May Giveaway!!



Hello and thanks for dropping by! (and a super special welcome to everyone who's visiting from Sew,Mama,Sew!) It's finally here - my first GIVEAWAY! I love entering blog contests and have been lucky enough to win a few, so I thought I'd join in the fun with the May Giveaway Day organized by Sew,Mama,Sew.

So, here's what's up for grabs:



This is the Orange Blossom Dress and I think your little girl will look pretty darn cute in it! It is a variation of this top and this dress and it's perfect for wearing as a summery dress, layering over tanks and tees, or as a tunic over jeans or leggings. The size is also very customizable as the straps can be tightened or loosened, and the scrunchiness of the front can be adjusted for more or less coverage. It is handmade from a vintage-inspired floral print cotton and features a sweet little tomato orange pinstripe pocket for keeping little toys, rocks, seashells, or other treasures.




So, how do you enter to win? Just leave a comment below. Easy peasy. If you're feeling chatty, I'd love for you to tell me a bit about yourself like where you're from, what you or your little girl's favourite colour is, or favourite summertime activity... whatever you'd like to share. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you (leave your email address or ensure I can find your contact info via Blogger). If I can't get a hold of the winner, I'll draw another name. ONE comment per person please. BUT.. you can gain 3 EXTRA entries by doing any of the following:

+1 extra entry if you follow my blog
+1 extra entry if you visit my Etsy shop (feel free to let me know if you have a favourite item)
+1 extra entry if you share this giveaway on your own blog or Facebook page
(Please leave an extra comment for each additional entry letting me know if you did any of the above.)

This contest is open until Wednesday, May 25th (end of the day) and the winner will be randomly selected and announced the next day. The contest is open to anyone, anywhere in the world and the winner can choose the size of the dress (available in 2/3, 4, 5/6). I will ship out the dress by May 30th. 
That's all folks! Now get to it and good luck!
