 105 comments! I guess the word is spreading. I just have to laugh when I read your comment on my blog. I guess it shows what kind of blogging addiction I have. Basically what is the only reason that Kristi would not have commented on your blog, having a baby! Ha Ha so funny!

Dani said...

My favorite colors! I have to sign up of course..this makes 106...

Petey said...
