Birthday Give Away For Dotty Hop Day

Happy Dotty Hop Day! Every Tuesday, I show off my DOTS!
Today, I'm showing you another multi-color Button Ball Garland that I made and I'm giving this one away in celebration of my 50th Birthday next week! (I'm so excited to turn 50!) I'll be adding other things to this give away so staaaaay tuned! ☺ I have this garland hanging in front of my hutch for photographing purposes but wouldn't one look cute on a tree? Oh, imagine that, I see other dots in my hutch, too! Here's a close up of what the tiny fabric balls look like. Some turn out shabbier than others. If you win this garland, it might look a bit different than now because I keep finding the most adorable fabrics that I want to add and I've bought more buttons too so I think I'll try doubling them!


I'm having so much fun making these one of a kind garlands and guess what? I've sold 2 of them! That's right- and I don't even have a shop!

All YOU have to do for a chance to win this garland is leave a comment on this post. If you link up for today's Dotty Hop Day and show YOUR DOTS, you'll be entered twice!

Want to link up with me for Dotty Hop Day?


Here are the rules:


* Make a post showing something with DOTS. Easy, huh?


*A mention and/or link back to Cutie Pie Cottage would also be so very DOTTY of you! ☺


* Feel free to grab my cute kitty button (Made by Imagimeri!)


* You can also link up to this blog hop by using the linky option below this post. Then we can all see YOUR DOTS! (Please bear with me as I learn how to set up a linky!) Since there is RED in my garland, *I'm* linking up with Sue over at It's A Very Cherry World for Rednesday. Thanks for hosting, Sue! (And isn't THIS kitty cute, too?)Good luck to all who REALLY want to win! I will draw the winner on my birthday, Monday October 3rd and I will announce the winner on next week's Dotty Hop Day on Tuesday!



Every woman in the world is special but my blog readers and commenters are the best! Never commented before? Don't be shy! I love making new friends!

Have a great day!

Love this tiny dots garland.
Yesterday as I was showing Hubby the Hexie Puffs I've been obsessed with making this past week, he commented that they would make a great banner/garland.
After seeing your dotties, I think I'm going to string 'em and hang 'em.

LOVE the garland! This garland would be PERFECT for me to take to California when I move! The hubby is in the Marines, so it seems I must travel for a bit. I will only be there for 3 months, so I will have to be selective in what I take and leave most of my vintage lovelies behind. Hope your birthday is fabulous!!! :)

Holly,
We love your garland is so cute and original anyone one be happy to display it! Sorry we didn't get back to you, we are both working long hours and trying to complete projects we started for the holidays. We couldn't find anything dotty? I know we have somethings dotty we just can't find them. We need to get dots because we love them :) Hopefully we will get some soon because we want to be in on the fun! We are also going away over Thanksgiving weekend to visit Grandmom Betty for about two weeks. We want to wish you a Happy early Birthday also!
