bucket give-away!!


Hope you're not tired of hearing about the burlap buckets...
You've all been so GOOD to me! I thought it was about time to send you a little appreciation, beyond just words. It's time for a GIVE-AWAY! Please leave a comment on this post if you'd like to receive this small burlap bucket made from mixed materials. It's lined with my favorite unbleached cotton... which has a rustic weave and linen characteristics. The handles are linen and the outer shell is a recycled coffee sack. You have until Friday at midnight EST. I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner, and will announce this weekend. A little surprise will be tucked inside.

I can't thank you enough for your great feedback and support as I figure out this new world of Etsy... wish I could send each of you a bucket filled with hugs! That may sound a little sappier than my usual style, but I really mean it!
