Summertime gardening GIVEAWAY!!

I'm back with the giveaway I promised! Here's a little bit of my reasoning behind why I chose to give this particular item. About a month ago, I set up a poll on my blog asking which of my items you would be most likely to purchase if you saw me at a craft show (which helped me greatly by the way, thank you so much to everyone who voted). Many of you voted for the mushroom garden stakes, which also happen to be the most hearted item in my etsy shop.


Click here to see the listing for these in my shop.

Since you all have shown these little guys so much love, I decided that somebody should take a few of them home for free! Two of them to be precise. But I wanted to have a little bit of fun with the gardening theme and add a few extra goodies into the mix...



The winner will receive the following:
♥ 2 mushroom garden stakes, hand-sculpted by me. (1 red and 1 green)
♥ 1 pair of strawberry patterned gardening gloves
♥ 1 pack of daisy seeds

The mushrooms are outdoor safe, so feel free to use them in a potted plant or directly in the ground. I hope this little gift set will bring a little bit of sunshine to the person who wins. :-)



How to enter:
I didn't offer extra entries for my first giveaway. But this time, I am! Here are the different ways to gain entries. Please leave a separate comment for each one.

♥ Leave a comment telling me what your favorite plant/flower is and why.
♥ Follow my blog. If you are already following, that counts too!
♥ Tweet about this giveaway. Comment with a link to your twitter profile.
♥ Blog about this giveaway. Leave a link to the post in a comment.

This contest is open to all countries, everyone is welcome to participate! The contest starts now and will end at midnight (U.S. central time) on Thursday, June 25th. I will draw a winner with a random number generator and post the winner on the 26th. Good luck, everybody!

I'm the first?!? I feel so honored! ;) My fave flower is a snapdragon simply because I have always loved opening and closing them since I was a wee tike :) Reminds me of summers in my grandparents' backyard :)

Stephanie Reed said...

I like snapdragons, too, but if I could only have one flower in my garden, it would be cornflowers, also called bachelor buttons. They're so easy to grow, the flowers are a gorgeous shade of blue, and goldfinches love the seeds.

My favorite flowers are Gerber Daisies. The only reason I can give for why I like them is that they are just absolutely gorgeous!

Not only I think this is too cute!! But wow, a giveaway open to all countries? I had to enter!

Margaret said...

I love tulips. They are the first flower that I planted in our yard.

Margaret said...

I follow you.

And I was following your blog before the giveaway! ;)

Carapace said...

Ooh,what a shiny-sweet giveaway! I have a soft spot for mushrooms, especially the dotted redcappy ones. They grow in our yard sometimes, but never so cute and petite!

My favorite plant...hmm. There are so many really cool ones! But I'll go with my favorite flowering plant, and say Prickly Pear. There are types around here that bloom all year, churning out fruit constantly! They're gorgeous blooms, too. Flowers, food, beautiful colors, and green in a drought-- beauty and brawn in one lovely plant!;D

I just have to say that it is sweet of you to create this lovely giveaway.

I must say that my most favorite flower is the Star Gazer Lily, it is such a delicate flower. I would love nothing more then to plant them in the backyard but it's not mine, lol.

I wish the winner good luck!

Estela said...

What a wonderful giveaway holly!!! i love your mushrooms so much!

littlepurpleroom said...

I got lost in link land and found your blog. I ended up reading the whole thing.
LOVE the mushrooms.

I have alot of fave flowers but my one true is the lilliput zinnia. They remind me of a happy cartoon flower.
When I see a bunch of them planted I half expect them to start swaying and singing.

Funkybella said...

Heather said...

How fun! I love those little mushrooms, so fun and summery!
My favorite flower (currently) is the rose. There are so many varieties, and I think the wilder the better ;) love getting them on clearance at the end of the season..... lotta bang for your buck ;)

I BLEED PINK said...

These little mushrooms are super cute. I don't have much of a green thumb, but I have kept my house plant alive for over a year (YAY).

vegkat said...

I love, love, LOVE daffodils (sp?) because they are the first flowers to poke up out of the Earth every spring. Right around Valentine's Day I know I can expect to see some green showing, and it helps me get through the last, tough part of winter!

idyll hands said...

My favorite plants are hostas and basil. I couldn't just pick one. I love hostas because I'm not a huge fan of a ton of different colors in my garden and hostas come in so many varieties of green - love them! Basil is a given, it's tasty and smells GOOD when you rub your hands around. It also comes in many varieties so it's perfect for me.

I totally need these mushroom stakes to put in my herb pots :)

Cristen said...

Hello! What a fun giveaway!Gardening is something that I really enjoy. I love love love flowers, but I do have two favorites...sunflowers and daisies! They are both my favorites because they are so cheerful and happy looking. You can't look at a sunflower or daisy and not smile. Well, at least I can't! :o)

I just found you becuase you entered MY giveaway, now I'm entering YOURS! ;) I love gerbera daisies, for the bright colors that are offered... but usually plant begonias because they stay looking nice the longest in my very shaded yard. ;)

Rose said...

You make such sweet things, im glad i came over to your blog. These little mushrooms you made are so cute!
I would love to enter your giveaway.
My favourite flowers are probably foxgloves because of their height and colour. And also camelias because of their delicate look and soft colours.

Thanks :)

Willow said...

My favorite flower is the dandelion, I know it's really a weed.
Its so sunny and bright when its in fool bloom, its hardy and can grow just about anywhere.
When it dies, you can have fun blowing the seeds aways and making wishes.
What other flower is enjoyable in death?
