My 100th Post Giveaway & A Custom Order

Today is my 100th post. It's hard to believe it, but it's true. I've had so much fun with my blog. Blogging for me, combines many loves. I love to write; I love to share about my family; I love to share about our homeschooling experiences; I love to share decorating and home improvement projects. I have "met" so many nice people through blogging and the CS forum. I'm honored, excited, and humbled to know that it's enjoyed by others as well. So please know that I don't take it for granted and I appreciate each and every one of you that stop by to visit my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! :)

And now to celebrate that 100th about a giveaway? As tempted as I was to make it a Christmas one, I held back! (That way I get to do another one that's Christmas related later, right?) This is a fall giveaway. Here's what the winner gets:

It includes a burgundy distressed table bench made by my hubby (primmed by me), a set of fall blocks made by me, a leaf resin bowl, a package of faux acorns and faux leaves. (runner not included)

Here's a closer look at the table bench. It is antiqued burgundy. It measures 11 1/4" wide x 20" long x 5" high.

This fall blessing block set was my first attempt at making my own set of blocks. I freehanded it is amateur, but I hope you like them anyway!

And the bowl is in the shape of a leaf. It is made of resin.

Also included will be the colorful autumn leaves to sprinkle around and a bag of faux acorns.

Here's the rules: Leave me a comment if you would like to enter (bloggers and non-bloggers welcome). Within the continental United States, we will pay shipping. If you live outside the continental U.S., you are welcome to enter and should your name be drawn, we will pay shipping up to $15.00. Any cost to ship over and above that would be your responsibility. I really wanted to include everyone, so I hope this helps. Since we are gearing our Etsy store toward small unfinished wooden decorative items and small furnishings, we would also like to know in this comment...If you were buying wooden decorative items and small furnishings unfinished (to be finished, customized by your self to your own preference of color and distressing), what items would you be interested in? That gets you entered once. If you would be so nice as to post this giveaway on your blog, I'll also add your name in two more times for a total of three times. A name will be drawn out on Thursday, October 9th, at 10:00 a.m. (central time). I will announce it soon afterwards. Please remember if you leave an anonymous comment as a non-blogger, to leave me a way to contact you if you win (an email address).

And since a new blogging friend of mine, Dianntha (Ohio Farm Girl) agreed to let me share this with you, I'd like to show you a custom order of two sets of shutters that she purchased for her garden shed.....well this is one set of them anyway.

Now Dianntha and her family have been very busy working around and on their home and garden shed lately. She bought these shutters unfinished, then customized them with paint to match her home. Click here to see the shutters on her garden shed. Thank you so much for your order, Dianntha and for letting us share! And everyone can stay a future date, she'll show you something else that was part of that custom order that she's working on....and I can't wait to see it customized myself)! Thanks, Dianntha!

Since Jenn has visited my site, and I have been visiting hers, I am really starting to like this Prim style. I never really thought about it before and now I am hooked!
I will post your giveaway on my holiday blog.
Please enter me, as I need to start on my collection of Prim items! LOL. As for what I would like to see more of? EVERYTHING! LOL

Linda said...

Hi Tammy!

Congrats on the 100 posts! I fnd your reasons for blogging so much like my own reasons. And I love to come here and see what you are up to in decorating and crafting.

I have a table bench already so I am going to ask that you not enter me and let someone else have a beter chance of winning yours. What a great giveaway!

I would be more apt to by something unfinished so I could put my touch on it - but I am a crafter. I bet it depends on who crafts and who doesn't! Good luck with your items in your etsy!

Anonymous said...

Tammy I adore your give away items. Please enter me in your drawing. I can see these treasurers on my table already. I can do without the runner because I have one just like it to set underneath the table bench! So see, I should have this.

I love everything you and Jason have created thus far. I think that benches and shelves would be a great addition to your ETSY store. I would also be more tempted to buy things finished since I really lack the talent of painting and distressing.

Congrats on your 100th posting. Waiting for number 200!!

You have the most beautiful home and family:) God has truly blessed you! I can't wait until you have your etsy shop!!! The things that I would be interested in are shelves, table benches, hapkin holders and wooden pumpkins just to name a few. I am not crafty so finished would be better for me.

Tammy said...

Tammy what a great giveaway. Good luck to all who enter. I will post this on my generous folks blog as well. Thank you for such a great fall giveaway.

Colleen said...

Oh, wow! Count me in, my friend!

As for what type of items I would order unfinished: Prim shelves, peg racks, small display cupboards, table benches ... that sort of thing. I have a hard time finding these items around here unfinished. The quality is often poor and the design is often not quite "right."

Beautiful creations as always, Tammy! I'll post about your giveaway this evening.

Have fun :)

Mom in Sahuaritaville said...

Please enter me. I know just were they would go too. :)

I'll be posting your giveaway on blog.

Myself, I would probably purchase unfinished. I like to make this match my decor. However, my mom (who is sitting here) says she would buy something finished rather than unfinished. (( She's not a 'crafter'))

Dawn said...

