CANNING APRON GIVEAWAY

It's time for a giveaway!  

Times two!

We found these at the store the other day and they were just too cute to pass up.  They are canning themed aprons.  I even picked up one for myself.  Be sure and read the note below in red, there are special instructions for entering. 




This is the first one...showing some canning jars with tomatoes in them and the phrase:

"I can...because I can"



This is the second one...showing a canning jar with a crown and the phrase:

"Canning Queen"

(no this is NOT the one I picked up for myself, LOL)

 They are 100% cotton, made in China, measure 26"x33" and say "one size fits all".  Nothing fancy or high end but they sure are fun.

As always (and for those new to the blog) the rules are as follows:

We'd like you to be a friend of the farm" (we love having followers) but that's not required.  Please leave a comment here on this thread letting us know that you want to be entered.  Remember, be sure your name or your username is on your comment so that we can have something to write down on the slips of paper when we have the drawings.

ALSO, you need to say in your comment WHICH one you'd like to be entered for.  We realize everyone's tastes are different and if you don't mind winning either one, then just say either.  But if you don't like one or the other and would rather win the one you like, just say which one in your comment and we'll hold a separate drawing for each one.

"Because I can"
 or 
"Canning Queen" 
or 
"Either"

The contest will run for nine days, until 11:59pm, next Sunday night, April 19th, the end of the weekend.  At that time, we'll randomly pick one winner for each Apron, post the results and the winners will need to email us with their shipping address at that time.  

We'll ship your apron directly to you within a few days.

Because this is a lightweight item, the giveaway is open to everyone.

One entry per person.

Thanks and good luck!

(leave your request below, we don't reply to the comments here so we can just have a list of the names entered)

CONTEST HAS NOW ENDED, DRAWING WILL BE THIS WEEK AND WINNERS WILL BE NOTIFIED VIA EMAIL OR ON A POST HERE.

HI! ::waving sheepishly::

Love the give away, and the cute aprons. May I please be entered for either? Thanks guys!

I love the whole bee set up and the new barns - and OMGosh I have to get caught up. I know thing I have been dying to tell you. . . .drumroll. . . .we got a kitty. Made me think of you both when Steven brought her home for Wallene. Her name is Capt. Snickers Meow Meow - and although we have had her quite a while, I just can't help but think of you two and your kittehs. heehee

Perhaps if I ever put up another blog post I may post a pic's of her beautiful self. I call her Witterhead [don't ask...I have no idea either] but she really likes when her Momma calls her Babygirl. Follows Wallene around like a puppy. I have absolutely NO idea what I am going to do with her when Wallene leaves for college in the fall [that's even more good news :) ] That kitteh will be inconsolable.

Anyhoodle...I may not blog or comment, but never doubt for a moment that I am not thinking of you both fondly - you are always in my thoughts. Hugs! SkippyMom
