My Pay-It-Forward Giveaway

Last month, I won 4 pretty plates

in Marty's

"Pay-It-Forward" giveaway on her blog,
A Stroll Thru Life.

Thank you, Marty!!

In order to comply, I am going

to give away 3 hemstitched linen

hand towels that I

will monogram with your choice of initial.

The above towel is an example that is

going to Marty as a "thank you" gift.

Shhhh.....don't tell her!

The one above is done with a different frame

from the Martha Pullen IEC collection.

It also has a silk ribbon woven through

the hemstitched area.

A towel like this would make a nice

hostess or Christmas gift.

It looks pretty hanging over

an antique washstand or

near the guest bath sink.

This is my way of saying "thank you" &

to pay it forward to all who

have welcomed me

so warmly to blogland & have

made this such a fun & creative endeavor!

To be entered once into the drawing

to win one of these towels with

monogramed initial of your choice

all you have to do is leave a

comment to this post.

If you are a follower,

you will automatically be entered

a second time into the drawing.

If you're not, I would love to have you join me.

If you mention my giveaway on

YOUR blog with a link back to

"The Gazebo House"

you will be entered

a third time.
(please let me know if you do this.)

I finally got my button to work (whew!)

so you are welcome to add that to

your blog if you would like.
Everyone may enter whether you have a blog or not. If you don't have a blog, please leave your email address in your comment (with the @ changed to 'AT" for security) so I will know how to contact you if you win.

Giveaway ends at 5 pm EST on

Wed. Oct. 14th

I will have my grandson, Charlie

draw the 3 winning entries

since that's his birthday!

Oh & I almost forgot to tell you,

each winner will also get a

copy of Paula Deen's magazine

Holiday Baking, 2009

Remember, if you win

you also have to agree to

"Pay it Forward" & hold a

giveaway of your own.

Thanks for participating & Good Luck!


  1. Oh, I saw this, I am so thrilled, I can't wait to get my towel. That is the most thoughtful thing and the beautiful linen and monogram are so stunningly done. What a precious and considerate thing to do. I really do thank you very much. Hugs, Marty

  2. Good luck with your PIF Rett, they are lovely gifts, I'm sure you will get loads of entries ... I had so much fun doing mine!

  3. Rett, these are lovely gifts. I like to use these little towels for various things when I entertain. I'd be thrilled if I'm one of your winners! I'm already a follower and will put your give away on my sidebar. Thank you for entering me in this give away. ~ Sarah

  4. I came back to sign up for this beautiful tea towel! What a nice giveaway!

    I'm a follower!


  5. Well now I just MUST comment on this and enter this giveaway -- what lovely guest towels. The monograms are gorgeous!
    I thought I was already a follower -- but I am not...
    But I will be in moments.

  6. The monogrammed towels are lovely...and so was your tablesetting! Loved what you did with th eapothocary jar as a centerpiece

  7. The tea towel is beautiful. It would also be beautiful made into a pillow.

    I would also pay it forward. I could give away one of my Halloween garlands. I'll keep my fingers crossed.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I read them all & each one is so very special to me & I try really hard to return the visit!
