Bella Inspirations Giveaway

When my sweet and super talented friend Laurie with  Bella Inspirations contacted me about hosting a giveaway I jumped at her offer.  I am one of Laurie's biggest fans so of course I know the gorgeous things she creates and carries in her Etsy shop.  Not only will you find the vintage inspired pillows and burlap table runners that Laurie is known for, but also wonderful vintage items.  Below is just a sample of some of her collection.






Here is a introduction from Laurie as to how Bella Inspirations collection began.

In June 2008, I was abruptly terminated from my position as a Broker Liaison, a direct result of the slumping housing market in Southern California. Shortly thereafter, my dear friend Jennifer, encouraged me to launch my own business - which was always my dream, so it was either sink or swim. I began my Etsy shop last year with my staple French inspired burlap table runners with much success. As time went on, Bella evolved into offering not only the runners and various handmade pieces, but also beautiful vintage antique items as well. I am truly living my dream!

Please also visit Laurie's wonderful blog  Bella Inspirations.

Now for the giveaway!

Many of you have seen Fifi O'Neill's book,  Romantic Prairie Style.  One of Laurie's beautiful burlap table runners is featured in this new book.  Now one of my readers will have the chance to win a similar table runner!



The runner is handmade, printed on both ends and measures 72 x 18 inches.

There are two chances to enter the giveaway.  Please leave a separate comment for each.

1. Visit  Bella Inspirations Etsy shop and then come back here
and leave a comment letting me know what your favorite item is.

2.  Add this giveaway to your sidebar or blog about it.

Giveaway will end at Midnight on May 12, 2011.  A winner will be chosen randomly and emailed the following day. You do not have to have a blog to enter but I must have a way to contact
you should you win.  The giveaway is open to those within the continental USA.

To win the giveaway you do not have to be a follower of  No Minimalist Here or Bella Inspirations.  We always appreciate our followers, and if you like what you see,  we would love to have you join us.    

Best of luck! 

Hugs,
Sherry
