~ A Fanciful Little Giveaway ~

To commemorate my 300th post, and to celebrate the holiday season, I'm having a wee giveaway! 

A couple of weeks ago, I contacted my blogger friend Noel, a very talented artist and founder of Fanciful Designs, to buy a few of her paper box creations for a giveaway (and also one for myself)!  I have been coveting Noel's French-inspired designs since I first saw her lovely Etsy shop!


Noel was so gracious and offered to go in with me on the giveaway!  So, we are giving away three small square boxes from her Etsy shop (shown above and below), and one larger round box (not shown...I will photograph this tomorrow night).   

All the boxes have a Christmas style, but are so elegant and timeless you can display them all year.  Right now, I have them all sitting in my china cabinet and they look so pretty it will be hard to part with them!


The wax seals come in ivory, red, and gold.


These boxes are little jewels – so dainty and sophisticated, like all of Noel's work.  I also thought they would be an easy giveaway as they are small and lightweight for mailing. 

To enter the draw for one of four boxes, all you have to do is leave me a comment!


I will draw the winners on Saturday, December 5th at 12 noon (Mountain  Time), so I can get these mailed out before Christmas.  Winners in North America will likely receive their boxes by Christmas – others may be a little late!

 

Good luck!  

And if you want to buy one for yourself, please check out Noels' Etsy shop!

    Oh wow :) They are so cute!! Especially the red one :) I love the squareness with the delicate strings and the wax sealing :) I visited her site and wow, tons of really cute things :)

    How are you doing with all the Christmas stuff? Do you spend it with your husbands family or do you go home? Just don't get too stressed over it!

    Over here it's -7 and A is hoping that we get some snow asap :P

    Take care of yourself!

  35. Terri, I thought I left this comment earlier but I don't see it, so here I am again.....Sorry if this is redundant!

    Thank you so very much for your insight and kind words on my post about blogging.I love reading blogs and writing my own and just cannot seem to find balance - what I mean is, I want to spend so much more time in this wonderful world of creative, very, very nice people, but find every day reality takes on this huge life of it's own and I have to deal with it! That being said, I am so happy I started Hill Country House and am amazed at the connections we have all made that never would have occurred if it weren't for the internet and this thing called blogging! So, you being one of those very nice, creative people, thank you so very much. Now about that giveaway, put my name in the hat and have a great holiday season! xo Ann