Tammy, count me in on your 100th post giveaway!! Its darling, I'd love to win. Thanks Dawn

Angie said...

Hi Tammy,

What a generous giveaway! Please enter me! Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a heartfelt note. It meant so much to me. Hubby is still looking for a job..but he is finally starting to get some good responses. It looks like we are going to have to move from Ohio because there is just nothing here. That should be interesting but kind of exciting. I will keep ya up to date. I like the idea of sanded boards for signs that people can request sayings for or colors for. Or, maybe letter blocks in different colors. Those are hard to find unfinished. I am really happy for you guys and hope more business comes your way.

God Bless,


p.s. wanted to let ya know..I found this cute Little House on the Prairie photo album you might like..It's on my selling if ya wanna check it out..thought you might like something like that..

Teresa said...

Congrats Tammy on your 100th post I love reading your blog everyday.

What a wonderful fall giveaway love the table bench it would look good on my dining room table. Can you add my name to the drawing also?

Would love to also see dough boards and napkin holders.

Daffodil Hill said...

basketsnprims said...

Hi, Tammy! I would love to be entered in your giveaway, it's awesome. I will post it on my blog right away. I like the table benches, Mary mentioned dough bowls, simple blocks, and signs. The signs would have to be finished but a bench I would prefer unfinished. Thanks so much for your generosity. You & your hubby do awesome work.


Mistress Meeyee said...

want all these goodies and I hope I will win them!

Tomatoe Creek Prims said...

Tammy...I just love your posts:) Congrats on your 100th too! Please enter me, I'll add this to my blog later this afternoon.
I would love to see a bowl rack unfinished I want one so bad:)
I love the blocks too they look great!

Congratulations on your 100th Post! I love all the items that you are giving away in your giveaway, so please also enter me in your giveaway! Thank You!

The table bench is sooo nice! I love the color! I also love your blocks that you made!

On your Etsy shop, I'd like to see some wood covers for over 4 slice toasters... that looks like it has several drawers on the front. I think someone from the CS forum posted a picture of one a while back. I thought it looked pretty neat!

Have a wonderful day Tammy!

Love & Blessings,

Station 521 said...

Great Giveaway! What would I like to see...I love those shutters and I'm always a sucker for benches of any kind and size!

Congratulations on your 100th post!

Katy said...

oh my goodness gracious...i SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO want to win! (can you hear my desperation?? LOL) I totally love the things you are giving away!!! Please sign me up!

I already love the shutters you sell...but I think my main love is benches....big ones, small ones etc. Or even if you make framed windows or mirrors that we could distress/stain/ paint the frame....and then hang it on the wall...that would be so great!

Anyway..thank you for this wonderful giveaway!!! I am crossing my fingers! xoxo

Anonymous said...

Hi Tammy!
ohhh, your giveaway looks wonderful!! Please enter me in the drawing, my email is

As far as the etsy store goes, I think those stove top covers, small wooden boxes (like the one you got at the thrift store), candle holders that you hang on the wall (big enough to hold the size of a Yankee Candle size jar), recipe boxes, remote control boxes, tissue box covers, appliance covers. Since Jason is so good at woodworking, these small wooden items would be easy for him to do. So far, he has done a wonderful job and you have also with the finishing!!
keep up the good work!!

have a great evening.

I think that if you go too large shipping for you guys would be crazy! Oh also, maybe some kind of fixin holder, oh prim totes too!?! I love black, red, and mustard. that is what my house has! I hope this helps! Many hugs!

Marie said...

This is a super giveaway... count me in. I love that table bench and I have been covetting all my blogger friends table benches for soooo long..... I think your Etsy will do great!!! I love your shutters, too.

carolyn at cranberry crossings: said...

What an awesome give away! The table bench alone is a great prize in itself! Please enter me!

For your store, I think giving the customer a choice is great, but some people can't visualize the finished product. So I think you should also have some already made for those people.

I love your blocks. I think short Bible verses would be adorable on them. And seasonal blocks are always a winner. I also love to see words of encouragement and thought, such as " make your own happiness" and "don't be afraid to dream."

Have a grat day!

Well I think you and your hubby do so well with small wood items (big,too): shelves, small decorative boxes, small benches/stools. A do-it yourselfer would like unfinished but I think most people would want their items finished. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Awesome give aways - I love the bench. I do buy unfinished wood items on occasion and working on some of my own in Cherry. I love benches, bowls and wooden signs. I prefer my wood items natural. I like the look of distressed but haven't mastered the techniques.

Congrats on your 100th post. What a super giveaway, thanks for offering it. I'd be interested in shelves, quilt shelves & stands, benches. I'm glad I found your blog, wishing you many more blog posts!

Hi Tammy,

I want to start off first by telling you that I just LOVE the shutters that you made for Dianntha (Ohio Farm Girl). They gave that finishing touch...WOW!

Please enter me into your blog giveaway and I also added it to my blog.

I prefer to have my wooden items already painted but if I purchase in not done then I will get the job and paint it to what I want. But isn't it so much quicker when you get it completed???
