Fourth Blog Birthday Giveaway...

 To celebrate my FOURTH BLOG BIRTHDAY, I've selected an assortment 
of wonderful things to share for a GIVEAWAY! There are five different
gift packages, but only FOUR will be given away. I want the winners to
be able to choose from a variety of things that might appeal to their interest.

The first gift package (above) is the CRAFTERS GIFT PACKAGE.
This package includes: a box of Japanese art tape (6 rolls!); an oak leaf paper 
punch; Autumn-themed buttons and paper fasteners and two really cool books.
These books were originally given to me by my blog friend, Shell May, but
I've absorbed every beautiful word and I know she wouldn't mind if I send 
them on to another creative friend. The first book is "Living the Creative Life",
and the other is "Taking Flight". They're chock-full of gorgeous inspiration!
My second gift is the VINTAGE GIFT PACKAGE.
The centerpiece of this package is a favorite ivory capodimonte rose basket.
I've filled it with vintage lace and crochet, and there will be ribbons and
buttons added to this gift, too. If you love all things vintage, you'll love this!
 Perhaps your first love is spending time in the kitchen. For you,
I've created the COOKING GIFT PACKAGE. It will include a 
sweet bowl with pestle for mashing up your favorite herbs and spices;
and "Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cooking" cookbook. I'm going to
add a beautiful set of wooden spoons to this gift, as well.
 You know how much I love to sew, right? Perhaps that's your interest, too.
You can choose this SEWING GIFT PACKAGE.
I've pulled six sweet girly patterns (you could choose boys patterns - or I'll exchange 
them for a few quilt patterns if you prefer!); a folding measuring tape (12"); 
a mini sewing kit; a ring pincushion and a box of button-head straight pins for you. 
 And, last but not least I have a KNITTY GIFT PACKAGE.
I've included seven pre-wound balls of Tahki Cotton Yarn and a copy
of the "Knit Hats!" book with fabulous hat patterns. I tucked everything
 into a little, old wicker basket that you can repurpose as you choose.

Once the winners have been announced and they've chosen their gifts,
I'll be adding a few more items on the same theme to each package, so
you're not seeing everything that will be included in the gifts. That will
be a surprise to each of the giveaway recipients. Don't you love surprises?
So, there you have it. All the choices that will be available to FOUR lucky
winners. The winners will be able to choose their package in the order their
names are drawn. Now to tell you how to enter your name for the giveaway.
• You must be a friend/follower of Brynwood blog to enter. 
Leave ONE comment telling me that you're a follower for one chance to win.
• Leave a second (SEPARATE) comment telling me which gift you'd chose.
This comment doesn't have to be left right away - so you can put a 
little space between your first and second comment.
• Leave a third (SEPARATE) comment if you post my giveaway 
button on your blog to tell your friends about our celebration gifts.
This will be your third chance to win!

ONLY COMMENTS ON THIS POST WILL COUNT
TOWARD THE DRAWING.
That's it.
I'll close the drawing and choose FOUR winners on  
FRIDAY, March 22, 2013.
(As always, winners will be chosen via Random.org)
I'll announce the winners on SATURDAY, March 23, 2013.
Drawing is open to all blog followers, no matter where you live.
Please be sure that I will be able to contact you!

This is all just my humble way of thanking you for sharing your days
with me these past four years. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you!   

Thank you and Good luck!!!

  54. Happy 4th. Wonderful way to celebrate and great gifts too. Your ivory capodimonte rose basket just brings back memories of visiting my grandmother's home, as well as a few items that my mother treasured. Very special piece. And, I have a table that it would look great on, should I be lucky enough to win.
