October Birthday Giveaway!


Today is Friday and it’s time for the next prize reveal in my October Birthday Giveaway!  I feel like maybe I was a little too sneaky in revealing the first prize on Wednesday, so I will show it again in this post.  But first, let me show you how I finished up my whimsical Halloween vignette.

Ta-da!  I added some kooky Halloween figures I found at the Dollar Tree (a long time ago), a “Happy Halloween” sign, and some of the crocheted pumpkins (pattern by Cynthia Banessa) I’ve been making.  Here’s a close-up.


These witches, and one warlock, are gathering to celebrate the holiday!  Don’t worry about the spiders, those are their pets!  I also covered the shelf this is sitting on in burlap.  I’m thinking I might dye it black or gray.  What do you think?  Here’s a close up of my “tree eyes”.


These beads were in my collection and, no, I don’t remember where I got them!  Here’s some similar ones in lots of colors.  I just added them to a head pin (hee, hee) and twisted the end to hang from my branch.  Now my tree is looking at you!  Okay, on with the prizes, and the giveaway, and such!

October Birthday Giveaway

In yesterday’s post I showed you the first prize, this fabulous multi-stranded cowl made by yours truly, me!


But wait, there’s more!  You get to choose what color you’d like and I’ll make one just for you!  The other color choices are shown below and you can click on the pictures for a closer look.  By the way, this yarn contains wool just in case anyone has allergies!

(If you are viewing this in an email, you will have to go to the blog to see the choices.  Amazon links are not allowed in emails.  Boo!)

So, for the first entry, just let me know in the comments what color is your favorite.  Super easy right?  Don’t worry I’ll review all the details at the end!  Now for today’s prize reveal.


Boot cuffs!  I made these using Knit Picks Comfy Sport in Lilac Mist.  This is 75% pima cotton and 25% acrylic which makes them so very soft!  The pattern is from Creative Threads by Leah.  This thread comes in many colors, but these are the ones I have in stock.


So to enter today, tell me in the comments which color is your favorite!  The boot cuffs in the picture above are a size Large, so if you like that color, that’s the size they will be.  If you like one of the other colors, I will make them to your size specifications.  Remember, Christmas is around the corner, so these would be a great stocking stuffer!  Now, let’s review.

Rules and such

Yes, there’s always rules!  Not so much rules, as stipulations?

  • This giveaway is only open to residents of the 48 contiguous United States.  Sorry everyone outside those limits, shipping is a pain!
  • One vote per item.  Meaning if you vote for a color on Facebook, voting in the comments below for the same thing does not get you an extra entry.

I think that’s all as far as rules go!

That’s it for today, so don’t forget to cast your vote to win!  I’ll be announcing the winner on Monday – my birthday!  Hope y’all have a fabulous weekend and check out the boot sale going on at Cents of Style.  Boots starting at $14!!  Whoopee!!
