500 Follower Giveaway!

Giveaway now closed - winner to be announced shortly.
Thanks for coming by!


And the winner is Amy from Bumble Bee Lane Cottage.

I just love giveaways, don't you?  

I enjoy finding something I think you'll like and showing you how much I appreciate you following Sweet Bee Cottage or visiting or just buzzing in.

So what did I find this time?

Well.........

this!

A Martha Stewart round wire metal tray......
A vintage embroidered tea towel in blue.......
A cherry scone mix.......
And a box of my favorite breakfast  tea - Irish Breakfast tea......
Plus just a few other treats I think you might like!

So what do you have to do to enter?

1.  For one chance, leave a comment with a way for me to get in touch with you. You do not have to be a follower.  Of course, you can follow along if you want!  

2.  For a second chance, take my giveaway button and put it on your blog and leave a comment letting me know you have done this.  Each comment counts as an entry.

3.  Open to U.S. and Canada only - sorry international friends.  But I'll have an international giveaway when it's my blogiversary in September.

4.  Giveaway ends on Saturday, August 6 at midnight PDT.  
So thank you from the bottom of my heart!  Your visits mean so very much to me.

  24. Hello! Thank you for your nice note. It made my night! To answer our question about a needle to use when you sew on paper... I never had a problem with a normal needle but I did start using a "denim needle"... sold at Hancock fabrics etc for my sewing machine just in case and it works great.

    It's just sort of a generic needle that fits all machines

    Lovely g-way!!!

  25. Holy Moley Ms. Bee....500 followers. I'm so impressed. I just looked at my "peeps" and realized someone had dropped me :-( I wish they'd let me know who. I was sad. I guess I better get busy with making my blog more interesting.
    Cute stuff for the wonderful giveaway. I'm wondering what those cherry scones taste like.
    I hope you are have a fabulous summer off and I can see that you are keeping busy as a Bee!
    Hugs...
