4th of July Wreath + Giveaway! {closed}

 Happy Saturday my sweet friends!
I have to tell you...your response last week to my previous post...just wow.  You have no idea what it did for my heart to have your full support and understanding. It actually made me want to post all the more which of course...misses the entire point.  But it meant so much to me.

I am so sorry I have not responded to any of you by email. Your precious messages have been read and reread numerous times.  I actually have been too busy working on this ruffly and pretty 4th of July wreath so that I can give it away to ONE OF YOU!

You guys might remember my other ruffly wreaths like this one and and this one.  But I wanted to make one that was festive for the 4th of July and get it up on the blog so that I could get it to the winner before the fireworks start. Timeliness, is sadly...not my strong suit.
I just love ruffles.  They can prettify just about anything.  And this wreath just screams summery happiness to me! I love that is mimics a flag with the smaller white ruffles creating the look of stars on the blue part. And the best thing?  My girls helped me make this.  Because they are budding, crafty geniuses...that's why.  It was loads of fun and I am so excited that one of you could win it.
Since I am feeling all mushy and gooey on the inside with love for you precious people, I make no demands on this giveaway.  Only that you leave a comment and tell me where you would put it or who you might give it to to bless someone else.  (Is it awful that if it were me, I would so want to keep it for me, me, me?  Good thing I have two sitting on my front doors in white.)
If you want to follow along...well that is just fine and wonderful because I would sure love to meet you!
I do have fun things to share on this blog and I am working on some 4th of July fun that I hope to photograph and post about in time. :)
Here I go again with the ruffles. I just can't help it.
Let's just have a moment of silence for ruffles, shall we?  They are worthy of such contemplation.
All righty.  Giveaway info...

Just so we are clear. :)

Leave a comment telling me where you would put it or who you might give it to.
That's it.
It will end by midnight Thursday June 14th.
I will announce the winner Friday June 15th.
If I get a lot of entries, I will make another one (that can be used any time of the year) and do another giveaway later in the summer.
***I can only mail this within the UNITED STATES***
{So sorry to all my international friends! :( }
Good luck sweet friends!

  3. Love it :) Would be the perfect decor for our door to our little apartment in Sunny VA! My fiance is trying to get me to book the 4th of July 2013 for our wedding next year... he's that into being an American haha! I think this is a wreath even he would enjoy.

    Thanks for the opportunity to try to win.

  5. Those ruffles are so adorable! Since I'm the only girl in a household of boys, I could use a little extra girly-ness. This little beauty would look great on my front door all summer long!

  8. I love it and it would go right on my front door! ;) If I did give it away it would go to my mom. You did a great job!

  9. Of course, I would LOVE it too! But I think this might have to be a gift for my sister. She definitely trumps me in the love of all things ruffle-y and pretty. Not that I don't love it... it's just that she's the first person who came to mind when you asked to whom it might be given!! So beautiful!

  10. So cute! I have been looking to make a wreath for the 4th for my front door. This one is beyond my abilities- so if I won, I would have to keep it for myself!

  11. That wreath is so cute, I would proudly hang it on my front door! As far as giving it away... are you kidding me?! I couldn't part with it!!

  12. I would hang in on our recently (last year) rebuilt front porch! I must admit the Valentine's Day wreath (not handmade, sadly) is still twined up with wire there, so it would give me an excuse to swap. It's gorgeous! (ggrossatoptonlinedotnet)

  27. I would love to hang the wreath in my living room above my mantel.

    As a side note, I just found you through pintrest and read your infertility story. I also have PCOS and empathize with your struggles. I was lucky enough to conceive naturally and every day feel so blessed for my daughter. I am so glad your story had a happy ending (two of them!) and thank you for sharing it.

  39. I would love to give this to my mother who just began chemo to fight recurrent breast cancer and is having a difficult time. I think this would be so great to have hanging on her front door as a nice reminder of the courage, strength and hope that not only our country represents, but also that God will provide her during this trying time. Plus, it's so cute and fun it just makes you smile :)
    Thanks for all the inspirational ideas!!
