Time for a Giveaway!

Middle of December I noticed that I had 200 followers (I prefer the term "Readers"). Actually, I am pretty sure it would have hit 200 long before then, but apparently I got to boring with my rambles and the numbers went up and down like a yo yo.
Anyway, I forgot about having a giveway. Things like that happen when you get my age.
Then in my attempt to declutter some more (I seem to be doing a better job of just moving things around), I ran across the shopping bag that contained these little goodies. Bought these a while back on sale at a great price. I know many of you people in the land of blog really like toile, so thought I would share one of them.

On with the details. The gift or prize (whatever you want to call it) will be the winner's choice of one (1) of the following toile tablecloths.
No. 1 - The pattern is a grayish blue color and is the largest of the two - 70 x 126 ins.

Click picture to enlarge.
No. 2 - The pattern is what I would call a brick red, and is 70 x 90 ins.
Click picture to enlarge.

I don't know this for a fact, but they appear to have the same pattern on them. I think it is just the way they are folded, that they appear to be different. I am not going to unfold them to find out, as I will never get them refolded and tied back up - remember what happens when you "unfold" a road map?

How do you enter the giveaway, you ask? Just leave a comment on this post, letting me know which one you would like to receive if you win.
If you mention this giveaway on your blog, let me know and I will throw your name in the hat a second time.
Deadline for entries is Midnight, Wed., 2/2/2011, Central Time.
Sorry, but due to postal rates, the giveaway is limited to residents in the United States. :(

Congrats on 200 Glenda!
I would choose the red because it fits with my decor but I love them both!
Yipee, I hope I win!

Divine Theatre said...

Funny, in another blog I referred to myself as a toile-oholic! I love the stories they tell!
If I had my choice it would be the Red Toile, that way when my husband spills spaghetti sauce it wouldn't show up! LOL!
I will put you on my blog immediately
Thank you for the opportunity to win such lovely tablecloths.

ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh! I would LOVE to win the red one! (my table is too small for the blue one) I'm a toile LOVER! What a wonderful giveaway! Congratulations on your 200 followers---glad I'm one.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Congrats on 200 followers!! It can sneak up on you! I love both colors but I think I would go with the red also. Thanks for offering such a nice giveaway! hugs, Linda

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Glenda I added your giveaway to my sidebar.

PAT said...

I like the blue and it is long enough for the farmhouse table, so that is the one I would choose, should I be lucky enough to win.

Gretchen said...

Hey Glenda-
THanks for all of the sweet comments and visits to my blog. :) You are always so kind...
I would definitely choose the blue toile,as that is what goes with my color choices in my home, but the red is lovely too. What a fun giveaway.
Congrats on your 200th reader/follower. It is something to be excited about for sure. I totally missed the mark on mine, as it happened during the Junk Bonanaza event last Fall and I was overwhelmed. I'll have to plan big for 300, if it ever happens. :)
Thanks again-

Donna said...

Congrats on 200 followers! I adore toile and I love them both but red goes with my decor! It's my b'day next week on the 4th ... I hope I win!

O.M.G........I am a toile fanatic and this is an awesome giveaway! The red matches my curtains, table runner, placemats, napkins (I don't have TOO much toile!)among other things. I'll mention you on my blog later, will let you know. My fingers are crossed! Thanks for being so generous! Kathleen

Sue said...

This is a wonderful giveaway! Congrats on the growing number of readers! I like them both, but I think I'd pick the blue one.

I'm a little behind in my blog reading, so glad you brought this one to my attention! Just my colors too. I'll tell you right now: I can't even follow a road map. Much less fold one back up!

Sue said...

Oh Glenda, You are giving away a wonderful prize! The blue toile tablecloth would fit my dining table so well and would be a great backdrop for my new blue dishes! I am pleased to be one of your 207 followers and even happier to be the recipient of all your sweet comments. :-)

mustard seeds said...

OOh, Glenda...pick me and I can save you the postage and just pick it up. I love them both, but I would choose #1 because it is longer, and I saw a rooster on it. You know I do love my roosters. But I really love red...decisions decisions.

This is so sweet of you, Glenda! My favorite color in my home is red so it's a no-brainer for me. What a beautiful pattern!

Congratulations on 200 'Readers'! What a wonderful milestone.

From the Kitchen said...

Congratulations on the 200! Yes, I do like toile. I think I'd go with the bluish gray or the red--I'm easy! I'd really like some of your warm(er) weather as well. We had an all-day snow here.


Karena said...

I love toile and both of those tablecloths are pretty but since I collect red and white transferware the red one would be my pick if I was lucky enough to win!

Have a great weekend,


Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Glenda, they are beautiful. I adore toile, and as of yet, don't own a toile tablecloth. I would feel so honored to win one and use it in a tablescape, (although I never win anything, I'll be happy for the person that does. ) :-)) Enjoy your w/k darling. hugs ~lynne~

Debbie said...

I just saw this on Saltbox Treasures. I love toile! I am currently decorating my kitchen in black toile with red accents.

Both colors are lovely and I'd be happy with either one. Red would probably go better with the colors I currently have, but in my opinion toile always goes with everything! Thanks so much for this opportunity.
