A Giveaway to Celebrate Moms!

This contest is now CLOSED. The random number generator has selected The Fairfield House. Congratulations Deborah!

It is time for a Décor To Adore giveaway. (Huge thunderous applause!) The giveaway is open to the following people:

Mr. Moms

Moms of fur babies. I myself like a good dachshund, doxie, wiener or sausage dog…

…but anything goes.

People who are moms by virtue of giving birth, adoption, parenting through marriage, mentoring or babysat kids via a sitcom. (Anyone else ever wish Carol Brady was their mom?)

Lastly, anyone who has ever had a mom. So basically, everyone can enter.

grandma176

The chunky Duchess of Décor with her dear mom, Karen.

The giveaway includes a brand new Anthropologie “Up Early” apron (because every mom needs one) a vintage mint green tablecloth with eight napkins (someone needs to teach manners) a favorite Mrs. Meyers hand soap (motherhood is messy) herbes de Provence and organic French lavender (for those days you need to be taken away) and lastly a real freshwater pearl necklace, bracelet and earring set (to detract from the spaghetti handprints on your shirt).

giveaway 018

Please leave one comment to enter.

For an additional entry you can tweet, facebook or take out a large billboard on a major highway announcing the giveaway. Please leave the link in the second comment.

For a third entry follow Décor To Adore on the DTA Facebook page or DTA Pinterest Page. Already adorable? Just let me know.

A winner will be selected at 5 pm on Monday, May 7th.

Im not a bona fide mum (I haven't been blessed with children as yet), however I love my mum to bits - she is my best friend in the whole world and I know she would love all of your lovely giveaways so if I was lucky enough to win something I would gift it to her.I am also mum to Laurel (my cat) and girlfriend/mum to my big kid of a partner! By the way I am having a mint green meltdown at the moment - love it and coveting all things mint green (did you see yesterdays post on my blog - if so you'll see what I mean).
Best wishes to you as always
Sophie

Sophie said...

P.S I just added a comment to my mint green appreciation post from yesterday, directing everyone who follows my little blog (a modest few) to your wonderful giveaway!

Mary Ellen said...

Oh goodness Laura what a wonderful giveaway! You are so sweet to be doing this!

I was so wanting to do something special for the Ladies that help me with the Thursday food and Clothing pantry- wanted to do a darling luncheon like those ideas you gave in your last post but it didn't happen this year. I still think I can cram 48 hours in a 24 hour day but .....can't darn it!

Did pick up some darling little metal pitchers at Dollar tree and will plant them up a cute plant with a bow -

Good day, Laura! Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Delightful giveaway prizes - I'd love to enter! I'll post it on my sidebar.

I like your tribute to moms. My, I wish I had mine to tell her once again how much I love and appreciate her; to hug her, kiss her, and tell her how right she was about so many things I didn't want her to be right about. She's in my heart forever.

Enjoy a delightful weekend,
Marianne

Laura,
Your gathering of gifts is wonderful!
I shall bow out of contention since I won your beautiful gifts at Christmas.

I just returned from Stone Gable!

I both laughed and held a warm heart when I read what you wrote. I blogged about how I changed the chorus of Cinnamon Girl for Holland Grace today! I also live my life in song.
How blessed I am to know you, my friend!

Found your blog via your "Blessed to be Stressed" post. In the stresses of the past six weeks (accident & 24 day hospitalization of my teenage daughter) God has been with me. I am thankful her life was spared. Even though her injury is permanent, I am thankful she will be able to walk. I am thankful I am her mother and she is my daughter and that God is healing our family in many different areas. And I would love and use everything in this giveaway!

Karen said...

Hi Laura,

What a lovely group of giveaway items! I wouldn't turn down a single one of them.

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my post of Tulip Grove Plantation. I enjoy reading your posts; I've been following your blog for several months now. I'd be pleased if you'd like to follow me back. :)

I especially enjoyed the post for your wedding anniversary. You were DEFINITELY roughing it in Greece. Such a beautiful country, but I've read they are still quite primitive in many areas. I've also heard the people are very hospitable to visitors. Thanks so much for sharing your story!
