I have seen many other bloggers do Give-Aways. I wanted to take part in spreading this joy as well. I just love giving presents!!!! Anyway, I waited until the time was right. So when my blog hit around 50 followers, I thought NOW is the time! Here’s the scoop as to why and what I chose.
Summer here in Cape Cod has been lovely, the last few days we have been spared the humidity. Such a gift. During those hot and humid days I would do a little shopping to stay out of the heat. I discovered the best soap made right here in Cape Cod. I enjoy supporting local businesses, so I purchased a few bars. Well, I fell in love! The soap is made by Summer House and they come in a large variety of scents created from natural items found here in the Cape! I went back to the store and I chose 2 of these soaps as part of my Give-Away, Ocean Scrub and Summer Hydrangea. The Ocean Scrub is awesome, its minty scent wakes you up and its salty texture sloughs off dead skin! It’s great! Cape Cod is covered with hydrangeas, so it is only fitting that this lightly scented soap be part of my Give-Away!
With these 2 soaps as my inspiration I sewed one of my Gosh Golly Goods cosmetic bags to reflect the colors that I think of when I think of Cape Cod. It has a zip top and an inside pocketed panel.
I picked up several yards of Liesl Gibson’s fabrics (Lisette) from Joann Fabrics to create this. Great colors for the Cape.

So to enter for the Give-Away, all I need you to do is comment on this entry in my blog. Tell me what item of clothing is your “goto piece”. Something that you feel never lets you down. You know, that thing you can put on when you are feeling you are having a “fat” day and nothing looks good. I would say that for me, right now, it would be my black jersey v-neck dress. I can dress it up or down and I can hide my belly in it when I am feeling a little chubbier than normal. Comments must be received by Sunday, August 5th at Midnight.
Winners will be announced Monday August 6th. If you are one of my international visitors, you are also eligible!
When you comment please make sure that I have a way of contacting you either through your blog or an e-mail.
Thanks and Good Luck!
