Annie Sloan Giveaway ends TONIGHT


I cannot think of a better way to start the new year than as the winner of this huge Annie Sloan giveaway, courtesy of my friend Virginia!

I know the holidays have been nutty ~ I have neglected to publicize this as much as I could have, as we lost my grandmother right before Christmas.  She was 94 & lived a long & happy life, and she died in her sleep.  She was able to live independently in her apartment (in a retirement community) until she died, which gave her great joy.  What a blessing for her, to pass peacefully in her sleep!  

But the time is NOW to enter the giveaway… Right now we have EIGHTEEN entries on the blog.  Now, don't get me wrong, that is great for those 18 people ;)  But don't you want a chance to win also?

If so, just leave a comment here, or read below for your other opportunities to win!!

This giveaway is sponsored by Annie Sloan as well as all of her North American stockists, to not only spread holiday cheer but also to get the word out about the amazing tour coming up.  My friend Virginia, of PAINT (you may also know her from The Southern Institute of Faux Finishing) has offered A Few Good Pieces the opportunity to do the drawing for the PAINT winner!

How do you enter the drawing?  There are several ways…

*First, go visit Annie Sloan Unfolded and check out the 2012 US Tour information.  Perhaps Annie is coming to your town or an area near you?!  Learn more about what the tour has to offer ~ anyone who has ever used Annie Sloan products knows how fabulous they are… if you haven't jumped into the world of Annie Sloan yet, then this is the perfect time!

*Next, go check out Annie Sloan's blog, become a follower there & comment with "American Tour 2012"… who knows what you'll find on Annie's blog?

*Then, leave a comment here on my blog letting me know what you found over at Annie's place ~ I can't wait to hear what you discover!

*For even another entry, go to Virginia's blog PAINT & leave a comment there… and for one more entry 'like' PAINT on facebook (you'll be glad you did!).

PHEW ~ I'm worn out from the excitement already :)

Our drawing for A Few Good Pieces & PAINT will be on December 31 so enter now!!
