3 Ring Cottage's First Giveaway

Well, shortly after I posted this, my 200th follower joined in.  Now, I have 204!  That is 199 more than I ever thought I would have.  Thanks to anyone who has hosted a link party or who has mentioned this little blog on their blog.  With out you, nobody but my five trusty peeps (my husband, son, neighbor Kim, pal Jennie and her mom, Kay) would ever know about this blog.  It boggles my mind that 199 strangers find something interesting enough here that they want to keep checking in.  I don't have the most beautiful pictures like this blog or the humor of this blog (yet also has some awesome projects) or the wit of this blog or the sweetness of this blog or the inspiration of this blog and this blog  or the creativity of this blog or the freshness of this blog.  So, I don't know how I got this many followers in just 6 months of blogging but I really appreciate it.

So, as promised, here is my first giveaway.  Yep, I said it..."GIVEAWAY".  I never thought I would have a giveaway but this 200th follower thing is huge to me and a giveaway seems like the right way to celebrate it. First up: What is the Giveaway you ask?

The giveaway prize is this pair of vintage depression glass lamps.  They are old but have been rewired because the old cloth covered cords were frayed and unsafe. They have little silver metal accents some of which have the perfect of touch of rust on them.  They have a couple of little chips that are hard to see but are there.  That adds to the character of them.  They are small, about 10 inches high or so.  They are cute.  I have a couple of pairs similar to these and have used them on bedside tables, in the kitchen, in the dining room, on a desk...it's endless.
Heck, I'll even throw in the bandana for a Texas touch.

Next:  How do you get these?  Let's think of 3 ways to enter.

1:  Leave a comment, hopefully nice.
2:  Let me know if you are one of those 204 followers or you can become one.
3:  Grab the giveaway button and place on your blog OR just post about it.  Let me know.

The giveaway will be open until midnight Sunday, June 20.  I'll announce the winner on Monday.  That gives me a week to figure out random generator thing or some other creative fair way to pick a winner. 

Did I cover everything?  Did I miss any details?  Okay, let's play!
