DIY Day and a Giveaway!!!

DIY Day @ ASPTL

Welcome to DIY Day on ASPTL! Every Thursday, we get together to share our newest DIY projects.

I'm really flexible about what constitutes a DIY project. Basically, any project that you've been working on. I want to see it! And so do my readers. We love projects!!!


Gail Pittman Dinnerware in Siena

Today we have a prize from Carmella at Southern Fried Dreams! Carmella is a sales rep for Southern Living at Home. If you're not familiar with Southern Living at Home, it is an at-home party company that sells BEAUTIFUL things for your home. I've had a party (or two) in my own home and have quite a few things from their catalog. I love them all.



Gail Pittman Dinnerware in Provence

Carmella has offered a set of 2 Gail Pittman dinner plates to one lucky winner (retail value $54.95 ).You choose the pattern...Either Siena or Provence. These would be gorgeous hanging on your wall! All you have to do is link up a DIY project to today's DIY Day post! Carmella will pick her favorite DIY Day post as the winner!

In addition to this fun prize, Southern Living at Home is having a HUGE sale on their Gail Pittman line of pottery. If you love this stuff, now is the time to get your hands on it. Some of the pieces are over 70% off!


Ruffle Bowl in Provence

You can see everything that is on sale by taking a look at the Gail Pittman Pottery Sale flyer. If you're interested in ordering, click here to visit Carmella and she'll give you the rundown on how to place an order.


Serving Set in Siena

As always with Southern Living at Home, there are some other great items that you can get at a great discount with a purchase of $29.95 or more.

Good luck and let's get this DIY Day started! If you have something to share, then just add your link below. Here are a few guidelines to help things run smoothly.

  1. Add a permalink to your specific post, not the main page of your blog.
  2. Include a short description of your DIY project in parenthesis after the name of your blog. For example, A Soft Place to Land (painted pumpkins).
  3. Link to this party from your post so everyone can get in on the fun.
  4. Double-check to make sure your link works and goes to the right page so it doesn’t get deleted! If you come back and see your link is gone, re-read these rules and try again. No worries!

Now let's see those projects!!!

Thanks for hosting this mega-party, Kimba! Seems that bloggers are just DIY'ers at heart, aren't we?

The SLaH plates are just beautiful. What a kind giveaway. But I don't envy her having to pick a favorite--so many wonderful projects to choose from!

Take care!

Hi Kimba,
Your DIY days are always a treat!
Please forgive me for messing up on my first linky and having to add a second. It's totally fine with me if you delete the first. Geeez, you'd think that I'd know Mr Linky by now!
Sorry!
Thanks for being a wonderful and understanding host!

Boy, am I late to the party this week! I just posted my son's 6th Birthday Party as my D-I-Y, all of which I pulled together in a week of ER trips with my husband (who is doing better thank goodness).

Yay for Carmella--great giveaway!

And thanks (as usual) to Kimba for hosting. I love DIY Day!
