Oh boy! The picture looks just like my husband. I would make an frame out of old barn wood and hang it above my fire place.

The hand towels would be perfect in my rustic bathroom.

I would put the scale on the counter as a book-end for 'Old looking'/vintage cook books.

Kathy said...

I love the pig print, I'd hang it in my kitchen right over the scales that would be sitting on my counter top. The hand towels would look cute in my bathroom. Love both of your blogs.

Deborah said...

I'd give it to my wife who would know exactly how to use it to accessorize.

Shell said...

I would use them all in my dining room in an MMS inspired vignette. Tweeted about your giveaway & following you there also. Yay I can leave a comment now woohoo! Thanks

Most of the things would be integrated into my white country kitchen with black cabinets. My daughter has the only scale I ever purchased. And the monogrammed towels would be interesting to own and try my hand at the satin stitch. Of course the pig print would need a red frame, my favorite color. Very nice give-away. Peggy

Weeelllll first I would hug them to my bosom and do the Happy Dance *winks* Then I would put the towels in my guest bathroom, the scale in the kitchen as part of a vignette and the Yorkshire pig would be hung above said vignette. So pick me whoohoo! Lol! Vanna

Be still my heart! I am a vintage girl...In fact I just did a post of all the vintage in our home!

Yep, I'm a follower!
The scale would get to sit next to my pink Fiesta pitcher! A happy home for it!
The linen will be beautiful in my secretary where I use vintage shhet music as a backdrop!
The piggie? Oh, he will look adorable framed and sitting next to my farm print by Queener Stovell!

There, I decorated a few more places in my home!
xo, misha

Love your blog and am now a follower! I would love to win the giveaway. The scale would sit happily on my ole enamel-top island in the kitchen and hold a bowl of Granny Smiths. The towels would be displayed in my guest bath and the pig would stand watch on top of the fridge! Too cute! Michelle

I'm assuming we are to leave separate comments for each direction so...
I'd love to have those scales. If you only knew how long I've been wanting some! And I have a friend with HL initials so I'd pass the pretty linens on to her. And I'd definitely frame the cute little pig print for my kitchen.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Just told a few friends to come join!

Great giveaway! I am now following your blog. If I won this contest I would display these great items in my Country Kitchen!

Cheryl said...

What a great giveaway. I was just in an antique shop yesterday hunting for a scale like this one...too pricey. I would love one to display things on in my 1830's farm kitchen. And the pig! My sisters and I have had a running joke for years about "Pink Pigs" (a long story...) and I would love to win this to add to my collection. The towels are lovely vintage linens. So glad i found your blog...have become a Follower and told two friends about you already! I'm "in it to win it!"

You're giving away such lovely things! I would love to give my husband the pig print. He's obsessed with cooking and eating everything pork. Bacon, Sausage, Ribs, Ham, Pork Belly, Pork Hocks...the list goes on and on. But he also appreciates the intelligence of the animal as well. Thanks for offering this great giveaway!


A Cottage Muse said...

Love your blog...looking forward to catching up as I am a new follower!

Great giveaway...would love the scale for my kitchen that just had a little makeover. Always need a little black in each room to anchor it!

Hugs, Cindy

Cindy said...

I would love to put that shabby old scale on my kitchen counter. I would put the linen towels in my bathroom rolled up in a wire basket with a few other special little bath items.
I would then put the cute little Yorkshire pig picture in a frame and hang it in the kitchen, also.
Thanks for the chance to win!
Hugs, Cindy
