Martha over at KATES CREATIVE SALVAGE has donated all of this...so let's all give Martha a big HUG and tell her THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!!! Everybody is lovin' this stuff and I can't wait to get my hands on this paint and try it out myself. I have a mirror that I found at a flea market last year...it will be my first victim...then I will be painting a coffee table and end tables that are in my cottage (more on that later). So do you want to know how you can WIN? Okay here we go...
1. Become a follower at KATES CREATIVE SALVAGE...1 entry (mandatory)
2. Go over and visit Martha's Etsy shop...come back and tell me what you favorite item is...2 entries
3. Like her on FACEBOOK...1 entry
4. Follow her on TWITTER...1 entry
5. Follow me here at COASTAL CHARM...1 entry (mandatory)
6. Post the giveaway on your blog...2 entries
Do all six and you will have a grand total of eight chances to WIN this awesome giveaway...may the best gal WIN!!!! The giveaway ends Sunday August 7 at midnight...WINNER will be announced on Monday August 8. I need a comment for each thing you did...thanks!
Oh my...I almost forgot to list all the goodies...silly me!
1. Two quarts of paint...get this...you get to pick what colors you want...yippee!!
2. One can of wax.
3. One wax brush.
4. One clay tag...you can find these in her Etsy shop.
5. One clay knob...you can find these in her Etsy shop.

Now for my weekly NIFTY THRIFTY item that I have to share with all of y'all...really it's Mr.CC's item (maybe I can take credit...since it was my idea...what you think?) Back in January while Haley and I were planning her wedding, the idea of having a 9 foot wooden cross with a floral swag on it at the alter was the WOW factor that we were looking for...so guess what...Mr.CC made this 9 foot cross (this man would do anything for his girls). So you must be saying to yourself...why is it so thrifty? It's thrifty because the wood that he used was FREE...he was given this huge trailer of free wood a couple of months ago. Since the cross was FREE...I didn't think he would care that I spent a lot on the floral swag...it all equal out...well kinda. After the wedding was over, we donated the cross to our church and we are looking forward to seeing it again on display...maybe another bride will use it. The party is rolling...so let's all link up and do some partyin'!!!
                                                 Glad you came...now be sure
                                                    to invite all your friends,
                                                                 Linda
                                      Now didn't this FATHER OF THE BRIDE
                                                do an outstanding job on this
                                                         DIY project?
                                        Any of you remember my $10 ferns that
                                      I shared with y'all back in the Spring? Well
                                                here are a couple of them.
                                            Our bride was happy with it...so that
                                            made the FOB and MOB happy!!
Her flowers arrived and they were just
perfect...what a relief!
You can view wedding pics here and
bridal pics here.
                                            Don't forget to enter........
                                                   and I wish you lots of luck!!!

Whoa! More than 130 comments -- nothing like a spectacular giveaway to get those fingers onto the keyboards!

I've been a Follower for ages, and I also mentioned the giveaway with a link to you on my blog post today, along with the link to Nifty Thrifty tuesday.

I'm LOVING the wedding pictures. Our daughter was married on 6/25 and I'm still collecting pictures of that -- and also thinking, "Oh GEEZ, I should have done this, or that...." but then I remember that bride and groom were both happy, so ... then I calm down.

You looked lovely, too! Wonderful wedding.
Have you hit the let down yet?
Cass

Cass @ That Old House said...

Just visited Martha's Etsy shop -- I love the Warwick china platter -- with its tiny roses and gilding. It's amazingly similar to a set of old Limoges china that I have -- just about the same pattern!

My, it would blend in nicely ....
