Strawberry Extravanga and Giveaway

 I can't seem to let go of summer, even though Labor Day has now come and gone.  I've collected a nice little grouping of strawberries that always make me think of summer.   I hope that as the nights get cooler and the trees start to change and eventually snow blankets the ground(not that it will happen here in my part of Georgia) that when you look at these strawberries you too will be reminded of the wonderful days of summer and the great fruit that those warm wonderful days provide for us all.






Isn't she cute??  I made her.






Wouldn't you love to wash dishes with this sponge??



Pretty sure this vintage cloth is designed for a card table.



Strawberry tea towel, vintage of course!



Cute little nylon carry-all bag perfect for groceries, disguised as a strawberry!

OK, so this vintage apron doesn't have strawberries on it anywhere...but I just love gingham, so I decided to include it.


To celebrate the last days of summer and to celebrate my 6 month anniversary of blogging I'm giving this entire grouping of strawberries away and the apron, too!

Just leave a comment, that's all you have to do to be entered to win.   I will choose the winner on Friday, September 9th, with a random number generator.  Then I'll notify the winner via email. 

I'm linking up to my favorite meme, Rednesday over at Sue's blog It's A Very Cherry World.

Fondly,
Ann

Ann...I could sew a Cherry on that red gingham apron for you...lol.
How clever that little strawberry shopping bag is. The strawberry pie sponge is really cute, too.

What a cute assortment of strawberries! the tea towels are wonderful and so if the card table cloth. is that a door knob cover you made with the bunny, it is cute as well. I remember my Gran a red check apron like that w/o the bib.
What a generous gift for you to offer to someone, Ann! Have a beautiful week!

Love these, especially the apron and tea towel. You can't let go of summer and I'm glad to be rid of it for now. Well, I live in Florida so Summer's all year long at times.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on the red door post. Don't you just love Rednesday? Have a great one.

Ann said...

What a charming strawberry red extravaganza, an absolute bushel full! So evocative of summertime - we never really had one here on the So. Cal. coast this year. WAH!

You're so sweet, please add my name to your giveaway.

Happiest of Rednesday's,

Hi Ann! What a wonderful collection of strawberry goodies! I just picked a few this morning (we planted 75 plants this spring) and I was just thinking that I need to start searching for strawberry things at the next flea market. Perfect timing to find your give away! I LOVE that tassel. So please put me in for the draw...I'm not very lucky but I figure someone has to win so I may as well try. Thanks for stopping by today...have a great Thursday! Maura :)

Thank you for being so generous and lenient on your rules. I just get so discouraged when some sites doing a giveaway and they have ten things you have to do. You know...its like, torture. I can understand the reason behind it, but there are other avenues to get followers. Anyhow, I just wanted to expressed how your requirements should be the way a giveaway is, and I commence you for being truly GIVING away. Smiles.

Can't believe my kitchen is done in strawberries and I don't have any of these wonderful items you are giving away. If I don't win would love to buy a tassel like the one featured.
