Birthday Giveaway and a Couple New Things

I know it hasn't been long since my Spring Fever Giveaway, but I decided to do another one during this dreary time of year when everyone is tired of cold and so anxiously awaiting for warm weather to arrive. My birthday is in one week, so it is the perfect time for a Birthday Giveaway! I will draw a winner next Thursday morning. Please don't post this on your blogs. It's just for regular readers and those that come by on their own. If you don't have a blog make sure to leave your email address for me when you leave a comment. Thanks! So here is what I'm giving away~
a cutting board
3 pantry cakes with cheesecloth
bird pinkeep
seed bag full of bay leaves
small set of stacking boxes
1803 Candles ~ Mom's Kitchen wax melters~they smell sooo good!
The lit candle in the picture is not included in the giveaway.
Just leave me a comment to be entered.I also got a fun package in the mail a few days ago from Pam at Baskets n Prims. We did a trade and here is what she sent me~
I love this little basket! Pam told me it has a Williamsburg handle and that she thought I would like it because it is Colonial looking and she was right ~ I absolutely love it!

She also sent me this tall weed basket that I wanted. I had this spot on the peg board in my bedroom waiting for it. It's just perfect! I love both my basket's Pam ~ Thank you so much! Go on over and check out Pam's wonderful selling blog The Primitive Basketcase.
I made something new for my bedroom yesterday afternoon. I was looking at a towel rack like this on Palmer Fall's yesterday morning trying to decide if I should buy one soon for my room and then I thought~ hey, I can build that pretty easy! So I did and I'm really happy with it. The pictures are a little dark~sorry!
